Dirty room, child-size beds, bad food

We chose this cruise because Bridge at Sea was holding a bridge event, the bridge was fine- the ship was a huge disappointment. The interior spaces are old and tired, wear and stains on every surface. The room was ...

Uninspiring and flat

The idea was to see a new part of the world which we did. And to learn about the climate, people and history. Firstly, we sorta enjoyed the cruise. It was what it was and we had few expectations about the ...

You don't always get what you pay for

I was very displeased with the cruise we boarded on April 2 from Singapore to Mumbai. To our dismay upon boarding the ship was old and tired as many of the staff were. When we checked into our room I had to summon ...

Amazing trip!

A bucket list type trip for sure! The Galapagos islands were truly mesmerizing. They were remote, unspoiled, filled with animals (many endemic to Galapagos) and the scenery was over the top. We chose Silver ...

Great Travel Guests and Crew!

As a semi-surprise birthday trip my husband 'planned' this trip to the Galapagos Islands since it was a dream trip of mine for many decades. We had cruised with Silversea before so we knew traveling with them would ...

A good cruise on a new ship

We went with a wine group which selected the Silver Muse as its ship for the cruise. It is a new ship, having launched in 2017. Overall, the ship is very nice. It is a smaller ship about 600 passengers. Much ...

Excellent Experience. Do it at least once, preferably when younger.

This is a great way to see the Galapagos. As I said to the Silversea rep from whom I bought the cruise, "Where else can you act like you are in your 20's during the day's activities and go back to being 70+ when ...

We chose this cruise and company because of (1) It's a place we have wanted to visit for many years and (2) we had sailed with Silversea before on Silver Whisper 2016 in the Baltic. Of course there was the ...

This cruise was chosen because it was convenient with bridge and hosts. Bridge was fair to poor and not enough players. The teacher was uninteresting. Food was best of over 50 cruises. La Terazza, the ...

It's an expedition, not a cruise

Well, it was an expedition cruise, not a floating buffet. We stayed for 2 weeks and enjoyed every moment (except the air transfers). The emphasis is on the wildlife tours via zodiacs (similar to the SilverSea ...

No Better Way to See the Galapagos

This is a Silversea "Expeditions" cruise, so a smaller ship and not quite the same level of luxury as the bigger Silversea ships. But a fabulous cruise with two "ports" most days, one early morning for 3 hours or ...

The minor detail on an otherwise great cruise is that the hot tubs never really get hot enough. The international standard is 103 to 105 Fahrenheit and I felt that the tubs on "Wind" were about 100 to 101 F and that ...
