"SEABOURN QUEST" a touch of beauty and luxury at Barcelona















"SEABOURN QUEST"is the latest addition to the prestigious cruise line operator, SEABOURN CRUISE LINE, the ship was built by Italian shipyard T. MARIOTTI at Genoa and was christened in Barcelona on the 20.6.2011, the date she embarked on her maiden voyage. "SEABOURN QUEST" can be fast, she can get to 25 knots but she normally cruises at 18.5, she is 32.346 GRT and has capacity for 450 passengers, the QUEST is very similar in design to her previous sisters, the ODYSSEY and the SOJOURN. It was my first live experience with this beautiful ship, also in port last friday were the NIEUW AMSTERDAM and the MSC FANTASIA and they were all due to sail between 5.30 and 6pm, so my decision was to go for the QUEST and I don't regret it at all, I was completely in love with this graceful, elegant and enchanting ship, this in my opinion is the answer to all the sceptics that assume that modern ship building relates to "blocks of flats at sea", I know she is tailored for a different market but still she is truly beautiful. The QUEST is of course known for luxury service at sea, she has 225 suites with 24 hour room service, offers four award dining venues and has a terrific Seabourn Spa. Photos, Barcelona 6.7.2012

  1. The Seabourn Quest finely illustrates how large cruise ships have gotten: Seabourn calls her a yacht but ten or twenty years ago she would have been called a mid-sized ship. Beautiful, though.
