  • don’t have to get off ship until 9:30


  • have to be out of our room by 8 am

TIRA  (Things I Remember After) – The Seabourn chef bought fresh shellfish in the morning markets and cooked it tableside for lunch. We had some of the best mussels and linguine with clam sauce.

Seabourn Cruise Recap –  Travel is very personal! This is our second 6 star cruise and we were impressed with Seabourn. (we plan on cruising with all four of the 6 star cruise lines)

What we LIKED

The food and service was excellent! We booked a room with a big picture window and without a balcony. Nice and big at 295 sq ft. We don’t spend that much time in our room and are perfectly happy going up to the pool deck and sitting outside while having lunch and dinner.  In our opinion – You can’t wear an upgrade! We were surprised by how many young people, families and children were on board. This is because of the time of year, length of cruise, and ports of call. We booked a second cruise with Seabourn next February in South America.


  • paying for internet!
  • and it was extremely slow!
  • we expected the wine by the glass to be better
