I chose this cruise based on itinerary and the belief that Seabourn was a top of the line cruise experience. We were able to secure an upgrade an ended up with a Penthouse Suite. The accommodations are excellent. The room far exceeded expectations. The bathroom was large with a separate room for the toilet which included its own basin. Very private and nice. There was a jetted tube and the lovely Molton Brown toiletries. Our cabin stewardess was wonderful. That being said the rest of the experience was not at all what we expected. From the wine selections to the food - very disappointing. The Thomas Keller restaurant where you could only dine twice was underwhelming. Lobster was under cooked. I only eat seafood and throughout the trip I always had to ask for something other than what was on the menu. The only fish they offer as an daily option is Salmon - my least favorite fish. The lobsters were unlike any I ever had before. I live in Miami and am used to fine fresh seafood. These were not either Maine or Florida lobsters. I don't know where they came from. Don't eat caviar yet found that those who do could get it any time they wanted. Why no decent fish available? They managed to find a piece of mahi once and a tuna filet. The Seabourn Square served the same finger sandwiches everyday. Mostly bread with very little filling. Same cookies and cakes at the Square and for tea. The coffee was always luke warm and so strong it was undrinkable. I finally learned to order a pot of hot water to dilute it. I head the same complaint from others that I mentioned it to as well. Unfortunately we took the last smoking voyage and paid the price. The observation bar with a wonderful piano bar could not be frequented after 8 p.m. due to the heavy smoke inside. We heard from many the same disappointments.They said not to judge Seabourn by this cruise. I swore this would be my first and last Seabourn cruise, but heard the reason this one was so lacking was because the top crew members had been transferred over to the new Encore. Just found an itinerary I like for the Mediterranean so may give them a second chance. I would never go on the Quest again. Read Less

We have taken 10+ cruises and although this was not the worst, it was subpar in bang for the buck. They charged for Wi-Fi. there is a one quality restaurant but the food choice is fixed differently each night. Because of weather we spent two days at sea not being able to get into ports but the Casino was not open except in the evening. When I complained, I was told that it was not staffed because we were supposed to be in port. Shows were good for a small ship but no up to the standard that we have seen on Regent. They claim that it is all inclusive but tipping is expected. Shore excursions are extremely expensive. We paid $250pp for a tour of Bar Harbor and a lobster bake. It turns out the there was a rainstorm that made the national news but they would not cancel because Seabourn claimed that this was the choice of the shore operator and they had nothing to do with it. As a result we were unable to make it up Cadillac mountain or see anything because of the downpour. We got a typical 1# lobster dinner that could be bought on the island for $18. We were charged $175 and $150 for transport from our hotel to the ship and from the ship to the airport both of which were a 10-15 minute ride. Cabin was the same size as on Regent but more space on the veranda and less in the room. This was my first and last with Seabourn. I have already booked a cruise with Regent (my favorite) for next year. Read Less
