  3. Silver Wind
We chose a small luxury vessel because we had sailed before. First time to celebrate our mother’s 80th birthday . That time was luxury and service at its maximum expression. A few years latter we chose to spend a new years with Silverseas, the we went to Alaska. Than this one. The ports were terrible, Guatemala and Belize are poor destinations with poor attractions, but we thought they weren’t as bad as the reviews we saw. Key West and Cozumel are good ports. I don’t know what Silverseas are doing in those two countries, especially Guatemala, with all the insecurity, armed police and just the general feeling that you don’t feel safe. Belize, well there is nothing there if you have limited mobility or if you are over 70. But the worst part was the service, most waiters don’t understand well English, so you ask for something and they bring you something else. Some are are bad mood and even “talk back” or roll eyes when you ask for something. After you eat, either at the dining room or at the Grill, they take more than 20 minutes to clear the table. Most time you have to ask to clear the table. This used to be a luxury cruise, well its quality is going downhill. The entertainment is great. Great pianist, musicians, singers. The food could be better. Not gourmet style like before, The ship is way too old, but clean, everything is in the galley and just the logistics are complicated, that is I think that has the waiters in a bad mood. The bartenders at the downstairs bar are amazing, the ones in the top bar are always mad. And in a bad mood. Maybe because we were 10. Not what I expected. I have salied Regent, Crystal,Seabourne, oceania, Celebrity, even Royal Caribbean And MSC.

Silverseas is losing its charm
