Silver Wind is in for a full refit in twelve months time. This is probably twelve months too late. Looking tired, the ship is saved by its excellent crew. There was nothing intrinsically wrong with the cruise, probably still a good 4.5 star experience. But that is not how Silverseas is marketed. Fellow travellers were discussing looking elsewhere. Food was good but not exceptional. ...

We disembarked the Silver Wind in early June and generally had a very good cruise. The main attraction, certainly so far as my OH was concerned, was the sail in and out under Tower Bridge (note to destination lecturer - not "The" Tower Bridge, just Tower Bridge). We had a quick and easy embarkation and our suite, a classic veranda, was fine and looked in good order. We did find an item on a ...

Let me begin by saying that I have cruised many times and with many different cruise lines. This is not the worst cruise line I have ever been on (that would be Costa Cruises) but it is close. We chose this trip for the destinations. However, we were able to only stop at one of our original destinations. The rest were canceled or changed because of weather. Since this was a small ship in the ...

Once Aboard, it took an inordinate amount of time to receive our luggage (approximately 2 hours). The suite was very small and some of the plumbing did not work: could not regulate hot and cold water in the sink, drain in the tub (2x), then a loose faucet in the sink after the repair. Only 3 outlets in the entire cabin and 1 was already utilized by the clock. No loutlets in the bathroom except ...

Not a 5 Star Ship

I was told it was a 5 Star cruise line. This ship is past due for updating which I understand will happen this November. However, I found the cabin staff poorly trained or beginners. The food menu was very shallow. Several meals did not have anything of interest beyond a steak or hamburger. The desert offerings were very poor. With only a few nights exception, ice cream was the only interesting ...

My husband has been wanting to take a cruise around the British Isles. I liked the itinerary of this one and it fit into our summer schedule. I had thought that the Silver Wind had been refurbished recently, so was surprised that nothing had been done since 2008, ten years! The ship was definitely shabby, and not in a chic way. The decor was very dated, the carpeting in the public corridors ...

Chose from Tower Bridge so no flying. Excellent enbarkation but waiting staff organisation disorganised for first few days. When we left at 6am no hot drinks available. 3 days into the 14days the restaurant had run out of Pouilly Fume, Sauvignon blanc and Pinot Grigrio. Plenty of other wines but not to our taste, luckilly plenty of champers. Cabin staff excellent and cabins good. Ship seems a ...

It would be easy to start by simply saying we were over sold by a cruise consultant who disappeared 3 months before our Cruise ... It would also be easy to argue we are inexperienced , however thats far from the truth ... but the whole experience by both comparison , experience and expectation was underwhelming ... Yes the ports were terrific , and the experience albeit unique were difficult . ...

Food and complementary drink very good. Good variety of four restaurants, though the best, for which an extra 40$ per head was charged, apparently had the same menu every night. The wines provided free were good and the wine list for additional wines was interesting and reasonably priced. Embarkation and disembarkation efficient, little waiting, plenty of meeters,greeters and porters. Excellent ...

My previous experiences on the Silversea line ships were pleasant. The ship was comfortable. The food was excellent and the locations we were docked in were all close to the centre of cities except Copenhagen. The absence of classes and prepaid liquour packages was appreciated. We went on prebooked shore excursions in most ports and found them to be well planed and educative. Our cabin butler was ...
