Review summary

The Silver Muse is beautiful. Interior is simple elegance, comfortable and relaxing. 

The beds were amazing and the food was outstanding.  The Veranda staterooms were all that I expected. We didn't use the outdoor veranda or dinning venues because the weather was chilly and it was not comfortable. In the summer months it will be awesome. The reservations for dinner situation was confusing and difficult to at first. Once we got cruising we were able to contact the restaurants directly to obtain reservations.  Not what I would expect for a 6 star cruise.  They need to tweek that. La Tarazza should be made into open dinning. I personally don't want to plan every night in advance. We enjoy large tables for dinner to socialize and meet new friends. The way it is set up now you don't really have that opportunity so you dine alone. If you make friends and want to dine with them you have cancel made reservations for all involved and try to get a larger table. That is a task.

Food and Dining

Reservations alone every night is not my idea of fun. If you are a couple traveling alone you don't have the option to sit with others. La Terazza should be left for open dinning and more family style with the large tables.

Boaring. Main entertainment should be earlier, 9 or 9:30pm with an after party planned

Ship tip

Travel when you are older. Average age is 75. I think they are trying to entice the younger crowds but the entertainment just is not that good. Plenty of bars but not that much to do in the evening. When planning your vacation look at the country holidays to see when the towns could be closed down.
