We love Seabourn, especially the Pride, Spirit, and Legend, for their intimate exclusiveness. We travel Seabourn for their attention to fine detail, their impeccable taste, friendliness, and lovely sense of humour.

The suite was always tidy, clean and two small deficiencies, fixed while we had lunch. All the crew were immaculately dressed, always pleasant, and you can talk to all levels of the management structure. The captain was regularly around chatting, most approachable and certainly very interested in the welfare of his crew.

We do not like too many days at sea, as island hopping, beach barbeques, small discreet anchorages, and out of the ordinary places of interest are a speciality of Seabourn. If you only do one cruise in your life, make it a Seabourn experience. There is no cost whilst on board except certain expensive wines, which the average traveller, would not require, but it is there for you if you so desire.

Beautifully presented, always fresh and tasted delicious. A gourmet selection at all times. Room service food always delicious.

The fresh fruit and berries delicious.

Always clean, tidy and lots of lovely toiletries

Very adequate for the age group. Always hilarious, great sense of humour and enjoyed by all.

Must do........St Kitts sugar train........Boulders on Virgin Gorda......helicopter to Montserrat......Caviar in Surf.

Stay away from Trunk Bay if other large cruise ships are in port, as beach is solid bodies. Do be a bit adventurous and take local busses round various island for $1 or $2... excellent value and always courteous.

We love the Caribbean, as it is usually calm, beautiful clear sea water, exquisite beaches, and love to explore the history of the islands , the pirates, gold/silver trade , the various island trading patterns.

There are forts and old buildings of all countries which we enjoy.

We are fortunate enough to be able to travel Business class from Australasia, as bucket and spade is too confining.
