Oh, The Joy of Silver Cloud!
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan
I loved this ship from the moment I stepped on and was greeted with a warm staff and a glass of cool champagne. My suite was perfect: spacious (a walk-in closet!), well appointed and let's not over-look the veranda; perfect!
I loved that when there was a tour in port, a Silver Cloud staff would go with us. I just felt very cared for, all of the time. It was a seamless trip. I booked through a Silversea agent (thank you, Esther!); from the moment I booked, all I had to do was pack and show up at the airport.........I was met at the airport and taken directly to the ship, perfect! Boarding, no problem. Debarking, no problem! There were no lines anywhere...........well, perhaps the night of the "Gala Barbeque Under the Stars".........it's quite obvious the staff on Silver Cloud have their Master Degrees in personal service!
I loved having a butler! Patrice was a gentleman to the core. I know he serviced other suites, but he certainly was there when I rang for More anything. I did dine in my suite one evening and requested the entree be brought 30 minutes after the appetizer. Done!
I took this cruise as a solo traveler. Never did I feel alone, everyone was very friendly. It did help to meet people by taking a shore excursion (I took two snorkel trips).
The entertainers on board were great. The shows were a perfect length. THE most fun was the night they did "At the Hop" on the pool deck. Oh, my. Everyone was up and dancing to the oldies!
If I were to critique anything, it would be that the food wasn't 100% spot-on. I consider myself a discerning traveler and recognize that it isn't easy to please a ship load of diverse people. Less

Cabin review: DV715 Midship Veranda Suite
My suite was as spacious as one could possible want with every amenity one could want. My teak-floored veranda with teak deck chairs was perfect. The trip would not have been the same without it.Read All Midship Veranda Suite (DV) Reviews >>
