Lovely Silver Cloud!: Silver Cloud Cruise Review by Ithaca

Lovely Silver Cloud!
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan
I have to say that I found that the food was much better than in our 2011 experience; the wines, however, still need improvement (especially the reds). We ate fish and seafood practically all of the time, and the jumbo prawns were excellent in different preparations.
We did not care very much for the itinerary, but we were More aware of this when we booked. The in-out port was San Juan, which gave us the opportunity to visit with family. Apart from San Juan and all its historic sites and well preserved colonial architecture, the ports appealed much more to water sports enthusiasts, which we are not. We enjoyed walking about in the small port cities, and mostly savored talking to locals. We visited Tortola, Barbados, Becquia, Isle des Saints and St. Croix. Economic conditions in the islands are dire, but we found locals to be resilient, and very appreciative of the cruise business...even if its impact has decreased during these past years.
All in all, it was a very, very enjoyable cruise. Less
Cabin review: DV525 Midship Veranda Suite
Cabin 525 in the Silver Cloud is more than adequate and, actually, quite attractive. It is a mid-ship veranda. Very quiet. We had the AC to the max and it was fine, but we prefer to sleep in a cooler environment.Read All Midship Veranda Suite (DV) Reviews >>
