Review for Silver Explorer to Baltic Sea

6-10 Cruises

Age 60s

We took the 14-cruise, which started with a charter flight from Oslo to Longyearben, and included Svalbard, Greenland and Iceland. Although we received numerous extreme warnings from Silversea about how luggage limitations would be strictly enforced on the charter flight to Longyearben, none of the warnings turned out to be true. We were told that under no circumstances could we have more than one ...

10+ Cruises

Age 60s

It is one of the most boring cruise I have been on. Program is poorly executed and pre and post cruise program and schedule waste a lot of time for nothing. Charter flight to Longbyen is inconvenient for both embarkation and disembarkation. Food quality is very average. More like a 3-4 star quality than a 6 stars ship. There is not even ham for breakfast unless you specially ordered. All meals are ...

2-5 Cruises

We flew from the US to Oslo Norway and spent 2 nights at the Radisson Park Inn in downtown Oslo to deal with jet lag. Park Inn excellent location ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 70s

Never having been to the Arctic, taken an expedition cruise of any kind, or sailed with Silversea, this was a true voyage of firsts for us. The experience was incredible and I can assure you it will not be our last expedition cruise or sailing we take with Silversea. Pre-Cruise: Independent - 2 nights in Oslo at the Thon Panorama. A great location and nice hotel we found on an internet special. ...
