Our first cruise, Silversea was recommended by friends. Liked our cabin #751. Good location, roomier than I expected. Good size balcony. Excellent butler. All staff werevery friendly, helpful. Restaurant staff very attentive and accommodating. Excellent breakfast buffet and restaurant menu. Dinner menus monotonous. Should have several daily specials. Room service daily menus should be available all day in all restaurants. After 2:00pm had to order room service if you wanted lunch. Most excursions got back to the ship after 2:00. The entire ship is too air conditioned. I was cold all the time. Broughtclothes for hot Mediterranean weather not cold. Had one sweater with me and wore it all the time. Had to go out on deck or balcony just to get warm. Would like to have a few shows late afternoon or evening, too tired after a full day to stay up until 10:00 for a show, Was looking forward to the casino but there was never anyone there. Don't want to play Blackjack with just the dealer and no one else in the room. There should be more than one washing machine and dryer on each deck. We had to run from one deck to another to do laundry. Fernando, the Cruise Director, was an interesting guy, very friendly, always remembered your name. Thought the train shore excursion on Mallorca was kind of boring. The Old Villages excursion on Ibiza was a waste of money. Total joke. A couple of cafes a bar and a church. Glad we didn't book anything on Sardinia and Elba. Did enjoy the Menorca excursion that excluded cheese tasting. Pisa and Florence excursions very well done. All excursions we took were very organized, guides made sure everyone was accounted for and could find their way back to meeting place at end. The public spaces on ship seemed a little tired and stodgy, need redoing. My husband and I enjoyed most the cruising into and out or ports.Liked sitting on the balcony and watching. For our first cruise I was dissipointed, my husband enjoyed it more than I did. Maybe I'm just not a cruise person. Felt like I was living in a bubble, a safe space. End.

Cabin Review

Cabin 751
More spacious than I expected.The same small piece of paper was under the frig the whole cruise. Got to be a joke every afternoon to see if it was gone or not. Never was vacuumed or picked up. Other than that the cabin and bathroom seemed clean enough.
