Sail Date: Jan 2018
Cabin: Veranda Suite

The ship was shabby- worn out dirty carpets, grubby and dirty upholstery in the public rooms. The staff were obviously demoralised and indifferent to the passengers.

The worst feature was Silver Seas arrogance in taking us to horrible ports - 2 days in Richards Bay - a coal export port in South Africa. Fine if you enjoy coal dust with your meals on deck.

Second class entertainers and a Cruise Director who seemed bored and was just going through his usual patter.
