We chose for the smaller of the three types of ships that they have. We have, in the past, sailed on the Silver Cloud and the Silver Spirit. We did not really like their largest ship the Spirit. The trip went from Athens, four ports in Egypt as well as the Suez Canal, Aquaba, two ports in Oman and our last stop was Dubai. What a great trip this was, the very best ever with Silversea. Not one ...

This trip was exceptional from start to finish, with a few middle-eastern style 'quirks', which were down to the locals not the ship. I would highly recommend Silver Wind to anyone who values the personal touch, the very very best of service and personality over cutting-edge design and gimmicks. Silver Wind met my every expectation, it was a joy to be on-board. The people really make this ship, ...

We ordinarily cruise with Crystal but as we liked this Middle-East itinerary we decided to try a smaller ship. As my husband is confined to a wheelchair; accessibility of all areas of the ship and the layout of the suite was important. We found the embarkation process very good and speedy. As with Crystal, the wheelchair cannot be simply wheeled onto the ship and entry through the kitchen is ...

We flew with BA from Manchester to Athens via Heathrow on 10 November as a prelude to joining Silver Wind on the 12th. We were living in trepidation because of the frequency of strikes in Greece and the severe impact this could have on our plans. Fortunately, the general strikes in Athens fell only days either side of our stay. We did, however, get caught up in the security clampdown around the ...

On the recommendation of our cruise travel operator, we chose to visit the Middle East on the Silver Wind , hoping for an informative and fun adventure. Having enjoyed several cruises on other upmarket cruise lines, we were sorely disappointed by this experience. The royal suite was always dark, there being only small windows and no sliders to patio. The furnishings badly needed a revamp and ...

Silver Wind is a small ship whose Tardis like properties make it feel far from small. The cabins are spacious if not cavernous, and it misses few of the traditional cruise ship facilities despite its meagre 17,400 tons. It doesn't provide the stylish drop-down stern and marina of some boutique competitors, nor romantic double chaise longue - if you are so inclined, however as the majority of ...

I have skimmed the prior review of this cruise and by odd coincidence, my daughters and I had staterooms that were nearly adjacent to that of the reviewer. We have very different observations. Be that as it may, I chose the Silverseas line because I had been on most itineraries that Seabourne travels. I also was attracted by the low single supplement fee charged for a second suite. As ...
