Before going on this cruise, I read several negative reviews that made me quite nervous. We had originally chosen silversea due to reviews of excellent service and dining. Then we read the reviews criticizing just those aspects. Well, it turned out our original hope was fully realized. The service was excellent and the food was outstanding.

We enjoy leisurely dining which is the style most available in the evenings when the buffet disappears; some may have felt it was too slow. However, after seeing how hard people tried to please us, I think if we had asked to have courses brought more quickly, they would have done so. The menu was varied each evening, and the ship has an "all day dining" menu that can be ordered in any restaurant venue if the daily choices don't appeal. This is also the way to get meals when restaurants are closed; the order will be served in your room or in any public venue (like the pool, panorama lounge, etc.) This allows a lot of flexibility although in a way different from many cruises that have buffets open more throughout the day. We found all the dining venues to be good, but particularly enjoyed lunch at LaTerrassa and the Main Dining Room in the evenings.

Finally, we thought the Voices of Silversea, who provided several shows, were the most talented group we have seen on any cruise. The productions may not be as "big" as some larger ships, but the quality was higher.
