Trip of a Lifetime with high marks all around

Mar 25th, 2020

We loved everything about this cruise and Seabourn Encore is now at the top of our favorite cruise ship list. The crew onboard was fantastic we met a lot of great travelers onboard some of which have become great friends. We only wished that we had more time in a couple of ports, but other than that, everything was exceptional. The coronavirus was just starting to spread to the US and Europe while we were on the cruise and we were hoping at the end of our cruise we would be quarantined on board as we weren't ready to get off the ship even after 16 days onboard. This was the longest cruise we have done and thought it might too long for us, but because there was so much to do in the ports and the onboard/at sea days were so fun (thanks to the new friends we made), we could have easily stayed on for another 7-14 days. Sadly they made us get off the ship! The memories made on this vacation are ones that I will truly cherish. The new friends made, the stories shared and the overall experience of this trip is beyond words. We were so glad that we opted to cruise on a smaller ship like Encore as the personalized service and more intimate experience was exactly what we had hoped for with this vacation. This was truly a trip of a lifetime for us and I highly recommend to anyone that will stand still long enough to hear about it. My husband and I both agreed that we could easily live in New Zealand or Australia and it would be hard to decide between the two given the opportunity.

Ultimate Cruise on Seabourn

Dec 26th, 2019

Seabourn continues to be a fabulous cruise line. They go above and beyond expectations in every way. We didn’t even feel that we paid much more than on a regular cruise by the time you add tips, drinks and service. We used the Flight Ease program which worked out very well for us. We were also able to stay an extra week in Bali without having to make separate airline reservations. I highly recommend Seabourn to anyone who is considering a luxury cruise. You will never go back to a regular cruise line.

Wonderful experience but we still prefer Seabourn smaller ships

Dec 2nd, 2019

Overall a good experience. We had a good time. We had some concerns about the size of the ship and we still think smaller is better. Our prior experiences with the Sojourn, Pride and Quest were better.

One of the best holidays we’ve had

Nov 14th, 2019

A 19 day cruise with 10 sea days - seemed to me at first that it would be a bit too much of doing nothing. But actually doing nothing is optional as Seabourn ensure there is plenty to occupy those who are less inclined to lie by the pool. As it turned out i thoroughly enjoyed each and every sea day. The Ports we visited were interesting. The on board activities were interesting as were the many fellow passengers we met on board.

Perfect! I love Seabourn. Everybody does! Personal touches and smiling faces. Hugs all around. The crew seem to be enjoying themselves as much as the passengers. A wonderful caring atmosphere all the way????

Seabourn overshadows its competitors again!

Oct 31st, 2019

We chose Seabourn again, because we had tried other lines - Silversea and Regent. On those other lines the excursions were great, we were not impressed with the food or service. Seabourn had recently hired a new chef for the pool deck evening dining venue - called Earth and Sea. Phenomenal food. Better than any restaurant we have in Seattle or anywhere else. After trying the other dining choices, all of which were good, we ended up eating at Earth and Sea every night. By the end of the cruise word had spread, and it was hard to get a table there. We weren’t impressed with the Thomas Keller dining room…oddly pretentious and mediocre food. They do offer exceptional wine by the glass and wine pairings at Keller, which is a nice addition. We had a much better steak at Earth and Sea. The cruise director was very entertaining and engaging. The staff was warm and attentive. The ship is beautiful - with staterooms larger than the ones on their former smaller ships. Most, but not all, of the land excursions were very good. Seabourn didn't offer an opportunity to rate the land excursions that the other cruise lines do. I think that's a missed opportunity to get valuable feedback, particularly where passenger safety is concerned. In addition to a pool and hot tubs, there are many activities offered throughout the day. The spa management seemed a bit disorganized, but the services were good. We have already decided to a Seabourn cruise for 2020 and 2021. Highly recommend.

I have been on cruises with unhappy people who are complaining all the time. That was never the case. Seabourn cruisers are all happy and planning their next Seabourn cruise. We appreciate efficient srvice and the quality that Seabourn delivers.
