Review summary

Our itinerary was broken by the tail end of Hurricane Jose. Not only did we miss several ports, but were hammered by 12-16 foot seas for 36 hours from NYC to Halifax, Nova Scotia. Not Silver Seas fault but unexpected and miserable nonetheless

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Not a hitch, orderly and uncrowded. Bags arrived in a timely manner.

The dining choices were varied, the service was exceptional and the connoisseurs wine list was excellent any very reasonably priced.

Bad weather and small ship, but they tried valiantly.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
Best we have ever had...period.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our butler Dinesh, was terrific we thought he was the best. However, everyone else we talked to said the same about theirs. The Cruise Director Vicky was outstanding; visible, communicative and helpful. Another highlight.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
A Five star except the ship is outdated electronically in every way.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
lots of room, nice balcony weather permitting. We didn't use the tub and would have preferred that that space was dedicated to a larger shower.

Ship tip

Take a turn in La Champagne restaurant; it was a wonderful dining experience.
