This was our first time on Seabourn, but will not be the last. The suites are expansive and well appointed. Our only complaint there would be the ridiculously small TVs that are in the cabin. Public spaces are well done for this size ship. Th entertainment was excellent actually. The four singers and two dancers that were part of the Seabourn team were some of the best that I have seen on any Cruise line. The food was always top notch, we never had a complaint at any restaurant. Now the only complaint and it is minor. The Restaurant Wait staff always seemed a little out of sync. Many times throughout the cruise we heard "sorry we're a little busy", or " we'll be with you in a minute". Even at the signature restaurant The Grill, we waited quite awhile for any service. The maitre D finally came over and asked if we had any service yet.It wasn't awful just not what we expected from Seabourn, and we had this happen repeatedly. The clientele on our cruise was definitely well heeled, and well traveled, and tends to be older. This is NOT a cruise line for children. All in all it is a luxury experience well worth the cost.

Missed a prior cruise. Seabourn was good enough to let me apply that payment to this cruise. The cruise was very relaxing and a nice way to see some towns that would have been hard to fly to or drive to. Seabourn is very good about almost always providing you service exactly when you want it. You eat when you feel like it, not at an assigned time, check-in to the ship usually only takes a few minutes. The crew is amazing about remembering your name. This was my first cruise with sea days, two of them out of a ten day cruise. Overall, my wife and I found it very relaxing although I missed the opportunity to go onshore every day. Food options are excellent and portions of most items small which allows for a multi-course meal without getting stuffed. For internet addicts, you will be able to use your phone as a hot spot (if you have the US-Canada plan) during almost the entire trip thru the St. Lawrence Seaway, in all ports, and usually for about an hour or so when leaving or entering ports of the Atlantic.

I have to start out by saying this was our 5th Seabourn Cruise and our second Montreal to Ft. Lauderdale cruise with Seabourn. We did the same cruise last year with near perfect fall like weather in very port. This year's weather was not our friend. It was in the 30's to 40's, cold and rainy most of the time in Canada all the way down to our first day and night in New York. Yet, we loved both cruise because we were on Seabourn. We were greeted, Seabourn style on a cold Thursday afternoon at the port of Montreal (always under construction) and issued inside the main lounge to register and pick up our key cards. "Champagne sir?" "But of course." Less than 10 minutes to sign in and off to the Main Restaurant for lunch while we waited for our room to become available. Seabourn ships are always on one long continuous cruise so the restaurants are always in "full service mode" serving main courses everyday. While some passengers are getting on or off that day, others were staying on and this was just another day on the ship. At 2pm we made our way to our room to find our bags waiting for us. Our room stewardess arrived within a few minutes to introduce herself and of offer us a 'welcome aboard' glass of champagne. Ninety percent of the suites on the 3 Seabourn ships are exactly the same so we love the familiarity of arriving in same room cruise after cruise. After 76 days sailing on Seabourn My wife and I have our 'preassigned storage spaces' (and the suites have copious amounts of storage including a walk-in closet). We choose Seabourn first for the food because, at home, my wife and I eat the best quality (and most healthy) food possible. I battle migraine headaches and avoid any and all spicy food and only eat unprocessed - high quality foods, both of which I can get on Seabourn. Their chiefs are always willing to cook my food any way I ask. This year we had the great pleasure of eating in the new Thomas Keller restaurant and what an event it was. Arguably the finest meals we've ever had, including the best lamb chops and salmon ever. The service was unpretentious and absolutely top notch. We were worried about loosing Restaurant 2 but the Thomas Keller Restaurant is a fabulous addition to Seabourn. Also, there were several times we were able to order Thomas Keller items in the other dining venues. One example was ordering THE BEST Thomas Keller buttermilk fried chicken in the Colonnades Restaurant one night. We regret eating too much chicken that night! The second reason we choose Seabourn is for their service which is second to none. We now have 90 days on Seabourn and have had only excellent service. The staff learns your name by day 3 or 4 and we are now seeing our favorite people from cruise to cruise. One of our favorite staff members, Tammy, was recently promoted and is charge of the Bar staff (which is a very big team). Her staff did a fantastic job on this cruise. The third reason we love Seabourn is there various forms of entertainment throughout the cruise. The ships carry a max of 425 passengers but the entertainment consists of; 2 different (and excellent) lounge singers with bands, a production company style group, 2 or 3 guest performers, and local performers who come on board for 1 or 2 shows during the cruise. Couple this with the "Rock the Boat" deck parties and the dance till late with the wifie to a live band every night. The main lounge is never pack nor does it have a bad seat but the entertainment never disappoints. What we love most is the consistency Seabourn offers. As I said in my title, the weather kind of sucked but we loved this cruise. We ate well, were treated well, were entertained while being on an excellent ship. The weather outside was frightful, but inside it was so delightful - (sorry ;). We have our first Oceania 7 day cruise coming up in December. I'll report back on how it compares. Read Less

