4.5 / 5.0
Cruise Critic Editor Rating
Onboard, Seabourn is at the top of the luxury cruise game with intuitive service, superb cuisine, relatively inclusive extras (no charge for cocktails, coffees or fitness classes), and an atmosphere that is elegant -- but unpretentious.
All cabins are suites, and they are well equipped with designer soaps, and all the latest and greatest amenities (flat-screen televisions, Bose Wave sound systems, and so forth). A complimentary bottle of Champagne greets you in your cabin. Bar drinks are complimentary and refilled promptly. With an abundance of public space and few fellow passengers, you might feel you have the vessel to yourself -- no annoying crowds or lines here.
Seabourn's Odyssey class ships, while appealing to a broad mix of ages (from 40-something and above), offer a variety of itineraries from the offbeat to more mainstream calls, in order to have a broad appeal and continue to attract new passengers to the line.
While most of your fellow passengers are likely to be American, Seabourn appeals to travelers from a variety of countries, particularly the English-speaking South Africa, Australia and Great Britain, among others. All are likely to be well-off and well-traveled.
