The cruise line that calls itself the Yachts of Seabourn is in a building boom. In 2009, Seabourn, which sails perhaps the best of all the luxury ships, introduced its first new vessel in nearly 20 years. Another ship followed in 2010 and a third debuts in 2011, increasing the cruise line's ships from three to six and its total cabins from about 300 to more than 950.
Recently, I sailed on one of the new ships, Seabourn Odyssey, from Athens to Venice. And this week my ship review was published by CruiseCritic.com, the free interactive website that has millions of viewers who cruise, comment, and offer their own reviews of ships.
