Sail Date: May 2018
Cabin: Deluxe Veranda Suite

After 3 consecutive cruises on Regent, I was recommended Silversea because it was good and very smoking friendly. It really is very smoking friendly.

The booking was a breeze with Mr Andrew Ironstone making my life easy. Best ever.

The ship is OK, I especially like the architecture having all the cabins in the front and venues in the back of the ship. It is very smart and makes the cabins very quiet. It was the quietest cabin I ever had in a cruise. The cabin was OK with good size and a nice bathroom. Nothing special. The butler service was poor.

Port Reviews

Lisbon

We stayed 5 days pre-cruise in Lisbon. Great city, beautiful, great food, great people, safe.

Porto (Leixoes)

We stayed 4 days pre-cruise in Porto. Fantastic stay. Everything perfect.

La Coruna

Took a train to Santiago, 28 minutes to get there. Fantastic place, magical. We had lunch there and had enough time to visit A Coruna. Very nice port. Great food.

Bilbao

Where the money is. Great city, great food, great shopping. The old city is also a good visit. We enjoyed it very much.

Bordeaux

One of my favorite cities in the hole world, along with Porto, Honfleur and Napoli. The first day we took a private driver to visit the Medoc. Plinio Oliveira, highly recommended. Great lunch in Saint-Julien on the restaurant called Le Saint Julien drinking Chateau Lagrange Gran Cru Classe de Saint-Julien. The closest thing to being in paradise. Then nice diner in Bordeaux saving us from the terrible food on the ship. Second day for shopping and a great lunch at the Grand Cafe with a bottle of Paullac. Excellent port.

Saint-Malo

Beautiful port, took the mini-train, walked the whole wall and the streets of the city. Excellent lunch with Champagne rose and lobsters. Loved it.

St. Peter Port (Guernsey)

Nothing there, short stop, useless.

Honfleur

Great port. Enchanting place. Love it. Would have been better in a Saturday because of the street market with the local products but anyways it was great. Walked the hole thing, had a REAL orange juice in the morning and a great lunch with great wine in the afternoon. Excellent experience.
