Review of Seabourn Odyssey

Launched in 2009, Seabourn Odyssey is the first and oldest of Seabourn Cruise Line's ships, together with Seabourn Sojourn and Seabourn Quest.

History - construction and ownership

Seabourn Cruises is a top-luxury (all-inclusive) company founded in 1986 and headquartered in Seattle WA. Seabourn operates on global itineraries, ranging from the 7-day Caribbean to 100+day Around the World voyages. Since 1998, Seabourn is fully-owned by Carnival Corporation - world's largest passenger shipping company. Seabourn is a signature travel brand and a major player on the premium-cruising market, competing for head-on with Silversea and Regent Seven Seas.

Seabourn Odyssey cruise ship

The 32,346-ton, 450-passenger cruise ship Seabourn Odyssey is line’s first new-class ship that accommodates only 450 guests. At 32,000 GRT Odyssey is the smallest built new vessel by any of all major cruise lines and features the highest ratio space-per-guest in industry.

In 2009, Seabourn Odyssey was named in Venice. She was built in Genoa by the Italian T. Mariotti S.p.A. All guests on that occasion were honored as ship’s godparents. A plaque with guests’ names was mounted permanently on a wall inside Seabourn Odyssey. The ship was designed by Bjorn Storbraaten and Petr Yran – the same architects who designed Seabourn original ships. In addition to larger suites, the biggest size of Odyssey is utilized for creating greater open deck space, a variety of dining venues and public rooms.

Cruise itinerary program

Seabourn Odyssey itinerary program is based on luxury World Cruises from Fort Lauderdale FL, Caribbean, and Panama Canal voyages. In Europe, Odyssey operates on Mediterranean itineraries with departures from Venice, Athens/Piraeus, Istanbul, and Transatlantic repositioning crossings.

Cabins

Like all Seabourn ships, Odyssey is an all-suite vessel. There are a total of 231 suites in 15 categories. The largest aboard Seabourn Odyssey is the Grand Wintergarden Suites (1215 ft2).

All suites have sitting and sleeping areas. Each Seabourn Odyssey cabin has a walk-in closet, safe and a flat-screen TV with special movies’ selections for free. There’s an iPod dock, as well. The bar and refrigerator are stocked in order to suit the guest’s preferences, which have been coordinated before arrival.

Their bedrooms are separate from living areas, which have a dining table and comfortable chairs. They also have powder rooms. There are several larger suites. The Grand Wintergarden is the nicest of all. Each suite is two-bedroom and has a roomy living room with a huge flat-screen TV.

Seabourn Odyssey wiki

Seabourn Cruises Odyssey ship is the line's first of all three newbuilt vessels. Her sisters are the fleet mates Quest and Sojourn. All of the three sisters have been produced under the same ship design. When they were launched, the Seabourn company bragged that this cruise vessel design will be the "game-changer for the luxury segment" of the cruising market. Traditionally for all ships in the Seabourn fleet, all passenger cabins (all are suites) have private verandas.

The Seabourn ship Odyssey is famous for having one of the biggest spas at sea, though the vessel is relatively small compared with other competitor lines' ships.

The naming ceremony of the Odyssey ship took place on the 22nd of June 2009 in Venice Italy. All maiden voyage passengers were honored to as godparents of the ship. A plaque with the all their names were later mounted on an inside wall of the ship. The next day, on the 25th of June, 2009, Odyssey departed on her maiden voyage in the Eastern Mediterranean (Venice to Istanbul Turkey), with ports of call in Croatia and Greece.
