Sail with the best

Sail Date: February 2011
Destination: South Pacific
Embarkation: Other
My husband and I joined friends we'd previously met on a smaller ship (Seabourn Spirit departing Singapore to Dubai in 2008). We decided to try the newer, larger ship the Seabourn Sojourn and thoroughly loved it. The best part for me was the large area called Seabourn Square with coffee bar, library, computer center and concierge services. Everyone seemed to gather there often just for a chat and read the morning papers over coffee, which by the way, was pretty good. This is a fantastic idea especially if you just want some "alone" time or want to get up early and not disturb your partner.

Staff and bar staff were fabulous - couldn't fault anyone.

Restaurant staff and food great.

The worst thing for us was the way some people decided that the double lounge chairs were theirs and often saved them by putting books and towels on them early in the morning which has always been a no no on other ships, but we did sort that lot out.

We anchored in Padang More Bay, Bali, Indonesia so there wasn't much to see here.

Also called into Sandakan Malaysia for just a few hours. We wanted to visit the proboscis monkeys but didn't have enough time so just visited the orangutans in the forest. Only saw three so wasn't really worth the effort Less

Cabin review: V6721 Veranda Suite

Great suite with balcony. V1 - V6 rooms are all the same so it doesn't really matter what deck you are on. The whole ship is very quiet and people are encouraged not to disturb their neighbours. Not one complaint about noise. Didn't find the balcony that much of an advantage as we were travelling in very hot humid weather so never really opened the door much.

Port and Shore Excursions

In Adelaide 8 of us organised a cab service from the ship to drive us up to the Barossa Valley for the day for lunch and wine tasting. Our driver then drove us around the city so we could enjoy the sights, then back to the ship by 4 pm as we were sailing at 6pm. Very easy to organise a cab to do the wine tasting.

Our first port of call was Melbourne. Very easy to catch a cab or the cruise line has buses going into the city all day so getting around was very easy.
