Additional details

Sail Date: Feb 2018
Cabin: Veranda Suite

After reading earlier reviews we specifically asked Silverseas Uk for reassurance that this ship was indeed up to scratch, they said yes we would receive the normal 5 star luxury cruise experience..... basically they didn't tell the truth as it was anything but.

Our $1000 a night suite had worn out soft furnishings and a heavily stained carpet that we avoided walking on with bare feet, the public room soft furnings were also worn and drab, a bit like a care home lounge.

The menu choice was restricted to items that had not run out as they reduced stock pre refit which is where the ship will spend the rest of Feb 2018 in a dry dock....they even started to dismantle the ship days before we disembarked....art was removed leaving near bare bulkheads throughout the ship.

Well designed but soft furnishings not up to scratch, shame on you silverseas for ignoring the obvious.

just another big port city with hardly anything of note to see

A brilliant day visiting the newish Grand Mosque and shopping
