Seabourn Quest: Ship Details and Overview


​Built in Italy in 2011, the Seabourn Quest has been called “a game-changer for the luxury segment”. Carrying 450 passengers, the vessel is often the largest ship to grace the White Continent each season and it’s luxurious interior and facilities have made it hugely popular. Being fully stabilized, the Seabourn Quest is the ideal choice for people who struggle a little with sea sickness.

The Seabourn Quest is most notable for its excellent and award winning on board cuisine. There are a number of restaurants on the ship that all offer exceptional quality food. Meals can be had inside, on deck or in your suite.

The cabins on board the ship are all spacious and come with separate seating areas for added comfort. Facilities aboard the Seabourn Quest include gym, pool, Jacuzzi, theater, sky bar and panoramic lounges. Passengers on board will never get bored with nightly entertainment in the grand lounge, large casino and pool side service.

One consideration that must be taken into account is that due to its large size, the Seabourn Quest does not make as many landings as other smaller ships.

Does the Seabourn Quest have complimentary internet access or is there a fee? Thank you.

    Burnham Arlidge says January 22, 2019

    Hi Leslie,

    Seabourn do not offer complementary wifi in general. It’s a slightly sore point for many people as in this day and age, you would think it would be free on a luxury ship. I’m sure their policy will change soon, but as of now you still have to pay extra.

    Cheers – AntarcticaGuide team
