Decadent Dessert

FF – (FUN-fact) – We covered 3941 nautical miles from Buenos Aires to Valparaíso.

  • Cruise Recap: This is our second Seabourn cruise and we like that everything is included (except the internet which is slow and expensive.) The food on the Sojourn was a bit inconsistent compared to the Quest this summer. The coffee was not very good and the espresso beans not that much better. What would it take to get really good beans? The complimentary wine was very average and we think Regent 7 Seas offers a better selection and their espresso is better too.  In fairness we think Seabourn does a better of job of dinner selections. We like the cabin size at almost 300 sq. ft even for the least expensive ones. The service was excellent!
