Q - I want to suprise my wife with a ultra-luxury cruise on a small ship without kids and massive crowds. What do you recommend?

A - I recommend Seabourn.

With six vessels to choose from, ranging from just 104 suites or 225 suites, Seabourn looks (and feels) like a luxurious private club.

The moment you step onboard your intimate Seabourn ship and are greeted with a warm smile and delicious ice-cold champagne - you will feel the indulgence and pampering. It is a world all on its own.

If unique itineraries and gourmet dining is important to you, then you're in luck. Seabourn sails to the world's must-see cities and hidden off-the-path gems and the dining rivals the best restaurants I've ever experienced.

As I write this column, I am onboard the stunning Seabourn "Quest" anchored in the Carribean's posh port of St. Barts. I may not go ashore. Why would anyone want to get off this ship... it is perfect. The attention to detail, the gracious service and the spacious, all-suite accommodations are just the tip of the iceberg.

Seabourn is an all-inclusive cruise line with open bars throughout the ship, a in-suite refriderator stocked with your favorite beverages and fine wines poured at lunch and dinner.

The well-traveled onboard guests are mostly past passengers and several first-time cruisers with the average age on our Caribbean voyage at 50-55.

The clientelle are well-heeled and well-dressed but not stuffy or formal. The atmosphere is polite and friendly.

Over the years I have cruised onboard the smaller Seabourn ships, and loved every moment. But in my opinion, Seabourn's "Quest" takes the cake. An incredible amount of space per guest, more signature restaurants, open bars and lounges and the very popular "Seabourn Square" featuring a specialty coffee bar, library and computer center.

If you're looking for a ultra-luxurious adult oriented cruise vacation, Seabourn should be a terrific match for you.
