Cruise ship review

The 32,346-ton, 450-passenger cruise ship Seabourn Quest debuted in June 2011 and completed Seabourn Cruise Line's 750 million dollars investment in 3 new Odyssey-class "yachts," if we might call a 32,000-ton ship a yacht. Highlights of all three cruise liners include a great and expansive swimming pool surrounded by a wooden decking; a central "hub" named Seabourn Square which acts as a combination library, reception, Internet cafe and patisserie; and gorgeous and stylish decor, with extensive use of cream, white and neutrals in distinct textures, from leather to gauze, to create a comforting but chic boutique hotel feel.

Seabourn Quest service is ranked the best – it’s personalized and attentive. The ship features the amazing ratio crew-to-passenger: 1 to 1! Quest’s staff is driven by the sincere desire to please guests, with a smile coming from the heart. Tipping is not expected. Here are some of the special features of this unique cruise ship:

  • Complimentary welcome champagne; in-suite bar with your preferences;
  • Large walk-in closets; spacious baths (separate shower and tub);
  • Four dining venues; gourmet open-seating dining; 24-hour complimentary room service;
  • Six lounges and bars plus a casino; fine wines at lunch and dinner; open bars throughout ship;
