Our first Seabourn cruise.


Recommended Posts

Our last cruises have been on Regent and Oceania (their larger ships). We were disappointed in the last O/ceania ship, especially with their food, so we decided to try Seabourn. We had booked a Seabourn previously that was cancelled during covid. I wonder if anyone would be kind enough to share the differences in the 3 lines if you have indeed taken the other lines? What should we expect. We are taking next Springs Transatlantic — we love sea days! Any tips, suggestions, or advice would be appreciated.

@artlee We are very experienced cruisers and cannot compare but I will say our first experience was so great a couple of weeks ago that we booked the 2026 Seabourn World cruise on Soujourn. Using You Tube search has comparisons of some of top luxury lines. There our many video streams on Seabourn. 
We also just started cruising on Azamara and loved that  line and our going on their 2024 World Cruise. Seabourn was a step up but enjoy these small ships lines after years of cruising Hal. We are busy trying to put a dent in the Ski Fund aka Spending Kids Inheritance Fund. Hope you get some more answers but Seabourn Roll Calls are not very active. The don’t have Meet and Greets.

Have done many TA's on Seabourn and 1 on Regent.  Similar as far as day time lectures & things to do although Regent does have Trivia it is not a blood sport as it is on some Seabourn cruises. (We do not play, just based on what we heard from various friends who do play).  We were on the Splendor and think Regent - at least the larger ships - win as there are more choices for lunch open than on Seabourn.  Like the Regent coffee bar where you can have a seat and someone will take your order instead of standing on a line in Seabourn Square plus the serve yourself little breakfast options.  Seabourn clear winner when it comes to dinner as you only need reservations at TK - soon to be gone and the Ad Hoc dinners at Colonnade, never a problem to get whereas on Regent Prime 7, Chartreuse and Pacific Rim are all a game to play to get a reservation.  Compass Rose definitely a wider choice of options but service can be good or pretty bad and the room is not appealing.  Seabourn MDR smaller menu and service varies depending on who is the lead.  Much better, IMO, live music on Regent.
