I appreciate that some people like the massive cruise ships that are on offer, especially as all seem to be vying for your trade with on board credit, free drinks (very limited), massive facilities, lots of entertainment; the truth is I'm ... Read more

This Silversea Cruise was an excellent experience. The boat was top class, the staff were exceptional and the food very good. The ports of call were well organised with information of each port being provided via a nightly news letter ... Read more

Just returned from 9 days on Spirit Venice - Istanbul. Lovely people/guests, great staff, and wonderful ports of call. Entertainment - missable. Shore excursions very expensive - cheaper to do it on your own. The furnishings, being ... Read more

Enjoyed the May 31st, 10 day cruise from Rome to Venice with some caveats. Embarkation was quick and DH and I had a lovely light lunch at the pool grill. Sail-away party was disappointing due to unresponsive servers at the pool grill. We ... Read more

Looking at all the previous reviews it looks like there is an upward movement in ratings for this cruise. Reading the 2014 ones I have to disagree on a lot of things mentioned and looking through the 2015 ones I have to agree on most of ... Read more

The good points of Silver Wind - staff and port visits. Other than this, please do not book a trip on this sad, tired ship!! Despite being one of the nicest, larger cabins (702) room is depressing. Front balcony crammed with too much ... Read more

We are in our 70's and this was a cruise with friends, back to back Barcelona/Civitavecchia/Barcelona. Embarkation was smooth but one of our cases got misplaced on debarkation causing a bit of a panic. Service was, for the most part ... Read more
