The best food and service we have experienced over six cruises with other similar companies. This was our first with Silversea . The ship however was a great disappointment. It was shabby and dated. It needs to be sold off as I think it is past saving. The common areas are underwhelming even allowing for a smaller size overall. The bathrooms were so small we could hardly turn around. The shower ...

This cruise was chosen mainly for the destination and the ports visited on the way. We usually travel on Seabourn but this itinerary suited our travels to Africa. Boarding at Dubai was a breeze. We found out shortly thereafter that there were only 140 passengers on board, less than half full. Some of my impressions of the cruise will obviously take this into account. The staff on board were ...

The staff on this rather exciting itinerary off the beaten path for most Americans was excellent. I have never seen a harder working or more dedicated staff. Our Grand suite was well designed except for the bathroom which was a nightmare when showering. I cannot imagine what the designers were thinking. The color scheme in the suite was depressing. The carpeting in the halls was often stained and ...

We booked 3 back-to-back cruises from Dubai to Capetown, and, in spite of concern that it would be too long a time on the ship, it was just the opposite. We easily settled into a routine and the days flew by. TheVista is the smallest of the accommodations, it was roomy enough and we never felt cramped. While we didn't have a veranda, there was always deck space available on decks 8 and 9. ...

As previous Silversea cruisers, we were very excited to be joining the Silver Wind on February 2nd out of Cape Town after our private 10 day safari in Namibia and short stay in at a great new modern boutique hotel-- Harbour Bridge Hotel and Suites in Cape Town. Try and visit Namibia before it changes. Namibia has some of the most diverse landscapes in Africa. Dunes 1000 feet tall, game parks, ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

As this was our first experience of cruising we have nothing to compare it with. We could only go by the descriptions given be Silversea and some reviews we had read. It was promised to be a 5 if not 6 star cruise, we are well travelled and do have very high expectations and these were not met.I would say it was more like 4 star. We found the food bland and a little boring, with nothing local on ...
