Chose from Tower Bridge so no flying. Excellent enbarkation but waiting staff organisation disorganised for first few days. When we left at 6am no hot drinks available. 3 days into the 14days the restaurant had run out of Pouilly Fume, Sauvignon blanc and Pinot Grigrio. Plenty of other wines but not to our taste, luckilly plenty of champers. Cabin staff excellent and cabins good. Ship seems a bit tired and old fashioned. Normally we would have expected short talks on next port of call, history things to see and how to get about on your own. Sadly lacking. This our second cruise on this ship, the first was excellent but this not so good and we would think carefully before using Silversea again - it all depends on destinations . Having said that we had an enjoyable time with excellent food. There was a cruise director on the ship but I have no real idea what he did apart from telling us the gang plank was down, what time to get back. Oh he ran a trivial pursuit quiz eack afternoon. One last thing, the on board lectures about world politics were very good. Reading through the above I seem a bit negative but our previous cruise on Silver Wind was so good so maybe this was a glitch.

Good, Butler excellent. We were on the top deck and there was noise from scraping deck chairs from above but we are early risers so OK
