Seabourn Quest is the third iteration of the vessel design that has been called “a game-changer for the luxury segment.” Built at the T. Mariotti shipyard in Genoa, she was named in Barcelona on June 20, 2011. True to her Seabourn bloodlines, wherever she sails around the world, Seabourn Quest carries with her a bevy of award-winning dining venues that are comparable to the finest restaurants to be found anywhere. Under the guidance of celebrity chef Charlie Palmer, Seabourn Quest offers a variety of dining options to suit every taste and every mood, with never an extra charge. The Restaurant is the main dining venue on board, serving multi-course breakfasts, luncheons and dinners in an open-seating style amid a refined setting of gleaming white linens, polished alabaster walls, flowing sheer draperies and glittering crystal chandeliers. Menus reflect Chef Palmer’s insistence on fresh, high-quality ingredients, masterful preparation and appealing presentations. In a signature Seabourn salute to personalization, guests are invited to order from the Restaurant menu during extended service hours, and have their meal served in the privacy of their suites or on their verandas. Located all the way aft on Deck 8, the Colonnade is a more casual, very popular indoor/outdoor option serving lavish station-style buffet breakfasts and lunches. Dinners in the Colonnade are regionally-themed menus prepared in the open kitchen and served at table. Restaurant 2 is an intimate setting where guests can enjoy innovative small-plates tasting menus nightly by reservation. The Patio Grill is a casual alternative offering poolside dining for luncheons and dinners, as well as freshly baked pizzas from its on-site oven all afternoon. Festive beach barbecues are frequent highlights on warm-water cruises, with lavish steak-and-seafood grills and Seabourn’s Signature Caviar in the Surf event. A comprehensive selection of delicious items from appetizers to scrumptious desserts is available for in-suite service 24 hours a day.

Seabourn pioneered small-ship, ultra-luxury cruising and continues to represent the pinnacle of that unique style of travel. Their fleet of small, intimate ships carrying between 450-600 guests each sail to the world’s most desirable destinations. On board, you can expect the highest level of service where staff numbers almost match the number of guests. These staff members have all been trained to the highest standard of customer service delivery, making Seabourn one of the most luxurious cruise line companies operating around the world.
Cruising on board a Seabourn cruise liner is perhaps like no other. The experience of luxury travel is taken to a whole new level and their ethos for thoughtful, personalised and heartfelt hospitality sets them apart from other cruise liners.
Seabourn has a relatively small fleet of just four small luxury cruise liners: The Seabourn Encore, the Seabourn Quest, the Seabourn Odyssey and the Seabourn Sojourn. The Odyssey is the oldest of the liners launched in 2009 and the fleet is modern and well equipped. The Encore is the latest addition to the fleet and along with the Ovation which will launch in 2017, will ensure that Seabourn has the youngest and most modern, ultra-luxury fleet in the industry.
With their unmatched sense of style, elegance and grace, Seabourn ships beckon you to travel beyond the bounds of the imagination. Aboard Seabourn, every desire is met promptly and with a welcoming smile. Whether it's a warm blanket and a cup of gourmet hot chocolate as you drift along the Norwegian Fjords or a relaxing neck massage poolside, you'll feel that you're a member of a very exclusive club.

Seabourn Cruises pride themselves on providing what they call ‘The Seabourn Difference’. Whether it’s the itineraries they offer or the food they serve, the Seabourn Difference means going the extra mile to delivering an outstanding level of customer service. Their luxurious suites offer you a home away from home and feature luxurious appointments. Featuring fine Egyptian cotton sheets, the bed just invites you to take an afternoon nap or kick back and watch the world go by from the comfort of your bed.
The food on board rivals many of the world’s leading restaurants with options to suit all tastes. During the day, you can take advantage of on board activities including an inspiring enrichment programme, the spa, a fully equipped fitness centre or the complimentary massages up on deck. There is also a marina day which features complimentary watersports on select sailings.
In the evenings thigs are just as lively with sophisticated cabaret nights, a casino or dancing the night away in the onboard nightclub. Add into the mix things like movies under the stars or dancing under the stars and you can start to see why Seabourn is such a popular choice amongst cruisers.
