Seabourn Odyssey Review
Cruise Line: Seabourn
Review Date: 23 February 2015
Where: Sydney Harbour
This is, without doubt, luxury on the sea. It has every feature you would want. The public areas are large and spacious. It has a large spacious entertainment area that cleverly features a glass wall that allows people to sit in a relatively intimate area yet still view entertainment performances on the stage.
Seabourn Odyssey accommodates just 450 guests in 225 luxury suites. She is the smallest new ship being built by any major cruise line, and her guest capacity is the highest space-per-guest ratio in the industry.
Seabourn Odyssey’s 225 ocean-view suites are divided into 13 categories, with interior measurements from 295 to over 1,200 square feet. Ninety percent have private verandas, which add from 65 to over 350 square feet of additional private living space. Highlights in accommodations are the exceptional Wintergarden Suites, which have a private glassed-in Solarium with a soaking tub and a lounging bed. This suite also features a veranda that is bowed out, giving wonderful views long the side of the ship. The Signature Suites, located all the way forward on Deck 7, have over 900 square feet of inside space and a spectacular wrap-around veranda of 353 square feet. In addition to more larger suites, Seabourn Odyssey’s additional size is utilized to create more open deck space, and a variety of public rooms and dining venues.
A tip if you select an Owner’s Suite – look for Suites 601 or 721 – to avoid anchor noise.
SUITS: Adults who appreciate the finer things in life.
