"The service at times was worse than shocking, however the staff did their best in what for them must have been trying circumstances.Attention to detail seems to have gone out the door and if they don’t up their service game and food choices they might find loyal customers choosing another option...."Read More

I have traveled with Silversea before to the Med, and when I saw this 7 day itinerary in the Caribbean in the middle of the Midwestern winter on the new-ish Silver Dawn, I was completely on board, pun intended. Sadly, as I noted in my cruise survey, Silversea has only 10 and 11 day Caribbean itineraries in 2024 and 2025 which are impossible for me due to my work schedule, so this might be my first ...

My wife and I chose Silversea to experience another luxury cruise line after recently (Nov 21) having sailed in the Mediterranean with Seabourn. The embarkation process was smooth in Fort Lauderdale and we were soon on the ship. We boarded after 2 pm and the cabins were ready at 4 pm. Our initial impression of the Silver Dawn was that while a new ship, the interior decoration was quite ...

Ship decor is stunning. Staff was awesome and go above and beyond. The ship had few public bathrooms. The food was average and disappointing. I had many meals where I did not finish eating the entree. Main dining room is poorly managed steaks were tough and flavorless. The Salt bar is lovely and has a wonderful staff. Cooking class was another highlight. The chef was sincere and ...

Silver Dawn, Very Nice But Still Needs Some Work

Just finished up a Christmas cruise to the West Indies on the Silver Dawn. Eleven days, Ft. Lauderdale – Ft. Lauderdale. Ship almost full. Embarkation: No real problem. It did take about 40 minutes, but this was more because of the procedures of the Ft. Lauderdale port rather than Silversea. Passengers were allowed on at 2pm greeted with a warm welcome and a cold towel. Suites were not ready ...

We’ve sailed 4 times with Silversea - but never again! We paid $45,000 for a Silver Suite on Deck 11. Well worth the extravagance - great comfort and butler service very good. And there the satisfaction ended! Food aboard is adequate; quality of meat 2 notches below what were used to. Lamb and beef poor. Lobster and turbot very good. Shrimps watery from freezer. Quality of food ...

Review for Silver Dawn to Transatlantic

We have done multiple trans-Atlantic crossings on Holland American, Celebrity, and our all time favorite Crustal Cruises which has gone into bankruptcy. We were hoping our excellent travel agent was correct in suggesting Silversea as just what we wanted. This was a Lisbon to Ft. Lauderdale route wit only stops in Funchal and St.Juan,, P.R. Weather starting out was a little dismal but quickly ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 20s

This was the first cruise we had ever been on and it's interesting how we even found it- we were looking at going on a vacation in the south of Spain and logistics seemed like such a hassle for getting between cities. So, we went in search of a cruise and some criteria included: luxury ship/rooms, long days at port (no ships leaving too early), and no sea days since we did not know how we would ...

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We have sailed on several lines including Regent and several Celebrity retreat suites. We had heard about the grand service, excellent food and lovely suites. We weren’t disappointed. However, I do believe after talking with many veteran SS cruisers that some things are not as they used to be. We found the food very good overall. The unlimited Pommery and caviar were a real treat although after 25 ...

This was our third Silversea Cruise this year, and to say it was outstanding is an understatement, very much a repeat cruise for us, having done it before, but the wife loves Venice and Rome, we had to days pre cruise at SS Hotel in Venice (The Bauer) again fabulous, and two days in SS Hotel in Rome (Westin) which was good, not great but good (Rooms very dated) Our May cruise (Athens to Israel) we ...

Silverseas Silver Dawn Disappointment

Review for Silver Dawn to Mediterranean

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Very disappointed. This ship was billed as a top of the line luxury cruise, but for me that was far from the truth. First, one of the main reasons I booked this cruise was to see St Tropez. After I booked and paid for the cruise I was informed That the ship was going to a different port farther from St Tropez which added hours more to the driving time to get there and back and turned it into a 14+ ...
