Sail Date: Sep 2017
Cabin: Veranda Suite

We chose this cruise because of the less-traveled itinerary--the opportunity to see a few places the typical passenger wouldn't see, especially Dutch Harbor/Unalaska and Kamchatska. The length (14 days) was also attractive to us, and Silversea does a great job of providing excellent activities for the days at sea. I took bridge lessons and sharpened my game playing with other very experienced players. The bridge director was delightful and worked very hard to make sure the classes and games were worthwhile and organized. I would miss this if it wasn't provided on other longer cruises with multiple days at sea.

I was so pleased to find dance instructors and having the opportunity to refresh my skills in the classes and then have several evenings to partner with the instructors on the dance floor. They were terrific hosts for the singles on the ship as well. Again, a must for longer cruises and I know the single passengers were very happy to have these two gracious gentlemen to accompany them in the evening and at events.

Love the formal evenings! My husband loves putting on his tux and we plan ahead for those evenings with special attire and enjoy meeting the captain and crew and getting to know other passengers on the ship. With a few exceptions, everyone seemed to enjoy dressing for the occasions and brought their best elegant manners with them!

Lovely as always. Since we were traveling in the northern regions, we didn't expect to get much use of the veranda, but we did actually use it more than we tought we would. The full-length wide window gives a great view even if we aren't outside too. The bathroom is lovely (especially having the separate tub and shower). Always found it very clean and well-appointed. My husband loves having his favorite brands of scotch and bourbon in the room, although he makes good use of and makes good friends with the host in The Bar! Had breakfast and dinner in our room a few times and it is pleasant to sit in the room with our nice table and view.
