Seabourn Odyssey was the lead ship in a class that includes Seabourn Quest and Seabourn Sojourn. Like her sisters, she is an intimate, luxury cruise ship.
The décor is contemporary with muted colors. There are no displays of shock and awe.
Most of the accommodations are forward and most of the public spaces are in the back half of the ship. The public space centers around "Seabourn Square," a multi-function lounge that includes the library, internet facilities, a specialty coffee shop and the guest relations/shore excursions desks.
In addition, the ship has one of the largest spa areas in the luxury cruise segment. She also has the usual line-up of facilities one would expect to find on a modern cruise ship - - pools, jacuzzis, some sports facilities, a casino, bars and lounges.
One unique feature of this class of ship is a built in marina in the stern. This can be deployed, weather permitting, to allow the guests to sail boats and swim from the ship.
The ship has several dining venues. All are complimentary and guests dine when, where and with whom they want. The main dining room, called “The Restaurant” does breakfast, lunch and dinner on an open seating basis. Guests can also order from the dining room menu and have the meal served in their suites. "The Colonade" does breakfast and lunch buffet style but dinner is served and features al fresco dining. "The Grill by Thomas Keller" is an intimate venue inspired by American restaurants of the 1950s and 60s. (reservations are required for this venue). There is also a poolside grill.
There is live music in some of the lounges in the evening. In addition, the ship's production cast performs in the Grand Salon, a cabaret-style venue with a dance floor. There is also a small nightclub.
Most things, including gratuities are included in the cruise fare. This includes drinks and wine with meals although premium brands and vintages are not included. Shore excursions, spa treatments, the shops and, of course, the casino are also not included.
Seabourn prides itself on service, which it describes as “intuitive.” Seabourn Odyssey also has a high passenger space ratio.
Seabourn Odyssey underwent a multi-million dollar refurbishment in 2019.
