Why? Brand name. Convenient timing. Confidence in performance based on priorSilversea cruise. Itinerary. Travelled at our own expense from FL to San Juan for convenience. Silversea lived up to its reputation. The ship is lovely, comfortable, and well maintained for an older ship. We had a wonderful time. The dining was excellent, providing many delicious options served efficiently and carefully by a very well trained, polite and pleasant staff in The Restaurant and Terrazza. We did feel occasionally rushed at Terrazza lunch when we had to eat close to closing time based on a late land excursion. Our experience at La Dame was disappointing. The service was fine, but our dinners were average. The land excursions were well done and managed. Some more interesting and fun of course. We knew about the hurricane damage, but were saddened to see the actual destruction of homes, buildings and landscape. However,we wanted too see the islands, especially having visited Tortola many times prior.

Cabin Review

Owner's Suite 1
Cabin O1 734
Size of cabin very good. Very comfortable. Clean, well maintained. Super service by Butler and assistant. So helpful and obliging. We had a great time.
Three suggestions that I think should be available in premium service and at your price:
-a king size bed
-updated bathroom facility including a roomy stall shower. A bath tub with wand shower on the ocean is difficult to manage plus exiting over high tub sides.
-7th floor location unfortunately located under pool area with furniture constantly being dragged across the upper deck. a lot of foot traffic noise as well.
