A couple of years ago, a guest sailed on Seabourn Odyssey when she had a bit of a “wardrobe malfunction” with her dress – right before dinner. Read about her “Seabourn Moment” and how the ship’s team came through for her that evening:
It was my first Seabourn cruise and I was looking forward to the evening’s formal night. I had packed a special dress just for the occasion, and since there was only one formal night scheduled during the 7-day itinerary, I only brought one formal dress. To top it off, we had been invited to dine with the Captain that evening so it was shaping up to be a particularly special night. As I was getting dressed, I reached back to zip myself into my dress, when the zipper broke off in my hand! My heart dropped because dinner was in 45 minutes, we had already sailed away from port and I had no other formal dresses to wear as a “back-up”.
I picked up my in-room phone and dialed my suite stewardess. She told me she would take care of it and about 5 minutes later there was a knock on my door. Standing there was the ship’s onboard tailor, at the ready with needle and thread. He immediately sewed me into my dress and I was ready to go less than 10 minutes later. We ended up being early for dinner and had a very memorable evening at the captain’s table – and a great story to share with my fellow Seabourn guests!
