Wanted to try out this newest addition to the Silversea fleet. Had been past cruisers with them for many years (totalling 80+ seadays). Wanted a leisurely cruise in somewhere relatively close to home and offering warmth and sunshine. This cruise fit the bill. Very impressed with the suite assigned and found the public areas of the ship warm and welcoming. The embarkation was not as smooth as one would expect of a luxury small ship. After long flights to embarkation port, we did not appreciate the wait on shore for an extra 30 minutes because the ship chose to have a drill at that time of day. Dining was mostly good except for our experience at La Dame ( extra cost but below average quality of food). The Hot Rocks at the Grill continue their success with this concept and was a very good alternate dining venue for us. Dinner at the Terrazza was good but rather limited by an unchanging menu and generally not as satisfying as per our memory. Day time, the Terrazza was the go to meal venue for the majority. Pool was very good size and poolside had lots of space for loungers as well as comfortable poolside furniture. Several other outside areas on decks 8 and 9 for those who were inclined to avoid the poolside space. Forward observation lounge on Deck 11 was very small in comparison to other ships. Ships library was extremely limited and was an area that could be improved upon. No area where one could do a jigsaw puzzle during the voyage (Seabourn square concept). In terms of entertainment, the Silversea Singers all had good voices and were talented. We were grateful that the sound amplification was well managed and not excessive. Overall, a very enjoyable cruise and we would do more Silversea if it were on the Muse or the upcoming new sister ship.

Cabin Review

Superior Verandah Suite
Cabin SV 734
One cannot want for anything more from this superior verandah cabin. Very spacious with more than ample storage in terms of walk in closets and drawers. Sizable bathroom with separate bath and shower. Only single sink but not a significant negative. Verandah good size with unobstructed views. wide screen TV behind two mirrors in cabin. Butler service attentive and cabin kept immaculately clean by an equally attentive cabin stewardess.
Best in category when compared to other luxury competitor lines.
