Monte Carlo to Istanbul

Sail Date: June 2013
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Other
This cruise was a final chance to find the right cruise line, one that was luxury but had a great group of people with a mix of ages. We had experienced large ships previously and so settled on the Silver Spirit which had a maximum of 550 passengers.

From the time we embarked to disembarkation the staff on the ship we remarkable, the food was great, the all inclusive fare worked well. Little touches such as speciality coffee, having breakfast on the balcony, and a very attentive butler made this trip first class.

All of the restaurants were good, but we found Le Champagne had quality food and good service but disappointed in the menu selections, our favourite was Seishin Restaurant which we frequented at lunchtime as well.

Wine selection was reasonable and we enjoyed a number of wines we would not have chosen ourselves.

The room was as advertised, large and very comfortable...the only issue being the distance between the end of the bed and the More dressing table. This had been raised by other reviews but it wasn't a major problem, and we wouldn't have enjoyed a shortened bed.

The smoking policy and areas were well managed, and it was not an issue for us during the cruise.

Overall a great experience, and we booked on board for another back to back 18 day cruise for next year. Less

Cabin review: VS610

great balcony and a good size cabin. The bathroom worked, the separate shower was excellent, interactive media system provided the ability to chill out in the room as well as reviewing the account or watching the news.For ports where we tendered the anchor was loud for 3-5 minutes but if you are an early riser it is not going to be an issue. My partner slept through this so it should not disturb your enjoyment of the cruise.All cabins are away from the entertainment areas so all ail will be quiet.
