  3. Silver Shadow
1 - Boarding makes little effort to help physically challenged 2 Cheap wine and so called champagne a little better than vinegar 3 - Butler service is intermittent only available 7 to 12pm and 4 to 9pm 4 In-Room dining very poor quality 5 - Missed Saigon because of storm, but sailed through the storm to reach HaLong bay and sat there for 4 days, with nothing to do 6 Not a luxury experience So called formal nights not for today's travelers. This ship is dated and shows it. Never use Silver Sea again. Frankly cruising is not for me, it is such a con game the whole promise in the advertising is to me misleading. The hotels in Singapore and Hong Kong were excellent, wish I had spent my money there and not on crappy silver seas, it is not LUXURY.

NOT VALUE FOR MONEY
