We were really looking forward to our 6 star cruise from Buenos Aires to Barbados but unfortunately it didn't live up to our expectations. The Stateroom was fine, if a little dated and we went for our first meal at the pool deck. Caesar ... Read more

We have travelled on Silversea ships on 5 previous cruises, and they have been just marvelous. So we chose that company again to visit the Galapagos, departing Baltra for 7 days in the West Islands. We were expecting that the same ... Read more

I am writing this as we pull into the harbor at Baltra, after a glorious week traveling 435 miles around the Galapagos aboard Silver Galapagos. We came to the Galapagos to see pristine beaches and exotic wildlife, to snorkel and kayak, to ... Read more

We are experienced Silversea cruisers. Silver Cloud fell far short of expectations. Food eaten on board before sailing made us both ill. Heating system was broken for three days. Instead of apologizing, crew blamed cold weather but finally ... Read more

First time on Silversea; most comparable cruise we have been on was Seabourne, so that is the best comparison. We took a mid-ship veranda which was very comfortable: king bed, full-size couch, separate closet, shower and bathtub, toilet in ... Read more

The Silver Galapagos is a sad old vessel fit only for low budget travellers or the breakers. Neither it nor the service and quality on it lived up to any of Silversea’s descriptions. To avoid serious disappointment do not consider ... Read more

We booked the cruise because of the area it covered and we were not disappointed. Southern Chile and Argentina were beautiful, sparse, and definitely off the beaten track. The Argentine government had threatened to not service the ship on ... Read more

The first time on Silver Seas and the last time. Upon starting our cruise we were told by the Captain that we would not be stopping at the Port of Stanley, Falkland Island. This was to be the high light of the cruise as we have been to the ... Read more

The cruise started out exciting!!! Buenos Aires for 2 days. This was the only highlight of the voyage. The "Cloud" was to be "Renovated". Well that was the first letdown. The Cabin was old, beat up, furniture pieces, a filthy dirty deck ... Read more

This was our second cruise on Silver Cloud. Boarding in New York was delayed due to the ship encountering bad weather but we were well looked after by the ground crew with drinks, nibbles and $US100 to make us feel better. The ship's crew ... Read more
