When Seabourn Quest debuts in the summer of 2011, the ship will feature Seabourn Square, an innovative concierge lounge with a “club room” ambiance, offering a variety of attractions and amenities making guests feel at home during their cruises.
It is one of the most distinctive features of the ship and considered to be “hub” of the ship. Need a café latte? Check. Want to check your email from loved ones? Check. Have a question about a shore excursion or a charge on your shipboard account? Check. Want to read a book or the latest headlines? Check. Or how about just sitting back and taking in some fresh air overlooking the wake of the ship? Check, check.
Open from 6:15 a.m. until 6 p.m., the lounge is furnished with comfortable sofas, easy chairs and cocktail tables, and the walls are lined with fiction, nonfiction and reference books. Eight computer workstations are available for guests to check their emails or surf the Internet during their cruise. One of the most popular spots in Seabourn Square is the European konditorei-style coffee bar, with a tall, gleaming espresso machine serving specialty coffees, drinks, sandwiches, pastries and gelati.
In the center of the room is an enclave housing a team of Guest Services Specialists. They sit discreetly at individual desks, ready to assist guests 24 hours a day with any inquiries they may have, from onboard account questions and money exchange to reserving shore excursions and giving advice about ports of call. The Destination Services staff is also present in Seabourn Square, and there is a separate desk where the onboard Cruise Sales Specialist can discuss guests’ future bookings in privacy.
Guests who are planning to sail on Seabourn Quest will no doubt enjoy Seabourn Square’ relaxed atmosphere. It was designed to encourage sociability and we’ve heard much positive feedback about the Square from guests who sailed on Seabourn Odyssey and Seabourn Sojourn. We want to hear from you: what do you like most about Seabourn Square?
