Launched in 2011, Seabourn Quest is a relatively small ship, but has one of the highest passenger/space ratios at sea. It has four restaurants providing international cuisine, plus six lounges and bars. The atmosphere on board is one of casual luxury and while the dress codes are not overly strict, jeans are not allowed in the main restaurants. The 32,000 tonne ship can accommodate 450 passengers and 330 crew members
All the staterooms on Seabourn Quest are considered suites. There are 225 suites and 197 (90%) have balconies. Suites range in size from 295 to 1,682 square feet. All have a spacious living area, writing desk, personal fridge and mini-bar filled with soft drinks, spirits and other refreshments, DVD player, flat-screen satellite television, entertainment centre, Wi-Fi and a full bathroom with separate bath and shower and Molton Brown toiletries.
The main dining, The Restaurant has open seating for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Restaurant 2 serves regional cuisine and tasting menus. For more casual dining, The Colonnade offers indoor and outdoor seating and, for those who prefer pizzas and salad, there is the poolside Patio Grill. Guests can also enjoy 24-hour in-suite service for their meals.
The large Spa at Seabourn spans two decks with six treatment rooms, a thermal area featuring a large hydro-pool, dry float, sauna and steam rooms, a full-service salon, well-equipped gym and a motion studio with a Kinesis Wall and Thai massage area. The gym has tai chi, Pilates and yoga classes. For warm-weather cruising, there is a marina for sailing, water-skiing, kayaking, banana boat rides and pedal boating, and a steel-mesh enclosure for safe swimming in the sea. The Grand Salon hosts live music, dancing and shows and there is also a nightclub venue.
There are no programs or facilities available for children. However, there is no cruise line policy that prohibits children below 18 years old under the supervision of their parents/guardians.
– Cruise Passenger
This was our first time on Seabourn and we were extremely pleased. Both embarkation and disembarkation were quick and went smoothly. The ship is on the smaller side compared to the average cruise ship, but it was immaculate, and very well maintained. Our cabin was large enough that my husband and I had separate areas to read or relax. The bathroom had a shower and a tub with Molton Brown toiletries. -lovetoliveonvacation
