The Seabourn Quest Veranda Suite is a superbly appointed home away from home. This spacious suite is one of the largest in its class. In fact, it is large enough for private in-suite dining. There is also a luxurious marble bathroom and a walk-in closet, not to mention a glorious teak veranda.
The decor in the Seabourn Quest Veranda Suite can best be described as Scandi-chic. Minimalist Nordic design blends seamlessly with Parisian-inspired soft furnishings. There are beechwood timber fixtures and soft tones of dove grey as well as sumptuous designer fabrics. It’s all very smart.

Personal Suite Hosts
Every Seabourn Quest Veranda Suite has a personal Suite Host. Their aim is to create memorable ‘Seabourn moments’. The Suite Host will greet you with a glass of Champagne and bring canapés. They might draw you an indulgent bubble-bath, or even arrange an in-suite cocktail party for you and your on board companions. Their thoughtful, unobtrusive service can make a real difference to your cruise vacation.
A sublimely comfortable living space
The living space in the Seabourn Quest Veranda Suite is among the most comfortable I’ve stayed in. It is supremely spacious and has an array of clever design features sure to impress luxury cruisers.
The space is like a junior suite in a luxury hotel, in that it has combined sleeping and entertaining areas. These can be separated by drawing a curtain.
There is an extra large, Parisian-inspired sofa as well as a dining setting so you can enjoy meals ‘at home’. A cleverly designed coffee table doubles as an ottoman thanks to its removable surface.
The Seabourn Quest Veranda Suite also has a Queen-size bed (or twin singles if you prefer) with a luxurious custom-made mattress, which I found very comfortable. There is also a selection of soft, firm and extra firm hypoallergenic pillows. Above the bed is a leather headboard as well as lamps and multidirectional reading lights.
On each side of the bed are nightstands with ingenious split-level drawers. They are ideal for storing reading glasses or other personal effects. I also liked the little book compartment for bedside reading material. There is also bedside power. Though its worth noting these only include European and USB-A outlets.
There is a dedicated vanity desk with makeup mirror and a thoughtfully placed drawer for storing personal beauty items.
A genuine teak veranda
The genuine teak veranda veranda is a real luxury. In fact, most new cruise ships have faux-teak verandas. I think it is the perfect place to watch the sun set with a glass of Champagne.
The veranda is wide and deep with room for outdoor furniture that includes reclining deck chairs and ottomans. There is also a table to enjoy meals ‘al fresco’.
It should be noted that the verandas on decks 4 and 5 are partially enclosed. So rather than floor to railing glass they are part metal, part glass from floor to teak rail.
An extra large marble bathroom
The extra-large bathroom in the Seabourn Quest Veranda Suite is sure to impress. It is clad in Italian marble and has gleaming chrome highlights.
The bathroom has a double-vanity as well as a separate soaking tub and shower. Though in my suite the shower temperature controls were fiddly. Also, some people may find the shower cubicle somewhat small.
There is plenty of storage space around the vanity, as well as underneath. In addition, the bathroom has a small cupboard for storing delicate items.
Storage space in the Seabourn Quest Veranda Suite
The Seabourn Quest Veranda Suite has more than enough storage space for even the longest voyages.
There is a big walk-in closet with hanging space for at least two cases full of clothing. There are also deep drawers as well as shelving for delicate items.
A cadenza in the living space is ideal for keeping things you tend to use less frequently. While the drawers in the living space were perfect for storing my laptop computer and other electronic equipment.
It’s also worth noting that large pieces of luggage can be easily slid underneath the bed for storage.
Seabourn Quest Veranda Suite floorplan
Each suite is generously proportioned with 28 sq. m. / 302 sq. ft. of internal space. In addition there is a veranda measuring 6-7 sq. m. / 68-83 sq. ft.
A wide entry hall runs down one side of the suite. It gives access to the bathroom and walk-in closet. Beyond is the main living space with a comfortable entertaining area. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors lead on to the teak veranda.
