We took this cruise because of the time. The ship was great! The cabin was wonderful! The Butler was special! Most of the meals were wonderful. Our dinners were really made wonderful because of Karolina, the head wine steward. She was a delight! Breakfast was not up to par. The service at breakfast was VERY slow! Painfully SLOW! The shore excursions were lacking! It appeared that the ship wasn't aware of how poor some of the excursions were. The walking tour at Trois Riveres was so bad that most people left the tour before it was 1/2 done. The tour at Syndey, walking tour, was also way below par! Again, many of us left the tour & went on our own. The gift shop was the worst I have ever seen on a ship. (This is our 8th cruise). The gems were (some) lovely but the prices were extremely inflated. This is the first time we haven't purchased something from a ship gift shop. It lacked things were that would be needed on a trip, I.E. a hat, a sweatshirt, a poncho for the rain, a scarf, etc. Would we go again? Never on this itinerary! Never to stop in Syndey, Canada. Why do you stop there? There is absolutely NOTHING worth seeing or doing in Sydney! When we disembarked in Montreal it was a free for all! VERY UNORGANIZED. It was cold, rainy and windy. Some of us were left to fend for ourselves in the elements. We finally found someone to help with our luggage & paid him for his help. It was much appreciated. We took the tour of Montreal, again, not up to the Silverseas standards. When we arrived at the Montreal airport it was once again a free for all. Very disappointing. On another note, the hotel in New York, The Parker is also below the expected standard for Silverseas!

Not all that was expected

Our cabin was lovely. Our butler, Oscar, was the BEST! It was especially nice to have a shower & a bathtub.
