First time on Seabourn
"Our prior cruise experience has been on Princess so we don't have another small ship experience to compare this one to but we definitely enjoyed the overall small ship experience.We ate one dinner at the Colonnade and my wife felt it was the best dinner of the cruise (Spanish Market night) with a great variety of Spanish dishes...."Read More

Review for Seabourn Ovation to Europe - Western Mediterranean

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

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 ...

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 ...

Review for Seabourn Ovation to Transatlantic

We chose this cruise because it was transatlantic and had few ports (2) before arrival in Portugal. Due to Covid we were craving a get away but safely considering infection control etc.. We have a long history with the incredible staff and ships of Seabourn. But in today's environment you must be cautious. We purchased, as we usually do, one of the most expensive suites aboard this ship and ...

horrific experience

Review for Seabourn Ovation to Caribbean - All

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

ship was changed from Sojourn to Ovation (slightly larger) and it was impressed on me that I must read the T & Cs - which I did. Seabourn, unknown to me when I went on board, already had Covid cases on board and which spread rapidly round crew, staff and guests. Isolation seemed chaotic and safety measures were lax - I was passed in corridors by staff exiting Covid cabins in full PPE and not ...

we have been avid silver seas fans. unfortunately on our last cruise, they dropped the ball in so many ways. we had been on seabourn exactly twelve years ago to the week, that was on the odyssey. we decided to give seabourn another try. we were thrilled with the experience. cruising in the time of covid requires a tremendous amount of nerve and patience. we had to have pcr's test, then a nasal ...

We booked this cruise by default. My DH and I were supposed to sail to the Amazon March 2020 but Covid stopped that. Then we rebooked for Australia - cancelled, rebooked for Bbaltic- cancelled, etc. Finally Greece opened and we jumped. This trip would have been iconic if the weather was bit cooler, but we were so thankful to sail again and on this amazing ship. There were six in our party. We ...

We are avid cruisers (7 lines) and this is our 4th with Seabourn. This was suppose to be our 'celebratory' 40th wedding anniversary dream vacation! The corona virus situation was a fast paced, evolving situation which we were acutely aware of. We landed in Hong Kong, our start point on Jan 31/20. The WHO had declared the Corona Virus a "global health emergency" the day before. ...

We belong to the Frank Family Wine group, which chose a cruise on the Ovation in January 2020. Overall, the cruise was very good. The personnel are very friendly and, for the most part, efficient. Our statement was spacious, though a little narrow. Our room steward, who was very friendly and who tried to please, at times missed some basics. For example, once she forgot to leave us any bath ...

We have cruised quite a bit with a number of cruise lines and enjoyed most of them. Seabourn had been on our wish list as we had heard good things. We enjoy Asia, have good friends in Singapore, and the cruise offered a good blend of ports and sea day. From arriving at the pier to departing the ship the service we received was outstanding in every way. There is no shortage of staff who are ...

Here it is October 2020 and I've begun getting promotional literature from Seabourn. In the midst of the plague I must have forgotten to tell them how much I didn't like my cruise with them in December of last year. First, the good points. Great stateroom. Clean, spacious, nice bathroom, comfortable bed, quiet (!), easy access to the private balcony. NIce ship. Not too big, not too small, well ...
