Rooms were great. Ship was first class with no feeling of bEing crowded. Only problem was dinner reservation process and no advance notice of how to work the system to get a reservation in the Champagne upscale dining room. Silversea needs to find a way to enable those who want this experience to do so at least one night. More of a can do attitude is required and staff needs to be "can do" rather than "that's somebody else's job."

We had booked Oceania last y ear on our own. When Michele heard this, she called and told us to PLEASE switch to Silver Sea. She was able to get us the same trip ,less one day to Berlin, for less money. Michele explained that the staff, the food, the ambience, the size of the ship ( 390 passengers), and our overall experience would be better. Michele was so right. The staff was caring, friendly, helpful, and most of all, professional. We danced, watched live shows, listened to live music, ate and drank our way through 10 memorable days on the Silver Whisper. The food was plentiful and we could choose from several different restaurants. We met several couples while on board, and laughed a great deal.. The ports were good and the rain and cold weather didn't deter us from enjoying each adventure. We have already picked out our 2016 cruise on Silver Sea and that says a great deal. Thank you Michele Benigno for talking us in to Silver Sea.

SilverSea not all we expected

By: RM

Reviewed on: 15 Sep 2014

Have never cruised on SilverSea previously - was on the Whisper in a Grand Suite. Last cruise was on Seabourn Quest Many thing about the SilverSea experience were excellent - great staff, food in the dining room and appreciate smaller ship cruises. Have to say general maintenance of the ship and overall cleanliness was disappointing. Our suite even had signs of ongoing water damage. The ship did not look like it had a total renovation within the last couple of years. Again we had a good vacation on SilverSea but at the super premium level your expectations are higher. Next time it will be Seabourn for us.

Simply The Best

We love Silversea. Period. End of story. I've extracted a promise from my husband that we will take at least one Silverseas cruise every year....... and after our most recent experience on the Silver Whisper, I think he's committed! You know the cruise is a success when you have rain on 9 of 11 days, get held in port in Halifax for an un-planned extra night, sail thru an honest-to-goodness Nor'easter (with enormous swells), and STILL have an incredible time. I vote for Silversea every time!

Best Cruise Yet


Reviewed on: 03 Jul 2016

People taking this cruise with us to northern Europe, as well as the ship's crew, tended to be welcoming & friendly. Cruise Director Vicki van Tassel was enthusiastic with a sense of humor. We liked her show, "Ship Happens," where I was pulled from the audience to participate. Familiar faces from other ships included Maria from Madeira, Lew from Arizona with lectures about ports, & Olena from Ukraine, now working at the concierge desk after mixing excellent drinks on a previous cruise. She ran after us to say goodbye when we departed at Copenhagen. We felt a familiarity with Silversea rooms & restaurants even though this was our first time on Silver Whisper. Nolan & Alvaro provided us with excellent care in their roles as Butler & Asst. The waiters, such as Elaine of Malaysia, went out of their ways to serve us well with the finest foods & drinks. Daily emphases on quality of accommodations, service, & dining made our entire experience memorable.

Started with the wrong foot

By: Gypsy530

Reviewed on: 17 Jul 2016

I recommend this cruise line with some reservation. .. We wanted a Baltic trip with a small ship, always heard the "hype" about Silversea being the "best in the industry". We did not start with the right foot, we found front of the house staff in need of customer service training. I was getting upset with can-not do attitudes during the first 2 days. Service as a dance between great and terrible. When we received the beginning of the journey survey I decided to give very specific details of my frustration - including inability to confirm La Champagne restaurant, The Restaurant Hostess, wine selections, sommeliers attitudes, etc. The Management in charge of those areas quickly got back to us and handled the situation to our satisfaction.....Why is it necessary for the customer to get to this point? WiFi service was terrible - tech officer hard to find to resolve issues; menus too repetitive; Suites/ Cabins were spacious and kept very clean.

We have been sailing with Silverseas since 2006 and keep returning year after year. Obviously they are doing something right! The itinerary is always interesting and the food and entertainment exceptional, but what Silversea excels at is the personal touch. The staff immediately know your name and daily interactions with everyone from the waiters to the front desk people are always pleasant.

