Chose the cruise for its itinerary to Gibraltar, Morocco, and Lisbon as well as ports in Spain. This was the ships second cruise after lengthening and refit which had a few punch item issues none of which impacted us. The food and wines were top notch and the staff competent and responsive. The ports and excursions were well planned and very good. The only niggle was the self-service laundry which didn't work well and left clothes wet to air dry in the room. I should have listened to myself and sent out the laundry. Otherwise a marvelous experience. The embarkation & disembarkation was the smoothest we have experienced with over 17 cruises. The cabin was large and the bathroom spacious. We never used the tub and the shower was fine. Balcony set up with teak furniture. We never really participated in the entertainment as we were traveling with friends and ended up chatting. The casino was cozy and the staff friendly and helpful. Boarded in Barcelona (a great city to visit) and left in Lisbon (another interesting place). Read Less

Service was beyond expectation and the food in all venues superb. I liked the variety and ability to choose at no extra cost the different varieties of foods. Open dining was always a good choice. My favorite was La Dame even tho there was a small charge where the food was comparable to the highest restaurant you would pay 4 times for. Rooms large and bathroom larger than expected loved the sitting area. Our butler and room service provided us with constant attention to our every whim. I am a great fan of smaller ships and silver spirit did not disappoint. The amenities in our room were great. I prefer the all inclusive venue. It makes the trip very enjoyable. The tours were very interesting and easy to pick from the descriptions. My favorite was valdemosa and la granja. I enjoyed all of our ports and even explored a couple on my own. Read Less

AFTER 14 years of Mass Market Cruising I was given the opportunity to step out of the box and sail a luxury line. I did a lot of research and found SIlversea and I am so glad It exceeded expectations. Small ship, (500 pax range). Food, service, entire ambiance is just awesome. Cabins are large and comfortable. BIG Walk In closet and BIG bathroom. Nice size balcony too. Oh, the towels......I LOVE THEM.....BIG BATHSHEETS.....so fluffy! And the toiletries offered are BVGALRI.........outstanding. The food/service were all excellent. Staff is warm and welcoming. Food all very fresh and they will make you whatever you want if you don't find something on the menu that is appealing. Even the buffet is wonderful. Both breakfast and lunch, all so fresh, many choices and everything is always kept clean and spotless and the wait staff willeven carry your plate to your table. They are all always there to help. There are several restaurants on board, I tried 3 of them and was quite impressed. The GRILL.......you cook on a hot stone, a lot of fun. La Terrazza, Italain and STARZ,which was my favorite. It has a tasting menu and there is entertainment too. A singerand piano player who were both very good. The singers and dancers were pretty good too. I went to 3 or 4 shows throughout thecruise.....enjoyed most all of them. I met some lovely folks on board. I sail solo and there were quite a few other single/solo passengers on board. And I met other folks too......most everyone was friendly. You always get the occasional mean spirited guest...that happened too but overall,I found everyone pleasant and friendly. We sailed from Barcelona to Rome and I loved the itinerary. I took all my tours throughthe cruise line and was impressed. My favorite place is FLORENCE and loved it! If you are able to sail luxury, I would highly recommend SILVERSEA. I even gave thema payment for an "open booking"..........now I need to find another cruise! Read Less

We chose this cruise for the itinerary but, this specific week, because of the weekend watching the Grand Prix in Monoco. We began in Barcelona, a city we were anxious to see. We enjoyed seeing all the Gaui buildings but La Sagrada Familia was truly a work of art. It is a reason, in itself, to come to Barcelona. Cannes, even with all the crowds for the film festival, is a beautiful city. Monte Carlo (and the Grand Prix) speaks for itself. As does the charming little town of Portofino. It was so pleasant to just stroll around the town. The side excursion to Florence left us breathless and wanting to return. As did our stay in Rome and the sites we saw. Could not have asked for a more perfect itinerary. The ship was very luxurious. Our cabin was quite large and very well appointed. The choices for meals were many. And the menu in each of the restaurants was outstanding, meal after meal. There was enough entertainment to fill the evenings and it was all quite professional and enjoyable. The service by everyone was impeccable. Our personal butler could not do enough for us. Everyone always greeted us with a smile and hello - all the day long. It was obvious that everyone had the same mission - to make our stay aboard the very best. And it was. While you can't take credit for the weather - that too was perfect - the entire trip. All pre and post travel arrangements were very well done and took the stress out of our travels. Thanks SilverSea Read Less
