  3. Seven Seas Explorer
Having cruised with Silverseas on other trips I was a little apprehensive that no other could match their comfort, service and cuisine. After 14 days aboard Explorer I had no such reservations. 1. Although a larger vessel, the efficiency of embarking/disembarking for excursions was excellent and the ship rarely felt crowded, except perhaps the popularity of Sette Mare restaurant; 2. Suites (Concierge) were well laid out, perfectly comfortable and very well appointed - reading lights and coffee machine ++; 3. A very happy ship, which I attribute to good management from the Captain down. 4. Evening entertainment in the theatre were generally good; 5. All the restaurants excelled with the specialty ones worthy of a Michelin star, and not too difficult to get a table, particularly for dining later; 6. Included wifi and excursions were what finally decided me in favour of Explorer and sets the standard now for other cruise lines; 7. It seemed that every time we left the suite an attendant would materialise and magically make beds, change towels, tidy, clean and replace items. Cannot recommend highly enough. We will return!

Surprising perfection
