We truly expected a lot more from a Luxury cruise line. The cruise itself was nicely decorated..all beige, but the glamour that you see on other cruise lines for half the price was not there to be found. Forget about a grand lobby!. The entertainment was poor. The show - three ladies and three gentleman- had great voices, but my goodness, they were soo fake, we only went to the first show and never went back again, which was the case of others as well. The casino area is as small as a bedroom, I understand that the cruise only allows 600 guest, but no more than 20 people could fit on that casino. The nightclub with a DJ..dear Lord! He sure knows how to clean a club..empty! after a few songs everyone left! Even thought the average age is 70's, he played music for teenagers. WE all told him to change the beat, I even went as far as to give him a list of great dancing songs -I'm a dancer and love a great time!- but his repertoire was very poor. He was not paying attention at the age of the audience, that even though they were in the late 60's and much older, they all wanted a great time, but not jumping up and down on the dance floor! The cruise had a party one night around the pool - it was the night of the eclipse- and the party was very good! everyone was having a great time! The common areas were very nice, the pool area was great, big and ample space for everyone, but again, the trio that played in the afternoons was horrible. We had to let them know our hearts were still beating, to stop playing funeral music.. and they did!!! everyone applauded and we all had a better time. The restaurants... so, so. They have a hibachi, which we didn't try, we didn't want to come out smelling like food, they have a Japanese restaurant, a bit spicy, but ok. The restaurant called Silver Notes, have a very small menu, they don't offer salad, and only two choices of dessert...but they have a great piano player and a great singer! The Atlantide restaurant, was the biggest and with better choices, but when you are on a cruise for 12 days, and have to eat on those restaurants at least 10 of those days, you expect a change in the menu at least once. We didn't participated on the shore excursions, we arranged those on our own. Embarkation and disembarkation was great, very smooth and orderly. The cabin was the best..and I'm leaving it for last! We had the Grand Suite, and OMG! what a beauty,! with LR, DR and 1.5 bathrooms. The bedroom was huge, with make up area, big closets and ample bathroom. The balcony, wrapped around was the best view coming into every port. Our butler was a 5 star! He was always there for us when we needed him and he went out of his way to always keep us informed of everything and provided our room with our needs. Would we travel with Silverseas again?...Must likely NOT. It has even killed our desired to travel on another cruise period.

Expected more of a Luxury cruiseline
