Had a great time on prior Silver Muse of Eastern Mediterranean, Rome to Venice and wanted to experience the Western portion, Athens to Barcelona. The excursions were well thought out, had excellent guides and were well rated as to difficulty. All needs were supplied by and excellent staff. Traveling as a couple, we met many others who became friends. Entertainment was varied and professional. ...

Very Nice Ship But Service and Cuisine Do Not Justify Price Point

The ship is new and is beautiful! But we have been on many other ocean and river cruises and, aside from the ship, the price point is not justified. We did not see our butler until we called him to the room and hardly saw him after that. While some meals were outstanding, in general the cuisine was not any better than what we have experienced on Uniworld and Tauck river cruises at far lower ...

Liked the itinerary and found the ports in Greece to be very disappointing. restaurants on board the ship disappointing overall food very disappointing cold food and poor options. Our Butler service was poor. Virtually no entertainment on board. The Ports in Greece were very disappointing to us. Disembarkation was the worst I have ever experienced. 2+ hours to disembark a ship of this size. ...

We liked the itinerary. We liked that the ship was new.The breakfasts were good but with no "assigned" waiters it was chaotic on sea days. Lunches--were excellent. Dinners were "OK". We ate dinner at 2 restaurants that didn't require reservations but like La Terrazza (Italian) best although pitifully refrigerated. The decor as just "OK"--you can't please everyone's personal taste. We used your ...

Chose cruise for itinerary. Usually sail with Crystal and I missed them! This ship pretty but staterooms' soundproofing lacking because TVs were in wall. Could hear neighbors' TV right through the wall, Food was not memorable and passengers had no open seating option. Had to reserve every night--earliest was a 7 p.m. reservation. One show each night at 9:45 or 10 p.m. --not good for those ...

The ship is new & beautiful, & the staterooms are terrific. All the ports of call were excellent, & the people working on the ship were great. The shore excursions that we took were, for the most part, excellent. We especially liked the Opera nights, & we really enjoyed the late night dancing up in the Panorama lounge. The decision to spread the dining between multiple restaurants was ...

Embarkation from the port in Athens was remarkably smooth and fast. We were among the very first passengers there which probably helped. We went to the pool deck for lunch and it wasn't too long before we were allowed to go to our suite. Luggage took a little while to arrive, but not an unacceptable amount of time. The ship is pristine. Our silver suite on deck 10 was extremely ...

Not pleased with the Silver Muse or Silversea cruise line!

We selected this ship because of the itinerary and the fact the ship was new. It is underwhelming ship, the decorating was prefabricated a la Mobil home like. The public restrooms were so cheap looking, I hesitated to use them. The decor on the stairwells were ridiculous looking, so skimpy and unimaginative. There was not a nice place to take a photograph. The room was alright, not great. The ...

Recommendation from friend, Nice itinerary. Did not feel like we where in a top cruise. I prefer by far the treatment received at other luxury cruises (Seabourne is great). Ship was beautiful, food great (though sometimes extremely slow, once we had to wait 1 hour between our soup and main dish at Indochine, The waiter was very ashamed of the situation but that is not an excuse.) There seemed ...

Have sailed with Silverseas before and liked it. However, the experiments on Muse were a failure in my opinion. No open dining! Well, we made reservations for several nights. The problem was we met some great people and the 8 of us wanted to have dinner together. They made that almost impossible so we ended up dining off the ship in the evenings when we were in port until 10. There were a ...
