Silversea is marketed as a pampering and luxury cruise line. However, my experience was not as luxurious as anticipated. A friend warned me that the service/food level had dipped in the last couple of years and we booked nonetheless. The cuisine was mediocre in most restaurants. Atlantide and La Dame were fine as far as the level of cuisine offered, and we loved our meals there, however we found the offerings in the rest of the ship to be less than...not what we expected. Our cabin attendant was very sweet and accommodating. The luggage delivery was late, and not his fault, but we boarded the ship at 2 and didn’t receive our luggage until after 6...beyond annoying. Also, we are used to the service level of Azamara where any food or drink wish was taken care of immediately. We didn’t get a bottle of Ketel One for our room for 2 days. And the level of in room cuisine was also mediocre and almost always cold. The only ports worthwhile were Montreal, Quebec City, Bar Harbor and Boston. The others were boring and lackluster. Silversea should consider paying the higher cost of a longer port stay in the other ports allowing for more time for exploration. Saguenay, Sydney and Baie Comeau didn’t have much to offer, unless you paid for an excursion. I will say the service in the restaurants was excellent. The staff is well trained and very accommodating, friendly. It’s just what they’re serving that we found challenging. We wouldn’t book another cruise on Silversea. Read Less

Wanted to cruise the changing of the leaves in Canada and New England. The ship is wonderful the crew is also overboard at helping. Our butler Oscar and out maid Evelyn were just superb. The weather was not the best, but such is life. The only downside to the entire trip was the tenders. The tenders on two occasions caused tours to be cut short, both times the scheduled departure from the ship was delayed almost an hour. The most annoying being Newport, we were scheduled to tour the Vanderbuilt mansion, but had to cut it short to get back for the final tender. Other than the tenders, every other aspect of the ship, crews and food was excellent. I will be sure to check any ports in the future that require tenders, especially if they are as expensive as the Vandebuilt one. If there is a tender I definitely will not pay to get off the ship.
