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 ...

Yikes, Silver Seas is a massive disappointment. I have sailed with Crystal, Oceania, Regent, and Seabourn and I was looking forward to Silver Seas but it was a big let down. There is nothing redeeming about the ship and I would strongly recommend any other line. Three Big Issues: 1) World Cup- it was sold as a World Cup cruise. A few weeks before the cruise they send a notice to say Qatar ...

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

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

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 ...

Review for Norwegian Jade to Asia

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

we had to choose this cruise because ncl kept canceling our other choices, e.g. Hawaii, and we had to do 2 b2b because ncl said regarding our FCC, "use it or lose it". we usually pick ncl because of the broadway musicals and the thermal suites on the new ships. thermal suite used to cost $199 for 2 wks and $299 for a mo. the suite on the jade now costs $436 for 3 wks. and the jade suite ...

Review for Jewel of the Seas to Middle East

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We booked this cruise on "Jewel of the Seas" long before the Coronavirus scare and decided to go ahead anyway, as we have a daughter living in Dubai whom we wanted to visit. In the couple of weeks before the start date, RCI sent us several reassuring emails that the cruise would go ahead, so we were never left wondering whether we should cancel. I cannot speak highly enough about this cruise ...

We were literally cut off in the Coronavirus Epidemic so this review will be what happens when things go wrong. We are two upper 30s adults and our two kid, twin boy and girl who were seven and just shy of 8 when we sailed. This sailing was March 9th , so mid-cruise all cruises ceased operations, so this review will let you know how RCCL handles emergencies. The first two days were in the ...

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, ...
