Sail Date: Sep 2019
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean View with Verandah 1A

This was our eighth cruise overall and third with X. We chose this mainly for the itinerary.

Embarkation, disembarkation and ship transfers were very smooth and well executed.

We were on Silhouette a couple of years ago and loved The Hideaway so this time we booked on the forward slant, starboard deck 7. It was roomy for just the two of us with a very comfortable mattress and plenty of storage. We love the overhead storage and brought six bins to use with it. On mornings when we didn't go to the MDR for breakfast I trotted down to Cafe al Bacio for danish then coffee only ten steps from the cabin. Our cabin had an oversized balcony with a chaise, two chairs and a table. Of course, we used it more on the southern leg but still found it relaxing up north.

Deluxe Ocean View with Verandah 1A

Cabin 1A

Spacious enough for two with an oversized balcony containing a chaise, two chairs and a table. We loved the overhead storage and recommend taking cubes for it. The only downside was the steward's closet just outside. It made it a little hard to sleep in but they have to do their jobs.

Port Reviews

Amsterdam

Just went straight from the airport to the ship. Transfer done very well but baggage claim couldn't have been any farther from the gate.

Bilbao

Urdabai was a fishing village but we like Honfleur better.

Gibraltar

Just walked off to Casement's Square, did some shopping and had lunch. We'll take the shuttle next time.

Cartagena (Spain)

Walked off the ship, checked out the Roman ruins and did a little shopping. Had our bearings a little wrong and will do better next time.
