  3. Silver Muse
We chose this cruise because of our long history with Silversea. Our last cruise on The Wind showed us a very aging ship and amenities that worried us about Silversea's commitment to excellence. The Muse was a wonderful experience although the lack of intimacy of the smaller ships could be felt. Looking to our future cruise selections, we may need to look at competitive lines to maintain the small ship experience. We appreciated the additional restaurant selection and the food quality was improved. The casino was very small but appeared to meet the needs of the ship. As mentioned, more should be done to help passengers with limited mobility to explore ports of call and there should be a selection of "no cost" excursions to help explore the ports without additional fees. These can add up quickly and bring the cost of the cruise into non-competitive range. We were offered an upgrade to a Silver Suite which did cost us 2000.00 but we felt this was well worth the price. We did not received any ship board which in talking with other passengers, was unusual especially the British guests who seem to fare much better than we did. Most of the entertainment was scheduled for 10pm.. way too late when morning excursions start between 8 and 9. Earlier shows allow you to enjoy the entertainment then to dinner and then off to bed.
