Recommended by travel agent having been cruising 22 years with Holandamerica Asamara Majestic Princess and Celebrity we thought by reputation this could be good .This Ship is tired ,in need of refit .All staff ,food, and shows first class . Time of year for this cruise area should cease September 30th much to cold, ports missed, ports of call retailers closed for end of season Now you know research better than I. This has been the most disappointing Cruise EVER. Embarcation dreadfull .Ship late arrival due to prop fouling ship lines , force 9/11 gale, Ports missed ,other Ports we should have stayed longer like Boston 6 hours not near enough, a day and a half would have been much better.only had time for city hop on hop off bus and quick shop. We were looking forward to this Cruise and knew it was the fall and dressed accordinglay ,this was our first time on a small ship with 290 guests metting new friends and world travelers exchanging travel stories etc Read Less

This story is about the first days of the cruise, the Netherlands, Belgium and France. Sailing on a small cruise ship with the highlight sailing under the Tower Bridge .... On the Silver wind, I wanted so badly to cruise with this ship, the journey was nice and short; seven days, from Amsterdam to London. The ports of call: Amsterdam, Zeebrugge, Le Havre, Guernsey, Falmouth, Cowes on the Isle of Whight, and London Tower Bridge. Silver Wind is the smallest ship of Silver Sea, only three hundred passengers can sail, the number of crew is 210, the first ship of the fleet, planned to be converted into expedition in 2020. Pieter brings us to the Passenger Terminal Amsterdam, we board, and are again warmly welcomed by the cruise director and the entire crew. We do check in, and hand in our trolleys, and go to La Terrazza for lunch. This restaurant is one of the four on board; full Italian in the evening, morning and afternoon buffet. Within a minute Kevin, one of the waiters, is with us and asks what water we want to drink: still or sparkling, Silver Sea has its own osmosis system and the water is always fresh and cool. We start with a glass of champagne and say cheers to the cruise. We drink delicious white from Umbria and red from Valpolicella and go to our suite after lunch. There are no huts at Silversea, everything is suite and gives a spacious feel. At six o'clock we sail away, we turn on the IJ and sail past everything we know; the Eye, Amsterdam Tower, Pont Steiger, the Wijker and Velser tunnel, the blast furnaces of Tata Steel and the huge locks of Ijmuiden. Bye bye Holland! The pilot waves us goodbye while he steps alongside the pilot boat and we sail towards Zeebrugge. The nice thing about cruising with Silver Sea that you are always ashore in a port during the day and sail at night. At eight o'clock AM we dock at Zeebrugge, we disembark after breakfast, take the train and within fifteen minutes we walk into the old city of medieval Bruges. Bruges is so beautiful! Cobblestones, small canals, old churches, and age-old canal houses. It is full of tourists, so we take the back streets for our walk and choose an authentic Flemish restaurant De Vlaamsche Pot for lunch, we eat waterzooi and drink Trappist beer, and toast on Sunday. At 5 pm the bunches are thrown loose and we continue to sail, towards Le Havre in Normandy. We drink a welcome drink, captain Gennaro Arma introduces his team, then dinner in The Restaurant and choose a nice bottle of Saint Julien with the four courses. Chateau Lagrange 2007, how beautiful Bordeaux is when it gets older! Ace is our sommelier, the chef is called Jozef, of Dutch origine, and the journey is wonderful from the moment we boarded. Ace is our sommelier, the chef is called Jozef, of Dutch origine, and the journey is wonderful from the moment we boarded. After dinner we join the show where the Voices of Silversea give a beautiful Broadway impression, the theater is renovated and the seats and small tables are very comfortable. We will dock early in Le Havre on Monday, many American passengers want to see D-Day, they take an excursion to Omaha Beach. At Silver Sea you can book endless beautiful excursions, we as ex-aviation with thousands of destinations, arrange everything ourselves, within an hour we are on the bike, and yes, it is free, the municipality wants to promote cycling and invites everyone, therefore also tourists to take the bike. LeHavre is a city with a mix of fishing, industry and tourism, the difference between low and high tides was striking, about six meters, the river Seine starts there. It is the second port city of France. Almost completely bombed during the Second World War and carefully constructed under the guidance of the Belgian architect Auguste Pierre. In 2005 the city received the status of UNESCO World Heritage Site. And you see that everywhere, the city is a picture, the bike ride a success. We hand in the bikes and thank the rental, which is next to the SNCF the railway station, go back on board and eat in La Dame, the restaurant with Relais and Chateau status. I think this one is the best because this restaurant on the Muse and the Spirit has no windows and on the Wind it has huge windows Foie Gras, caviar, lobster and rack of lamb it is overwhelming, and I have to skip my dessert additional cost for the diner is $60 per person. We leave the harbor at nine o'clock on our way to Guernsey, one of the Channel Islands. The rest of the cruise remained excellent, good fresh meals, 50 open wines to choose from, and a connaisseur wine list with prices very moderate, so you can drink your grand cru or Barolo on board if you want to drink premium bottles. Highlight was the sail into the Thames with comment of a local pilot who explained a lot about the scenery we passed. The Tower Bridge openend for the Wind friday afternoon at 4 PM, all traffic was stopped and we sailed under the bridge, it was absolute the best moment of the trip. So little Silver Wind, with as always devoted and well-trained crew, we do love the ship, and are gracious to have had this experience. Read Less

To begin with this review, the cruise with the Silver Wind was fabulous as always. Food was great and the service could not be better. The ship need a renovation, but that happens nex year. Dining at eveningtime we prefer The Restaurant. Meals are very good and the service also. At lunch we prefer La Terrazza outside. It's so nice to sit there with a nice view. In St Peters Port the weather was the best, so nice then to have lunch outside. Service in La Terrazza exellent! Entertainmaint was also very nice, we liked the performance of the singers. Butler en housekeeping as always, very good service! Room was very clean. You may know, me and my partner sailed more then 400 days with Silversea. Why did a rated this cruise one ball? That's because of the price. I booked suite 439 (Vista) and pay including 10% off, because more then 250 days, and 5% on board booking Euro 2.254,- You may know, the last half year before this cruise, start the price was going up to Euro 4.000,- per guest excluding flight, transfer. In the Netherlands is a website for crew members for airlines workers and touroperator workers. They can booked a lot of Silversea cruises for VERY MUCH LOWER prices. There was a couple on board they had in the past worked by KLM and booked this cruise for Euro 1.700,- for a vista suite. Three days before boarding they get a message from the operator that they got an upgrading to suite 741, yes a Medallion suite. Almost three times bigger then a Vista suite. Also including free laundry. Is this normal? Of course not!!! Possible you know that pilots working with KLM had a year income to Euro 275.000,- The may also booking this cruise for this price. I call this larceny! Okay some people get discount, but that upgrading is far from right. Ans this was not for the first time. Last march this couple did a 13 day cruise with the Silver Muse from Singapore to Hong Kong. Price for a Vista Suite USD 1.300,- Once they came on board they get an upgrading to a veranda suite. First i was interested to do a cruise with the Silver Shadow from Rome to Venice in 11 days starting at september 22 this year. Price for a Vista Suite on the Silversea website Euro 7.700,- per guest. Price on www.insidertravel Euro 2.600,- for a Vista, per guest! NO WAY that we booked this cruise. Read Less
