Service was outstanding throughout the ship. Dock locations in every port were splendid. We love smaller ships and wanted to go to Saint Petersburg, Silver Seas had the only top rated small ship stopping ...

We prefer smaller ships. We prefer upscale ships and are willing to pay the premium to avoid the hassles of budget ships. Silversea does a good job of advertising such a cruise. Execution is something else. ...
