Silver Muse Cruise Review by jaffeh
- Sail Date: July 2017
- Destination: Mediterranean
The decision to spread the dining between multiple restaurants was effective in making the ship appear less large, but it also was a barrier to meeting people & forming new friendships. The reservation system was confusing & cumbersome, as was having different dress codes for each place.
The exercise facility is entirely too small & has average equipment.
The need to pre-order certain types of alcoholic beverages before starting the cruise or not to have them be available is also not well done. We were not used to a high-end hospitality business telling us that they could not get us what we wanted.
We loved many aspects of the cruise, but we would not sail on this ship again.

We were in Naples, because the sea was too rough to drop anchor off of Sorrento. We were there 2 days, so we got to do the ship's version of the Amalfi Coast. Unfortunately, this turned out to be a drive to Positano, which is wonderful, but we did NOT see much of the Amalfi drive before going to lunch (only about a third of it.) Would have preferred a quick lunch & doing the real drive!
Taormina (Messina)beautiful island with many interesting sights.View All 417 Taormina (Messina) Cruise Port Reviews
