The best part of the cruise was how accommodating Seabourn was for my many dietary needs. I was disappointed that we arrived late into Edinburgh and therefore had a very limited amount of time in port especially since we were docked in Leith and had to take a shuttle bus to Edinburgh. The shuttle bus did not start immediately and ran every 30 minutes. In other ports we also had to use shuttle buses because the docking place was not near the city. Unlike tenders that run more frequently, the use of shuttles decreased the time we had in the city. The excursions from most of the ports were good although the excursion from Antwerp to Ghent didn't account for the amount of time it would take in traffic to get back to the ship and we arrived after the dining room had closed for lunch. The in excursion in Oslo didn't take into account the time at which the shop and snack bar at the Lillehammer ski jump opened and we had to wait. It was a waste of time and we weren't supposed to stop there. The guide on this excursion wasted time trying to decide whether to proceed with the stop in the sculpture park because it was raining. She ultimately decided to proceed and it was fine but the time that was wasted in both of the first two stops resulted in less time at the Viking Museum than ideal.
Our cabin was very nice, just as we requested. I like the fact that you are not nickel and dimed.
