The Seabourn Quest pools and whirlpools
Despite the its intimate size, Seabourn Quest has two sparkling pools. There are also numerous heated whirlpools.
The main pool is midship on deck 8. It is long enough to swim laps, but also has shallow wading areas for relaxation. In addition, it has two heated whirlpool tubs.
A beautiful teak deck surrounds the pool and there are comfortable sun loungers, as well as shaded cabanas. There is poolside bar service, so you can enjoy a refreshing cocktail without leaving your sun lounger. What’s more, on my review voyage there were ice-treats and cool face towels for guests around the pool.
The second Seabourn Quest pool is on deck 5 at the stern. It is less popular than the main pool, but that lends it a sense of peace and solitude. What’s more, the pool has panoramic ocean views. There are also two whirlpool hot tubs. However, it’s worth noting that service around this pool can be sporadic.
Seabourn Quest’s most iconic whirlpool tub is perched atop the bow. Needless to say, it offers spectacular views. You can reach it via a door at the front of the ship on deck 6.
Seabourn Quest Spa & Wellness
The Seabourn Spa & Wellness is a partnership with best-selling author Dr. Andrew Weil. The treatments on offer aim to give a holistic spa and wellness experience, combining physical therapy with environmental and spiritual wellbeing. There are indulgent massage therapies, beauty treatments and acupuncture, as well as guided meditation and yoga sessions.
The Spa is on deck 9 and occupies almost the entire back section of the ship. It has treatment rooms and a relaxation area, as well as a full service salon.
Seabourn Quest gym and fitness
Seabourn Quest has a small, but very well equipped gym. In fact, the gym feels like it belongs in a private club. There is an array of quality fitness machines and free weights.
Adjacent to the gym is a motion studio and a fitness room for step-classes, pilates and yoga sessions. You can also hire a personal trainer by the hour.
Unfortunately Seabourn Quest does not have a dedicated jogging track. So on my review voyage most guests used the open decks outside The Club to jog or power-walk.
The Retreat on Seabourn Quest is a haven of deck games and relaxation. Located on the open decks, there is a 9-hole putting green as well as driving nets for golf enthusiasts.
In addition, the are shuffle board courts with a great view. These are also sheltered from the wind.
It’s worth noting that The Retreat on Seabourn Quest is free to use and distinctly different from the pay-per-entry cabana-filled Retreat on the larger Seabourn Encore and Seabourn Ovation.
The Sun Terrace
The Sun Terrace is a serenely peaceful hideaway on the upper-most deck of Seabourn Quest. It has ultra-luxurious sun loungers that make the most of the sun drenched locale.
There is no service on the Sun Terrace, but a well stocked supply of cool beverages is always available.
