  3. Silver Muse
We sailed on the Silver Muse earlier this year from Rio to Fort Lauderdale and were blown away by the service, the quality of the boat, the frendliness of the staff etc etc. Grabbed a late minute deal to cruise again from Singapore as a round trip with the longest stay in Yangon for 3 days. Suite was 941 which is under the Pool Deck and at night and in the early morning you can hear the tables and chairs being set up and stored away. Would not recommend the cabins on Level 9 midships as they would all be affected to some extent. We were a little disappointed with the attention from our Butler but perhaps we were really spoilt last time and had higher expectations. Yangon is definitely 3rd world with the boat docked about 6 klms downstream from town because of the shallow approach. Unfortunately it takes between 1.5 and 2.5 hours to travel into the City along a very bumpy partially sealed road which they are in the process of upgrading. We opted out on the free tour on Day 3 as we had already done the trip in and out twice. It would have been better to stay 2 night in Langkawi or Phuket or have a stopover in Malacca on the way back rather than have 3 days in Yangon. Will cruise with Silversea again when another 'bucket list' destination comes up with competitive pricing.

Give Yangon a miss

Cabin Review

Panorama Suite
Cabin PR 941
Well located but the noise from the Pool Deck directly above when they are setting up first thing in the morning and then clearing the decks in the evening is very loud and was unexpected.
No balcony but otherwise an identical room in size to the Verandah Suites.
Suggest not to take a Panorama Suite if you like to open a window occasionally to let in the sea breeze.
