Lovely ship, very comfortable suite, good food, great service from staff (except for one tour guide in Mykonos), but not sure Seabourn is worth the thousands of dollars more it charges compared to other cruise lines. The high cost does attract a different type of passenger as we noticed we did not encounter as many drunks, profanity, or inappropriate cleavage. Instead of obnoxious and rowdy, you get slightly snooty. Only two complaints: the beds were miserably hard and prevented good sleep. And all excursions departed early each morning, so we had to set alarms and it felt like having to get up for school or work each day. We were very, very tired the entire trip.
