Almost Perfection. Missing the laundromat, expanded sushi menu, longer swimming pool or endless pool to swim laps, and more than one night at the TK grill. Colonnade was an improvement over their smaller ships, the retreat was not ... Read more

Chose Seabourn as have had two very good cruises with them. Rome to Venice sounded a great trip. Encore was new this year and wanted to see how a 600 capacity ship compared with the smaller Odyssey. Comparisons on the whole were good. Did ... Read more

Having cruised about 10 times with Princess and twice with Seabourn, there were a number of things that did not meet our expectations; mainly food preparation. Ingredients were excellent and in most cases dishes are excellent, until the ... Read more
