Additional details

Sail Date: Jan 2018
Cabin: Veranda Suite

By comparison with 4.5 company such as Oceania and 4 star cruise company such as Princess or Holland, we do not consider silversea as a 5 Star cruising for the following reasons;

- at least 50% of the staff are not easy to approach, they are not smiling and it looks like we disturb them

- the butler of our room was not proactive and the few request we made got poor reception

Cabin Review

Veranda Suite

Even though it is quite a large cabin the configuration does not optimize the space. It is narrow to circulate in front of the bed. There is no night light in the bathroom to help circulate during night. A small flashlight is supplied but it does not operate well ans it is not convenient.

Port Reviews

Port Elizabeth

Nothing to see in this town except the city hall

Richards Bay

The port as such is a very ugly and dirty and it takes about 15 minutes by bus to exit this huge industrial port. However the country surrounding the city is beautiful

Cape Town

Nice welcom at the embarkation and the cruise terminal is clean
