This cruise was to be 5 star.  In reality it was a 4 star restaurant on a 2 star ship.  No AC in the room.  No AC in the gym.  Prehistoric gym equipment.  Missing tiles at the pool.  Green Astro turf from the 70's. No water filtration on board so the clothes went in dirty and came out dirtier. Thank God we never drank the water.  Service on-board however was great. Food was great.

Silver Cloud Is a Dream

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
Despite the Silver Cloud being Silversea's first ship, and thus the oldest in their fleet, it is a beautiful vessel -- more like a yacht. The public spaces are quite nice, and there are many of them for such a small ship. There are several dining options, from the main dining room (The Restaurant) to La Terrazza (an elegant Italian restaurant), to a gourmet dining room (Le Champagne, at extra cost). There is also outdoor, poolside dining. You'll need to reserve for anything other than the main dining room, and you'll want to try dining under the stars on the pool deck at least once. There is a very nice bar and theatre, and the Panorama Lounge is a great place for afternoon tea and piano music. There is a very nice library, a very well-equipped gym, a beauty salon/spa, plus a jogging track. We dont gamble, but there is a nice-sized casino, and we did spend a lot of time in the card room. The staff is excellent. The cruise director is a British woman named Judi, and she is quite impressive. Everyone on the ship is friendly and helpful -- even solicitous. We've been on many ships, and the staff on this one are among the best we've encountered.