This was our first time on Seabourn and we were extremely pleased. Both embarkation and disembarkation were quick and went smoothly. The ship is on the smaller side compared to the average cruise ship, but it was immaculate, and very well maintained. Our cabin was large enough that my husband and I had separate areas to read or relax. The bathroom had a shower and a tub with Molton Brown toiletries.They had 2 small shops, a small casino, a library/computer area, bars, and an outside deck with a swimming pool, hot tubs and plenty of loungers. The restaurant was very pretty or you could also eat at the Patio which was outdoors by the swimming pool or at their buffet style restaurant, which was kept so clean. We never had to wait for a table. I can't say enough about the food. We did not have one bad meal in 10 days. Wait, we did not have one mediocre meal in 10 days. Every meal we had was outstanding, served professionally and always with a smile. They changed their choices daily producing gourmet at every meal. They offered good wine with dinner, and top shelf liquor throughout the ship. Their entertainment was very good, but limited. They have a piano player, a 3 person band, and a group of singers that performed in the theater in the evening or elsewhere around the ship. They were very talented, and a joy to listen to. They brought a comedian on board as well as 2 lecturers. Even though the entertainers were very good, we would have liked more options. Most importantly, we have never had better service on any of our 27 cruises. All of the officers, staff, and crew were pleasant, courteous, warm, helpful, and always professional. The officers mingled with the passengers when they could, as did the entertainers. The entire staff helped to make our vacation a very positive experience. I can't say enough about them. Quebec City, Halifax, Charlottetown, Bar Harbor and Boston were great ports. I recommend shore excursions in the smaller cities in between. The citizens of Saguenay were so happy to have us visit. They were voted the best cruise port for a reason. Baie-Comeau and Gaspe were too small to just roam around for the afternoon. Overall, it was a GREAT cruise. Read Less

We boarded in Montreal and the process was fairly smooth. The cruise staff helped those who were not able to board on their own (pushed wheelchairs, carried luggage,helped with umbrellas). The cabins were very large,walk-in closet,bathroom with 2 sinks,tub and separate shower. The ship is only 2 years old and very well appointed. The central square contains a coffee bar, library, many computers, and all the cruise service staff was located here. The spa and salon is very comprehensive and the exercise/fitness area is the best we've seen. All the equipment a fitness junky would ever need. Free classes in yoga,tai-chi, and pilates were offered. The lecturers on board were very good and lectures were also available on cabin televisions.The in-room tv's had lots of movies, ship info, and plenty of channels of entertainment and news. The food is very good in the buffet and service was impeccable. The main dining room food is very gourmet and service can be spotty or slow. The ship also has 2 other dining venues--the poolside Patio Grill which is open for lunch & dinner and mainly is a chop house, and Restaurant 2 which offers "small bites".Wine,beer,and spirits are of the highest quality and always complimentary. Room service is efficient and dinner can be served in courses if preferred. Entertainment is typical for a smaller ship (a small band,a singer,piano player,a few dancers,etc.)The on-board activities were the usual bridge lessons,trivia games,crafts. There is absolutely nothing for children. Shore excursions were handled very well and the ship had local tourist personnel passing out maps and info about the towns for those who wanted to explore on their own. Because of the storm we had to miss a few ports and spend 5 days at sea. The staff was superb at filling our empty days with more lectures and extra galley and bridge visits and cooking demos. Because there were only 420 passengers, disembarkation was a breeze. Of course we were disappointed not to go to the ports we missed (Martha's Vineyard and Charleston) as they were a big reason we chose this cruise.However, hurricane Sandy changed our schedule. But Seabourn offered us a BIG discount on our next cruise with them. Nice touch. Read Less
