Hoping for a Crystal Replacement and Silversea was not it!

Sail Date: Dec 2022

We have done multiple trans-Atlantic crossings on Holland American, Celebrity, and our all time favorite Crustal Cruises which has gone into bankruptcy. We were hoping our excellent travel agent was correct in suggesting Silversea as just what we wanted.

This was a Lisbon to Ft. Lauderdale route wit only stops in Funchal and St.Juan,, P.R. Weather starting out was a little dismal but quickly improved to relatively calm seas and mid 70's.

The Dawn in only a year into service so its physical aspects are in tip top shape. The veranda cabin is spacious with a nice divider between the sleeping area and the lounging area. Nice walk-in closet with dresser and safe. Bathroom is relatively large but much of the space is taken up by the large tub, unused by us.. Welkin shower is nice. Counter and storage space is good but there is only a single sink.

Cabin Review

In general happy with cabin as described above. TV service/movies was very good. Silversea hypes "butler service" but other than his offer to unpack for us he was just a good cabin steward in a fancy suit. We had a recurring problem with no or little hot water in the vanity sink (thankfully not in the shower) which they attempted to cure but didn't.

He happily suppled a bottle of scotch and vodka per our request and suggested we get a bottle of wine as well. The latter proved to be the last bottle of Primitivo on the ship so we took it to the Italian dinner venue one evening.
