Had a great time but not up to Seabourn standards.... sorry Silversea.

Sail Date: November 2013
Destination: Transatlantic
Embarkation: Barcelona

We were on the Silver Cloud years ago and it converted us to cruising. Truly it was our third try and if Silversea hadn't delivered I'd never have got my husband on a cruise ship again. Since then we have done another couple of Silversea in the mid to late noughties and - then due to itinerary only - really moved to Seabourn who we have done five cruises in a row with and loved. So.... when we saw this repositioning cruise that suited our plans to go to Barbados we were very excited.

The itinerary was superb, the company on the ship a complete delight - amongst the friendliest people we have cruised with and we would not take it back. But the food was really, really poor by comparison to the old Silversea or the current Seabourn, the cabins felt dated and a bit unloved and while there was nothing particularly wrong with the staff neither were they particularly engaging - other than the Maitre D' who I think saw the shortcomings and tried to make up for them but one man cannot More do that. The wine was also super average. The public spaces not really great for purpose and after Seabourn's Observation Lounge and central coffee square really rather dismal. Back to Seabourn I'm afraid.
