First time in SilverSea very disappointed, definitely not was I expecting, Embarkation in San Juan went smoothly from there all went downhill, we book Cruise true American Express and got $ 1,500 dlls cruise credit on board the first order was to make reservations for dinner to our surprise ALL the Restaurant where book for the week we ended up having dinner at the same restaurant 3 times( The Grill ) and 2 times at la (Terraza), cabin was clean in perfect shape but above us was a restaurant " The Grill " so we had heavy noise until 11pm every night, next day we pick our tours and proceeded to reserve them to our surprise they where all book and all of them on waitlist, only one open up out of the five we selected. The port selection for this Itinerary was very poor except for St Barths & Tortola, I just don't understand how can a cruise line with this level make a stop in an Island like Rosseau, Dominica. Service on the ship was excellent but nobody went out of its way to assist or help beyond giving you the NO or you are on Waitlist.. Try to spend the on board credit on the Spa but with the same results it was book for the week and if an opening was available we will be notify, we where also unsuccessful, In General the ship felt very dull no activities at all, will not travel in SilverSea again.

Overall our cruise was delightful. The only downsides being: first, some of the ports on this cruise (Road town,Tortola and Rouseau, Dominca) were odd choices. They are both sadly still suffering from hurricane damage. My second issue was the awful wi-fi, even with the premium service we received for being in a Silver Suite. At times it simply did not work, and we were only doing emails and checking the weather and written (not streaming) news.. The explanation that it's tough to do wi-fi at sea is at odds with our very positive experience with wi-fi on Silver Muse about 18 months ago. Moving on to all the many positives: The Ship was in perfect, pristine condition. It was interesting to play "find the stretch spot". It was done so well that only with the help of a crew member could we figure out precisely where the work was done. And the additional room at the pool and Grill made for a better experience. I particularly like the new, Muse like, color scheme; others may disagree. Dining options are plentiful. We made reservations on MySilversea and all were honored. It was easy, however, to make some changes as the cruise went on. And, Atlantide and Indochine require no reservations. Even with a nearly full cruise (544 passengers) there were no problems making adjustments. The increased space in La Terraza was a mixed blessing. It was easy to get in there for dinner, but the relative intimate nature of the space is gone. And, I notice they no longer mention Slow Cooking in the description; sadly, the duck pappardelle was just OK. We tried Silver Note and enjoyed it. The duo (singer and pianist) were quote good, took requests andwere not at all too loud. The crew make the Silversea experience and this trip was no exception. They were uniformly charming and a delight to interact with. Read Less

Silver Spirit at Christmas time is a beautifully decorated ship, as well as one of the most pleasant to cruise. The extension added new cabins as well as enlarging the main dining room. No reservations are needed there, and it was never filled. The menu has multiple choices, but does not vary from day to day during a ten day cruise. There is enough to choose from in the main dining room, and also several other venues that are available at no added charge but require a reservation. None of the areas were ever filled to capacity during my lunches and dinners there. Only two areas have surcharges - the Japanese and French specialty rooms charge $40 and $60 for dinners. There is really no reason to pay extra when there are so many other dining areas included. The new pizza area on Deck 10 is terrific, and Hot Rocks at The Grill on Deck 9 continues to be a favorite. LaTerrazza on Deck 7 is an Italian restaurant at dinner time, and has a six or seven page menu all in Italian with English subtitles. Wine is poured freely at each and every venue - no need to ask unless you prefer a certain type. A red and a white are offered, and you are free to request something else - no problem! Everything is done with a flair - all services are top notch. Entertainment is not their main feature, but the singers do a good job with various types of music each evening. One daily trivia is well attended, and the no-charge Bingo games get a good turn out of players. All of the staff from room butlers to waiters do their best to accommodate your every wish. The cabins are much larger than on other ships of this size, with a walk-in closet that has a six drawer dresser w/safe as well as large hanging area. The bathrooms feature a large glass-enclosed shower and full tub plus lots of storage area. Your room fridge is filled with your choice of beverage at no added charge. Who could ask for more?

Off season time in the Caribbean is a great price. Age of guests is pretty much the same as Regent and Oceania. Internet went out for a day and the captain gave everyone a $200 credit. Nice touch. The wine was exceptional throughout. Not super expensive wines but in the $15-20 range, far better than the cheap stuff on Regent in Alaska. The food did hit a few rough patches. The main dining room was always excellent, but we were disappointed in Stars supper club and the Hot Rocks. Hot Rocks is where you cook your food under the stars outdoors. It was super hot and humid so that made is uncomfortable. The steak was nothing special. But the prawns were delicious and the largest I’ve ever seen. The salad, potato and vegetable was disappointing. Stars club had a great pianist and singer but they tried to do too many things in their tapas and they weren’t all good. I would have preferred they let you order your own tapas rather than have things cool and made ahead of time. Le Champagne, the pay extra restaurant, and Seishin were both outstanding. Entertainment was a bit lacking. Due to the internet problem, the movies didn’t work, so we got half way through and had to quit watching. The only regular TV was news channels. The jazz singer was the best evening entertainment and you could go in there even if you weren’t having dinner. She was great for after dinner drinks and music. We had the beds made as twins, and since they are a queen when put together, they were very small. We did ok but I’d prefer a king bed, broken into twins. You don’t get that on very many lines though unless you are in a fancy suite. We did get upgraded 3 levels, although all that does is put you on a higher floor. Service was absolutely excellent everywhere. No one ever left our wine glass empty. We had trouble with that on Regent in Alaska. There were only two boutiques and they didn’t have anything casual - all high end jewelry, clothes and perfume. I like some simple tshirts and silver jewelry which was missing. Room - same size as Regent and Oceania. Larger shower which is nice, and a tub which we don't use. Bulgaria amenities but you can have Ferragamo or a non- allergenic option. Comfortable chairs that recline on the balcony. Room not as fancy interior as the others but they are redoing this ship next year. It's fine just not noticeably fancy. 2 tvs in the mirrors with over 300 movies for free (until it didn't work). No sports channels - just news and movies. Internet is free and not fast but ok for email. Beds comfortable but small (we have them made as twins). Choice of pillows and blankets or down quilt. AC works well. Great lighting for makeup. Extension cord readily available for c-pap machine. The ship is like a comfortable yacht. Only 2 shops. Expensive art work for sale on the walls but no dramatic staircases etc like other ships have. We like it fine but there isn't a wow factor other than art. Food is better than Regent and Oceania across the board. For example, the lobster is fresh Maine lobster, not frozen or Caribbean as it was on Regent. Foie gras on menus although I don't like it. Great sushi. And service is outstanding. The free wines are much better than Regent Alaska cruise. The markup on the special wines is not high at all but we've been happy with the wines provided and they don't try to push you to buy a more expensive one. Entertainment is a weak spot. The excursions are very fairly priced ($59 for a 3 hour snorkel trip) so they don't gouge on that like Oceania does. Spa is expensive as all the at sea ones are. Read Less
