Additional details

Sail Date: Dec 2018
Cabin: Silver Suite 1

Travelled with family, attracted by the itinerary to Myanmar. Stayed in a Silver suite on level 9 with adjoining room. Previous personal experience on Silversea is only on a Galapago cruise and mainly have taken Crystal cruises (sorry if I use it as a benchmark a lot). Other family members have been on other Silversea cruises.

Embarkation - easy and quick.

Disembarkation within Silversea's control was fine and well organised. Some confusion with the ground transport staff and which van was to take us to the airport, waited for ages (Singapore).

Cabin Review

Silver Suite 1

Cabin S1

Cabin was excellent. We stayed in a Silver Suite on level 9 with connected adjoining room to make a two bedroom suite. Could not fault the room. Butler and attendant were excellent.

Only two issues to be aware of:

1) as someone else has already commented - just beware the larger suites (Silver suites, Owners suite etc.) on level 9 sit directly under the Pool and the Bar/Grill area on level 10. I think this is a similar layout on other Silverseas ships - there can be a lot of noise from overhead. It didn't bother me too much but you definitely could hear noises early in the morning (scraping of chairs and lounges being put out and put away for the day?). It might wake up or keep some people up.

2) I like bringing TV shows and movies on my laptop to catch up on during cruises. The internet is too slow to stream Netflix, I would suggest downloading beforehand. In Silver suites, they use I think a Samsung 55" MU7000 4K TV and it is connected to their TV/media service via an HDMI cable (their streaming movie and TV was not bad, they had relatively new movies that have just come out on Bluray/DVD etc). But they have changed to a custom remote control so you can't change HDMI input (could not work it with a samsung TV app on the phone, as I think the TV itself is not connected to wifi). So if you are going to hook up your ipad or laptop to the TV with an HDMI cable, which you can normally easily do in hotel rooms etc, it's a bit tricky, the only way I could get it to work is to manually unplug the existing HDMI cable, plug in my own HDMI so I could watch what was on my ipad, then disconnect it and replace their HDMI once I was done. The hard part was as the TV was wall mounted inflexibly quite close to the wall (so you can't actually turn or look at the back of the TV), it took some practice trying to feel the HDMI outputs and changing the cables by feel. Suggest googling a photo of the rear of the TV so you know where the inputs are. However in the adjoining room which is a the equivalent of a Panorama suite (no verandah) the TV is boxed off inside/behind glass (TV off = mirror). I think this would be the case for all the verandah suites also. So there is no chance to connect your ipad/TV because you can't even touch the TV behind the glass.
