Seabourn Odyssey Overview

The Seabourn Odyssey set out for her maiden voyage from Venice in 2009. Since then, she has gained a solid reputation for being one of the loveliest luxury cruise ships at sea, along with her sister vessels, the Seabourn Sojourn and the Seabourn Quest.

The Seabourn Odyssey specs

Weighing 32,000 tonnes and measuring 650 feet in length, the Seabourn Odyssey is a small to medium sized cruise ship. She has one of the highest space-per-guest ratios at sea, with the capacity for only 450 guests and 335 crew members. Her cruise speed is 21 knots.

Inside the Seabourn Odyssey

Constructed by Italian shipmakers T. Mariotti S.p.A., and designed by the original Seabourn architects, Petr Yran and Bjorn Storbraaten, this beautiful vessel retains much of her predecessors charm but with a contemporary, modern twist.

The heart of the ship is the ‘Living Room’, an open space on Deck 7 which is home to comfortable chairs and sofas, as well as cocktail tables and coffee bars. In the middle of this room are facilities such as the shore excursion desk, manned by helpful Services Specialists ready to assist you with anything you might need. This innovative space sets the tone for the ship’s atmosphere, which is warm and welcoming, with plenty of opportunities to socialise with fellow cruisers.

Seabourn Odyssey itineraries and shore excursions

The Seabourn Odyssey travels all over the world, from the beautiful Greek Islands to the stunning natural landscapes of New Zealand. The shore excursions available will of course depend on your chosen destination, but you can expect a wonderful variety of tours at each port of call, with activities to suit all activity levels and interests. Some examples include an archaeology and art tour in Istanbul, a gondola ride in Venice and a harbour cruise in Auckland.

Cabins on board the Seabourn Odyssey

As the Seabourn Odyssey is a luxury vessel, it does not offer standard cabins; all of its rooms are classified as suites because they come with spacious sitting areas. The smallest suites are approximately 300 square feet, while the largest measure an impressive 1,200 square feet.

All suites come with oceanviews, the majority with balconies, so no matter where you decide to stay, you will enjoy beautiful views, excellent service and ample space. Make the most of a walk-in wardrobe, well-stocked mini-fridge and an iPod dock. Spacious and comfortable, your suite is the perfect place to relax and unwind in privacy after busy port days.

Entertainment on board the Seabourn Odyssey cruise ship

The Seabourn Odyssey by day

Seabourn Odyssey itineraries tend to include many port days, so when you do spend time at sea you’ll likely enjoy the relaxed, laid-back atmosphere on board. While some cruise ships are all about action and adventure, this vessel is centred around pampering and relaxation. The Spa at Seaborn, located on Deck 9, is one of the largest spas at sea. There are six treatment rooms, a thermal suite, a hydro-pool and dry float, a sauna and several steam rooms, as well as a beauty salon, gym and fitness studio for group classes. It’s easy to spend a whole day using this facility, if not a whole week!

The pool area is also popular; you’ll find many people are content to relax in one of the many ample loungers with a good book and a cocktail in hand. If you are in the mood for something a little more lively, there are a few enrichment activities to choose from, including cooking demonstrations, port lectures and dance classes. These are great opportunities to socialise with fellow cruisers while learning a fun new skill at the same time.

The Seabourn Odyssey also has a water sports marina. Located on Deck 2, this marina might open one or two days per cruise, depending on the weather and the ship’s schedule. This offers guests the chance to enjoy the water without going ashore, with facilities such as a swimming platform, banana boats and kayaks.

The Seabourn Odyssey by night

All of the ship’s restaurants have a charming, elegant atmosphere, making everyone feel a little bit special as they sample delicious dishes alongside the fine wines and other premium beverages. After dinner, most people flock to the Grand Salon, which is home to Broadway style shows, as well as comedians, magicians and musicians, depending on the ship’s schedule.

The Observation Bar also has live entertainment in the form of a talented pianist; this is a popular spot for a nightcap, or a relaxed evening out with friends, as it tends to be quieter than other areas. The Club is more upbeat, featuring live music in the early evening and then a DJ as the night progresses. This is the place to be if you’re in the mood for dancing.

The Casino is located on Deck 5 and has several slot machines, as well as tables for blackjack, roulette and poker. On Deck 9 you will find the Sky Bar, an outdoor spot that is particularly popular on warm summer evenings.

The Seabourn Odyssey for families

Families are welcome on board the Seabourn Odyssey, but there are no dedicated youth areas or organised children’s programmes; they have to make their own fun. As the ship’s schedule tends to be quite busy, with several port days, older children are more likely to enjoy a holiday on board the Seabourn Odyssey than their younger counterparts. That said, the staff are warm and friendly and will do their best to help accommodate families of all shapes and sizes.

I have enjoyed visiting as much of the world as possible over the years. Europe and the Mediterranean are personal favourites, but there is so much to see very close to our little Australasian corner of the globe- one of my top travel experiences was snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles in New Caledonia! Cruising is a fantastic way to see it all, and we hope to make booking a cruise easier for both first-timers and old salts. From ship tips to destination news and views, we will keep you up-to-date. Happy cruising!
