Seabourn Encore

December 2016 - Seabourn Encore to Asia & Indian Ocean

Initial cruise of Encore off to a good startD

We weren't sure what to expect with this new ship but for the most part it was great.  Of course there were a few glitches but nothing to ruin a good trip.  As always it is the staff that make all the difference.  We were spoiled as usual & felt we made new friends with the crew that we hope to see on our next voyage.  

 

Of all the places we visited we enjoyed Muscat the best.  That was a huge surprise.

Seabourn Sojourn

December 2015 - Seabourn Sojourn to Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

Magical holidays

We enjoy cruising with Seabourn primarily because of the staff & the fascinating people we meet on board.  This cruise was no exception.  It was extra special seeing how SE Asia embraces the joy & wonder of Christmas.  The decorations were astounding.  At no time in our tours were we overwhelmed with poverty & dirty conditions.  We love Hong Kong & Viet Nam was a pleasant surprise.  

 

We enjoyed the day trip arranged to an island complete with picnic & caviar in the surf.  The crew really knocked themselves out to make the day extra special.

joytosa's Tips

Hong Kong - I loved Hong Kong. I was surprised how easy it was to get around. We took the train from the airport & to get to different sites. Everyone was very helpful if we weren't sure what we were doing. The food was outstanding of course. We took the ferry to Kowloon & found that was easy too. We really loved Heritage 1881. We can't wait to go back to HK
Ha Long Bay City (Hanoi), Vietnam - The cruise around the bay was like being in a Chinese scroll painting. Everywhere you looked nature gave you a beautiful sight.
Singapore - I was surprised that it wasn't as impressive to me as Hong Kong. And it wasn't as "sterile" as I had been warned
Ko Kut (Ko Kood), Thailand - What a great treat!! Although it was hot & we don't swim or sunbathe, we really enjoyed this treat.
Laem Chabang (Bangkok), Thailand - The traffic was unbelievable so it was hard to get around. We also found the people were not as gracious as they had been when we were there 7-8 years ago
Seabourn Sojourn Seabourn Sojourn - The breadsticks & the french fries are addictive & a killer to anyone's diet. Seaboard really promotes interaction with other passengers, staff & officers. We always enjoy that. We took advantage of each hosted dinner table & met fantastic entertainers, staff & guests.
