Cruise from Fort Lauderdale through Panama Canal and down to Santiago, Chile. Great travelling through Panama Canal for first time. Friendly efficient crew. Service always fast and courteous. Good food with wide range of restaurants, some require booking, others open seating. Menus changed after about a week. Some dishes indicative of areas we visited. We went to La Dame (signature restaurant) extra US$60 each - excellent, but once was enough. We had no trouble regarding attire for dinner, but heard some guests had been sent back to get jackets. Cabin spacious (1010 Silver suite), well presented and maintained. Evening Shows (singers, dancers) were at 10 pm at start of cruise. When offered at 6:15 much better attendance. Daily Chronicles arrived about 6pm at night detailing activities for next day. Not much to do on "At Sea" days. In addition to guest lecture (1 or 2) there were small groups to learn bridge or Spanish. TV's around decks showed position of all Silversea vessels. Would have liked to have more details of our vessels progress - more detailed map with current position, weather, distances to next port etc. Ports - mostly commercial so need shuttle to port entrance and not enough visited on this cruise (long distances). Excursions - all extra charge and not much offered. This may be partly due to it being developing countries. Cozumel -drive around island. Belize - Laminai Temple with Mayan ruins worth doing but involved over an hour each way in open top motor boats. Roatan Island - good snorkelling, but beach (Big French Key) was pretty basic - set up for daily visitors - beach lounges and lunch. Manta, Ecuador - visit to Wildlife Park was basic. Many tours seemed geared to sell local products. Lima - hired private car for all day excursion - this was worth while as visited sites we wanted. In Arica, northern Chile we just wandered around town, museum, pleasant visit. Disembarked at Valparaiso and did tour to Casablanca Valley wineries before drop off at airport about 4pm. Some had long wait till flight.
