Ship Facts: Silver Spirit Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Silver Spirit Deck Plans
Best cruise ever
This was our first trip on a "small" luxury cruise ship and I must say it is the only way to sail if you can afford it. On first viewing the ship, it looks huge, but later encounters with the mega ships showed that we were indeed small.

This repositioning cruise across the Atlantic/Caribbean seems to not be popular as there were only 163 people on-board for embarkation, but it made for a dream cruise for those of us aboard. Like your own private yacht. Service was exemplary as there were about 2.5 crew members per passenger. The weather was mid 70's and seas were calm for the entire crossing.This was our first cruise of more than a week, and I must say it was great not having to think of repacking after 4 days.

We had a silver suite room, which was absolutely huge. All suites come with a butler and ours was exemplary. He wanted to set up a cocktail party every night as all beverages and food are included in the cruise price.

The ship interior is subdued compared to some other ships, but seems to fit the clientele. There are always little things that can be nit-picked, but overall the ship ranks with the best. They obviously read "commited2travels" earlier critique, as there was a Captain's Farewell Party in the lounge the last night.

Not having sailed on one of the new mega ships, it was mind boggling to sit on the open deck having a leisurely dinner and watch 3 of them come into port as we were leaving. There must have been 7-9000 people disembarking at once. Don't think I'll go that way.

We tried all of the 6 restaurants and they were all good. Three of them have small surcharges and are intimate dining venues. We loved the outdoor "Hot Rocks" dining area that allowed us to cook part of our own meal.

Overall, the 6 people in our group felt that this was a cruise to remember and, consequently, we signed up for a future cruise on this ship. By the way, Silverseas has a policy that allows you to put down a small deposit onboard and then gives you a year to decide on another cruise with a 5% discount. If you decide not to go or have not decided within a year, they will refund your money.
