A great Alaskan expirience

Sep 7th, 2018

We have just finished a 19 day Seabourn adventure to Alaska and as we anticipated it was what we have come to expect from Seabourn. For both of us it was our second visit to this wonderful state. The first 5 days were a part of the Seabourn expedition program. We were met at the Anchorage airport and then whisked off to the Thomas Cook hotel where we met David the tour guide, coordinator, and all around handy guy. That evening we had a group dinner with 26 cohorts, soon to become friends. The next morning it was off to Denali via an 8 hour train ride through some gorgeous country. Wednesday was a free day for us to rest and take in the lodge. Excursions were available although Dee and I just took the day off. Thursday’s we were off into the park, not just a panoramic view but deep into the park. Where most tours go in about 15 miles our excursion went in about 63 miles. During that wonderful drive we ran into ptarmigans, caribou, grizzly, doll sheep, magpie, and the preverbal snow hare. Every minute of the 8 hours trip was fun and exceptionally interesting. Our guide had been leading these expeditions for 30 years and knew the park like the back of her hand. Our last day was a busy one as well. The alarm jolted us awake at 6:00 AM, we put our bags out, got breakfast then, on the bus for a three hours drive to Talketna. There our intrepid group boarded three planes to fly to Anchorage. The reason for the plane ride was to give us the opportunity to see the Alaskan back country and get a great view of a number of glaciers. We were taken aback by the beauty of the mountains and glaciers from a birds eye view. After an hour and a half of flying we landed in Anchorage and it was off to lunch, then on to the ship. In short the expedition was more than we expected in terms of quality, and the wonderful companion ship of our travel mates. It was truly a Seabourn experience. There is a lot to be said about knowing a group of people before you get on the ship. The companionship of the expedition group continued on into the cruise. If you are visiting Alaska via Seabourn and they offer this pre cruise adventure, take it. We have been on the Sojourn before, and like its sister ship the Quest it was a great cruise experience. Once on board we saw cruise members we had sailed with before and believe it or not they remembered us. Like previous trips the crew was very attentive and after a short period of time knew our names and our preferences. One of the surprises on this trip was the fact that our suite was upgraded from a veranda suite to a penthouse suite. Our joke was that it was so large that Dee and I had to carry gps devices to find each other. In truth the suite was fantastic. It had a separate bedroom, living area, a dining area, a two room bathroom, and a huge veranda. The itinerary was excellent as we were able to go places larger ships could only dream of. Add to that the off ship excursions via kayak and/or zodiac really made these excursions up close and personal. The picture opportunities were plentiful including glaciers, whales using bubble netting to get their lunch and a female grizzly with her two cubs just to name a few of the opportunities. The food, as in the past, was excellent. We are Colonnade people as we like the more casual dining experience. Our one complaint is that consuming this food seems to shrink our clothes. . As is our way we continued our “May We Join You” philosophy. We share a table every night with different people. On this trip we met lawyers, entrepreneurs, a gentleman and his wife who lived in South Africa, New Zealanders, Australians, and Germans. The most impressive couple however was the couple who exuded tremendous courage and strength in the face of health issue. As we have written before and will again, Seabourn knows how to make a cruise special. We love cruising with Seabourn so much that in 2019 we will be returning to the Quest to venture to Antarctica and the Amazon.

The best hotel in Alaska

Aug 19th, 2018

Our first impression of Alaska was how lucky we are to have this magnificent, unspoiled place in America. Our second impression was how crucial it is for us all to protect it. You can't believe the miles and miles of untouched forest and wilderness. The amazing wildlife, that seems to be flourishing. The remarkable people, who chose to be there and wouldn't be anywhere else. And to do it all from this amazing floating hotel called the Sojourn made it incredible.

