Extraordinary Seabourn Ovation's Rave Reviews

As our newest ultra-luxury ship, Seabourn Ovation, continues its maiden season, it keeps receiving rave reviews from both guests and travel professional from around the world. Read some of the latest reviews about our new ship:

The Australian Financial Review
Seabourn Ovation's first voyage on the Adriatic Sea from Venice to Valletta
"As with high-end cruise lines generally, Seabourn has a steady roll call of loyal passengers – among them on this voyage, a dozen who have been on every inaugural sailing in the company's 30-year history. But chatting to fellow passengers – mostly Americans aged 50-plus, but Germans, Australians and English, too – it seems even the most blasé of them agree that Seabourn has outdone itself with this send-off.

I'd contend it's outdone itself with the crew, too, under the unflappable Norwegian captain Stig Betten."

The Miami Herald
They once said small, luxury ships wouldn't be profitable. Now they are building more.
"On Seabourn, the personal bar in each cabin (called a suite) is stocked with your favorite drinks, alcoholic or not. Caviar is free (you just pick up the phone and request it). So is the highly attentive service by the crew. Seabourn folks call their service intuitive, which is what I found when I bellied up to the bar…"

Seabourn Ovation: A New Luxury Ship Doubles as an Art Gallery
"Guests won't be expecting fine art perhaps, let alone lots of it. But they are in for a great treat to come. As part of his design work, (Adam) Tihany also brought on board the curator and advisor group ArtLink to turn the ship into a floating art gallery.

You could try, but with some 1,600 pieces of art produced by 120 international artists, you'll never be able to see all of the Seabourn Ovation collection."

World of Cruising
Ship Review: All Rise for the Brilliant Seabourn Ovation
Six-star service, "crystal bowl" therapy and private cabanas with caviar and champagne make Seabourn Ovation the ultimate sanctuary at sea.

5 Ways the Right Cruise Beats a Resort Vacation
"I've been to 41 countries on six continents, but until recently, the only cruise I'd taken was an overnight ferry from Maine to Nova Scotia… But it wasn't until I stepped on board the Ovation that I realized how similar a cruise is to a resort vacation—but also how much better it can be…"

Seabourn Ovation: High Design, Haute Cuisine, Lofty Leisure
"Keller, Rice, Weil & Tihany. No, it's not a high-powered law firm. But on the new small luxury ship Seabourn Ovation you are reaping the benefits of a few creative geniuses having lent the ship their respective talents."
