Silver Cloud's 146 suites all have ocean views, and 75 percent have private balconies. There are six categories of suites ranging in size from 240 square feet to more than 1,300 square feet. The Vista Suite is the smallest and does not have a balcony. The next step up, Veranda, is identical to the Vista Suite but offers a 55-square-foot teak balcony with a floor-to ceiling glass door instead of a large picture window.

The midship Veranda Suites are the best value on the ship, as they are well located, especially for a smoother ride in rough seas. There are three Silver Suites (541 square feet), each with a larger verandah and separate dining and living areas. The Owner's Suite (827 square feet) has two bedrooms and two bathrooms and a 95-square-foot teak verandah. The two Royal Suites pile on the space with an additional 200 square feet in living space. Finally, the two Grand Suites are the largest suites with stunning ocean views, 1,341 square feet of space and three verandahs.

Suites are decorated in beige and orange with wood accents. During the ship's dry dock refurbishment in October 2012, all of the carpets, headboards, curtains and verandah furniture were replaced. All of the sofas and chairs were updated with new fabrics. The new mattresses were made exclusively for Silversea, and they're outfitted with Pratesi sheets and linens. The beds can be configured as two twin beds or a queen, and passengers can select specific pillow types from a range of options.

Each suite features a sitting area with a minimum of two chairs, a table, a sofa and a desk. A makeup area with a small stool and a lighted mirror is another nice feature. Silversea's suites use space so efficiently that even the smallest ones feel like they have everything you need.

Other items you will find in the suites include direct-dial phones, safes, binoculars, iHome alarm clocks and a flat-screen TV's with DVD and satellite reception. Even the smallest Vista Suites offer walk-in closets with drawers, shelves and plenty of room to hang clothing for a multi-week trip. Silver Suites and higher feature CD players. The Royal, Grand and Owner's Suites also offer guest powder rooms and full-size Jacuzzis.

The large bathrooms in all staterooms have been refitted with new flooring and marble, and nearly all suites that formerly had bathtubs now have new walk-in, glass-enclosed rainforest showers (complete with seats) or bath-shower combinations. (A few suites still have bathtubs, so ask when booking.) The shelves on the sides of the bathroom mirrors offer plenty of storage for toiletries. Upon arrival, your butler will offer you a choice of Acqua di Parma, Bvlgari or Neutrogena bath products.

Each suite is assigned a butler (who wears tails); he's a phone call away to make dinner reservations, provide you with a different type of pillow or ask you which beverages (alcoholic and nonalcoholic) you would like stocked in your refrigerator/cocktail bar.

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....continue
