Seabourn Sojourn Inaugural and Maiden Voyage - Part XII - Some Videos and Photos
Honestly, I was not prepared for the Inaugural Celebration to be as moving as it was, so at the last minute I pulled my mobile telephone from my pocket and videoed the last moments. It isn't the highest of quality, but it hopefully will give you a sense of what "Seabourn Style" is all about.
To set the stage, so to speak, there were enormous floral arrangements everywhere, a huge ice martini bar, champagne flowing, passed canapés, and more. Then, on Deck 9 overlooking the pool (which also had a floating floral arrangement) four beautiful women playing a high tech string quartet started playing classical music with more and more power and volume culminating with this:
Now, I try to be fair and objective about things and this is a perfect example as to why I have so much more confidence recommending The Yachts of Seabourn over Silversea Cruises or Regent Seven Seas Cruises. If you recall Silversea's Naming Ceremony, it was a boring daytime affair with people seated in rows followed by a number of boring speeches. On the other hand, Seabourn put on "The Show"...and remember I haven't shown you the celebration for the Maiden Voyage Sailaway or the Seabourn Experience in Reykjavik as of yet.
