Looking for a bit of luxury we saw advertised Silverseas 6 star cruising, sadly it failed to deliver in many areas. We paid a 1000 a day inclusive looking for the bit extra and, like many other passengers, were extremly disappointed. Italian ship with multi cultural crew who had limited English language skills. Our cabin was a Veranda suite...quite small...outdated furniture, bathroom needed a make over....a good comfortable bed though. Food was very average, strangely no wine list at meal times...all a question of WHITE or RED sir and pot luck!
We were told by the Head wine waiter , in broken english, "that as we are changing our wines every 4 to 5 years we are not printing a list"!!!
Arrived on board at 5.00pm having been held up because the streets of London closed for a cycle event, having left home at 1.30pm.....tea finished at 5.00pm no room service ss crew were due to have safety drill....no bowl of fruit in the room ....butler said " It comes later" so nothing to eat until 7.00pm.Many other passengers like us.....we were not very happy!
