Silver Spirit Cruise Review by rwyeager

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2015
  • Destination: Transatlantic

Simply put: Way over priced for the value received. The service was OUTSTANDING. The wait staff and bar staff were superior. The food was mediocre and too eclectic for our taste. Italian offerings were named right but over-presented. It is not a ship to trans-Atlantic on. Sea days were boring. The weather did not cooperate. We were disappointed that there was no "Plan B" for missing the Azores, instead we endured 8 days at sea.

The stateroom personnel, Butler, maid and attendant were most supportive during our illness and catered to our every whim.

THE ENTERTAINMENT WAS THE MOST SPECTACULAR WE HAVE WITNESSED ON ANY SMALL SHIP. Production numbers rival the best we have seen on any cruise. The Voices of Silversea were a treasure to see and hear. They would be the primary reason we would ever return to Silversea.

The "Suite" was overstated in the brochure and differed very little from the mini-suites on Princess.

My wife traveled with a Power Chair. Despite my coordination with Silversea, they were not prepared or adaptable to moving the chair on and off the ship except at embarkation and dis-embarkation. Off deck 5 they had a ramp but never offered to put it in place for us to go ashore. Off deck 3, the ramp was severely ridged and challenged even the ship personnel to move the chair

Cabin Review

Cabin VS 528

Very nice but not much different from a mini-suite on Princess

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


While Hamilton is nice, it is just another island city with minimal interest to us as travelers.

Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

Nice jumping off point.
