Sail Date: Jan 2018
Cabin: Veranda Suite

We've cruised with Silversea about a dozen times. Unfortunately, this one is at the bottom of the ranking list.

We convinced another couple to join us. For three days after reporting it, they endured a fire alarm that went off several times a day and water leaking through a ceiling light fixture. I finally intervened and helped get them moved to another suite. I made it very clear Silversea had embarrassed me as well as themselves. They don't seem to care. To be fair, some compensation was made but too little, too late.

That same friend was taken to task (discreetly) for wearing bermuda shorts at an on-deck venue after sunset. This, despite a group of four sitting at the bar similarly dressed (to whom nothing was said) and the specific admonition in the daily "Chronicle" that shorts were not permitted within indoor venues. I doubt my friends will sail with Silversea again.

Cabin Review

Veranda Suite

Cabin VR

Clean, well kept but old, very noisy with well worn furniture.

Port Reviews

Colon (Cristobal)

Run down and from everything I read, dangerous. We boarded the ship and stayed there.

Key West

Quite interesting. Toured Roosevelt's compound in the old navy yard. Had never heard of his summer white house there. Well run tour. Went through Hemingway's house. Also very interesting but they put too many people on one tour. The group could barely fit in most rooms. Good history lessons.
