  • Destination: Asia
  • Cabin Type: Vista Suite

I wish I had read the Cruise Citic Reviews for this ship before I booked. I would not have gone ahead. Many of the reviews do not have nice things to say about this ship and they are accurate. Silversea claim that this is a 6 star ship. I have done 27 Cruises and it is 4 - 4.5 stars at best. So in summary I paid a six star price for a 4 star ship. Everything on board is the cheapest of the Cheap. Even the bottled water in the cheapest they could buy. No Evian here - cheap water from somewhere in China.

Ship - Tired and Run Down.

Staff - poor levels of english and you have to ask for everything 4 times

Management - Don't care - we told them of our dissappointment only to be ignored - One manager organised one special meal for us and that was it.

Special Requests - At first they tell they can't do special things for you hoping you will stop asking then after a while the reluctantly give in and get it for you - not what was expected on a "6 star" ship.

Don't expect any pampering on this ship.

They claim to have daily yoga, pilates and fitness classes - they had nobody on board to do them.

Out of 27 cruises Silversea are in my bottom 5.

Size OK. Very stuffy and often smelled like sewerage or cleaning product.
