  3. Silver Muse
We chose Silversea some 18 months ago, because we have cruised with Regent and Seabourn and wanted to make a comparison. Silver Muse was a perfect choice because of the destination and timing. The "new ship" factor also helped! We traveled to Barbados independently on the day before we embarked the ship. We have been to Barbados many times, and our stay was entirely in our hotel. Embarkation was smooth on the following day, and we were aboard and having lunch quickly. Our stateroom was ready at around 2pm, and our luggage was delivered at the same time, including the suitcase that we had sent ahead using the Silversea service. Our stateroom was on Deck 8 midships, and was superb. Our butler Anu made himself known quickly, and was very attentive throughout the cruise. We loved the decor on board, as modern and minimalist suits us. We found the dining venues to be excellent and the service in all areas of the ship was excellent. We know the Caribbean quite well, and liked the islands visited. We always enjoy going to Bequia and the Dutch Antilles were a lovely surprise. We remained on board at some venues, as we had been before and were playing bridge at the time. Overall a fabulous experience, we will travel with Silversea again having booked a future cruise while on board.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Verandah Suite
Cabin DV 846
The stateroom was very comfortable, with a large balcony including comfortable furniture. The bathroom was a good size and includes a full size bath as well as a walk in shower, which we found to be a good combination.
The bad was very comfortable and the information system shown on two TVs was all encompassing and user friendly.
