First time on Seabourn

Review for Seabourn Ovation to Europe - Western Mediterranean

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

For our anniversary cruise, my wife and I chose Seabourn Ovation and a 7 day Mediterranean trip. The ship is very well appointed and while upscale it felt comfortable and welcoming to us. The embarkation process in Civitavecchia (Rome) was very easy and quick. We were in our cabin within a few minutes of arriving at the dock. Our suite host and cabin attendant welcomed us and provided helpful ...

Review for Seabourn Encore to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

We have about a dozen cruises under our belts split roughly evenly between Seabourn, Silversea and Crystal. Our last cruise was Quest in 2019. Obviously things have changed a bit in the past 3 years and to be clear do recognise that all hospitality venues have had serious challenges whether land or sea based. I did a live blog which can amplify issues so am trying here to take a step back. It is ...

This was our first cruise on Seabourn and it was excellent. A week from Athens to Athens with a port of call each day in the Greek Isles and Turkey. The Encore is immaculately maintained and clean. We had excellent service from very friendly staff. Excellent food in the The Restaurant and The Thomas Keller Grill. The entertainment was excellent. Seabourn put on an evening concert in the ...

A Great Luxury Experience of Food and Service

First time Seabourn cruisers. Went with another couple of best friends. The Seabourn experience for us was a splurge and was a wonderful experience. From the roomy cabins to the excellent food. We loved the smaller ship size (500) passengers and the ease of walking to various places on the ship instead of relying on elevators. Embarkation was a little weird. They gave you numbers and were told ...

Very poor communications with customer service

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We chose this cruise because we heard/read that this was a top of the line cruise and we wanted to compare to other cruise lines we've sailed with including some European river cruises. From the time we booked the cruise until we actually embarked, communication and customer service was definitely sub par. All correspondence with customer service was by phone with the exception of booking a ...

We were on board for 24 days, 10 days with our adult family. The family had not sailed with Seabourn, we had done many cruises with Crystal…my DH & I have over 250 days on Seabourn ….we had so many “not to Seabourn standards” that we are booking a SS cruise next! The office in SEA had so much trouble with our OBC that one never came thru at all and one came thru on the last day of the 10 day ...

Not bad

Review for Seabourn Sojourn to Mediterranean

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

First time on Seabourn. Previously a Crystal Cruise Cruiser. The ship is smaller in all respects to Crystal and that took some adjusting to. The rooms are spacious, colonnade and Thomas Keller food fantastic and the restaurant while starting off questionable, ended with good food and service. Ship has everything one could want and I enjoyed meeting folks on excursions. Spa services were ...

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

First time with Seabourn, we were celebrating our 30th anniversary. Maybe our expectations were high based on the cost of this cruise. The embarkation and disembarkation procedures were very smooth. This is a small ship, (about 500 passengers). Our room, #747 had a very spacious bathroom with a shower bigger than normal, double sinks and a bathtub! It has a comfortable king-size bed and ...

Seabourn and Covid

Review for Seabourn Quest to Mediterranean

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

I will not discuss the noticiable drop in service here, just the Covid situation. Seabourn’s attitude is cavalier at best, not even enforcing their own written rules. On day eight of an eleven day cruise, there were seven quarantined rooms on our floor out of 189 passengers on board. Not a peep or warning from company to passengers. “Masks are required to be worn on transportation during any ...

Seabourn is DEFINITELY NOT meeting the 5-star standards for which they were previously known. As Parallel40 correctly pointed out, the Ship's Officers absolutely BUNGLED the handling of the onboard Covid issue. Rather than publicly acknowledging there was, in fact, a small outbreak of Covid among BOTH passengers "&" crew, they simply ignored the issue & acted as if no one would notice the ...
