When I cruised with Silversea two years ago, I criticised the line for being complacent. Sure, my ship -- Silver Whisper -- was nice, but I felt that, because everyone was so busy telling me how ...

We flew to San Juan on the morning of our trip since it wasn't far so I can't comment on local hotels. The ship does dock in Old San Juan which is close enough to walk around a little if you have time and is a pretty place with lots of ... Read more

The cruise through the Caribbean Islands was lovely. Be aware the ship is quite small and book a mid ship cabin as to make sure there are not any rough days. We sailed from San Juan to Ft. Lauderdale with stops at many of the islands. The ... Read more

Booked because of the top notch reputation of Silversea. Was extraordinarily disappointed. The condition of the ship was so tattered that it was clear that she needed a full restoration. Tattered draperies (& with "moth" ... Read more

We recently returned for a 15 day cruise over the holidays on the Silversea Wind. We were very disappointed with all aspects of this cruise. The ship is old and in dire need of updating. Our air conditioning in the room did not work, ... Read more

According to American law no royalties are due for music composed before 1923. Silversea's playlist reflects that fact. Their live music is not performed by a band but by a "Quartet". No singer - none needed for a repertoire ... Read more

This was my first cruise with Silverseas and unfortunately it was not what I expected ! The ship was very " tired " and tatty in places, it is in my opinion ready for either a complete refurbishment or ready for retirement from ... Read more

As longtime luxury cruisers (we've been regulars on Seabourn and Silversea and earlier on NCL, Holland America and Royal Caribbean), our recent experience on the Silver Wind was, in a word, "MEH." Our Venice check-in was ... Read more

This was our first cruise so we wanted to do it right. We picked Silversea because of friends' recommendations and extensive review of our options for a Mediterranean cruise. On balance our choice was perfect. The ship was immaculate, the ... Read more

I thought it might be helpful to compare the 2 as we were on the Seaborne Sojourn last summer. Ship/cabin Sojourn is newer ship with a contemporary understated elegance. It remained me of a Four Seasons hotel. Silver Wind is an ... Read more

I know that I was booking a cruise on the oldest ship in the Silver Seas fleet and so my expectations were pretty low regarding the actual infrastructure. I have to say however that the Lady wore her years well and while there were signs ... Read more

Everything about this cruise is mediocre. This is our 6th cruise and it just didnt do it for us. If not for our room butler Rey, this cruise was a let-down. To make matters worse, we ordered steaks three times and requested medium rare, ... Read more

The good points of Silver Wind - staff and port visits. Other than this, please do not book a trip on this sad, tired ship!! Despite being one of the nicest, larger cabins (702) room is depressing. Front balcony crammed with too much ... Read more

We chose for the smaller of the three types of ships that they have. We have, in the past, sailed on the Silver Cloud and the Silver Spirit. We did not really like their largest ship the Spirit. The trip went from Athens, four ports in ... Read more
