Review In Brief


CruiseOyster rate the Veranda staterooms aboard the Seabourn Odyssey as some of the best at sea. With extra large marble bathrooms and exceptional cabin space they are big enough to rival many land based hotel rooms.

Veranda Suite: Seabourn Odyssey Review


The Seabourn Odyssey Veranda Suite boasts an impressive 27.5 sq.m. (295 sq. ft.) of internal space. A very large marble bathroom and walk-in wardrobe are both accessed from the long entry hallway, beyond which a sleeping area and living space lead onto an expansive, private teak veranda measuring 6.5 sq.m. (70 sq.ft.).

The veranda

Arguably the best part of the Seabourn Odyssey Veranda Suite is the teak veranda itself. It is wide, very deep and private with plenty of room for the outdoor furniture that includes a table, armchairs and ottomans. (It should be noted that balconies on decks 4 and 5 are partially enclosed. Rather than floor to railing glass the bottom 30cm/12in is metal.)

The living space

Inside, the décor is bold and modern with sharp lines and a bright, neutral colour palate. Attractive artworks hang from the walls.

The living area is where the Seabourn Odyssey Veranda Suite really shines. Unlike traditional stateroom layouts it has no shelving or coffee table cluttering the space. This has the dramatic effect of opening up the area and giving a great sense of roominess. A full sized 2-seater dining table sits on one side with a large lounge against the opposite wall, leaving heaps of space to move in between. A cleverly designed ottoman doubles as a coffee table with the use of a fitted tray top if needed.

On each side of the suite two unobtrusive, lightly coloured timber cabinets provide a visual divide between the sitting and sleeping areas. One contains the mini-bar while the other contains the entertainment unit and provides general storage space.

Bedding

In the sleeping area a queen sized bed is framed by a leather bed head and the ingenious design continues with the bedside cabinets including draws with small sliding compartments to accommodate reading glasses or other little items that have a habit of getting lost. A set of low sideboard cabinets opposite the foot of the bed provides loads of shelf storage. Fresh flowers sit atop the sideboard.

As is customary on modern ships there is ample room for luggage to be stowed beneath the bed.

Storage

The walk-in wardrobe (accessed from the hall) provides more than enough clothing storage space with plenty of wooden hangers and deep draws.

Bathroom

Next to the walk-in wardrobe the large marble bathroom is sure to impress with deep double vanities, a full size bath and separate shower. There is a generous amount of storage space around the vanities and on the shelving below. The initial bathroom setup includes Hermès soap, however this is replenished throughout the voyage with Molton Brown spa products.

In the hall between the walk-in wardrobe and the bathroom is an unobtrusive vanity area with a handy mirror for checking yourself before leaving the suite.

Our verdict

CruiseOyster highly recommend the Seabourn Odyssey Veranda Suite for its generous size and smart design.

    In the Veranda Suite on the Odyssey, where is the tv located? It is not pictured in the video or other photos.

      Dear Constance,
      Thanks for your question – it’s a good one. The TV is hidden inside the timber cabinet that separates the sitting and sleeping areas.
