I did not like paying for all my excursions off the ship. Being charged additional for 2 of the 4 restaurants on board was very petty. I felt after saying all food was included was a lie. The food was excellent and so was the service. The pool was closed 2 days do to filter issues and the excersiize facility was too small. Two of the 4 machines were out of order! Not very appealing for a choice for a second cruise! I felt I was overcharged and underdelivered on my cruise package!!! I am a Colonel in a Bourbon Society in SC and the 2 Bourbon selection Jim Beam and Makers Mark were very poor A 2 star Bourbon for a 5 star cruise! You need Blantons and Woodford Reserve at a minimum! Wake up and smell the roses....we did meet 2 nice couples on board and the Artwork was excellent. You did not offer photos as a souvenir or an art show or auction.. Read Less

Chose this cruise because of the ports and the emphasis on Champagne . Every thing connected with that part of the trip was excellent. didn't like the fact of sooo many tender dockings and did not like where the shipswere docked when we did go to a port. They were far from the destinations. There were shuttle buses to take us to towns and that was great if you didn't go on ships tours. Oyster tasting excursion was excellent. Didn't do any other shore trips because they were frightfully expensive. Trip from Rouen to Paris airport was another long bus ride. AIrport service was excellent. Attendant at airport was very accommodating. Dining room service was excellent and so were cabin attendants. Every one went overboard to make sure you were pleased except for the reception desk. They were inexperience .One said this was her first ttime. Cruise director was very attentive and tried so hard to be helpful when something wasn't running smoothly. Read Less

The Silver Spirit is a beautiful ship with many places, both inside and out, to spend time. The itinerary was as beautiful a one as I could have imagined. Each destination was interesting and welcoming, and Dr. Sherri Hut's talks were wonderful preparations for sightseeing. The food was excellent for the most part, and our butler, Maurice, couldnot have done enough to make us comfortable. I appreciated the suggestions of the Maitre d' to join other couples if we were by ourselves. We would definitely choose Silversea for another voyage. Things to be improved upon: 1. Aiport arrival was chaotic, and at least two passengers' names were not on the list. This should not be hard to fix. 2. The Japanese restaurant was disappointing from the cuisine's point of view (the service was fine.) Not worth the special reservation status. 3. The excursions were too expensive. For example a $199.00 price tag to go to Santiagode Compostela was a rip off. About an hour coach ride either way, the price was probably justified by the wine and snacks at the lovely hotel of the Reyes Catolicos, which were nice, but not necessary. I really wanted to see the ceremony of the 'Botafumeiro' in the cathedral, and the guides were pretty inflexible about allowing time for it. The answer was simply "I'm sorry, we can't do it."
