Silver Muse Cruise Review by alohalennie

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jan 2018
  • Destination: South America
  • Cabin Type: Silver Suite 1

We chose this cruise because of the S. American itinerary and because the Muse was a new ship.We were concerned about the previous negative reviews we had read related to dining and formal nights and we were pleased to see that these items were not an issue.

We never had a problem getting a reservation in any of the restaurants even though we changed many of our original reservations. There were 3 "formal " nights but over half of the men wore suits instead of more formal attire.

Service was very impressive throughout the ship.It was nice having premium bar service included in the cruise package and the no tipping policy was appreciated.

Public spaces were more than adequate and at times we felt like the ship was half empty, even though it was nearly full.

We pre booked La Dame for 3 nights but after our first night there, cancelled our other 2 reservations. The service was impeccable but the food did not warrant a $120 surcharge.

The lamb was overcooked and underwhelmed. Great wine selection however!

Atlantide was probably our favorite restaurant and offered a good selection of entrees throughout the cruise.

La Tarazza was typical cruise buffet fare. Breakfast was very good and you could order egg dishes alacarte from waitstaff, without needing to go through buffet line.

There were few hot lunch entrees compared to our previous experiences on other lines. Desserts were beautiful to look at but failed the taste test.

Disembarkation in Buenos Aires was unorganized and one of our worst disembarkation experiences ever!

Bottom Line: Good ship but not worth the premium prices.

I doubt that we will sail with Silverseas again.

Cabin Review

Silver Suite 1
Cabin S1 1112

Cabin was adequate but not impressive. There was inadequate storage in the main cabin and very few drawers to place personal articles.There were absolutely NO drawers in the closets, and just four shelves to hold shoes,underware, and all the other small items one needs while cruising.

The sliding doors separating the bedroom from main salon had no locking mechanism so doors slid back and forth when ship experienced active seas. It would have been nice to have had a second sofa or love seat where your partner could recline while reading or watching a movie. One had to use the bed instead or bring in a deck lounge chair into main cabin to recline if partner was using the sofa.

Both of us caught food borne viruses or food poisoning and had to be quarintined in our cabin for a few days. Medical team was exceptional but we sure wished that we had not needed to use them.
