My wife and I were very excited about our first cruise with SilverSea. We like the smaller ships and had seen that they were focusing on a high quality food experience. Combining a trip to Italy with this cruise seemed like a wise decision. However, we were disappointed with the outcome. Let me illustrate some of our experiences, both good and bad on the cruise: Embarkation was smooth ...

We chose this cruise because it was my first holiday in 10 years and we didn’t want to take any chances so we went for the best. The evening after I booked the trip (not yet paid in full) I did more research on the Spirit only to find that she was being cut in half and lengthened and that we were on the first cruise following the work. We called both our agent and Silversea the following ...

My second cruise with silversea. I found the silver shadow far more engaging. My first day onboard was a put off in that I didn't find it either welcoming or friendly. As it's only a 4 day stint I have a gut feeling that many of the staff took the foot of the peddle. Other than the cabin staff and waiter in the section of The main restaurant I ate in every day the word that best describes most I ...

We have cruised to various locations, cruise lines but with a range of experiences. We chose Silversea for the smaller ships but luxurious suites & service offered. What a disappointment. We booked the best part of a year ago in a guaranteed V1 category. We received our tickets 10 days before sailing & were allocated a disabled suite. We complained to our tour operator immediately but were told ...

This was a short trial first time with Silversea.The weather was bad so Marseille was deleted and 2 of the 4 days were spent in Livorno. No can blame Silversea for the weather but though we were stuck in this predicament they did not put on any entertainment during the day and the ship was really cold due to the gangways being open to the elements. The suite was great and generally well kept .I ...

We went last December to the Caribbean with Silverseas and after having a wonderful holiday we decided to go with Silverseas again. We were not disappointed. The service on board the ship was brilliant. All the staff are so friendly, polite and helpful. Dining was a real pleasure as the food served in all the restaurants was first class. Our butler was really good, since nothing was too much ...

I read every cruise critic review before we left and was a little concerned. Frankly, I think the negative reviews are wrong. Our service was outstanding every step of the way. Every crew member greeted us warmly. Our butler did a great job with every detail requested. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. We only ate in the main dining room and LaTerraza....both were great. ...

My husband always wanted to go to Sicily and I always wanted to go to Sardinia, and this was perfect way to see both without having to plan it ourselves. The service on the ship was fantastic, the staff was exceptional. The only negatives were the pool was ridiculously small, because the weather was beautiful and after a day exploring, it was nice to come back to the ship and sit by the pool. Also ...

We chose this cruise because Silver Sea is one of several cruise 5-star luxury cruise lines and we liked the itinerary (and our friends asked us to join them). While the cruise was very good overall, we felt that some of the "rules" were rigid and the staff, while anxious to please, often wasn't well trained. On several occasions, we were told that the specialty dining room was sold out. We ...
