Beautiful ship, wonderful crew, all the tasty wine and Champagne you can drink, great shore excursions, being treated like royalty for seven days - what's not to like?!
This was our second cruise on Silversea and we will never try anyone else ever again - once you have had perfection it's hard to go back to less.
Always love my days on Silversea. Have almost 500 sailing days with this company and don't see myself going anywhere else. Service, food and atmosphere were excellent.. Southern route on crossing was terrific - not a white cap all the way across the Atlantic. Stops in Morocco were good as well as the Canary Islands. This is preferable over a stop in Madeira or Bermuda. Furnishing, etc. could use a bit of a face lift on the Spirit and disembarkation in Barbados is cumbersome - too long a wait at the airport. I would take the same trip again in a heartbeat.
Wonderful cruise, especially the itinerary. Every port was thrilling ! The ship an staff were warm and caring. Special dietary requests were always handled properly.
Luxury Only and Silversea need better communication. One in our group was celebrating an anniversary. Their "gift" was delivered to the wrong room on the wrong day. Birthday of another in our group was noted on the wrong day. My butler said Happy Birthday to me one day - it was not my birthday and Luxury Only knew that. My profile was clear that my birthday is still to come. When 2 of us arrived on ship no one informed us we needed to check in at reception. We found out from others. On the last day the return passports were given early to some and not allowed to be given to others - some had to sign for them - others did not. Printed information from ship had required departure times different on different printed sheets. Did not get weather information as stated we would in morning notices for 3 days. Never saw the captain. I just felt no one was on the same page and it depended on who you talked to if you received the correct information. Also, very offended over the prebilled Silversea charity donation without warning. Yes you were able to deny it but that made one look cheap. I think this was tacky of Silversea to even do it. Huge debacle over excursions that has yet to be resolved. Cannot believe Silversea dragged their feet and the blame was batted back and forth between Luxury Only and themselves. The poorest customer service I have ever seen.
