Outstanding Service, Food needs improvement

This was our third Silversea cruise and 23th cruise overall. We sailed on 12 different lines, including Crystal, Oceania, Azamara and more. Overall, it was a great cruise. We felt that the service was outstanding and actually improved compared to our previous SS sailings. This applied especially to breakfast and lunch buffet at La Terazza, but also in other venues. Embarkation: very smooth ...

This was our first cruise on Silversea after at least a dozen or more cruises on other lines, mostly Celebrity and Holland America. Naturally our expectations were high, although we had been concerned because of the many negative reviews here on Cruisecritic. Overall we felt that our expectations were met and we had a thoroughly enjoyable cruise. The ship is one of Silverseas's older ships ...

Poor service on Silver Spirit

A couple of weeks ago, we sailed on the Silver Spirit from Athens to Athens. We have more than 100 days on Silversea and the service has always been exceptional….until now. Just a few examples – We ate dinner at LaTerrazza outdoors at the beginning of the cruise. We had trouble getting the wait staff to pick up our dishes between courses after we finished each course despite asking. The people ...

We booked this back-to-back (31 day) cruise over a year ago. The itinerary took us to ports we’d never been before - Madagascar, Mauritius, Qatar, Abu Dhabi, Dubai - and we’d had such a wonderful experience on the Moon a year ago that we were looking forward to a repeat, which of course did not happen. This was our 63rd cruise, but only our 3rd - and most likely our last - on Silversea. Our ...

We have toured South Africa before ...Cape Town and Garden route route by road. We wanted to try a cruise for the first time as it included two stops in Namibia with Silver Spirit. At least is what was planned. After our booking Luderitz was cancelled in Namibia and came off the schedule due to so called operational challenges! And hooray was the message therefore an extra day in Cape Town! Having ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

The most disappointing and dreadful cruise I have ever had. We booked six ports. Received four. There was hardly any time at all on land. Most of our holiday was stuck on the ship with very little entertainment and no enhancement relevant to Africa. The food was poor to average. A curry one evening was the worst thing I have ever tasted in a restaurant. An own brand frozen curry would have ...

luxury ship. not a all. from the beginning of not being to board the ship in LA due to computer problems at the port, to the lack of service. the food on this ship was simply very poor, same menus every day. food was delivered cold and the staff really didn't care. tour desk and tours were a disaster. absolutely no one knew how to get the passengers off the boat to their scheduled tour. ...

Expectations were high as we flew to South Africa on time {the worry of travelling BA behind us} to find a totally disjointed hotel selected by Silverseas. Well, it’s only one night, it can only get better from here... or so we thought thinking positively. Next day came and we took a private transfer to the ship. We arrived at the terminal to find around 50 people queuing in front and an hour ...

This was our 5th Silversea Cruise and we choose it for the Itinerary. First time on the Spirit, embarkation was good, cabin great as usual. The problems started when because of Jet Lag we woke up at 3am, no internet or Tv working. This went on for 3 days. I even asked if we could move cabins and was asked" why is TV so important to you?" Wowzers, Wasnt expecting that..I said its not important ...

This was our 21st cruise. Having sailed before with Princess, Celebrity and Cunard. We chose this cruise firstly for the itinerary and secondly for the fact that this was supposed to be a luxury cruise. We searched and searched and could not find the luxury that was supposed to be aboard this vessel. In fact what we found was a ship in need of modernising and updating. The ships overall ...
