Great Cruise with Some Minor Service Issues

Review for Silver Spirit to Africa

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

This was our first Silversea cruise and 19th cruise overall. We sailed on 10 different lines, including Crystal, Oceania, Azamara and more. Overall, it was a great cruise, but I must say I expected more from a "6 star line with intuitive service". The service was good to very good overall, but we didn't feel that they "learn our preference and anticipate our needs". Embarkation: very smooth ...

Kudos to Kenneth Whetstone of Silversea - my second fantastic cruise through his efforts! Following is a “trip report” that I sent him. Having seen some “iffy” reviews on Cruise Critic about Silversea before I wanted to give credit where credit was due! ……Of all the people I met on my cruise, I seemed to have the “best of the best” in both hotel and suite service! Of course, I beamed from ear ...

Expensive and inexperience

Firstly the ship was only two thirds full and we were on board for 28 days. If you paid half of what they asked it would be still expensive and not value. The Seishin restaurant is supposed to be Japanese themed with a surcharge of US$40 per head. The Wagyu beef which is supposed to be marbled was not and the Miso soup was like beef broth. Any resemblance to Japanese was coincidental. The ...

Underwhelming Experience with Silversea Cruise

Silversea is promoted as – and to some degree is – a luxury cruise line with medium sized vessels (which translates to fewer passengers), attractive destinations for the more mature and experienced traveler, and inclusive options including shore excursions, wine and spirits, and gratuities. Just the cruise I was looking for after experiencing several crowded, cities on the seas with buffet dining ...

First time on this line and attracted by the great itinerary. Used to the ship and cabin layout as we are multi time cruisers with Azamara/Regent/Holland America. The experience on the ship was good with the staff pleasant and obliging. The food was very good and found their approach to dress standards sensible, although some do push the envelope and look 'too casual' after hours in areas such as ...

My wife and I are seasoned cruisers, having over the last 20 years plus enjoyed 41 previous cruises all around the world. None of them will be remembered so vividly as this one but sadly not for the right reasons. This cruise on the Norwegian Spirit was our 1st with N.C.L. for 18 years, the last time cruising the Hawaiian islands on board the Star. After this experience it will most certainly ...

16 consecutive days at sea around the Indian Ocean

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We booked a cruise from Dubai to Cape Town on the Norwegian Spirit because it had an interesting itinerary but, after just 3 stops, we ended up with 16 consecutive days at sea. During embarkation we were disappointed to learn that the stop at Nosy Be, Madagascar, had been cancelled but an alternative call at La Digue, Seychelles was scheduled. A few days later, stops at the Seychelles, ...

This was to be the cruise of a lifetime but now it will be remembered for all the wrong reasons. Even before we embarked, the itinerary had been changed. It was only when I contacted a tour company in Madagascar that I found out that Madagascar had been taken off the itinerary. No communication from NCL, though they were quick enough to send communications about booking tours! Little did ...

What cruise this was a non-stop ferry ride from Oman to Cape town

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

This should have been our trip of a lifetime, my retirement gift. Despite being informed of most port closures, NCL took the decision to set sail. From day 1 the cruise went downhill - despite having just come out of dry dock following a 100million dollar refurbishment, the ship had maintenance issues. Ceilings falling in, public toilets not finished, stateroom bathroom facilities missing to ...

We choose this cruise due to ports of call. But firstly, the CC editor needs to reevaluate this ship. Especially: ‘Bottom Line Excellent value for the high quality of food, service and itineraries’. What a joke! The food onboard was abysmal. Even after leaving Dubai it was virtually the same everyday and got worse as it went on. In the Garden Buffet after day ten you really ...
