A special holiday which didn't disappoint
As for the actual cruise experience, the suite we had was bigger than we expected it to be and the double sink in the bathroom and walk in wardrobe were fantastic. The bed was very comfortable. The food More was perhaps not quite as good as we expected, particularly in La Terraza in the evening, although we really enjoyed the lunches there. By far, our favourite place to eat in the evening was at the pool side for the 'Hot Rocks' experience. The fillet steak was excellent and the waiting staff the best on the ship. The entertainment was just perfect for us, Charlotte and Jonjoe providing background music in the bar, and the 6 singers (and Kirk, cruise director) providing a 30-40 minute nightly show. The quality of the entertainment was excellent without being intrusive, or taking up too much of our free time when we wanted to socialise.
The ports of call were partly why we picked the cruise so no complaints there, and having an overnight stop in Tianjin meant we could fully experience the sights of Beijing.
We definitely plan to sail with Silversea again in the future. Less
Our suite was in an excellent location, just along the corridor from the main reception, the casino, boutiques and bar. We had a terrace ssuite which meant although we had patio doors taking us outside, we didn't have a private balcony or balcony furniture.
