We enjoyed our 14 cruise to Se Asia on the Silver Whisper. This was our 2nd cruise with Silver Sea . The ship is a bit tires and showing it’s 21+ years in service. We loved the itinerary Hong Kong, Philippines, Malaysia, Vietnam and finishing in Thailand. The staff on board were excellent , especially our cruise director Moss. We never had to ask for anything ; there was always someone there to take our order . No waiting ! The staterooms were fine but the air conditioning was the awful. We enjoyed the trivia and found the lectures to be outstanding. Entertainment was also very good for a small ship. The shore excursions were also incredibly well organized. We found the food pretty good; the only issue was with the dinners on the Restaurant ( main dining room) . The food was a ‘6’ out of 10 as they served very rich food with little low cal or vegetarian food . We were on the Dawn in Jan and they had a Japanese restaurant, pizza place, Salt , dedicated Arts Cafe with light fare. Way way more healthy. After 14 days I was ready to explode with the caviar, filet mignon , hamburgers with bacon, cream soups etc. when in port we decided to eat off ship and try local cuisine where we could find healthier options. In the future I will be booking the newer Silver Sea ships with the healthier dining options.

Port Reviews

Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon)

Did the cooking city tour with lunch . Went to the market . Excellent excursion

Manila

Did the old city walking tour with tea at the Manila hotel. Great tour

Puerto Princesa

Did the cave tour. Long ride bilateral worth it.

Coron

Fantastic boat tour of the islands. Snorkelling was amazing

Sandakan

Did not like our snorkelling tour . Boat was over crowded and no life jackets. Better to just go to Bonbon beach

Bangkok (Laem Chabang)

It’s a 90 minute drive to Bkk, cruise ship provided a transfer for $65 us per person

Hong Kong

The crown jewel of the orient . Spend 2 days prior to cruise
