Mahe - Seychelles expedition cruise
The ship developed a significant electrical fault in Reunion. Not happy! All pax were transferred to hotels - the capt advising the ship was under repair. We spent yet another day away from the ...
The ship developed a serious electrical failure on the second day in Reunion Island. We were advised that it was unsafe to remain on board - and bussed off to local hotels for the night. The next day we were told that the ship was still ...
We choose the the cruise because of the destination, Madagascar and it's lemurs. We had booked 2 previous cruises on the Discoverer. The first was for the inaugural cruise after purchase/refurbishing of the ship in 2014, to Indonesia, ...
The cruise was excellent, not many passengers and plenty of room to move around, if it were full though I expect it would have been harder to enjoy.
The staff could not be faulted, 10 out of 10.
The food though was just average, ...
Overall, very good cruise - very different from any others and would definitely go again.
Embarkation was slow, suitcases took ages to come and in no particular cabin order. Cabin is reviewed below - not sure extra money for balcony is ...
We chose this cruise as we had wanted to explore the Kimberley and this one offered great accommodation too - all around my birthday. The ship itself is rather tired and the water system needs a total overhaul as the water is an unpleasant ...
We've sailed on the Silver Explorer and were quite happy. When a cruise was offered to Macquarie Island, we figured this would be all good. It was ANYTHING BUT. Service, food, and cabin all great. Everything else was a disaster.

I was very interested in taking a Silversea Expedition cruise because I am an adventure traveler from way back. My travel adventures have included mountain climbing, rafting, backpacking, bicycling, canoeing and more. When I am traveling ...
I have taken luxury cruises on Cunard, etc. This had the right amount of pampering from our butler and the staff on board without feeling too stuffy. The activities bring out more adventuresome folks of all ages. We enjoyed the ...
With 77 other guests and 98 crew members we sailed on board m/v Silver Discoverer to Russia via the Aleutian and Pribilof Islands. This was Silversea Expedition’s first voyage to Far Eastern Russia where we would visit ...
I've always wanted to see the Kimberley but balked at the price of the cruises, looking at Orion and True North. When we heard about the Silver Discoverer we decided it was going to be worth the (extremely high) cost. After all, not only ...
I have written a review for this cruise on a previous occasion and it does not seem to show up. We meet at the hotel in Oslo for a flight north, there was complete chaos at the hotel with people pushing and shoving to get on the buses, not ...
