Comedian Nick Kroll used to do a skit on his cable TV show called “Too Much Tuna” which appeared to translate as too much of a good thing which is what we and 400-plus others are enjoying on Seabourrn Cruises lovely, little Quest. Even jaded seafarers such as we and we’re sure our well-seasoned ship mates will agree, an find few flaws in this 15-day Caribbean/Amazon River cruise from Fort Lauderdale to Manaus, Brazil.
From food to ports, service to the lavish suites everything’s coming up gorgeous red roses–which actually fill vases throughout the ship from the dining areas to the Square. Check out the list of Seabourn delights:
The Seabourn Quest
Today, Oct. 30 the Quest anchored outside the picture postcard island Terra de Haute of Iles de Saintes. Passengers were launched ashore where some shopped in the tiny boutiques, had a coffee or lunch in one of the French cafes or hiked to the beautiful beach where the water temp was in the high 80s. It’s a wonderful life of too much tuna.
Terra de Haute, Guadeloupe
Here’s that picture postcard pretty town of Terra de Haute, Isles des Saintes, Guadeloupe we told you about where the Seabourn Quest anchored off today. We didn’t do the beach this time but did swim in the ship’s pool this morning before breakfast-see next photo–and came back on board for lunch and luckily so because the spa girls were doing free mini massages–see that pic, too.
Breakfast in the Colonnade
Sorry, working on ship’s WiFi and photos out of order. This is one breakfast at the Colonnade, an indoor/outdoor casual restaurant open for three meals a day. The food’s been great, we do however pick up our coffee in The Square which is prepared by baristas, and is fresh and flavorfully strong.
Our suite attendant, Mariska, keeps the place neat and clean. The bed is so comfy, the suite has all the creature comforts, TV, mini-fridge with wine and drinks, robe, slippers, sofa, table, balcony, lots of storage space, walk-in closet, twin vanity sinks, makeup mirror on vanity, lavish soaps, shampoo, conditioner and body washes to use in tub and shower and cushy towels.
Caviar and Champagne pool party
The crew puts on quite a show and makes quite a splash with Caviar and Champagne pool party on the Quest in St. Barths. Passengers waded into the water to get some of the roe and champers. The Kir Imperials were superb. We did this on Seabourn before but on a beach. Nice change.
Free mini massages on Quest deck
What a delightful apres lunch treat–a free rub from Cystal from the Seabourn Spa. She went deep enough for me to book the full service in the spa, which, of course,is the reason for the comp treatment.
Everything’s coming up roses on Seabourn Quest
Gorgeous roses adorn the elegant Seabourn Quest nearly everywhere you look–on tables, in hallways, just one of the many nice touches on this sip on which we are sailing on a Caribbean/Amazon cruise.
