"The biggest issue with SS’s butler service was that if you needed something between 1-5 PM that wasn’t food related, there was no one to speak with.Because of Hurricane Fiona we missed several ports, which obviously is no one’s fault...."Read More

Very Disappointing Cruise

We chose the cruise starting in Quebec City and ending in New York City, stopping in ports along the St Lawrence Seaway. We were eager to see what Silver Sea had to offer, since they bill themselves as an all-suites luxury line. Among the better aspects of the cruise were the ports and excursions. We also enjoyed meeting some very congenial people. Now for the truly disappointing aspects. ...

A disappointingly mediocre experience for a premium price by what was once a premier cruise line.

We are normally Regent travelers, but because of family circumstances we asked our travel concierge to get us on a 10-12 day Fall Foliage cruise on a premium cruise line in a specific date window. We had a choice of Seabourn or Silversea. We selected Silver Sea because of dates, smaller ship size, and their prior reputation. What a mistake. We'll NEVER sail on Silver Sea again. We so wanted a ...

Writing this now because I can not believe that SilverSea has been named best luxury cruise line. As far as we are concerned never again. To start with the positives- our butler and steward were both absolutely fantastic. So were the staff in the medical centre which I visited each day to have a dressing changed . However the praise stops there. Food, decor and entertainment all very ...

We just finished 22 Days on Silver Whisper doing a B2B Fall Foliage/Canada cruise. There were some very good things, but there were instances that didn’t reflect well on Silversea. Unfortunately, the expression "You Get What You Pay For" did not apply here. As background, we’ve cruised dozens of times, mainly on Crystal, as well as Regent, Oceania, Celebrity, HAL, Lindblad, and most ...

After having been on 4 Silversea cruises, we chose the Canada and New England cruise at this time to be able to sail into NYC. It was a thrilling experience! We have sailed on the Wind, the Spirit (twice), and the Cloud. Each cruise was excellent. We loved the small-sized ship, and the crew was exceptional. The personalized service of Silversea, from the butler to the maitre ...

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 tiny, we knew that, but we didn't know that the beds weren't full sized, the brochure said "queen-sized", instead they were shorter and narrower than standard beds. Nice quality linens, ...

Our First Cruise Ever and I thought I would hate it

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

ABOUT US: My wife and I (in our 50s) wanted to find a cruise on a smaller ship without the masses of people since this was our first cruise. We have heard nightmares from the larger cruise ships and wanted to avoid the "hairy chest contest" cruise lines. In all candor, I was not looking forward to the cruise since i am not accustom to being in a confined or crowded location. We have high quality ...

A great cruise, despite the storm

My wife, son and I booked this cruise to celebrate my 50th birthday and traveled in suites 702/704. We are frequent Silversea cruisers and we actually hit our 100th day during this voyage. All I can say is that Silversea is still a top-notch luxury cruise vacation. I know many people may not be happy as a tropical storm forced us to miss 4 of the ports (Madeleine Islands, Portland, Boston, ...

Ship was fine, food and amenities disappoint

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

First time sailing on Silverseas and we expected a very nice trip. Cabin was fine, on par with Regent, just not as new. Having a butler was nice. Food was at best mediocre. There were really only 2 restaurants to choose from (weather was so cool, pool side dining was not comfortable). Menus changed only every 3 days. Breakfast buffet was pretty much the same every day. Lunch buffet varied, ...

We selected this cruise to be pampered a little and to see the fall colors in Canada and the east coast. We were lucky because the fall colors were late this year. Embarkation was smooth, however, they were a little late getting our bag to the cabin ~ lost one for awhile due to someone taking the tag off! An added bonus was that we had the best cruise director ever, Vicki Van Tassel - she was ...
