Seabourn Spirit Entertainment

Editor Rating

The stage in the show lounge is just right for big voices, and that's what Seabourn offers. On our sailing, three singers (one being the cruise director) did solo cabaret acts and joined together for a highly enjoyable night of Broadway show tunes. Also onboard was a four-piece orchestra/dance band. As an alternative to a show, a movie may be shown outside on the Sun Deck. Most people are quite capable of entertaining themselves during the day with a good book or conversation, and on port days they want to be out exploring. However, there are a few activities including talks by guest lecturers (professors, statesmen, authors, or stars of stage and screen), cooking demonstrations, wine tastings, bridge play and golf putting competitions.

Seabourn Spirit Public Rooms

Public Rooms

The Spirit is comfortable, but decor-wise, nothing is particularly exciting. The Club with its tan leather chairs and glass wall connecting to the small casino is about as stylish as this ship gets, and a nice venue for before- or after-dinner drinks and dancing. The Horizon Lounge is your typical observation lounge with floor-to-ceiling, forward-facing windows, and is underutilized (it is open for Early Risers breakfast and afternoon tea, but mostly closed at night). The Restaurant is a low-ceiling affair, and The Amundsen Lounge is a show lounge big enough to hold all passengers. The ship also has a small computer center with e-mail access, a tiny library/video library with music and books-on-disc CD's, a card room, and a small boutique (more utilitarian than enticing).

Seabourn Spirit Spa & Fitness

Spa & Fitness

The Seabourn Spirit is fitted with a water sports marina that can be lowered when the ship is at anchor and is equipped with windsurfers, sail boats, Zodiacs, water skis, a banana boat and snorkeling equipment. In the center of the marina is a steel mesh cage that forms a swimming pool.

The ship also has a small, oddly placed swimming pool on its top deck (it is in a shaded area in the center of the ship and there is no seating around it) as well as three whirlpools (including one hidden in the prow that couples can reserve for a romantic evening complete with champagne and caviar). For two hours during days at sea, via the line's "Massage Moments" program, free mini-massages are available on the Sun Deck.

Cushioned deck chairs are plentiful on the Sun Deck, which is separate from the pool. Fitness facilities include workout, steam and treatment rooms, and a beauty salon -- because space is tight in the gym, exercise classes are held in The Club.

Having sailed on Seabourn before and loved it, we wanted to try one of the smaller Seabourn ships before the transfer to Windstar was completed next year. So we chose this Adriatic itinerary. As far as we are concerned, Seabourn provides ... Read more
