Sail Date: Sep 2013
Cabin:

A group of 260 young Latin American sales agents created a nightmare environment for us on Silver Spirit. Loud and boisterous by nature, their rowdy revelry turned the ship into a floating fiesta.

From 17 South American countries, their company, Herbalife, had treated the mainly 25 to 40 year olds to an all- expenses paid luxury cruise which they were determined to enjoy to the full. Unfortunately for the independent guests this meant that instead of the “ultra luxury cruise and relaxed elegance with each guest joining a sophisticated onboard community” as suggested in the brochure, we endured a week which was memorable for all the wrong reasons.

Silver Spirit is beautiful and is tastefully furnished. Suites and bathrooms are very spacious and the attentive and friendly crew go out of their way to help. Quite unexpectedly on one occasion our cabin steward had checked what time we would return from an excursion and had prepared a bubble bath for us. The food in the buffet and the restaurant was good, and the entertainment provided by five classically trained singers was to our taste. Unfortunately, due to the way in which some of the Herbalife group impacted on the atmosphere and ambience of the ship we were unable to fully appreciate and enjoy our surroundings.

Cabin Review

Spacious and well appointed cabin with full size bath and separate shower. Bulgari toiletries and Laura Tonatto room fragrance. Complimentary drinks in fridge. Walk in wardrobe. Spacious balcony.
