Seabourn Moments

posted by: Helen Chalu from Norwich Norfolk United Kingdom

Last year my husband, two teenage children and I were lucky enough to spend 12 days aboard the beautiful Seabourn Quest. Every day was special with each and every member of staff going out of their way to make our holiday extraordinary. However, the highlight of the holiday was being able to invite the on board band to have dinner with us. The restaurant manager showed no hesitation in organising a table for 11 at short notice, and it was such a privilege to be able to invite the band to dine with us, just like we were at home. We were wined and dined in true Seabourn style, enjoying a delicious meal with the best band at sea, accompanied by lively conversation and laughter. ... read more

Eveyone selects a cruise for a specific reason.  Our reason was to be on a ship for my wife's 70th birthday.  And so we selected the Seabourn Odyssey's Mumbai to Singapore itinerary.  Of note, one of the ports of call was Yangon, Myanmar.  Originally, we were scheduled to be in port for only two days, but a schedule change added an additional day.  I recognized an opporltunity and seized it.  We had already signed up for the tour of Bagan, but with the added day, it was now possible to schedule an amazing hot air balloon experience, majectically floating over the capital of ancient Pagan at sunrise.  Hoping that the universe would give us a clear day, no last minute schedule changes and good health, we arrived at our hotel in Bagan the evening prior to the hot air balloon ride.  All wen ... read more

On October 31, 2008 the Legend and the QE2 were docked in Cagliari, Sardinia. It was the last time the Legend and the QE2 would cross paths before the Queen's retirement a couple of weeks later. We were in suite 206 on the Legend and I had just emerged from the shower and was preparing to dress for a pre-dinner Halloween reception with new friends who occupied one of the Owners suites. Our balcony doors were open when I heard a very short "toot" from the Legend's horn. A few seconds later there was a very short lower pitched "toot from the QE2. ... read more

Soon, on 17 Oct 14, we will be boarding the Seabourn Legend for the last time. The three little sisters will be missed. Before departing on our farewell voyage the Legend made an appearance just outside my office window in the City of London. How very considerate. Bonne Voyage. ... read more

It goes without saying that Seabourn is our "home away from home".  We decided many years ago that rather than invest in a summer home or a boat, we would spend our vacation and holiday time on the ships of Seabourn.  And, on this cruise we hit our 31st voyage with Seabourn.  The staff got together and assembled 31 balloons, each inscribed with a sailing date, ship and destination that were part of our Seabourn sailing history.  The balloons were lined up and arranged along the ceiling of our suite, and you can imagine our reaction when we entered our suite.  All six Seabourn sisters were represented there, as well as almost every destination that Seabourn visits, going back to our first cruise on Seabourn Legend in 2001.  ... read more
