Last summer, we sailed the SILVER MOON in Greece and had such an exemplary experience, we opted to sail its new sister, the DAWN last month to Italy/Croatia/Malta. Here are the Pro's and Con's: PROS Stunning accommodations, the Silver Suite was as perfect, comfy and amazing as last year on the Silver Moon. Best sleep ever, super high end mattress and bedding. Spacious bathroom w/ huge tub ...

This was my first RCI cruise. I chose it for its itinerary. The cruise started from Vienna/Ravenna, and, let me be clear, Ravenna is an expensive and inconvenient place to start a cruise. I had wanted to revisit Venice for a few days prior to the cruise, and very early on, I wrote to RCI inquiring about transfers to Ravenna from downtown Venice. I heard nothing. I called them, still almost 8 weeks ...

Geared toward Italian/European cruisers, poor entertainment

Pros: Low price/good value, most staff, especially cabin steward and bar staff, itinerary. Cons: Entertainment was poor, buffet food was poor and very odd choices, customer service staff. Entire cruise geared toward Europeans. Specifics: Room: we had 2 balcony cabins and 1 inside cabin for my family members- the inside cabin was bigger than the balconies. No matter, as Marta, our ...

The good…virtually any cruise is enjoyable. this was no exception. the ports we visited were wonderful. the crew added positive vibes to our adventure. every one was cheerful and friendly. a couple of bartenders, anna and salvador deserve particular mention. our room steward, darryl was also first rate. The bad…ok, the food wasn’t bad. are golden corral or applebee’s bad? no, but it’s ...

The splendor of Italy (by bus)

I want to preface my review by stating that we don't care particularly for travel by bus, or "motor coach" as it is cutely described in the fine print. We especially don't like travelling by bus with our 18 month old child. Well if you pick this cruise, be prepared to travel by bus, a lot. The Itinerary Let's start with the obvious - this "Venice" cruise, marketed as starting in Venice ...

We initially booked the cruise for 2020 but finally were able to go on the cruise 3/7/2022. We enjoyed it! We chose this cruise because we wanted to experience a Mediterranean cruise and visit the spesific ports. Embarking was very efficient, check in was great, staff were friendly. Disembarking at the ports was not too much of a hassle. We could not go to Mykonos due to weather but a alternative ...

While the itinerary for this cruise is top notch, there is a lot that is really lacking luster. Everywhere you look on this ship, there is wear and tear - the carpets, the railings, the windows. It's a combination of cleaning (They have not been as diligent about cleaning the exterior windows it seems) and maintenance (fresh coats of paint needed everywhere). It's a weird thing to note but they ...

Last cruise on Costa

I have travelled on Costa before and picked this cruise for the ports and also I liked the ambiance on the ship. For any of the staff to go beyond their parameters seems impossible. To me an excellent customer service seems unattainable on Costa. This tired cruise line needs a complete rethink on what they are offering and higher management needs to give the front facing workers a bit more ...

Our first and last Silverseas Cruise

Sadly, having experienced the Silverseas all inclusive luxury we won’t be returning. Having cruised seven times previously with five different mid-range cruise lines; Cunard, MSC, Celebrity and others we thought we might blow our annual holiday budget, saved after many Covid enforced cancelations, on one top end cruise and be seriously spoilt. Other than the feeling of space on board the Silver ...

We booked this cruise in July 2019, made final payment in March 2020 3 days before lock down occurred. We were refused a refund and so we went along with the need to wait. Not a happy ending here. The departure port was changed from Venice to Ravenna, we were promised, in writing, that a complimentary shuttle would take us from Marco Polo airport to the ship. Well, after many excuses and ...
