Silversea is one of the premier cruise lines BUT they have put their bottom line before their sterling reputation.
Every document relating to Wi-Fi states "Complementary Wi Fi Throughout The Ship". Then you get on the ship and find out its limited to one free hour per person per day. Totally misleading and unacceptable.
Also they have a charity that they run that I am sure is a wonderful organization BUT passengers get a letter saying they will be charged a dollar per day per passenger unless they opt out. Shame on Silversea. Had it been "opt in" we probably would have made the donation but when they made it "opt out" we did. Instead Silversea should make the donation on our behalf using some of the money that we spent to be on their ship.
To the top management of Silversea you should know these matters tarnish your sterling reputation.
Seishin restaurant is okay if you are unfamiliar with Japanese cuisine but if you can get it at home, it's nothing special. Stars is a good concept, small plates, very good food. LaTerrasa is a good standby for all three meals. Only went to The Restaurant on the first night. The outdoors grill is nice for an informal lunch or dinner.
Entertainment was fine. This cruise had a special opera program on two nights with performers who came on for just a few days. It was a nice treat.
Cruise Director, Moss Hills is superb. He really keeps everyone at the top of their game and is well respected by both crew and passengers.
Great cabin. Excellent bed, very good service. Very large bathroom with great shower. A bathtub for anyone who prefers that route.
Interesting itinerary, especially Rouen, Bilbao, La Corunna, and of course Lisbon.
