Big Disappointment

|

We were sadly disappointed from the start when the Muse "broke" and we we didn't depart until a day later than scheduled. We had already spent two days in Vancouver exploring the city, so the offer of a "free ...

Great Time on the Muse

This was our first cruise with Silversea (my first with any line) but will not be our last. We felt pampered and enjoyed our meals consistently throughout the 7 days. The ship and our cabin were bright and clean. ...

Cruise for Non-Cruisers: 7 Night Alaskan Cruise on Silver Muse

My lifelong motto has been that I hate the idea of cruising. The hoards of people, the mass quantity of low quality food, the tiny rooms, and silly excursions. I’ve been on two short cruises to appease family ...

Chose cruise to see Alaska in luxury with excellent food. We had booked the train from Anchorage to Seward but it was only running to a few miles short of Seward so Silversea decided to transfer everyone by bus ...

Luxury Ship? Yes! Luxury Service? No!

Disclaimer - this was our first cruise and perhaps our expectations were unrealistic. The ship was beautiful. The food and service were spotty. We enjoyed the food and experience at Silver Note, Kaiseki and ...

Disappointing. Not the luxury experience we had hoped for.

Our first mistake was assuming that, like Viking, Silversea cruises would be adults only. In fact, out of 580 passengers, 76 were children, about two thirds of those under 5 years old, or even babies. There are ...

Excellent Alaskan cruise overall - some things could be improved

I travelled with family and they recommended this cruise line having sailed with them before. The ship is smaller than what I have previously cruised on so I was concerned about motion - turned out to be a ...

Disappointing, expected more from Silversea

This was only our second cruise, the first being a Celebrity Eclipse S1 Suite cruise from Southampton to St Petersburg. This one week cruise on the Silver Shadow Veranda Suite cost £400 less than the two week ...

Disappointed

There were several factors leading to our disappointment. First, the ship is showing its age. It is clean but is definitely not what one would expect from a luxury cruise. The style was dated and the ...

Do your research on what you think is a "Luxury Cruise".

This was our second trip to Alaska. Our first was with 3 children on a Celebrity Ship 10 years ago. We thought it would be fun to try a much smaller and luxurious ship with friends. The cost was significantly ...
