Review summary

Seabourn continues to be a fabulous cruise line. They go above and beyond expectations in every way. We didn’t even feel that we paid much more than on a regular cruise by the time you add tips, drinks and service. We used the Flight Ease program which worked out very well for us. We were also able to stay an extra week in Bali without having to make separate airline reservations. I highly recommend Seabourn to anyone who is considering a luxury cruise. You will never go back to a regular cruise line.

Ports of call

Benoa, Bali, Indonesia

Take a taxi out of the city area and visit the more rural areas to see the real Bali. It’s entirely different and well worth the time.

Komodo Island, Indonesia

4 out of 5
Very hot. Snorkeling on Pink Beach was great. It was a better option than seeing the dragons.

Darwin, Australia

Townsville, Australia

We took a ferry on our own to Magnetic Island. Tried to snorkel but conditions weren’t good. We rented a car to get around there. Not expensive and less hassle.

Airlie Beach, Queensland, Australia

5 out of 5
We snorkeled at the shipwrecks with the hand held scooters. Lots of fun.

Sydney, Australia

5 out of 5
Beautiful city. We had a private car and tour guide arranged by Seabourn. Top notch! Really saw a lot of Sydney. Food is expensive here. Lots of shopping is available.
