Sail Date: Dec 2017
Cabin: Superior Verandah Suite

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.

Cabin Review

Superior Verandah Suite

Cabin SV

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.

Port Reviews

Curacao

Interesting walk around the port area for the atmosphere from the colorful houses, local produce markets, fish vendors from their boats, Christmas atmosphere from the town

Bonaire

In port on a Sunday. Limited opening of stores

Samana and Cayo Levantado

Nothing but encounters with locals trying to sell tours and souvenirs as you walk along a not too attractive promenade towards town.

Grand Turk

Limited area to explore without taking excursion.

Sitting by the beach at pier was only viable alternative to an excursion

Key West

Very commercialized and tourist orientated.