Silversea Doesn't Care

By: Sherlock

Reviewed on: 29 Oct 2017

We choose this ship for the specific itinerary as we had never been to the ports on the first half of the cruise. Due to the weather we sat in NY for 2 extra days not knowing what was going on and then the captain took us into a dangerous storm that lasted for 2 more horrible days. We understand that weather can change things but we felt they didn't care and when we reached Halifax (a shortened day) they had cancelled our tours and basically dumped us without much help. Spent an extra day at sea and missed 3 of the ports we were looking forward to seeing. Since we weren't scheduled for some of the other ports our tour transportation was very uncomfortable. After emailing Patty about our concerns in Gaspe, the manager on the ship listened to me and our compensation was a bottle of champagne on a ship that our alcohol was included in our package....There has been no other response from Silversea.

This cruise was a trip of a lifetime and Silversea delivered! We immediately felt comfortable, at home, and spoiled. We traveled with over a hundred other world travelers - it felt like we moved into a winter apartment; inclusive with butler, steward, laundry, excellent meals - including room service, entertainment, education, world travel, dancing, adventure, and so much more. The ship is intimate; we had about 300 passengers throughout the voyage and the crew were all kind and personable.

Cruising is nice

By: SandyP

Reviewed on: 26 Aug 2018

Our family cruised for the first time ever on the Silver Whisper. We enjoyed it for the most part. A few things however could have been improved. First, we sailed out of Venice and when we arrived from the train station it was very hard getting transport to the port. We had 4 large luggages. Silver Seas should have been better at communicating details to port not just where the port was. Excursions where just ok but they ended at 12 or 1 pm. If you went back to the ship lunch service was almost over and you had to rush to get lunch. If you stayed in the port you caught siesta time and there was nothing to do. Often we set sail at 5 or 6 pm just as the stores opened up again but we had to be back on the ship. Food and service was great. Not enough of a vibe on the ship in the evening. Quite boring especially when they did their musical act at 6:45...right at dinner hour. Those nights there was nothing to do.

Opportunity areas include age of cruisers were around 80 years old (a little old and slow for us, in 60's), music on TV and on ship was also then set for this older crowd, food on deck for lunch and dinner could be improved, rarely saw Capt or other officers (thought very odd), ship catamaran excursion on Antigua was not good (too crowded, snorkeling poor), and more shade around pool needed (as people claimed the best spots early, and kept them most of the day even if not there). We felt Seabourn ships and cruisers ages more conducive to meeting people and our needs/wants.

Good times

As expected, we had an excellent time on board the Silver Whisper. Silversea had never let us down, in fact I do believe the service across all venues was even better than our last cruises...if that is even possible.

The service is excellent and the restaurant "La Dame" is first rate. I like the size of the ship and the relatively small number of passengers. Room service is also excellent. I can't say enough about the staff/crew. Absolutely perfect. Although the ship is very comfortable it due for a refit and should come out of the refit identical to the Silver Shadow with very good improvements in the public areas and cabins.

Whisper not

This latest cruise with Silversea was disappointing. There seems to have been a lowering of former standards...including the butler and cleaner ,bartenders on deck 9, and the cruise director has missed her calling to a Disney ship! The food was very good, and the service was good except at the gala dinner on New Years Eve...the lack of experience among the servers was glaring. The service on the pool deck suffered much the same lack of experience/knowhow. The entertainers in Panorama lounge were very good musicians,the special entertainment was only so so. The guest speakers were certainly substandard as well. However, I think all the negatives are unusual,probably due to the dates involved. I certainly will plan to cruise with Silversea again.

Excellent service, very good food and drinks. Quality of entertainment was below the level of previous cruises, Christmas and New Year's events did not match the experience of former voyages. Lectures were good and informative. Wifi did not work properly. Land excursions varied in performance with some very good and others non-acceptable. The ship's itinerary and on-time schedule could not have been better

First-time experience with Silversea

Our first, and, hopefully, not last, experience on Silversea was amazing. From the competency of the Captain and staff, to the amenities, to the wonderful fellow travelers, we enjoyed our brief but amazing time on board. The cuisine was superb, and we enjoyed so many onboard activities, including Trivia, the lectures, our fabulous Cruise Director, Fernando, the entertainment, swimming pool, our terrific butler and cabin attendant. Nothing but smiles all around from top to bottom, morning to night!
