The luxury, all-inclusive Seabourn Quest is sister ship to Seabourn Sojourn, so the décor, design and menus are the same, along with the inclusion of a huge pool. Built in Genoa, she debuted in 2011 in Barcelona, boasting a sleek, contemporary yacht-style design and holding all the best boutique hotel features that make this intimate, 450-man ship special.
Seabourn have the highest service to passenger ratio at sea, so is famed for its intuitive service. Similar luxury lines include Silversea and Regent Seven Sea Cruises.
You are welcomed onto the ship in Seabourn Square, home to the library, reception, internet café and patisserie. Walk a little further, and you will get to experience the incredible cuisine on offer.
Entertainment is fairly low-key, but hugely enriching onboard Seabourn Quest – from expert lectures to cooking demonstrations, there is a diverse roster of refined activities. Passengers can spend plenty of time relaxing in the Jacuzzis, enjoying a free mini-massage on deck, or sipping a delicious cocktail in one of the many lounges on board such as the Observation Lounge.
Compete in giant chess or shuffleboard games at The Retreat, join in on the occasional outdoor yoga class, or go market shopping in port at the legendary Caviar in the Surf beach party where waiters emerge from the sea with platters of caviar and champagne for passengers.
Head over to the Grand Salon on deck 6 for Red Hot & Blue cabaret, which includes shows from professional actors and dancers. Later on, The Club becomes the epicentre of the ship, with an outside pool area for those mesmerising summer nights with the band as your soundtrack. Feeling lucky? The casino is great for enjoying a game of blackjack with new friends.
Seabourn Quest explores the cultural delights of the Baltic sea, including Denmark, Estonia and Russia. The Mediterranean is also a popular choice, as it visits classic destinations such as Rome, along with less-known gems such as Santa Margherita and Bonifacio.
Wanting to go further afield? She will journey to South America and the Caribbean, Canada and New England, along with breathtaking highlights of Antarctica.
