Review summary

The one adjective I use as a criterion is Memorable. All of our past cruises with Seabourn (4) were memorable; this one was not. Staffing on new Ovation was below normal and seemed less experienced than staff on the Odyssey-class ships. Service was not prompt. Worse than that, the excursions were below par compared to past experience with Seabourn.
