Silver Whisper Cruise Review by boxcaja

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2017
  • Destination: the Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Veranda Suite

We hate to fly, so this cruise attracted us because we could drive to NY and avoid one flight. Sailing out of NY Harbor at sunset is an incomparable experience. Destinations were well chosen and sailing was quite smooth - little motion. Food quality was excellent and service above average. Selection of house wines and premium wines was very good. Bar service excellent. We spent 3-4 days at sea, and wished there have been better structured meet & mingle events at the beginning so we could bond with other couples for the remainder of the cruise.

Biggest downer was very limited TV, nothing but news channels and ESPN - no movies and the DVD's in the library were awful. Public Rooms and Restaurants nicely decorated & appointed. The Gym was barely adequate and some equipment wasn't working.

We only used tender service at one destination (St. Barts) it would have been nice to have published schedule of Tender departures. (We missed opportunity to dine ashore because we arrived too late for the tender.)

Cabin Review

Veranda Suite
Cabin V3 643

Typical Silversea Verandah Suite. Comfortable & well-appointed. Butler average, room attendant above average. Nice bed and walk-in shower a definite plus. Television was poor, limited channels, no movies (and DVD library needs improvement). No IPod docker and we had to wait 4 days until (in Hamilton Bermuda) we could buy an MP3 cable connector. WiFi available in room for 1hr/day. Had to pay $25/day for more...Why is this necessary from an all-inclusive luxury cruise??
