We chose this cruise as it was my mum's birthday, and we normally like to go on beach type cruises (last year we were on Silver Wind around the Caribbean). So this year we thought we'd try something different to our normal holiday ... Read more

Off season time in the Caribbean is a great price. Age of guests is pretty much the same as Regent and Oceania. Internet went out for a day and the captain gave everyone a $200 credit. Nice touch. The wine was exceptional ... Read more

We are not big cruisers, preferring to usually travel by private tours or independently. However, this cruise offered some very unusual ports of call that would be difficult to visit without cruising. First, I will note that our port of ... Read more

For our first cruise we selected SilverSea based on reviews we'd seen on a lot of sites, but specifically Cruise Critic, plus recommendations from friends who had sailed with Silversea before. We selected this 7 night cruise because we ... Read more
