No longer 6 star

Review for a Baltic Sea Cruise on Silver Wind

Silver Wind is in for a full refit in twelve months time. This is probably twelve months too late. Looking tired, the ship is saved by its excellent crew. There was nothing intrinsically wrong with the cruise, probably still a good 4.5 star experience. But that is not how Silverseas is marketed. Fellow travellers were discussing looking elsewhere. Food was good but not exceptional. ...

We disembarked the Silver Wind in early June and generally had a very good cruise. The main attraction, certainly so far as my OH was concerned, was the sail in and out under Tower Bridge (note to destination lecturer - not "The" Tower Bridge, just Tower Bridge). We had a quick and easy embarkation and our suite, a classic veranda, was fine and looked in good order. We did find an item on a ...

The ship needs a complete overhaul.

We chose this cruise based on the itinerary. We had no reason to believe that the ship was as rundown as it was. Dark dingy hallways, bathrooms that have not been touched since the launch of the ship in 1995. It was literally dangerous trying to enter the tub/shower. There is no elevator above the 8th deck so getting to the spa is an adventure...not a good one. The ship is going into dry dock ...

My Wife and I and two friends chose this cruise because of the destinations. Leaving Lisbon, Oporto La Coruna, Bilbao, Bordeaux, La Rochelle, Belle Isle, St Malo and Honfleur. All the Cities and villages we ever wanted to visit. For our Anniversary I had upgraded to a larger suite (601) which was at the front of the ship. My wife was delighted and the suite was OK except the Bathroom ...

1. The food was generally not of the quality expected. Bread was consistently poor quality and at times was stale. We would actually buy our own bread at bakeries at the ports of call and bring it for breakfast. The selections of wines at dinner was generally mediocre. It seems that considering the quality of food available at the various ports of call that the food and wine could have more ...

Fair Experience - Below Standard for Silversea

We chose Silversea because we wanted to enjoy a luxury cruise and visit beautiful ports in Greece and Italy. We have traveled Silversea in the past and have been very pleased by the experience. However, this experience did not meet expectations. The Ship was old and was in need of refurbishment. She is still a beauty but needs some work to make her look more fresh and inviiting. Our cabin ...

We booked a 16 day Med voyage on Spirit , but due to extended refurbishment time, the voyage was cancelled and Silversea offered a number of alternatives. The only cruise to fit our timings was Silver Wind from Barcelona to Athens in April/May. The ship being older and somewhat smaller than the Spirit, was supposed to have been refurbished before our booked voyage, we were somewhat disappointed ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

I chose this cruise considering the size of the ship, ports of call and the reasonable single supplement. Silversea was amazing I would highly recommend them to anyone. I loved the size of the Silver Wind. Its amenities and quality of staff. As to the ports of call, I'm getting a little old for the crowds at most of the stops, but that is just part of the modern world. The best stop was ...

My wife and I have done 20+ cruises on many different lines but latterly we have been mainly with Silversea. We joined Silver Wind in Fort Lauderdale and were onboard by 11.45 and drinking our first champagne of the trip in La Terazza when it opened for lunch at noon, Regulars on the Wind will know that is rather like a pair of old shoes - very comfortable but not in the first flush of youth. ...

My wife and I have just finished cruise #2813 Ft Lauderdale/Barcelona April 6-20 and it was very good overall. After many years of sailing with Silversea and seeing it decline in some luxury aspects, I decided to point out some differences from many years ago to today in hopes that their management might consider some changes. Boarding procedures for this cruise were excellent, as usual. They ...
