We're an active, mid-forties, couple who enjoy the freedom to holiday how we want. Seabourn is a significant misfit for people like us.

First of all, there were no people like us on the boat. In five days, we think we at least saw everybody once. There was one other couple our age and they were feeling the same as we did, like misfits. The average age of this cruise couldn't have been less than 65 years old, brought down to that only by the two young teenagers on with their parents. We teased that we were on a floating retirement home.

Seaborn requires a great deal of daily planning. With food only available in 2-hour increments throughout the day (save the room service which was in its own right no better than a hospital cafeteria), with some windows being even tighter, you have to plan your entire day around when you have to eat. We thought this was crazy! As a result of this, we only enjoyed two nice meals in the 5 nights we were on board. The night before last, the straw that broke the camel's back, was the spa that booked us for a 7:30 treatment, ending at 9. We were left with NO time to eat in the restaurant(s)! We were left with ordering room service and sitting in our room to eat after the treatment. Horrible experience.

Cabin Review

Veranda Suite

The room cabin was nice but tired. We liked the dual sinks and bathtub and the walk in closet a huge plus.
