Featured Ship: Seabourn Quest

Seabourn Quest is the newest ship in their fleet, having made its initial voyages in 2011.  Like the other five Seabourn ships, a Quest cruise is a luxury experience – suites, more suites and nothing but suites.  The room sizes range from 295 to 1,682 square feet so some suites are, well, sweeter than others.  But all 225 have ocean views and most have verandas.

seabourn-quest-wintergarden-suiteThe top of the line accommodations are the five “Owner’s Suites” (up to 1,062 square feet) and four two-bedroom “Grand Suites” (up to 1,682 square feet).  Although smaller (around 530 square feet), the 22 “Penthouse Suites” live up to their name and are located on Quest’s upper decks.  Penthouse Spa Suites are located near “The Spa at Seabourn” – which claims to be the largest spa facility on any cruise ships.

Dining on Quest includes the indoor-outdoor cafe “The Colonnade”, the Patio Grill and two primary dining rooms known as The Restaurant and Restaurant 2.  Bars and lounges include the Observation Bar, Sky Bar, Patio Bar and The Club.  It wouldn’t be a cruise ship with an entertainment venue, called the “Grand Salon” on Quest, featuring lectures, cooking demonstrations and movies during the day plus dancing and live performances at night.

seabourn-quest-swimming-poolSeabourn guests can stay active in the top deck swimming pool, in the well-equipped fitness studio or the shuffleboard and putting green of “The Retreat”.  When the water is warm, the captain has option of opening the “Marina”, an opportunity for guests to do some sailing, canoeing and swimming off the aft end of the ship.

TheCruiseNexus.com has a complete schedule of upcoming Seabourn Quest cruises, as well as the rest of the Seabourn fleet.   Quest currently spends the northern hemisphere summer cruising the Mediterranean.  The rest of the year is spent in the southern hemisphere (where, conveniently, it’s summer again) cruising around South America and making some exceedingly memorable 21-day cruises to Antarctica.
