The 450-guest Seabourn Quest was launched in the summer of 2011. Her cabins and suites are identical to her two older sisters, the Seabourn Odyssey and Seabourn Sojourn.
I sailed for a week in the Mediterranean from Rome to Athens on the Seabourn Quest and wasn't surprised that I loved this small luxury ship as much as I did when I sailed a different Mediterranean itinerary on the Seabourn Odyssey three years ago.
Our cabin on the Seabourn Quest was #645, which is a standard veranda suite, category V5. Seabourn classifies this cabin as a suite because there is a set of drapes dividing the sleeping and sitting areas, but this spacious stateroom is basically all in one room. The 365-square-foot (34 square meters) veranda cabin on this luxury ship is much more spacious than what is found on mainstream cruise ships. The standard amenities found on all Seabourn Quest cabins include the following:
- Queen-size bed or two twin beds
- Dining table for two
- Walk-in closet
- Interactive flat-screen television
- Fully stocked bar and refrigerator
- Makeup vanity
- Spacious bathroom with separate tub and shower
In addition, the verandas (balconies) on cabins/suites are floored in teak and have a teak railing above the glass panel connecting the floor and railing.
The seven photos following this one provide more details on the Seabourn Quest veranda cabins. First, let's take a look at the sitting area in the cabin.
All cabins and suites on the Seabourn Quest have a sitting area that is separated from the sleeping area by a set of thick drapes. The view of the teak veranda and the sea from the sitting area is always mesmerizing.
The Seabourn Quest cabins all have a small table/desk that is perfect for in-suite dining.
Cabin Desk and Table
The table/desk has two comfortable chairs and is perfect for room service dining. Fresh flowers on the table are a nice touch, as are the glassware and bar supplies in the cabinet.
Cabinet in Cabin
This cabinet has a set of glassware and holes cut into the shelf to keep wine or liquor bottles from sliding off.
Next, let's take a look at the full-sized bathtub.
Bathtub in Cabin
Not many cruise ships have a large bathroom with separate full-sized bathtub and shower in all the cabins, but it's an expectation on new luxury ships like the Seabourn Quest.
Another basic amenity found on new luxury ships is a large vanity with two sinks.
Bathroom Sinks and Vanity
I love this nice vanity with two sinks and lots of storage space! It ranks right up there with the separate glass shower and walk-in closet.
I don't have a walk-in closet at home, but sure do love having one on a cruise. It's almost as nice as complimentary drinks in the mini-bar refrigerator.
Having a stocked refrigerator/mini-bar is fairly common on cruise ships. Having one with complimentary water, sodas, beer, and spirits is only found on luxury ships like the Seabourn Quest.
