This was our fifth cruise with Silversea. Ports were excellent and dates worked for us. Thought the food was average, dinner service was ok. Suite (848) was not good because of a constant vibration in the wall whenever the ship was underway. Something wrong when the wall is vibrating all the way up on the 8th deck. Makes you wonder about the engines/props. Could not read in bed because the headboard was vibrating so bad. Sleep was interrupted if the pillow moved next to the headboard. The ship (Silver Spirit) seemed different from other cruise ships we have been on. We would have a lot of questions before booking on the Spirit in the future. The excursions and (especially) the guides were very very good. The smaller ports appealed to us and we were very happy with the Virtuoso tour of Kotor. One of the best excursions we have had with Silversea. The outdoor grills were very good but the restaurant food was average. The buffet was good and the lunch service was quite good. Deck service was excellent. Room service was excellent and the housekeeping was excellent. The Silversea connection with the Bauer Palazzo in Venice (2 nights prior to embarkation) was outstanding. A terrific hotel experience.

Cabin Review

Cabin 848
There is a constant vibration in the wall next to the head of the bed when the ship is underway. This was very unnerving and I could not read in bed and my sleep was interrupted if the pillow moved to the head board. I would not sail on the Spirit in the future. What causes this vibration all the way up to the 8th deck? It feels like there is something not right with the engines/props. Otherwise the room is quite nice. Plenty of room and housekeeping was excellent.
