We are long term fans of Silversea and wanted a relaxing cruise with plenty of days at sea. The service was excellent form the butler and room attendant to the restaurant crew, bar crew and executive staff. This was our first cruise ... Read more

I went on Silversea's Silver Wind for only the 2nd time in November 2016. The first time was 20 years ago during her Inaugural season. Considering she is nigh on 20 years old the state of her upkeep was fantastic. My suite was of course ... Read more

This cruise was misrepresented by Silverseas. They called it a cruise from Southampton to Montreal. We paid top dollar for this. This was a repositioning cruise, as told to us by many staff members. Repositioning cruises typically have ... Read more

My husband wanted a repositioning cruise and I didn't want to be at sea more than two days at a time. Given that we decided to cruise less than 90 days before departure this was the best option. We'd never sailed on SilverSea but friends ... Read more

Firstly, although we have many days on SS this was our first TA. Now, bear in mind that we love sea days and often stay aboard at destinations, we were never going to be fazed by over a week's worth of sea days between Bermuda and ... Read more

This was my first and probably last transatlantic cruise from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA to Lisbon Portugal. I enjoyed this first time experience but the large number of sea days was overwhelming so I am not sure I would do it again. ... Read more

Simply put: Way over priced for the value received. The service was OUTSTANDING. The wait staff and bar staff were superior. The food was mediocre and too eclectic for our taste. Italian offerings were named right but over-presented. ... Read more

We were on the Silver Cloud years ago and it converted us to cruising. Truly it was our third try and if Silversea hadn't delivered I'd never have got my husband on a cruise ship again. Since then we have done another couple of Silversea ... Read more

The title was chosen since the Silversea cruise could be divided into two parts from Barcelona to Funchal and then the trip to Fort Lauderdale. The Twice part is an ending comparison with the two Atlantic crossings this year, the Spring ... Read more

Overall Assessment--Supremely Satisfying Trip. This is my first attempt at a cruise review, so inadequacies may be obvious. Embarcation in Barcelona was seamless. Silversea accommodated us as we had arrived early due to a mistiming of our ... Read more

This was our first trip on a "small" luxury cruise ship and I must say it is the only way to sail if you can afford it. On first viewing the ship, it looks huge, but later encounters with the mega ships showed that we were indeed small. ... Read more
