2-5 Cruises • Age 80s

Our first Seabourn cruise. Istanbul/Venice 4 June 2016 14 days.(Other cruises Matson's Monterey, Avalon, Regent). Short summary - top class, giving us the relaxed and comfortable, quiet holiday we expected. Staff prior to departure in Seabourn's Sydney office pleasant and helpful and, importantly, extremely efficient. Boarding in Istanbul so fast and smooth I can't remember the detail. ...

First (of many) Seabourn Cruise

Review for Seabourn Odyssey to Europe - Black Sea

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

Our first ever cruise and it lived up to our expectations. Our Cabin, Veranda Suite, Deck 8 was roomy with a walk in closet and very good bathroom. Balcony not huge but big enough for both of us to have our feet up on the lounger. The restaurants were all good and we particularly liked being able to eat outside in the Colonnade as well as round the pool in the Patio Grill. Not ...

Seabourn is not quite Silversea

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

I have travelled on four previous Silversea cruises (Shadow and Spirit) and was keen to try Seabourn (Odyssey). It always seemed that people had a preference for one or the other, so I wanted to try first hand. I think that was my mistake. If I had never travelled on the Silversea class of cruising, I am certain that I would have felt that Seabourn was outstanding, but given that they compete in ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

Early 50's couple here, booked this cruise about 3 months prior to departure in part due to interesting itineary (Nessebur, Varna, Constanta and Sinup) and positive feedback from friends who had sailed Seabourn in past. We have sailed with SilverSea twice before and found them a bit too overly formal and without many dining options. The Odyssey was the perfect size, a large ship with several ...

We had previously cruised Seabourn Pride to the Baltics and Seabourn Sojourn (twice) to South America andWestern Mediterranean. Seabourn Odyssey is an identical ship to Sojourn and sister ship Quest but it was pleasing to see that the service, food and all other components of the cruise were consistent with our previous Seabourn experiences ... Simply stunning. Our itinerary this time took us ...

Silver Anniversary, First Cruise

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

For our 25th wedding anniversary, we were very lucky to be given the chance to take the trip of a lifetime--a gift from my grandfather. As my wife has always wanted to see Santorini, and Seabourn's Odyssey was going to be there on our anniversary (with a late departure so that we could see the sunset in Oia) it seemed like the perfect opportunity. I would highly recommend working with a travel ...

My wife and I are back from our first Seabourn cruise, boarding the ship in Istanbul on August 31, 2013, and concluding on September 14, 2013 in Athens. First the positives: The ship is beautiful and is cosmetically well maintained. Food, the various restaurants and food services aboard the Odyssey were outstanding. The variety of wines and caviar and champagne were impressive. Entertainment was ...

First Time Cruiser

The cruise: 15 nights on the Quest from Istanbul to Athens passing through Turkey, Israel, Egypt and Greece. Our background, second time on Seabourn, last time was on one of the smaller ships, about 5 cruises on Silversea, we usually cruise in Asia as we're based there, this time we really wanted to go a little further. Overall this was probably our best cruise ever, we had a load of luck, the ...

SEABOURN ODYSSYS -ABSOLUTELY THE BEST EVER

10+ Cruises • Age 80s

We've been cruising since 1989, starting that year on Canberra (great ship). Since then we've moved up the quality scale a bit and over the last 7 or 8 cruises have come to prefer the Grills on Cunard. However, on 6 July 2012 we flew out to Istanbul on BA and joined Seabourn Odyssey the following day for a seven day cruise to Piraeus via some of the Turkish & Greek islands. From the moment we ...
