Sail Date: Mar 2012
Cabin: Suite

When we boarded in Singapore the Silver seas was docked next to the little Pride...it was so small I could not even see it! Oh my, when we boarded it was so small..low ceiling in the main lounge...oh my...but our cabin, with a shelf balcony, was really well laid out, spacious...plenty of storage for 36 days, yes ladies I take 4 huge suitcases! everything fit..with room to spare. The bathroom equally spacious with storage under and a big mirrored cabinet storage area...2 sinks...shower over tub was at first a bit weird but I figured it out after a few days. The only dumb thing was the placement of the room safe, had to get on all fours to get into it...lucky for me I can still do that! Our suite was kept spotless and well stocked by our darling Lusel from South Africa. We had breakfast in our suite most mornings, laid out very nice on the big table with ajustable height, and removed promptly always with a call to see if all was good!

To be perfectly honest I was very apprehensive about sailing on such a little ship for 36 days, but we are so glad we did, we just loved it because of the size, 200 passengers, you meet people easier, the crew got to know you and greet youn by name...and after 36 days there were hugs among the passengers and crew....we could have stayed on another 36 days.

Don't get me stared about the food. Please don't go there with the bread sticks, one is never enough Kurt did some amazing dishes, vension, veal beef wellington...scallops and other fish dishes..desserts to pretty to eat,and wonderful cheese plates. The best burgers afloat and french fries. The wine flowed no question, once the staffed discovered what you liked it was there ready for you! An the Club pre dinner cocktails an hor'dourves different each night...I loved the sausages in puff pastry! Only one complaint in food was the horrid coffee...the coffee machines need replacing!

218 balcony, shelf, very very quiet, no squeaks, great location, but the ship is so small location is not an issue. Seas were extremely calm with no motion at all!
