Disapointing, not client focused and oversaling

Review for Seabourn Quest to Panama Canal & Central America

From a global point of view, we think that Silversea is better than Seabourn and gives much more value for money. Positive side: The ship is modern, we liked very much the suite, and there are very nice places such as the Seabourn square, very cosy, very comfortable, as well as the observation lounge. The service was generally very kind and willing to satisfy our needs, which is most ...

For our anniversary cruise, my wife and I chose Seabourn Ovation and a 7 day Mediterranean trip. The ship is very well appointed and while upscale it felt comfortable and welcoming to us. The embarkation process in Civitavecchia (Rome) was very easy and quick. We were in our cabin within a few minutes of arriving at the dock. Our suite host and cabin attendant welcomed us and provided helpful ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

We have about a dozen cruises under our belts split roughly evenly between Seabourn, Silversea and Crystal. Our last cruise was Quest in 2019. Obviously things have changed a bit in the past 3 years and to be clear do recognise that all hospitality venues have had serious challenges whether land or sea based. I did a live blog which can amplify issues so am trying here to take a step back. It is ...

Seabourn Quest's "gimme shelter" Canadian Autumn Cruise disappoints

OVERVIEW I have cruised luxury lines multiple times in the last decade ( sometimes with my husband, sometimes with friends, or alone) and several times since Covid. We are loyal to no line in particular, and prefer to mix and match lines, depending on itinerary and timing. Though we had cruised Seabourn (SB) , and the Quest, prior to the pandemic, this was our first SB post-pandemic cruise. ...

Review for Seabourn Odyssey to Alaska

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We chose this cruise for the itinerary and also to see whether we enjoyed the Seabourn product and typical clientele vibe enough to book the 2024 world cruise. We were blessed with great weather from start to finish so enjoyed the wonders and majesty of the Alaskan fjords in all their glory. The excursions on this trip were certainly pretty pricey but the wildlife sightings we enjoyed - bears ...

Seabourn Venture: Worth the Wait

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Based on our trip to the Antarctic on the Seabourn Quest in 2019 we chose this new expedition ship when we decided to visit Greenland. When completion of the Venture was delayed a total of four times and our initial sailing date was advanced by almost exactly one year we were initially a bit concerned about how things would come together. But to cut to the finish, I guess the time was well spent ...

Excellent Cruise on Encore

This was our first cruise on Seabourn and it was excellent. A week from Athens to Athens with a port of call each day in the Greek Isles and Turkey. The Encore is immaculately maintained and clean. We had excellent service from very friendly staff. Excellent food in the The Restaurant and The Thomas Keller Grill. The entertainment was excellent. Seabourn put on an evening concert in the ...

A Great Luxury Experience of Food and Service

Review for Seabourn Encore to Mediterranean

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

First time Seabourn cruisers. Went with another couple of best friends. The Seabourn experience for us was a splurge and was a wonderful experience. From the roomy cabins to the excellent food. We loved the smaller ship size (500) passengers and the ease of walking to various places on the ship instead of relying on elevators. Embarkation was a little weird. They gave you numbers and were told ...

Very poor communications with customer service

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We chose this cruise because we heard/read that this was a top of the line cruise and we wanted to compare to other cruise lines we've sailed with including some European river cruises. From the time we booked the cruise until we actually embarked, communication and customer service was definitely sub par. All correspondence with customer service was by phone with the exception of booking a ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We were on board for 24 days, 10 days with our adult family. The family had not sailed with Seabourn, we had done many cruises with Crystal…my DH & I have over 250 days on Seabourn ….we had so many “not to Seabourn standards” that we are booking a SS cruise next! The office in SEA had so much trouble with our OBC that one never came thru at all and one came thru on the last day of the 10 day ...
