Seabourn Sojourn Cruise Review

Luxurious and spacious. Considering the excellent food and sumptuous decor, it’s a ship we would happily sail with again.

Introduction

An intimate, 450-passenger vessel catering to well-heeled travelers, Seabourn Sojourn arrived on the scene in 2010, making it the second youngest in Seabourn’s fleet of six small ships. According to Seabourn, the Sojourn is nearly identical to sisters Seabourn Oddysey and Seabourn Quest (launched in 2009 and 2011 respectively), and the ships spend the year exploring fairly exotic ports of call, many of which aren’t found on the itineraries of the bigger lines. The staff to guest ratio is quite high—just 1.3 passengers for each crewmember on our cruise—and the ship also offers more space per passenger than other luxury lines.

Seabourn charges a premium for its cruises, but the package comes with lots of extras, notably all tips and most beverages. There are no surcharges for “specialty” restaurants, and even the internet rates are considerably less than on mainstream cruise lines. So we were primed to evaluate not only just how good the Seabourn experience might be, but also to how the final tab compared with other cruises.
