  3. Silver Muse
Past experiences were very good on The Wind, Spirit, and Silver Galapagos. The dining service on the Muse was deplorable. The food was inedible (we even lost weight on this cruise). Having to make reservations was a chore and the Japanese specialty restaurant was so poor, we felt scammed at $60 per person. The men having to wear a jacket while dining alfresco in Italy during the summer is punishing. The dining offered during the excursions was equally deplorable. Pretty certain the veal was actually foal during the Slovenia excursion. Two days in Kofu Greece is two too many, and one day for Rome is two too short. Overall, the ship is too big to do it the way a smaller ship does and not big enough to do it the way a larger ship does. Quality food sourcing and preparation is a lot easier for 200 guests, than 600. Gym is way too small; not enough equipment for 600 guests. Casino too small not enough gaming fir 600 guests. Shops on board are too big and stocked with lower end products. Would serve them well to have a Bulgari Boutique, after all, they serve their bath products and have a captive audience. Seems like a wasted opportunity for Bulgari. Overpriced, under delivered.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Verandah Suite
Cabin DV 810
Mirrored Televisions difficult to use and difficult to see.
Beds too small.
Ships construction and sizes makes it very noisy.
The whole ship shakes each time the tender docks and many kids running in halls sounds like a stampede.
Deck 8 Suite Cabins
