The Seabourn Quest, Seabourn Sojourn, and Seabourn Odyssey are all similar, but where the go offers a world of difference. This might be a once in a life time treat for some, but it will never be a routine even if you can afford this luxury on a regular basis. These ships are designed to make cruising special. The Quest was constructed by Italian shipbuilder T. Mariotti in Genoa Italy, and entered service in June 2011. She holds just 450 passengers and is the ultimate small ship experience, making you feel like you are on a private Yacht. Just eleven decks travelling at 19 knots, she is the sister ship to the Odyssey who gave her name to the Odyssey Class of ships.
The Quest was taken out of service for nearly two months form May 13, 2013 to June 2, 2013 for a refit where she was built. Work included modifications to accommodate Zodiac inflatables and cranes which they use on special Antartica cruises. There was also work done on internal plant. We have a Seaboard chat site now. It might not be as fast to fill as some others, but cruising is for everyone, and this is what dreams are made of.
