  3. Silver Wind
I thought it might be helpful to compare the 2 as we were on the Seaborne Sojourn last summer. Ship/cabin Sojourn is newer ship with a contemporary understated elegance. It remained me of a Four Seasons hotel. Silver Wind is an older somewhat dated ship. It was refurbished in 2013 but I am not sure what t they did. There was no movie streaming in the room but a DVD library, kind of like going to Blockbuster 10 years ago The Sojourn cabin was slightly larger than Silver Wind and had a better floor plan. Silver Wind cabin furniture was a little congested. The big difference was the bathroom. Sojourn was twice the size with a separate bath and shower and 2 sinks which made my wife very happy. Silver Sea combo shower/tub with 1 sink. Food We took a tour of the Sojourn galley and met the head chef. The emphasis was on fresh. The chef went to the market each day at the port and bought fresh produce, fruit, eat a seafood from the local market. It showed in the quality with meals being good or great. The Silver Wind seafood and meat were all frozen thus the food was mediocre ranging from good to awful What make this partially offensive is Silver Sea is owned by an Italian family where excellent fresh food is a part of the culture Staff/service Both excellent getting most of what you wanted promptly. The difference is the Sojourn staff seemed to be enjoying themselves and we noticed some of the Sea Wind staff seemed to want to be somewhere else and were just going through the motions The Silver Wind was actually more expansive so the value was heavily tilled toward Sojourn

I thought it might be helpful to compare the 2 as we were on the Seaborne Sojourn last summer.

Ship/cabin

Sojourn is newer ship with a contemporary understated elegance. It remained me of a Four Seasons hotel. Silver Wind is an older somewhat dated ship. It was refurbished in 2013 but I am not sure what t they did. There was no movie streaming in the room but a DVD library, kind of like going to Blockbuster 10 years ago

The Sojourn cabin was slightly larger than Silver Wind and had a better floor plan. Silver Wind cabin furniture was a little congested. The big difference was the bathroom. Sojourn was twice the size with a separate bath and shower and 2 sinks which made my wife very happy. Silver Sea combo shower/tub with 1 sink.

Food

We took a tour of the Sojourn galley and met the head chef. The emphasis was on fresh. The chef went to the market each day at the port and bought fresh produce, fruit, eat a seafood from the local market. It showed in the quality with meals being good or great.

Staff/service

Both excellent getting most of what you wanted promptly. The difference is the Sojourn staff seemed to be enjoying themselves and we noticed some of the Sea Wind staff seemed to want to be somewhere else and were just going through the motions

The Silver Wind was actually more expansive so the value was heavily tilled toward Sojourn
