Sail Date: Mar 2012
Cabin: Deluxe Veranda Suite

Travel to the Port: We drove over cruise morning with another couple from the West coast of Florida to the Port which was 270 miles (4 hours). We parked in a Park & Go lot just before you enter the port on the left. It was about $11/day but could be less if you went on line before and printed a coupon. You park...a van goes to your car and unloads your luggage and takes you to the ship...easy and less than Port Parking.

Personal Background Information: My wife and I are in our early 70s and in good health. We have cruised 15 times but always on larger ships. We felt we wanted to try a small boutique luxury ship and Silversea had good reviews. This ship can handle 450 which is much smaller than 2,000 to 3,000 monsters. It is all inclusive which means food, liquor, wine, gratuities are in your base cruise price. The only extra charge are the tours you select and shipboard Internet service. There is also a surcharge for 2 of the 5 restaurants (later).

Stateroom #932:We had a mini suite with a balcony (2 chairs and 1 small table)which we rarely used because our cabin was next to the pool, pool bar and pool grill. If you could book this cabin or one nearby you will be pleased with the convenience. The service with our butler (Anil Kumar Mahla) and room attendant (Jocelyn Ochavillo) were first rate. Free washer, dryer and soap just across the hall from us. Fox and CNN was available on our 2 flat screen TVs. Remotes took a while to get used to because TVs we set in the mirrors,The bath room had a full sized tub and a separate shower (with a rainfall fixture overhead...very nice touch).Large walk in closet. We took large suitcases and still had more than enough storage. Privacy curtain between the bedroom and sitting area was handy if I wanted to read and bride wanted to sleep.Room service was available 24/7. Bride liked breakfast in cabin but I went to "The Restaurant" in the mornings to be served.

Cabin 932 Mid ship verandah

Perfect location just near the pool, pool bar and pool grill and next to the passenger laundry, 2 flat screens, balcony with table and 2 chairs, more than adequate storage, great bathroom with full tub, separate shower and top of line soaps and lotions. Sitting area adequate but spent most of time while on ship in the shaded area around the pool. Butler kept requested wines and liquors in our refrigerator/
