Embarkation/Disembarkation: Embarkation in Piraeus, the port for Athens, on 10 May was extremely smooth and easy. In a change from our typical “do-it-yourself” approach we actually stayed at a Silversea hotel and took their ... Read more

We knew in advance that the main attraction of this cruise ,ie Yalta, was off the port list due to the troubles as was Sevastopol but the info came through to late to cancel without penalty so we decided to make the best of it. Istanbul ... Read more

The best food and service we have experienced over six cruises with other similar companies. This was our first with Silversea . The ship however was a great disappointment. It was shabby and dated. It needs to be sold off as I think it is ... Read more

We had the pleasure of sailing on the Silver Wind for a Barcelona to Rome cruise in July. We are previous Regent cruisers and liked the itinerary enough to try Silversea. We found the staff to be gracious, fun and accommodating. They ... Read more

After being totally spoiled on a luxury Paul Gauguin cruise in the South Pacific I started researching other luxury cruise lines to fulfill my second cruise of a life time to the Mediterranean. The Silversea line matched the ship size, ... Read more

The staff on this rather exciting itinerary off the beaten path for most Americans was excellent. I have never seen a harder working or more dedicated staff. Our Grand suite was well designed except for the bathroom which was a nightmare ... Read more

This cruise was chosen mainly for the destination and the ports visited on the way. We usually travel on Seabourn but this itinerary suited our travels to Africa. Boarding at Dubai was a breeze. We found out shortly thereafter that there ... Read more

This trip was exceptional from start to finish, with a few middle-eastern style 'quirks', which were down to the locals not the ship. I would highly recommend Silver Wind to anyone who values the personal touch, the very very best of ... Read more

I knew the minute we stepped on board that this was going to be a disappointing experience. I was right. Basically, the ship was tired and worn out. This was apparent throughout. On all eleven days as we moved about the ship I found myself ... Read more

We booked a Mediterranean cruise on Silver Wind in April 2012. I am not one to write reviews but I depend on them when planning trips. We had a couple of problems and since the cruise line was not forthcoming about this I feel an ... Read more

Embarkation/Disembarkation: Embarkation at Barcelona, Spain on 13 March was extremely smooth and easy. We've never cruised with Silversea before so we really didn't know what to expect nor have we cruised out of any port other than a US ... Read more

We have cruised fairly extensively for nearly 20 years but this was the smallest ship we have experienced. We arranged our own travel to Capetown as Silversea had used up all their "block" before we booked. We stayed one night at the ... Read more

We booked 3 back-to-back cruises from Dubai to Capetown, and, in spite of concern that it would be too long a time on the ship, it was just the opposite. We easily settled into a routine and the days flew by. TheVista is the smallest of ... Read more
