Silver Cloud Cruise Review by marymat: First class
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Baltic Sea
Obviously the ship has been updated since some of the previous reviews! Though we have cruised a number of times in the past (with Tauck) and this was our second Silversea cruise, it was certainly our very best experience. Everything from the spacious cabin on the 5th deck to the food and service was outstanding. We are both rather large individuals and were impressed with the size of the shower (!) and the walk-in closet.
We tried the buffet for lunch one time, but preferred to be waited on and so ate our meals in the main dining room and thoroughly enjoyed the exceptional service, the quality of each course and the selection of wines. And yes, sommelier will bring a different wine if you ask. Waiters in the main dining room are the friendliest ever, remembering our names each time we were seated. The same was true of the bartender and waitstaff in the 5th fl. cocktail lounge. Joseph, who served us coffee and tea on the observation lounge in the mornings had an exceptional More smile, all day.....when we saw him at lunch and again at dinner in the dining room. He never stopped smiling!
Our butler Dick and Rosa our attendant were so attentive.
We are sold on Silversea and cant wait to plan our next cruise. Less

Cabin review: 535
Quite spacious cabin with room to move about. Walk-in closet is a blessing and the bathroom with shower with seat is wonderful. Located mid ship our cabin was quiet.
Port and Shore Excursions
Fabulous. Incredible decor in the palace
Gardens were particularly lovely. Palace outshines Versailles
The gold room was well worth the visit
Taillinn is well worth a visit. So many parks (reminded me of Svannah) . Our tour guide was wonderful taking us to the appropriate old parts of the city. this city is not to be missed.
