THE ULTIMATE IN CRUISE LUXURY: Silver Shadow Cruise Review by RICHARD SANDLER
Overall Member Rating
THE ULTIMATE IN CRUISE LUXURY
Destination: Mexican Riviera
Embarkation: Los Angeles
Dining, is as you would expect, excellent. We particularly l;iked the speciality Champagne restaurant and the More lunch and breakfast buffets, which are set up in a dining room with your own table, not the usual scramble at poolside buffets. You could always stay on deck and have a hamburger or hot dog if you wished.
The service, as you would expect, was faultless. Friendly without being obsequious from The Captain down the humblest cleaner everything was done with a smile. The benefit of a smaller ship is that you get to meet people. Most of our fellow guests were well educated and travelled Americans, they made for excellent company as did the few fellow Brits aboard. The entertainment was not good.The shows were, quite frankly, mediocre and apart from a good US singer would not have been permitted in a holiday camp. We really didn't mind as you go on a Silversea cruise for good company, good food and the whole expewrience. The less said about the itinerary the better. We are now hooked on Silversea and have already booked another cruise for later this year. Less
Cabin review: VIS
We had a Vista Suite. It was excellent. Whoever designed this suite is a gewnius, it utilised its space skillfully and would not have been out of place in a 5 star hotel
