Do not even consider a Silversea cruise. It is a totally regrettable experience not to mention the added pain of the exorbitant cost. The representations in Silversea's literature and website couldn't be further from the reality. We ... Read more

Despite some "uneven" reviews, our travel agent assured us that Silversea would deliver the kind of luxury experience that we were looking for on this trip. She was right, the other reviewers were wrong. The ship - and ... Read more

Having been a Crystal Serenity devotee for four years, we chose the Silversea Silver Cloud since the Serenity was sailing the NW passage. Didn't want to do that. Silver Cloud priced about the same as the Serenity, so figured the ... Read more

I'll be honest, I guess I'm not sure where the negative reviews stem from; I had a great time on this ship. First, let me say I'm not an experienced cruiser, but I am a seasoned traveler. That being said, I tend to enjoy the finer things ... Read more

I was nervous boarding as I had read a recent review that stated the ship was tired and in need of a overhaul. I disagree. The ship is an older one but had charm. Our cabin was well appointed and clean and there was nothing to want for. ... Read more

Silversea apparently had difficulties selling this cruise - the boat wasn't full. With our various discounts it came out at $ 400 total per night for my wife and I. But it wasn't worth even the discounted price. The ship is from 1995 ... Read more

This is our 42 cruise and our first with Silver Seas. Although we have experienced all types of ships, we love smaller ships and over the years we have heard so much about this privately owned company. Sadly we picked a 7 day cruise with ... Read more

We booked this cruise as part of a package including a pre-cruise stay in Cape Town , which we very much enjoyed, followed by a 4 night safari at Shamwari, which was amazing, and would recommend to anyone visiting this area. We have ... Read more

Our first trip to South Africa began with a couple of days in the lovely Cape Town before boarding Silver Cloud for a 10 day cruise along the coat to Mozambique and back. We had sailed with Silversea before and rated them lacking in ... Read more

My wife and I recently sailed on a Silver Seas cruise out of Athens to Rome for 7 days. It was to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday. Silver Seas aspires to be in the same class as Seabourn, Regent, Azamara etc. Unfortunately it ... Read more

We were really looking forward to our so-called 6 star cruise. It was only 6 star, in our view, if the ratings were out of 10. The service was, by and large, good: especially the suite butler. However, the food was distinctly very ... Read more

Our first cruise with Silversea after we had our fill of the huge 3000-plus passenger ships. We really enjoyed the cruise and were impressed with pretty well everything - the large, comfortable cabin with a big shower room and a separate ... Read more

Having cruised with Silversea prior on the Silver Spirit we really looked forward to our next cruise. Unfortunately we picked a Med Cruise on the Silver Cloud which has to be one of the most disappointing cruises I have ever been on. To ... Read more

We had cruised twice previously with another high-end cruise line that was terrific and were convinced by friends to take a vacation with them on Silverseas - Silver Cloud. Our experience was highly disappointing, to say the least, and ... Read more

Shabby experience. We were really looking forward to a high end cruising experience. Did not happen. Two out of five excursions were canceled. Prices of excursions were very expensive and should have been included. One out of the three ... Read more

We cruised on the Silver Cloud from Southampton to Barcelona and was actually two cruises booked back to back - our 7th and 8th respectively on Silversea. Both cruises were called L'Ecole des Chefs by Relais & Chateaux and featured ... Read more

Silversea promtes their cruise ships as five star plus - definitely not the case with Silver Cloud. We had previously sailed on the Silver Shadow and had been very pleased with quality of food, service, entertainment and guest lecturers. ... Read more

Our preferred cruise line is ALWAYS Crystal, but we were looking for a particular Baltic Sea itinerary, and we loved that this cruise left and returned to Tower Bridge in London. My husband and the couple we were travelling with were ... Read more

Silver Cloud ties up to HMS Belfast opposite the Tower of London. Finding the pier is not easy but once you have, the service is impeccable. We boarded at about 2.30 pm and were shown straight to our suite on deck 5. We were delighted ... Read more

We thoroughly enjoyed our travel on the Silver Cloud. The service was every bit as it should be, plus some. Our butler was very attentive and served almost as a secretary where necessary. We live in Asia and travel about 4 months out of ... Read more

First, I have to say I am so tired of reading negative reviews on the Silver Cloud. Who are these people? Professional complainers? We just returned from the same Baltic cruise several of the other reviewers were on and found it to be a ... Read more

The itinerary can't be beat. Sailing up the Neva River into the heart of St. Petersburg and sailing through the Tower Bridge in London was exceptional. But the dining really took away from the trip. We were told by some frequent ... Read more

We should have paid more attention to the reviews on this site. The ship was built in 1994 and supposedly refurbished more recently, however it is shabby in many spots--frayed carpets in stairwell, stained carpets in halls, toilets that ... Read more
