Customer reviews for Seabourn Encore

This was our third cruise on board the Encore, and we loved it. Food and drinks were amazing, with no expense spared, especially at the Thomas Keller grill. Professional, yet friendly staff and a very comfortable ship. Our only slight reservations are the availability and speed of wifi connection and the quality of excursions offered, (we booked our own, independently). Rated as a 6

WE have sailed on all Seabourn ships,from the smallest,the medium,Odyssey,Quest and Sojourn and now the "Flagship that would blow you away" the Encore. Yes the ship is beautiful,the suites are fine as are the public spaces.Only THE GRAND SALON deck 6 is too small,therefore there are TWO shows now.The result is that the dining room is too small for the people who want to see the 8.45 show,it is a cafetaria,with sweating waiters,wine throwing sommeliers,very average food,unhappy customers. As a whole after many happy sailings no more Seabourn for us.When complaining to Seabourn headquarters,the answer was: We are sorry,but your complaint is not typical and have a nice continuation! Well there goes "The best small ship line!! Why not rename Seabourn in Carnaval Boutique?

After reading the one and only shocking review I had to give my opinion. We went on the second leg of the inaugural cruise over Xmas and New year. It was its usual high standard in all areas. We have cruised with this line for about 8 times and have been more than happy. Have booked again in December on one of their other ships which we have cruised before. Will leave a comment after that one.

Are you rebooking a cancelled cruise due to Covid-19?
