Our first experience with Seabourn was in 2009. Our Norwegian vessel was docked near a Seabourn ship. Seeing how the Seabourn guests were welcomed aboard was an eye opener. In 2014, we took a deep breath and book the Greek Islands cruise on the Sojourn. A big step for us, but we wanted the all inclusive experience. i don't have the time or patience to attempt a complete review, but I confess to being a true believer in the Seabourn experience. I will never forget the staff members standing in front of the gangway cheering and applauding us as we came on board! So cool. We loved our cabin! It was big, luxurious, had a walk in closet and a bathtub. The veranda was big and private, and there was a table and chairs for in room dining in style. The staff were amazing. The first day I stopped by the Pool deck bar for a cocktail. The next day as I walked by the same bar, the bartender asked if I wanted the same cocktail I had previously ordered. Every one seemed to know our names. All the facilities were first rate, and the food was fabulous. The chef hosted an event where he made a fabulous paella in front of us while he chatted away about Seabourn, food, and his life experiences. We got to attend a shore event in the ruins of Ephesus where we were seated outside the coliseum and fed wine and snacks while being entertained by a string quartet...on the house. Seabourn gave us the cruise experience of a lifetime. Worth every penny. If you are considering stepping up from the more popular big ship cruises, we encourage you to consider going all the way to the finest...Seabourn. Read Less

The Seabourn Odyssey is a beautiful ship. Almost all aspects of the cruise from Venice to Athens were faultless. The suite was delightful and well maintained by the stewardess/housekeeper. The food was absolutely outstanding in all the restaurant outlets. Although the ship was full, there was never a problem finding a seat whether on the deck or in the public rooms. I would recommend it without reservation. The only criticism I would level relates to the internet and wifi facilities. They were consistently slow or very slow. I understand that there are technical reasons for this which may be outside Seabourn's control, but the price charged for internet usage is very expensive. A week's package was $249 with daily charges being proportionately higher. Not at all good value for money given the poor service provided. That, however, is my only criticism of what was otherwise a lovely experience. Read Less

my husband and i took a seabourn cruise for our 20th anniversary. we had never cruised on a small ship, but did many family cruises on celebrity, princess and cunard. we decided after this cruise, that you cannot call a trip like this cruising, it is called yachting. the ship is the perfect size, 450 guests, with ample space for everyone whether on the pool deck or dining. it all just works! the staff cannot do enough for you. they go above and beyond anticipating your needs. i loved the fact that all food and beverages (with VERY few exceptions) were included. they do not nickel and dime you. the staff does not expect tips. they are all just there to make you happy! we were in a cat V2 suite with a verandah on deck 5. it was the most spacious suite i have ever been in with the most closet space ever! my husband is an over packer and he found space for everything. the one drawback to our suite is that the verandah has a white wall, it is not glass, so you couldn't see through it if you were sitting down. not really a huge issue for me, but my husband did say, the next time we get a glass balcony. embarkation was a little bit of a hassle because there was a festival in venice, so the ship was docked 20 minutes away, so we had to take a shuttle bus from the pier to the ship. too bad we couldn't cruise out of venice, i am sure it would have been a little more scenic. we travelled from venice to athens and the ports were nice, mostly small and quiet (not overrun with tourists), which is nice. saw some of the local culture and sights just from walking off the ship. all of the ports we went to are ones i will most likely never be back to, so it was a good way to see them. I will say, the scenery was absolutely gorgeous in this part of the world. for us, it is not as much about the ports as the ship experience. food was incredible! breakfast, lunch and dinners were amazing. the wine pairings were always spectacular. loved the caviar party on the pool deck in the afternoon, definitely memorable. the guests on the ship were very international, mostly european, some americans, some south americans, australians, etc. everyone was very friendly and open to chatting. the nighttime entertainment was fun, nothing too grand, but enough to entertain you for a little while until we went to the casino and club.
