We chose this cruise because it was the only luxury line we hadn't sailed on after many Seabourn cruises, and had read about a major refurbishment. Wrong. The only refurbishment was some common area carpets and flooring. The cabins (veranda suite) are just decrepit...old, dirty carpets and upholstery.. and look like nothing's been done since its launch in 1995. Hallway carpets are stained, dining room is ancient, reception area and common areas are devoid of art and ornamentation. Miniscule gym with Venetian blinds that don't close. Food is barely mediocre... steaks were not chewable, fatty lamb chops, overcooked fish..even bread was awful. And what's an iced cappuccino? At dinner, pool grill provides diners with gimmicky hot lava stone to self-cook steaks or fish, which leaves guests covered with smoke and grease. No entertainment worthy of any note. Silversea should be ashamed of sailing this barge and marketing it as luxury. Ship should be scuttled.

Cabin Review

Veranda Suite

Cabin VR

Cabins look original (1995) and small.. dont be fooled by the description "suite".... there's nothing suite about it. Old, stained carpet and upholstery. Veranda is tiny.
