Seabourn ROCKS!

Jan 5th, 2020

Cruise line.com calculated a 4.8 out of 5 rating. I calculate it at 5. Why? Because it’s impossible to factor in the intangibles. This cruise was critical for me to be able to realize my dream of an “Around the World “ trip. It’s a trip that I’ve waited more than 65 years to do...more than 22,200 miles, every time zone on earth...and I have MS to boot.

Gorgeous cabins, inconsistent service

Sep 17th, 2019

First time in Seabourn and was very excited as had heard so many good things. Embarkation was a disaster. Loads of sick passengers resulted in contracting illness twice in 18 days and finishing in hospital in Singapore. Very impressive cabins with own wet bar and caviar on demand very luxurious. Surprisingly internet not included. Service was very hit and miss. Had meals forgotten to be delivered. Terrible cocktails. Could not get a beer list. CD was excellent. Activities were lots of fun, loved the art classes. Pool area too small and no service a lot of the time. Lack of space in general. Loved the Seabourn square. Would like to try one of their smaller ships

Wonderful Baltic Cruise

Jul 9th, 2019

This was a family cruise. It was also our first cruise. Everyone had a great time and we highly recommend Seabourn for the ship, staff and excursions. We will look to cruise with them again.

OK, not great

Nov 18th, 2018

The one adjective I use as a criterion is Memorable. All of our past cruises with Seabourn (4) were memorable; this one was not. Staffing on new Ovation was below normal and seemed less experienced than staff on the Odyssey-class ships. Service was not prompt. Worse than that, the excursions were below par compared to past experience with Seabourn.

Pleasant and Interesting Cultural Experience

Oct 11th, 2018

Liverpool, Dublin, Belfast and Edinburgh were all cities where Hop On Hop Off buses were available to explore the city, and this proved an excellent way to see as much of each one as was practical, with plenty of opportunities to take good photos. The smaller towns were fun to explore on foot, and very interesting too. Dundee, in Scotland, had opened its brand-new and already famous Museum of Design 11 days before our visit, and it was a thrill to visit it. We've now got a much better feel for the historical complexities which gave rise to the union of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, and found the people there to be very friendly.

Gorgeous ship and great itinerary for a fairly quick spin in the Baltic/Gulf of Finland

Aug 7th, 2018

Was a wonderful trip - the ship and itinerary did not disappoint. This was my first Seabourn cruise and I am sold! Ovation just put to sea in the spring and some of the crew are still finding their feet perhaps, but nothing major wrong at all. I am ready for my next sail on Ovation.