Aug 5th, 2018

Very nice ship. Well maintained. Food was good, not great. Food in Thomas Keller The Grill was better. All should know that the meats are all frozen due to regulations. Only fresh for the day fish was fresh. The deserts were excellent. There is no 24 coffee or food on this ship, except room service. Very unusual. This ship’s stabilizers are a must on a ship of this size and work very well to minimize rocking. Very old average age to crowd. I would guess 75. Some well into their 90’s. Good handicap accessibility.

Seabourn is great, but not quite as great as in the past

Dec 5th, 2017

We love Seabourn, this is our 4th trip with them. Were a bit disappointed as it seems that their standards have slipped a bit, both in food quality and service. Some of the newer staff seemed to lack training and supervision, but ALL were very nice and pleasant. We hope that they will recover as we will try them again. A little skeptical of their new ships that appear to just stack and extra deck of passengers on to the same overall public areas.

Best ever cruise!

Seabourn goes the extra mile to make sure everything is right. We had one of our outbound flights cancelled at the last minute and their emergency folks got us rerouted so we made it to the ship OK. There was a problem with our traveling companions' return flights (apparently bungled by Seabourn), but Alaska Air made it work so we all got back on the same flights.

Needs Improvement

Jun 14th, 2017

<p>It&#39;s Seabourn&#39;s first time back to Alaska in 15 years, and it showed.  A major selling point for this itinerary is Seabourn Ventures but our excursion was canceled- big disappointment.  Many of the excursions were disorganized and late; that is inexcusable.  The menu, always superb, was also disappointing. How can you plan an Alaskan-themed cruise without Alaskan king crab or Dungeness crab on the menu. We had king crab on a Mediterranean cruise with Seabourn!  I gave this feedback midway thru the cruise to no avail.  The chef could have easily obtained some when we docked in Juneau, but he didn&#39;t.  The menu at Restaurant 2 was so plain that we didn&#39;t even bother to book it, and it&#39;s normally one of the highlights of the trip..</p> <p> </p> <p>Service aboard Seabourn, however, was terrific and met its usual high standards.  Everything functioned as it should. The suites are large and comfortable.</p> <p> </p> <p>The ports/itinerary was well-planned, and many of the excursions were amazing.  Unlike many Mediterranean cruises which are culturally based, this one focuses on wildlife and does not disappoint.  However, whatever you may see or not see is weather-dependent.</p>

<p>Stayed in cabin 912. Magnificent cabin. Great bathroom, great closet. Housekeeping was amazing. My only constructive comment about cabin is the deck chairs should recline more. </p> <p> </p> <p>What was truly outstanding on this ship was the service. It was extraordinary in both delivery and attitude. <img alt="Happy" src="https://cruiseline.com/images/emoticon-1.png" /></p>

Could be better.

May 30th, 2016

<p>Food, beverages, service and staff is great, entertainment was fine. Although there are more amazing gems in Arabia, itenarary lacks suitable ports. Excursions are good, except for Doha Qatar, there is nothing to see, no need to even stop there. Seabourn made sure, most of guest spent serious money to acquire Visa even before boarding the ship. In our case, it was close to $ 600. Muscat and Salalah are just so so. Monte Carlo was messed up by Formula one races. As Rome was not built in a day, It is even foolish to try to have reasonable attempt to see anything in four and half hours. They should have two stops in Italy.  And two day excursion  with overnight stay as it is available in Israel.  </p> <p>I will recommend Seabourn, even though quality of services were less than advertised in their brochure. </p>

Magical holidays

Jan 10th, 2016

<p>We enjoy cruising with Seabourn primarily because of the staff &amp; the fascinating people we meet on board. &nbsp;This cruise was no exception. &nbsp;It was extra special seeing how SE Asia embraces the joy &amp; wonder of Christmas. &nbsp;The decorations were astounding. &nbsp;At no time in our tours were we overwhelmed with poverty &amp; dirty conditions. &nbsp;We love Hong Kong &amp; Viet Nam was a pleasant surprise. &nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>We enjoyed the day trip arranged to an island complete with picnic &amp; caviar in the surf. &nbsp;The crew really knocked themselves out to make the day extra special.</p>
