My review: THE SILVERSEA – SILVER MUSE. The Silver Muse is simply a brilliant ship (the best I have ever sailed on) along with its excellent crew and all of its on-board facilities. It lierally floats on the ocean like a dream with its stabilizers holding it with almost no movement awareness on board. Its 8 restaurants are all magnificently appointed with the best food at sea (beats Oceania by at least 10 points), wherever you turn the luxury of this ship is outstanding from its beautifully furnished and super spacious all-suite accommodation to it many lounges, good sized theatre, easy access staircases, several lifts, library and its many comfort areas and cocktail bars. A delightful pool and spa with its waiter cocktail service for all guests is all a part of this incredible ship that carries around 600 passengers and maybe 400 crew, and a brilliant cruise director, the best we have ever experienced. You can be assured that your every whim is catered for, as a person you are not just another passenger, you are the most important person on board, nothing is too much trouble for the staff, the concierge and the super friendly crew. As a frequent cruiser who has travelled the world on most other cruise lines and their ships, this would have to be the ultimate in cruising and most certainly worth a 6-star - or better rating. Initially we were a little hesitant about booking this particular cruise because of its Asian ports itinerary that had been selected. Being honest the ports are not the best, but with the ambience of the ship you soon forget the ports and the on-shore excursions where one gets stuck in the traffic jams of Djakarta etc. One terrific port of call was a virtual desert Island off Java with only 80 permanent residents where the ship tenders were required, but the crew and facilities provided were just incredible. Lunch, free drinks and entertainment was all shipped ashore by the incredible crew to give guests a true desert island experience. I should mention this is a completely independent assessment, I am not being paid or receiving any benefit from anyone, this is my own opinion having recently returned from an 8-day cruise on this magnificent ship between Singapore and Bali, Indonesia. If you enjoy cruising, whatever you do, don't pass on the Silversea, Silver Muse, she would have to be the most impressive ship sailing the oceans today.

Cabin Review

Classic Verandah Suite
Cabin CV 534
A brilliant layout compared to many other cruise ship cabins with its marble bathroom that includes a bath and a good sized shower. A good sized walk in wardrobe with fitted drawers, a security safe and lots of hanging space. The double bedroom with its inbuit wall mounted flat TV screen and ceiling speakers can be divided by a curtain betweeh the bedroom and the living area
The lounge has no shortage of space with plenty of room to spread out and relax. A unique discreet wall panel TV is mounted above fitted cabinets that include a writing desk, fridge and lots of storage and drawer space.
Blackout curtains are incorporated above solid double glazed sliding doors leading to a good sized veranda with a table and two chairs.

My only negative experience was the hardness of the bed and lack of a decent Dunlopillo pillar. Sadly, the ship doesn't carry mattress toppers as some cruise lines do if you need to add a bit more comfort to your sleep.
