240 Sq. Ft. / 22 M2. Includes large picture window providing panoramic ocean views. Twin beds or queen-sized bed. Sitting area. Remote-controlled television with DVD and satellite reception. Champagne upon arrival and replenished as you desire. European bath amenities. Fine bed linens, plush robes and slippers. Spacious wardrobe and full-length mirror.
The first thing we noticed is that the cabin is much larger than we were used to on Crystal.
It has a bathroom with separate shower and tub along with two sinks. There is a walk- in closet with ample hanging space and a chest of drawers. The room has a curtain that separates the sleeping area from the seating area. Each Silversea cabin has its own room attendant and butler in tails. Jomit, our Indian butler was always available, friendly and accommodating. He really looked out for us. There was always fresh OJ and cranberry juice in the fridge along with sodas and beers etc. Room service breakfast was on time with Jomit serving us. There is a table extender in the closet they use to make an oval coffee table into a dining table. Each evening there were chocolates on the pillow. Crystal stopped that service two cruises ago when the company was sold to a Chinese conglomerate. On several occasions we had chocolate covered strawberries waiting for us after dinner. After one of our excursions got us back after the dining venues were closed for lunch, we ordered the room service four cheese pizza and it was superb. The room service menu has a filet mignon entree that you can also order in the main dining room. We did so one night and it was as good or better than that in the Peech Hotel in Jo'burg. Crystal relies on a chewy sirloin. During a mid-cruise storm when the dining areas were empty due to the rocking and rolling, Jomit got us room service food in less than 20 minutes. When we crossed the Intl Date Line, my wife lost her birthday on the 25th. Pre-cruise literature stated that the 24th would be lost. Jomit and Vincent made up for it by decorating our room with balloons, a large wreath on the bed and a card from the captain. After dinner that night we returned to the room and the divider curtain was drawn. When I opened the curtain there was a laser show, more balloons, a wall poster wishing a happy birthday and a cake shaped like a ship with chocolate sails on the tea light decorated table. We were really impressed by all of their efforts to make us feel at home on their ship. Read entire member review >>
We had one of the “suites” with only a window, not a veranda open to the sea. About 85% of the cabins on the ship do have verandas, but this was a fully booked ship and a veranda suite wasn't available. As it turned out, we didn’t miss the veranda as much as we thought we would, as it was often quite chilly, and we probably would not have had breakfast on the veranda. There was also not as much to see on the Alaska itinerary as I thought there would be. There was only one whale spotted, and we missed it. The couple we were traveling with did see a large pod of porpoises.
Our cabin was quite large, about 287 square feet. We had a comfortable queen bed, a walk-in closet and a lovely large bathroom with both tub and separate shower, plus two washbasins in a granite top. There was plenty of storage. We had a small fridge, and our butler kept us supplied with ice. The TV, though a flat screen model, seemed fairly old, and we found the DVD player difficult to use. Although some of the wood surfaces in the room showed a little wear, overall the suite (though that’s stretching the definition) was very nice. We had no complaints. Read entire member review >>
Excellent location midships. Close to dining room and elevators. Quiet and comfortable. Plenty of storage space. Loved the dual-sink bathroom which was quite spacious. Walk-in closet was well-designed with plenty of space to maneuver. Read entire member review >>
