we sailed last year on the silver whisper to the fjords of norway. that was our first time on silver seas ship. we loved it so much that we booked our next cruise while on that one.
we were not disappointed. everything about the experience was seamless. we booked 901 and 903, the grand suite and the adjoining suite for a family of 4. for us the experience of the silver seas is like being on a four seasons on water. the biggest perk of the large suite is free dry cleaning and laundry. heaven on the seas for me!
check in was a breeze. we had spent two nights in venice before emarking. got on the ship at 2 and we were in our rooms within a half hour. we had the most amazing butler, catalino. nothing was impossible and he went out of his way to be accomodating to any wish.
the food was similar on both cruises. we loved the japanese restaurant and champagne as well. we are not huge foodies, esp since we were traveling with two teenage boys. pizza was a huge disappointment. they must need a pizza oven to really get it right.
we spent much of our time during the day off the boat. we had booked many our tours on our own. we did only silver seas sponsored tour, a cheese tasting which was terrific and well organized.
croatia is beautiful, great ports, our favorite being split. diocletian's palace is not to be missed.
slovenia is spectacular as well.
all in all, this was another terrific cruise and we have booked for next year as well.
