COVID didn't have much effect

Review for Silver Whisper to Caribbean - All

We booked this cruise 18 months ago to be a short relaxing getaway after the holidays to warmer climate. Unfortunately, Omicron hit, too late to back out so we hoped for the best. COVID test at embarkment (Barbados) actually wasn't too bad, 30 - 40 min. so don't let COVID procedures stop you from cruising. If you get seasick easily then understand this is a small ship and it does roll a bit - ...

This was our fourth cruise on the Spirit. We love the staff and the ship. Butler and room attendent were very good. Upon arrival cleanliness was definitely suspect. We complained and they fixed that day and going forward no real issues. We only had service to the room in the evening. Covid spread was definitely all around us particularly in our mid ship level 6 location thus our desire to not have ...

This was our first Silversea cruise and we were looking forward to 12 relaxing days of 6 star treatment! Good: Room was spacious. Loved the food and service at the Grill/pool bar. We had steak, burgers, fish, chicken, salads (all of which was great). Also enjoyed the brick oven pizza and gelato. Probably the best gelato we have had outside of Italy! We did not go to any of the shows, but ...

Having cruised all over the world on various lines, we thought we would try Silversea. We had heard good things about it and thought it was an upscale cruise line. We were wrong! These are the reasons we did not like this cruise line. The cruise was Fort Lauderdale to Fort Lauderdale traveling to the West Indies. Restaurant service is slow Food was not good quality The food was very ...

The Silver Whisper is advertised as an upscale ship. I guess it depends on what you are looking for on your cruise. Our voyage in the Caribbean was a great disappointment in many respects. The ship itself it's very nice but not great. . The best thing about the Whisper is the crew. They are outstanding in every way. Drinks are free and that's great. On the other hand, the food was consistently ...

My wife and I last travelled with Silversea on the Whisper in late 2018. We have since had a number of bookings cancelled because of Covid. The itinerary for this cruise was changed at short notice because of the volcanic eruption on La Palma. One port of call was Arricefe on Lanzarote and for some reason we were bussed to a beach some miles from the port. This consisted of cheap souvenir shops ...

Review for Silver Spirit to Mediterranean

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We last sailed with Silversea 10 years ago (on Silver Spirit) but when we saw a cruise that appealed to us we thought we would give them a try again. We had very little communication from Silversea after booking other than an email explaining their covid procedures. No luggage labels were sent out and they didn’t tell us that would be the case either. On our previous cruise in the Caribbean ...

Review for Silver Cloud Expedition to Antarctica

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

As I had been twice(Galapagos and Papua New Guinea) with Silversea and had a good experience, I thought Antarctica with them would be a good choice… how wrong I was! Silversea put all it’s passenger at risk of getting covid, because of allowing a group of people who were together with 2 positive covid cases, detected on arrival at Santiago airport, to board the ship. From those people, 2 of ...

Disappointing Silverseas cruise

We went on the cruise as a special treat as we would not normally spend this amount of money on a 10 day cruise. Silverseas were highly recommended by our travel agent who told us to expect 6 star treatment. Our initial thoughts about the ship were very positive it was in pristine condition. The staff were excellent (The staff on every cruise that we have been on were also excellent), and our ...
