Cruise Line: Seabourn
Ship: Seabourn Pride
Sailing Date: n/a
Itinerary: Eastern Caribbean
The onboard casino is very small with a dozen slots, one roulette wheel & two blackjack tables. This is not a ship for big gamblers. The entertainment was acceptable, but not what one would find on a large cruise ship.
This is not a ship for people with small children since there is really no programs for them. On our cruise, the ages spanned the 30's to the 80's, and everyone was much more friendly than we had experienced on any other ship.
Since my wife & I had been to the Caribbean many times, we did not partake of any shore excursions. Seabourn did throw a wonderful beach barbeque on Virgin Gorda, BVI, complete with champagne & caviar. Never have seen anything like since we have been cruising.
Embarkation & disembarkation was the best ever. Everything went much smoother than we had ever experienced.
My wife & I liked the Pride experience so much that we booked another Pride cruise for 4/2002, 14 days roundtrip out of Venice.
We would recommend Seabourn to anyone who likes fine, European service, great food and exceptional accommodations.
