Having recently cruised on Oceania we were expecting high quality food on Silver Spirit- regrettably that was not the case. Dinner service was extremely slow and food quality was mediocre at best. Food preparation was marginal (uncooked meat...) Only Buffet service was breakfast and the specialty restaurants that we tried were unimpressive. The Butler service is a mislabeling - cabin steward was polite but had been working on SIlversea only a couple of months. In general the entire service staff was good but they did not have much to work with. We understood that Silversea headquarters had revamped the entire restaurant service and obviously reduced the food quality. We shared dinner with several dedicated Silversea passengers who were very disappointed and are likely to avoid this line. To repeat, the service staff was attentive but obviously worked with the owners guidance. We booked this pricey cruise with high expectations, but were truly disappointed. We found that free wine and alcohol was of very marginal value to us. Having one showtime only was disappointing - many of the older people (like we) would have preferred an earlier showtime - to follow an earlier dinner.

Underwhelming Food

Cabin Review

Cabin
Suite with balcony was average. TV was disappointing -- small screen embedded in a mirror - very dated.
