We picked it for a special occasion and it started off exceptionally well with the initial boarding. No long waits - just straight on board and although the rooms were ready yet for obvious reasons, they had the restaurants and pool bar at full service for lunch and drinks while you waited.Butler service to all rooms was an enjoyable luxury and we had an amazing butler who couldn't do enough for us. Verandah Suite Category 4 (924) was spacious and comfortable with a large walk in robe which was unexpected. As a long of the passengers were older than us, the entertainment was more down key and could have used a little enlivening at times but the Entertainment staff were professionals and very talented especially the Cruise Director and the Resident Guitarist. We had dinner at La Dame and found it exceptional, the food was amazing. Slightly baffled by the fact the name hadn't changed from La Champagne and when I mentioned this in the mid-cruise feedback - it appeared to be rectified overnight at least on the restaurant doors. You'd have to be extremely fussy to fault the availability and quality of the food and drink on board. All the restaurants changed their menus daily and the food was freshly prepared. The staff worked hard to ensure that all passengers had a great cruise and we are looking forward to going on another cruise with Silverseas as soon as we can. They also have the advantage of other ships and other cruises around the world so there will be something for everyone.

Very Enjoyable Time

Cabin Review

Veranda Suite
Cabin V4 924
Our cabin had a balcony, a sitting room curtained off from the bedroom area then a large walk-in room with plenty of hangers, a tie & shoe rack and set of drawers. The bathroom had a separate bath and walk-in shower with a double sink bench. The toiletries were Bvlgari and there was a choice of another Italian brand or a Sensitive skin brand. The rooms were well laid out and comfortable and of a standard you would except of this type of small ship cruising. The bed was a queen and comfortable and all the towels were large white and fluffy and the bed linen of the quality you'd expect. All in all it was an excellent room and being in the middle we hardly noticed the movement of the vessel at all.
