Additional details

Sail Date: May 2019
Cabin: Veranda Suite

It should be the first cruise and should be a great experience. On closer inspection, the ship was outmoded, worn and not up to date. Data transfer to iphone or laptop a sheer catastrophe. The bed width (we had twinbeds) only 80 cm - with a little swell you threatened to fall out. There should be a butler individually available to each cruise guest (which was mathematically completely impossible) - but that per Butler 15 guests were to look after, shows how rarely one had "his" butler actually available. The entertainment events were rather of moderate quality. Good were the mostly Filipino staff in the cabin cleaning and in the service of the three restaurants. In this overall form you can not advise a trip on the SilverShadow.A clear difference was also noticeable when offered dinner in the inclusive restaurant "the restaurant". We ate there twice and in both cases the food was extremely salted and we let things go back. Good were only the food in the two restaurants, where the drinks were charged separately.

Cabin Review

Veranda Suite

Cabin V3

nternet crashes constantly, as well as telephone calls or the attempt to make the discussion partner over Skype visible. The TV comes from the early days of flat screen development. The pixel resolution cruelly bad. The choice of available TV channels: bad. the beds too narrow as I already wrote. The overall picture: inappropriate.
