OK, but disappointed

Silver Spirit Cruise Review by antond

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2018
  • Destination: the Baltic Sea
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Veranda Suite

We wanted to cruise the Baltic in August 2018 and looked for the most luxurious line.

To start on a positive note, the suites were beautiful, clean and spacious. TV programming, including movies was excellent.

Internet was fair, but only after purchasing the 'premium' version at some $ 150, the type of nickel-and-diming that we did not expect.

Shore excursions were good, but very expensive.

The cabins of most of our group members were very noisy and shaking, especially when the ship was moving. This is something we never experienced before (and we are seasoned cruise guests). This did impact our sleep negatively..

The handicapped facilities were so-so, no handrails on toilet.

Food.. La Terrazza was fine, although the 'free' red wine was disappointing

Spaccanapoli.. If we would come across pizza like that, we would walk away. Same for the burgers at the grill. Horrible.

Indochine was fine, and so was Seishin ($ 40 per person additional)

Also, frequently, restaurants were not able to seat us (we were a party of 12). At Seabourn, this never happened.

Changes to menu items were usually not possible, let alone waiting staff remembering what guests liked (like, again, at Seabourn)

Our cruise with Silversea was satisfactory, but not the best value for money. We will not return.
