We chose Silver Sea because of the cruise ports, small ship, luxury accommodations, reputation for service, recommendation of travel agent and positive comments from friends. The voyage was a very positive experience and we were skeptical ... Read more

Food and complementary drink very good. Good variety of four restaurants, though the best, for which an extra 40$ per head was charged, apparently had the same menu every night. The wines provided free were good and the wine list for ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted a small ship that could get in to the smaller areas of Alaska as well as not wanting a ship that we would need to share with 1,000 plus vacationers. With the exception of the excursions, everything ... Read more

This was the first time in Alaska for our family of 15, and our first small-ship cruise. And, long story short, it was excellent. Cabin We all had Veranda Suites, which were very spacious and had a great amount of storage space ... Read more

The service everywhere on the ship was excellent. The only area where Silversea dropped the ball was on embarkation. We waited well over an hour after getting our baggage in the airport in Paris, for the bus to take us to Rouen. We ... Read more

We very much enjoyed this cruise, met some lovely people and saw some very interesting places. Ship and standard of service was, as usual, very good and, overall, all staff were excellent. While we were pleased overall, there were some ... Read more

We had read about the small ship experience. Cannot tolerate large groups of people in a small area. Silver Seas was perfect in all respects. Great service, great crew, great ship, fantastic dining, beautiful and well planned excursions. ... Read more

I was excited at the chance to travel with Silversea as a single with a more than fair 25% upcharge. i'd heard many good things about the line from friends and my topnotch travel agent. I was not disappointed at all. The size of the ... Read more

We've cruised the Med/Adriatic before, but this was our first time on Silversea. We booked the newest ship, The Muse, because we wanted the most modern amenities and experience. I'd say we got those mostly. When we arrived, the ship ... Read more

We normally cruise with Crystal or Seabourn. First time on Silversea and it could be our last. Was excited to try new ship, the Muse, with new concept. But, Silversea has tried to think outside the box and modernize cruising, and instead ... Read more

The restaurant policies are a Joke There are only 2 out of the 7 restaurants that are casual, meaning no jacket for men I was required to wear a jacket to dinner in the other restaurants only to see many of the guests putting their ... Read more

I have cruised this line multiple times but I believe this might be our last experience with them. None of this criticism is meant in any way to detract from the kindness of the staff who were, by and large, lovely. On all of our SS ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. That part of the cruise lived up to expectations. The staff was pleasant and competent. All else, did not live up to expectations. The quality of the food, wines, lectures, desserts were ... Read more

We prefer smaller ships. We prefer upscale ships and are willing to pay the premium to avoid the hassles of budget ships. Silversea does a good job of advertising such a cruise. Execution is something else. Understand that Silver ... Read more

Needed to be in Denmark, so we we did this cruise first. My travel companion had been on other silverseas cruises so she really built it up, and we were both a bit let down. The ship seemed a bit old, but it was comfortable. My biggest ... Read more

We chose this cruise due to the timing (mid June before the big summer crowds), the length (seven days), the ports of call, the offer associated with it (airfare), and the fact that we love sailing on Silversea. Their ships feel like home ... Read more

The opportunity to try Silversea was one not to miss, so we joined Silver Whisper in Southampton for what turned out to be a superb mini cruise. Embarkation was speedy, though a little badly organised, check in being are reception desk ... Read more

Wanted to compare against Seaborn. There is really no comparison except for price and size of ship. Yes, both beat the larger ships and appeal to those who are wiling to pay for first class service. Maybe if I had not been on Seaborn, I ... Read more

We chose the cruise for its itinerary. Unfortunately, the "Bordeaux" stop was at an abandoned container dock 100 km from Bordeaux, so not having purchased a costly all-day shore excursion, we didn't see Bordeaux, so that was ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the ports and we heard Silversea was the ultimate cruising experience. After boarding, we learned that this ship was being totally renovated at the end of the summer. Unfortunately, the maintenance ended ... Read more

Overall I have been on several Silversea cruises and this was my first time on the Silver Cloud. I have read all the extreme negative reviews and was apprehensive. Fortunately for the most part everything is in top form. Yes, there ... Read more
