Tromso to Reykjavik, August 10-25, 2022 - First time in SS with a limited comparison to Regent
"Our weather was cold for the most part, so this shouldn’t have bothered me, but Regent has these lovely “wicker” chairs that can almost lie flat topped with great cushions.Our butler and room steward were charming and responsive but a few details were missing (no robes, no umbrellas, but that was fixed in short order)...."Read More

Very Disappointing Cruise

Review for Silver Whisper to Canada & New England

We chose the cruise starting in Quebec City and ending in New York City, stopping in ports along the St Lawrence Seaway. We were eager to see what Silver Sea had to offer, since they bill themselves as an all-suites luxury line. Among the better aspects of the cruise were the ports and excursions. We also enjoyed meeting some very congenial people. Now for the truly disappointing aspects. ...

A disappointingly mediocre experience for a premium price by what was once a premier cruise line.

We are normally Regent travelers, but because of family circumstances we asked our travel concierge to get us on a 10-12 day Fall Foliage cruise on a premium cruise line in a specific date window. We had a choice of Seabourn or Silversea. We selected Silver Sea because of dates, smaller ship size, and their prior reputation. What a mistake. We'll NEVER sail on Silver Sea again. We so wanted a ...

We just finished 22 Days on Silver Whisper doing a B2B Fall Foliage/Canada cruise. There were some very good things, but there were instances that didn’t reflect well on Silversea. Unfortunately, the expression "You Get What You Pay For" did not apply here. As background, we’ve cruised dozens of times, mainly on Crystal, as well as Regent, Oceania, Celebrity, HAL, Lindblad, and most ...

Writing this now because I can not believe that SilverSea has been named best luxury cruise line. As far as we are concerned never again. To start with the positives- our butler and steward were both absolutely fantastic. So were the staff in the medical centre which I visited each day to have a dressing changed . However the praise stops there. Food, decor and entertainment all very ...

Not the Quality we Expected --

We chose this cruise because we really liked the itinerary and have always wanted to try Silversea. We were very disappointed. Beginning with no one from Silversea to greet us at the hotel where we had to wait for several hours in the lobby after our plane arrived until we were bused to the pier. After a few hours we took a shuttle to just get out for a bit and have lunch. We understand some ...

We always choose cruises for the itinerary and this one was no exception as it took us to the far north then through the Norwegian fjords and then over to the Shetlands and the Faroe Islands and then on to Iceland. Since we have sailed most of the Regent ships and only this Silversea ship, I plan to compare it to Navigator which is a similar size and age. Before we left, a friend noted that he ...

We are long time Silversea cruisers with nearly 400 days and have always defended them. Not any more. We enjoyed our recent cruise but it was hit and miss at best and considerably down market. Forget the dress code, jeans and tracksuits in the restaurant on informal and even formal nights. Guests were scruffy and dare I say unwashed! I actually began to dress down as I wondered why I bothered ...

We chose this cruise as a 1 country short break to mitigate travel risks associated with Covid Boarding was chaotic in Reykjavik as taxi drop off was at a crew reception area in a portacabin with no Rest rooms or refreshments At 2pm a Silversea representative arrived with a nurse - documents were hurriedly collected including the required PCR results and the nurse checked for pyrexia. There ...

We had high expectations sailing on Silver Seas for the first time. After 30+ cruises we were finally giving them a try. Unfortunately embarkation was total chaos, with no one from Silver Seas present outside, lines of people with no idea what to do, poor start..... The Silver Whisper is showing its age. Cabin design not the greatest with makeup vanity being at the end of the bed, thus when ...
