To begin with this review, the cruise with the Silver Wind was fabulous as always. Food was great and the service could not be better. The ship need a renovation, but that happens nex year.
Dining at eveningtime we prefer The Restaurant. Meals are very good and the service also.
At lunch we prefer La Terrazza outside. It's so nice to sit there with a nice view. In St Peters Port the weather was the best, so nice then to have lunch outside.
Service in La Terrazza exellent!
Entertainmaint was also very nice, we liked the performance of the singers.
Butler en housekeeping as always, very good service! Room was very clean.
You may know, me and my partner sailed more then 400 days with Silversea.
Why did a rated this cruise one ball?
That's because of the price.
I booked suite 439 (Vista) and pay including 10% off, because more then 250 days, and 5% on board booking Euro 2.254,- You may know, the last half year before this cruise, start the price was going up to Euro 4.000,- per guest excluding flight, transfer.
In the Netherlands is a website for crew members for airlines workers and touroperator workers. They can booked a lot of Silversea cruises for VERY MUCH LOWER prices. There was a couple on board they had in the past worked by KLM and booked this cruise for Euro 1.700,- for a vista suite. Three days before boarding they get a message from the operator that they got an upgrading to suite 741, yes a Medallion suite. Almost three times bigger then a Vista suite. Also including free laundry.
Is this normal? Of course not!!!
Possible you know that pilots working with KLM had a year income to Euro 275.000,-
The may also booking this cruise for this price.
I call this larceny! Okay some people get discount, but that upgrading is far from right.
Ans this was not for the first time. Last march this couple did a 13 day cruise with the Silver Muse from Singapore to Hong Kong. Price for a Vista Suite USD 1.300,-
Once they came on board they get an upgrading to a veranda suite.
First i was interested to do a cruise with the Silver Shadow from Rome to Venice in 11 days starting at september 22 this year. Price for a Vista Suite on the Silversea website Euro 7.700,- per guest. Price on www.insidertravel Euro 2.600,- for a Vista, per guest!
NO WAY that we booked this cruise.
Cabin is nice but need to be upgraded. Next year in august Silversea is gonna do that. Very good!
Amsterdam is a great port for embarkation.
We had there tender service.
Beautiful island, nice to walk there.
We visti Knokke with the tram.
We prefer the port of Antwerp more.
Highlight of the cruise is crossing the Tower Bridge!
