Seabourn Sojourn Review

Our Ship Review
Deal Expert / Travel Blogger

The 458-passenger Seabourn Sojourn is the middle sibling in luxury line Seabourn’s trio of Odyssey-class ships, geared toward a well-heeled crowd that likes things elegant and contemporary. The Champagne flows, the crew caters to your every whim, and you are free to do as you please, whether that means indulging in gourmet cuisine in The Restaurant or the new Mediterranean-inspired Solis dining venue that debuts in early 2024 (replacing The Grill by Thomas Keller) or borrowing water toys from the onboard marina.

What We Love

The Spa: In its large spa, this ship introduced the first at-sea Kneipp Walk pool, in which you stroll in hot and then cold water to improve circulation. Prefer a more hands-on approach? Try a bamboo massage. The spa also offers a mindful living program designed with Dr. Andrew Weil. 

The Pool Deck: This is the antithesis of being jostled on a loud, crowded pool deck. Instead, you’ll find a quiet scene with real wood decking surrounding the pool and two hot tubs, shaded areas, and plenty of cushy loungers to go around.

The Club: This aft relaxation space on deck 5 is a great spot to socialize both day and night as it offers an indoor lounge and bar and an outdoor deck with a plunge pool and two hot tubs. If they crave a bit more privacy, guests can also reserve one of the 15 cabanas in The Retreat, located on deck 11, for an additional daily fee.

Best Known For

Posh With a Capital P: This is small-ship cruising at its most luxurious. Go ahead and request another bottle of Champagne, ask the chef to whip up some truffle pasta; then, have your cabin steward draw your bath.

The Suites: The whole ship is designed with space and privacy in mind, and that translates into generously sized suites with sitting areas, big granite bathrooms, and walk-in closets. Splurge on a top-tier Wintergarden Suite and you can lounge in the hot tub in your own glass-enclosed solarium.

Who It's Best For

Those Who Can Afford the Very Best: Your fellow cruisers will range from entrepreneurs to bon vivants; most will be age 50-plus.

Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

It’s Expensive: Seabourn’s ultra-luxury cruises are pretty much all-inclusive (beverages, gratuities, and Wi-Fi), but they don't come cheap. That said, with all the five-star onboard perks, this ship offers a great value if your pockets are deep.

There Are Few Activities: Seabourn is not as much about organized activities as providing great places where you can read a book, relax, socialize, and otherwise hang out.
