The Seabourn Odyssey is a sexy ship, that is renewed my interested in cruising. The cabins are spacious and luxuriously appointed. The in suite entertainment was all encompassing with movies and music galore to choose from. The bathrooms have bathtubs and double vanities.
All the public rooms, from the Observation Deck proved to be the perfect place for pre dinner cocktails. while the club on the 5th deck was perfect for after dinner drinks and dancing. The band was "rockin', and we danced every night. Don't miss the Rock The boat party where all the entertainers strut their stuff. There were so many places to enjoy the beautiful Dalmation Coast.
The cruise started in Venice. What a perfect way to begin with a sailaway through the Grand Canal. The passengers seem to come from world. Although, I expected more passengers from the US, I was delighted to see and hear accents from everywhere especially, Australia and Brazil. The crowd was energetic and young. The spa and the pool were always busy and inviting.
I was traveling with my son who was 21 years old . He was pleasantly surprised to find many peers to hang with. Many Americans travel as a family in July , while many Europeans seem to choose august for a family vacation.
Dinner in the dining room , named the Restaurant was always excellent, with wine pairings that always pleased the palette. It was hard to select which entree to choose and sometime we even had too.
Breakfast and lunch are served in The Colonade , with buffet and table service available. Sometimes you just want to eat outside. These tables fill up quickly so dine early.
We really enjoyed the Patio Grill, where a casual lunch was served till 3:30pm.
There was a coffee bar located on 7, next to Seabourn Square. Seabourn Square is where you go to speak to experts about any question you have concerning your cruise, such as excursions, or ideas of how to spend your day.
Of course I must mention room service. We ordered shrimp cocktails every single day, not to mention caviar on occasion. It was delivered in a timely fashion, no matter what time we ordered.
Although most of Seabourn's itineraries are 14 days, this cruise was 7 days and proved perfect for myself and my family.
