Thank you for the response. Glad to read that I am not the only one struggling with this “dilemma”. Our TA is EXCELLENT and a frequent Seabourn cruiser. He prefers the larger non-corner suites, but we are on a voyage which circumnavigates New Zealand and a port-side view has its advantages for this itinerary. We have cruised with Princess, Celebrity, Royal Carribean, Disney and Viking in the past but this will be our first Seabourn voyage. We are done with the crowds and lines of mass-market ships. We were so pleasantly surprised with Viking Ocean and are hoping that we will enjoy Seabourn just the same or perhaps even more.
