Classic Luxury Ship...but needs a makeover

Silver Wind Cruise Review by Mertens486

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2017
  • Destination: the Baltic Sea
  • Cabin Type: Midship Veranda Suite

We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise. The cruise went from good to excellent around day 6. The itinerary was fun and the host cities – especially Killybegs and Greenock welcomed us warmly even if the weather didn’t always cooperate. Most important, the many employees that together made the cruise a great experience are the single biggest reason for Silversea success. Enthusiastic and eager to make their guests comfortable and feel welcome.

That said, Silver Wind is looking tired and many of the amenities that are expected for a luxury experience are lacking. The in-room entertainment system is antiquated and not functional. When you want to escape and relax in your room, the old TV with limited features does not enhance your experience. It is one of the least attractive features on the ship. The cabin was spacious and the bathroom included a tub and shower - very good. Unfortunately, there was a lingering odor due to a poor ventilation system. You get the idea.

Cabin Review

Midship Veranda Suite
Cabin DV 518

Ship is due for an overhaul in 2018. Book your cruise after the refreshing is finished. Many little things went wrong in our cabin including a water leak and a persistent sewer odor.
