The best food of all the small luxury cruise ships

LOVED the Seabourn Ovation and our Iberian cruise

We chose this cruise because we had not been to Spain (except for Barcelona which we love), Lisbon or Porto, Gibralter or Morocco. The ports of call and shore excursions were fantastic. We saw many beautiful ...

High price - low budget

Since 1999 my wife and I have sailed 300+ days with Seabourn. It goes without saying that over the years we have been very satisfied. Not so with our last two week cruise on the Encore in the Med. It has been a ...

We chose Seabourn as we like smaller ships, fewer passengers; we're a couple in our 60's / 70's. We like adventure, travel, we don't need a lot of theme entertainment, and we are foodies; food and wine are ...
