Very disappointed

Great itinerary. I think you can see the changes now that Royal Caribbean is the new owner.The food was fair at best. For a cruise of this length there was not enough change. Menu seemed to change only after 7 days. Many sauces slopped on all entries. Breakfast and lunch were fair at best. Many lunch items were inedible. I think they were not buying quality meats. Salads were non existent. ...

We have some 130 days cruising with Silversea. This is the first time we have taken a cruise for the sake of taking a cruise, that being spending Christmas and New Year on the ship and not because we wanted to see specific destinations. Everything about the cruise was perfect, it greatly exceeded our expectations. There was a fantastic mix of passengers, surprisingly there were a number ...

This trip should b a no brainer for SS, but it's not. To many little issues turn into stupidity. Examples, a Milk shake in US is made with ice cream and milk, they use no milk but use ice. Very difficult to explain how to make since there order system doesn’t allow explanations. The restaurants have a set menu, which means no different meals. Oceania, Regent, Crystal all have new menus for ...

Superb from embarkation to disembarkation. My daughter took me on this cruise to celebrate a milestone birthday and I could not recommend it highly enough. She has sailed with Silversea before so I knew what to expect but it exceeded my expectations by a thousand percent. The service, the dining experiences, the amazing staff, the excursions, the suite, our butler and cabin attendant, the ...

Great Butler, fabulous wine lectures, but not good food.

Lawrence was amazing in talking about wine, so much so, fasting and not eating would have been an option. But not one beef serving was edible. We laughed at lunch when the knife could not cut the beef and the kangaroo was more tender. Again, would go to drink wine, but fillet in Indochine tasted like liver and even cheeseburger had No beef taste. Appears Royal Caribbean’s purchase ...

We were on two legs of the cruise that started at the date listed in Auckland and completed in Singapore on 01/21/2018. We wanted to see part of Australia. It's so large you have to go at least two to three times. We added New Zealand to the itinerary because of travel costs, flights in business class are so high at that duration and distance. We're glad we added New Zealand. The shore ...

The culture of this ship does not live up to its rating

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary, rating of cruise line and were told the ship had been renovated the year before. We were hugely disappointed. The Embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly, including the stops. That's where the good news ends. The staff on the ship were not well trained. The servers had these tablets they took orders on and they had pictures of all the cruisers ...

Never again with Silversea

We wanted to visit New Zealand and Australia at this time of the year and had heard good things about Silversea. If the Silver Shadow is an example of the Silversea cruise line, we will never travel on a Silversea ship again. The ship is very old and most definitely not the luxurious ship it's promoted, the restaurant staff was poorly trained and no one seemed to be supervising the staff, the ...

Poor beginning with some issues and late attempts to resolve issues

chose the cruise for silver sea reputation and ports of call. too many sea days, some ports of call were a total waste of time. could have stayed longer in main ports, bali and perth. perhaps cost of ports was too high to remain there. would not recommend this ship or ports of call to anyone. excursion director had poor attitude and not professional. restaurants excluding pool area ...

We chose this cruise for the itinerary - Auckland NZ to Sydney AUS - and over Christmas/New Year's holidays. We've done about 50 cruises in the last 20 years on a number of lines. Most recently we took three cruises on Crystal but began to notice things slipping as they seem to have lost sight of their core cruise business as they have expanded. So we were eager to see what Silversea had to ...
