Q – This is for my husband. He works very hard in the construction business based here in Passaic. A cruise to him is an opportunity to catch up on sleep. Our agent, who I think is part-time, has us looking at some of the top lines on your list and we are wondering, between Regent, Seabourn, and Silverseas, which of them actually has a pillow menu he can choose from. I would also like to know about the linens if you have any information. I know this may sound silly but setting himself up for a restful week of excellent sleep is really important. Are there any general rules about cabin location you could pass on?
A – Good sleep is important on any vacation. We all have to be tuned in to the needs of guests who seek work-related relaxation and sleep.
Each of the three lines you are looking at has a pillow menu. This can be requested by your agent in advance or from your butler/concierge aboard ship. Regent has an Elite slumber bed. Seabourn has Egyptian cotten linens while Silversea uses Pratesi luxury linens. Nod to Silversea.
Avoid staterooms on the top accommodation deck, next to laundry facilities, or directly above any music venue. Some guests avoid booking next to a triple cabin as they are sometimes reserved for families traveling with kids. Hopefully your “agent” can take it from here.
