Still Fabulous after all these years!
My husband and I first sailed aboard Seabourn in the Mediterranean in 2005 and then again in 2011 aboard the Seabourn Legend, one of their smaller ships. Those two voyages turned us into small-ship cruise enthusiasts. We remembered how amazingly friendly and attentive the entire crew was towards all the passengers—their willingness to do anything to make our day or evening better pampered on both cruises. Then add the fabulous food and unique ports, and we were big fans of Seabourn for life.
Life and circumstance prevented us from cruising with Seabourn until this past summer when we went aboard the Seabourn Odyssey with friends, cruising through the inland passage of Alaska. We were excited to be back on Seabourn again but were a little apprehensive to see if they could live up to the expectations we remembered them by years ago. We had hoped we hadn’t over-sold the experience to our friends going on their first cruise. Much could have changed in the twelve years since we last cruised on Seabourn. I was a little more apprehensive when I learned that the Odyssey was one of their oldest ships and had been sold to a Japanese ship company and was being leased back by Seabourn until 2024.
Deluxe Veranda: the cabin was very spacious with a very comfortable king bed and bedding. We slept like babies. It was nice to sit out on our Veranda Deck as we cruised through the Misty Fjords and Hubbard's Bay. The bath included a full size tub but a very small shower. I would have preferred a big show and no tub, but everyone's preferences are different.
