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.
Food quality was especially poor more like a cross channel ferry than a 5 star lux ship.
Entertainment was dire.
Staff acted like it was the end of term...which it was for many of them.
Needless to say its back to Oceania and we will never trust Silverseas again.
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
