I was provided with large varieties of food and also alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks were available. Towels, soap, lotion, and shampoos were also all available. Many diverse options were available to me and the other passengers. They did a very good job to make all opportunities helpful and fun for everyone. With everything including the food and drinks everything was a great value and I'm happy to have made the purchase and I would definitely do it again someday if given the great opportunity. The stay was very relaxing but also very fun with many diverse options of things to do so that no one would get bored or hungry. The stay was worth the money and it was a very nice experience.

It was nice but not enough for me to recommend. Some of the food was not satisfactory, but otherwise, this was a good one. One of the best I've been on. Cool, different than others. I did tell my sister she would like it and the activities. She would have a ton of fun. She said she might go. It was pretty good. I think I paid a very reasonable amount for this cruise. I was able to go with my whole family and we all got nice rooms. The rooms were always clean and we never ever found items missing like some cruises have. I have been on a cruise where someone took one of my belongings.

Nice restaurant and food. Clean hallways and populated areas. Informative and helpful. Accommodations were comfortable and up-to-date. Lots of entertainment to choose from. Different day trips were offered. Each port we visited had options to choose from for what we wanted to do. The pool and ballrooms were exquisite. Package included meals. We were very pleased with the food, price was all-inclusive, and was well prepared and tasty. Very pleased with the value of the trip. Quality of stay was very good. Our rooms were spacious and well decorated. Had all amenities and staff was very polite. Felt relaxed and at ease. It was a wonderful experience.

I was very impressed with the Family Adventure company in terms of the holiday delivered which was exceptional. The booking and pre-holiday experience was fine although it would be better to have a specific contact to email rather than just to phone the general number with queries.

Booking and customer service were good. From a child's perspective, FAC were not as welcoming. Another company we have travelled with sent a welcome pack with a travelling companion (soft toy) and activities to do while travelling. When on the holiday this company also catered more for families needs e.g. more frequent stops when travelling for food and toilets, without parents having to ask. The stops were also at more sensible times e.g. making sure there was a stop at lunch time (12.30ish), rather than early afternoon (1.30 onwards). Children (and adults) get irritable if they've not eaten making the journey more stressful.

              About Seabourn

              Seattle-based Seabourn, founded in 1986 and a pioneer in luxury small-ship cruising, is now the most luxurious brand in the giant Carnival Corporation stable, and among the best lines in the cruise business. 

              What Makes Them Stand Out? 

              Among its itineraries, Seabourn features extended voyages of up to 89 days in different regions around the globe, stopping at a wide variety of ports that larger ships can’t always reach. Seabourn’s four “yachts,” as they call them, have one of the highest ratios of space per passenger in the industry, and a staff-to-passenger ratio of nearly one to one, also one of the best. 

              Who Travels With Them?

              Mostly affluent couples in the 50-plus age range who want to see the world in comfort with like-minded fellow passengers. 

              Where Do They Operate?

              Just about anywhere in the world with open seas, including all seven continents. 

              How Does It Work?

              Seabourn’s rates, while high, include fine wines and spirits, and no tipping is expected. (Optional shore excursions, however, are extra.). All cabins aboard are suites, most with verandas, and maximum passenger capacities range from 450 to 600, which, in this age of mega-ships, qualifies as “small.” The atmosphere on board is “causal, relaxed elegance.” 

              Why Travel With Them? 

              If you can afford Seabourn and feel comfortable in the floating country club atmosphere, why not? Dining, accommodations, public areas, and service are top-notch.

              About The Family Adventure Company

              Founded two decades ago and based in the UK, The Family Adventure Company specializes in small group family adventure vacations. The company is now part of the global adventure travel operator Intrepid Travel, and trips are offered through Intrepid as well, allowing them to greatly expand their range.

              What Makes Them Stand Out?

              With more than 20 years’ experience, The Family Adventure Company helped pioneer the concept of small-group adventure travel for families with young children. Activities are wide-ranging, from river rafting and kayaking to cycling, sailing, camping, and wildlife viewing, all geared to the ages and interests of the family travelers.

              Who Travels With Them?

              A wide variety of families, including solo-parent, single-child, multi-generational families -- parents, children, and grandparents traveling together -- and families with teenagers. The latter have dedicated trips of special interest to teens.

              Where Do They Operate?

              Much of the world: Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and the Americas.

              How Does it Work?

              No matter where you travel, The Family Adventure Company provides an English-speaking, family-friendly local leader. Lodging, transportation and activities are also included. Tours typically consist of three or four families with kids of similar ages or interests. (You can also put together your own trip with just your family or other families you’re friendly with.) Children 14 and under get a ten percent discount off adult prices; large families (over two kids) get another price break.

              Why Travel With Them?

              The award winning company offers a wide range of trips for a wide variety of families. Because they only cater to families, they know what kids like – and as any parent can tell you, nothing is more disastrous than a family tour not geared in any way to kids. The company also supports responsible and sustainable travel practices and gives back to local communities.
