Wonderful itinerary, and mostly wonderful experience on the Quest

I went on this cruise with my parents, and we really loved it. Embarkation was a breeze, we took a taxi from the airport to the port in Nice, France, and about ten minutes after getting out of the taxi we were on ...

My wife and I were part of a private event that took over the whole ship for 5 days/4 nights. We have experienced great service before, but this was our first cruise. Though we live in a cruise-port, big ships turn ...

This is the worst ship I've ever been on!

This was the Monaco Grand Prix cruise. We were planning to take SilverSea but their cruise was too long. The Quest was billed as a 5 star ship, so we had high, unfulfilled expectations. Not withstanding an ...

I would definitely cruise with Silversea again.

I was nervous boarding as I had read a recent review that stated the ship was tired and in need of a overhaul. I disagree. The ship is an older one but had charm. Our cabin was well appointed and clean and there was ...

$ 200 per person per night. Not worth it.

Silversea apparently had difficulties selling this cruise - the boat wasn't full. With our various discounts it came out at $ 400 total per night for my wife and I. But it wasn't worth even the discounted price. ...

Our first ever cruise was with MSC four years ago, and we haven't sailed with them since. We were therefore aware of the language problem etc. We'd already cruised twice this year, but when a great deal came up ...
