We did the 7-day Caribbean portion from St. Maarten and remained on board for the transatlantic, disembarking in Lisbon--18 days in total. This was our third Seabourn cruise, and Seabourn was once again spot-on with everything.
Embarkation/disembarkation is easy, although St. Maarten hadn't fully recovered from the hurricane. In Lisbon, we just walked off the ship at the time we wanted, and our car and driver was waiting.
The famous Caviar in the Surf took place at St. Kitts the first day of the cruise, and once again Seabourn knocked it out of the park. It's an extraordinary event.
The officers and crew knock themselves out for you. Food and beverage is terrific. For those interested, the crossing was one of the smoothest the Officers had ever experienced--more like a lake than anything else. On the crossing, there were two shows each evening--one for the early birds at around 6:30 and another later on around 9:45.
it's hard to imagine a better cruise.
This is our favorite cabin on the ship. It's a one bedroom suite, mid-ships. The bedroom is enclosed, and separate from the living room. This works perfectly for us, since one of us is generally up way before the other. You can have room service come in with morning coffee without waking the other person. The balcony is double the size, and it has two giant lounge chairs on it in addition to a table and chairs. Morning coffee from room service comes within a couple of minutes, at most. We also had room service for dinner twice, and both times they set up your dining table with linen, etc. The cabin has tons of space, and you can really spread out and settle in.
