Hey everybody! Scott here again. I‘m writing this post, “What Is It Like To Cruise On Seabourn?” today with both of my Labs – Huck and Eddie – soundly asleep at my feet. I appreciate their tireless efforts to help me write these posts. I’m not sure I could do it without them. Their input on grammar, context, and, most of all, spelling is pivotal to writing a great post. Thanks, boys! (Even though, as I said, they’re asleep – that’s neither here nor there. I don’t question their methods. Genius works in mysterious ways sometimes.)

(Right about now, you’re wondering, “Uh…? What do Huck and Eddie have to do with cruising on Seabourn?” You’d be right to wonder that. I’m actually beginning to wonder that myself. Hmm? Maybe we should just move on.)

Anywho…

 

So, What Is It Like To Cruise On Seabourn?

That’s the question that drew you in, so let’s attempt to answer it, shall we?

 

 

It’s obvious how it would be to cruise on Seabourn. It would be extraordinary! It is extraordinary! I mean, every flattering mental image one might have of cruising on a luxury line is met and exceeded. Everything we wrote here is true and then some!

It’s indulgent. It’s elegant. It’s opulent. Yet it’s also understated and casual. It’s not stuffy, in-your-face snobbery as some might imagine it might be. That’s the wrong image to have, if that’s your image. It’s spontaneous and delightful. It’s unexpected and heartfelt. It’s playful and relaxed. It’s the exact opposite of stuffy. And still, it’s luxury!

(there’s a story behind this 🤣)

 

 

It Comes Down To Your Subjective Definition Of Luxury, Doesn’t It?

If you check the dictionary, you’ll get varied meanings. On the one hand, it could be “a foolish or worthless form of self-indulgence” – which Seabourn is not. I can assure you it’s nowhere near foolish or worthless.

On the other hand, it could be “indulgence in or enjoyment of comforts and pleasures in addition to those necessary for a reasonable standard of well-being” – which Seabourn most certainly is.

Similarly, it could be “a material object, service, etc., conducive to sumptuous living, usually a delicacy, elegance, or refinement of living rather than a necessity.” Again, that sounds about right.

But, I think the definition that most closely feels like Seabourn to me is “a pleasure out of the ordinary allowed to oneself.”

 

“A Pleasure Out Of The Ordinary Allowed To Oneself.”

How often do we, in our everyday lives, deny ourselves pleasure, enjoyment, and comforts? How often do we indulge in “sumptuous living?” (I love that phrase!)

I’m not sure what “a reasonable standard of well-being” is, but I’d bet that’s what most of our lives are like. We accept the “good” when we ought to be indulging in the “great.” If that’s what luxury means, then I’m all for luxury.

A portrayal of luxurious living that shows us all “living our best lives” (as the kids are saying these days) is a definition we can all agree on.

And that is precisely what Seabourn is like.

Don’t think gaudy; think modest. Don’t think ostentatious; think refined. Don’t think pretentious; think unrestrained. That’s Seabourn.

But, let’s get back to our question…

 

What Is It Like To Cruise On Seabourn?

Let’s move away from definitions and adjectives. Let’s instead talk about concrete examples from Laura’s and my cruise on the Seabourn Ovation. That may give you a better glimpse into what it’s like, especially coming from two unpretentious, honest, and authentic people like Laura and me.

What better way to do that than to let us speak for me!?

Take it away, Laura and Scott..!!
