It’s been one year since Seabourn Quest joined the Seabourn family, and to mark this special occasion, the staff put on a big birthday celebration when the ship was in Santorini on May 30. Hotel Manager Guenter Steinbrunner and Cruise Director Handré Potgieter sent along the following report and photos about that evening’s festivities:
One could not imagine an evening more perfect on board Seabourn Quest. The spectacular backdrop of Santorini plus a late departure and picture perfect weather formed the ideal setting to celebrate the ship’s first birthday.
As a memento of the ship’s first birthday, guests received a signed certificate by Captain Magnus Bengtsson. Hotel Manager Guenter Steinbrunner and the entire F&B team presented a culinary symphony with our signature pre-dinner “Seabourn Epicurean” event, along with live music and white-glove service. Captain Magnus paid tribute to the officers, staff and crew and toasted to this special evening. He complimented the ship for her true elegance in the way she sailed around the globe during her first year.
After dinner, all guests were invited to indulge in an assortment of desserts under the stars followed by a very special birthday edition of our popular ‘Rock the Boat’ dance party featuring the entire entertainment team. It was a spectacular event guests and crew will cherish and smile about in years to come.
Santorini’s iconic blue-domed churches always make for a striking photo. Combine it with a beautiful Seabourn yacht and you’ll have a picture perfect shot. Last week, Seabourn’s Manager of Yield Management John Cook was exploring the island and captured this great shot of Seabourn Odyssey anchored in the caldera, with one of the magnificent churches in the foreground. Beautiful, isn’t she?
