Life Aboard Seabourn Venture Expedition: Luxury on a Cruise Ship
The world of luxury cruises is one that often goes unnoticed by many. They often elicit images of cramped cabins and subpar meals. However, step aboard the Seabourn Venture Expedition ship and you will quickly notice that this is a whole different ballgame.
Cruise Ship Accommodation: Defying Expectations
Comfort Exceeding the Ordinary
Starting with the room I got, it overthrows any preconceived notion about cruise ship accommodations being non-luxurious. My room was anything but cramped and felt like stepping into another world. Given the luxury that met my eyes, large and far from the stereotypical cruise ship accommodation, I was compelled to wonder how this experience might change my perception of future cruises.
Lunch Time on a Luxury Cruise Ship
The Grand Seafood Buffet
With eight restaurants onboard, the food choices are abundant. On this particular journey, I opted for the sumptuous seafood buffet for lunch. First on the plate were garlic butter prawns. Each one was tender, juicy, and tantalizingly flavorful, setting a delicious precedent for the spread yet to be explored.
Scallops and Salmon:
Next came the creamy scallops adorned with dill. They were not exactly to my liking, with the flavor a tad on the bland side. However, the delightfully moist baked salmon saved the day. The tantalizing lemony flavor was a perfect counterbalance to the rich seafood spread.
Desserts to Remember
Ending on a Sweet Note
No meal can be rendered complete without a fitting dessert to end things with. Fruit salads and ginger cakes made for a suitable conclusion on this occasion, despite little room for improvement in the latter’s flavor and texture. The ginger cake could have been softer and less dry, and it could have used a stronger dash of ginger.
The Gelato Station Regret:
It was only after relishing upon these that I discovered a 24/7 gelato station. With the discovery arriving just a tad late, I couldn’t help but regret not having spent my dessert time there. And thus, I counsel future travelers to seek out all dining options before settling for one.
Awaiting Part Two
So far, this journey on the Seabourn Venture Expedition ship has proven an eye-opening experience. From redefining the standards of cruise ship lodging to providing scrumptious meals that take you around the world one bite at a time, this trip has been nothing short of exceptional. And while this journey on the River Thames has yet to conclude, I find myself eagerly looking forward to the second part, more so with the prospect of gelato in mind!
