When the Seabourn Odyssey debuted in 2009, it ushered in a new class of ships for the luxury cruise line. This vessel accommodates up to 450 guests with 225 suites, providing the highest space-per-guest ratio in the industry.
The Odyssey introduced multiple new features for Seabourn. For one, it presents 13 categories of staterooms, 90 percent of which provide verandas. Two, its public spaces, including a living room-styled common area instead of the typical lobby, feature more open deck space.
Currently, the Seabourn Odyssey makes several Mediterranean and Caribbean itineraries throughout the year.
Rooms & Dining
Seabourn divides its staterooms into the following types: Wintergarden Suite, Signature Suite, Owners Suite, Penthouse Suite, Veranda Suite, and Ocean View Suites. The baseline amenities include Egyptian cotton sheets, an in-suite bar, a living area and bedroom, a flat screen TV and DVD player, champagne and a fruit basket, and 24-hour room service. Rooms range from 295 to 1,200 square feet.
As upgrades, the Wintergarden Suite adds a more luxurious feel with a private, glassed-in solarium, featuring a soaking tub, a lounge bed, and a bowed-out veranda. The Signature Suites, as well, are designed with a wrap-around veranda, which adds an additional 35 square feet.
Along with all staterooms, the Odyssey features Seabourn Square, a large living room area in place of a lobby. The facility comes decked out with comfortable sofas and easy chairs, while guests can lounge, grab a cup of coffee, browse through books, or use computers.
For meals, cruisers can choose from casual to formal options:
The Colonnade: This indoor-outdoor dining spot sets out buffets for breakfast and lunch and serves plated themed dinners.
Restaurant 2: This intimate dining option presents guests with a range of small plates.
Patio Grill: This is Seabourn’s version of poolside casual dining. Select from a menu of grilled specialties, salads, and baked pizzas.
The Restaurant: As the Odyssey’s primary dining room, The Restaurant is open for all three meals.
Activities & Entertainment
What truly goes above and beyond with the Odyssey’s new and innovative design are the activities on board.
For one, the ship is perfectly built for sunbathers and relaxation. The Sun Terrace and The Retreat, for instance, introduce respective areas specifically for sunbathing or actively enjoying the outdoors. The Spa Terrace, similarly, compounds to the well-known Spa at Seabourn with a villa, outdoor cabana, and whirlpool.
As well, like all Seabourn ships, the Odyssey is designed with the Water Sports Marina. When the ship anchors, the marina unfolds to an enclosed swimming area and offers boats, water skis, and kayaks for spending a few hours in the water.
For more traditional cruise offerings, browse for deals in the Shops at Seabourn, test your hand in the casino, or get a rejuvenating treatment at the Spa. As the largest spa facility on any luxury cruise, it comes equipped with a hydro-pool, a sauna, steam room, a dry float, a gym, motion studio, and a full-service salon.
In the evening, find your passion in one of the lounges. In one of these many spaces all over the ship, get a cup of coffee or tea, enjoy a panoramic view, listen to live music, or get your favorite cocktail and socialize with your fellow travelers. The Club transitions from afternoon tea to a venue for live music and a DJ, with a pool and two whirlpool spas outdoors.
For large-scale performances, get a seat at the Grand Salon. The ship’s main showroom is open for lectures and cooking demonstrations during the day and presents live music, cabaret performances, comedy, and classical music at night.
