Sorry Seabourn: You Blew It

Review for Seabourn Sojourn to World Cruise

Age 60s

We have just finished our "Capetown to Singapore" part of the Sojourn World Cruise. BACKGROUND My wife and I used to be died-in-the-wool Seabourn fans and have Diamond (250+ days) status. We loved the experience. That all fell apart on a cruise in 2016 when they were introducing Thomas Keller (but before they had the separate TK Grill). The quality and variety of food dropped so bad that we ...

Review for Silver Spirit to Africa

This was first part of back to back. Capetown to Mumbai. Seemed like good ports. On second leg no outside entertainment. All we had was stable of singers on board. Did have local dancers at one port. A cheap way to stick it to passengers. Main and veranda dining rooms very limited selection. The main dining room had a hamburger every night that had texture of baby food. Salad selection just about ...

Shabby ship.

The ship was shabby- worn out dirty carpets, grubby and dirty upholstery in the public rooms. The staff were obviously demoralised and indifferent to the passengers. The worst feature was Silver Seas arrogance in taking us to horrible ports - 2 days in Richards Bay - a coal export port in South Africa. Fine if you enjoy coal dust with your meals on deck. Second class entertainers and a ...

We are aboard the Nautica right now on the Cape Town to Cape Town trip. I wanted to let you all know a few things so you may not be as crushed as I am feeling right now. First, the pre-cruise tour has been the absolute highlight of this trip. Otherwise, I am feeling cheated by a line that we have loved in the past. Cheated out of the holidays as there isn't a single decoration on the ship (a first ...

A Case of the Emperor's New Clothes

Very poor value for money. If its expensive it must be good - Yes? Oh no this a case of the emperor's new clothes, this ship has nothing to show. Where is the luxury? Rear half of the had a very strong smell of diesel fumes throughout the cruise - we kept away from this as much as we could to avoid these potentially carcinogenic gases. Cabin was very cold and changing thermostat ...

We were going to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary and my wife's birthday. Also a bucket list item to africa. We were told and read that regent was the "gold standard" for cruise lines. The cost was over the top but decided to go based on above recommendations. First,confusion by shore staff on both transfers from embarkation hotel to ship and back to hotel at conclusion of sailing. ...

Don't Bother To Spend The Money On Regent

Review for Seven Seas Voyager to Trans-Ocean

Age 50s

The reason for choosing the Regent Safaris and Jewels cruise was its post-cruise trip to Cambodia. There are many other cruise lines that offer a similar trip to Africa and Asia, but the deciding factor was the post-cruise trip to Cambodia. We followed all the “travel checklist” instructions in Regent's “Cruise Vacation Document” and “Angkor Wat Document” sent to us by Regent before the ...

We booked this cruise as part of a package including a pre-cruise stay in Cape Town , which we very much enjoyed, followed by a 4 night safari at Shamwari, which was amazing, and would recommend to anyone visiting this area. We have cruised extensively, (25 +) mainly with 5 star lines such as Celebrity, Holland Amaerica and Royal Carribbean, and have also "treated" ourselves a few times by ...

We had food not prepared correctly and some almost raw in Polo In Toscanna they even forgot our bread and we canceled our last reservations in those two venues. Service was slow in the Terrace sometimes as long as 20 min. Signature sandwiches (ex: Pannini) were not prepared correctly in Waves. We only had quality meals in the Grand Dining Room. With welding on deck 10 and 11 for almost two ...

Went with Oceania from Capetown to Singapore . Don't do it sounds exotic but African ports other than Capetown not worth doing . Maldives and Seychelles were good but not enough to warrant this expense and time . As far as Oceania goes the food was very good and the general staff were excellent , but that's as far as it went . The cruise director was terrible as was the lack of entertainment and ...
