Seabourn Odyssey Review
About This Ship
Cruise Ship Overview
The first new ship to enter the Seabourn fleet in over two decades, Seabourn Odyssey was launched in 2009, one of three vessels to bring the line into the 21st century. A pair of virtually identical sister ships followed, making Seabourn Cruise Line’s fleet a pair of triplets—with the newer trio of mega-yachts carrying twice the number of passengers of the older class. One of the ship’s unusual features is Seabourn Square, a “living room” that replaces the traditional cruise ship lobby with a lounge furnished with easy chairs, sofas, and cocktail tables. A central enclave houses concierges at individual desks.
As the first new class of ultraluxurious ships to be introduced in nearly a decade, Seabourn Odyssey and her sister ships promise to continue the line’s tradition of understated elegance and signature features in a larger setting. With more space, there are more pools, more hot tubs, and a two-deck spa. The specialty dining room gets its own dedicated space, and there’s more room to spread out on deck and in gracious public lounges indoors. As on the trio of smaller Seabourn vessels, there is a Club bar for predinner cocktails and an observation lounge affording expansive sea views. New for the larger ships is a spacious show lounge with a proper stage for entertainment. When the water-sports marina is extended, there’s even a third swimming option—an enclosed in-sea "pool" with teak deck.
