Ship was nice ,cabin was very nice and ship personal were very nice. Some amenities seemed to be missing though . For example no cold towels or drinks when returning to ship after tours as I saw carnival ship passing out when we were docked next to it . There were no silver sea bags or back packs in cabin. Reception desk did not know that a Greek customs officer would be on ship at last port before going to Istanbul .

I have travelled with Silver Seas on two occasions now, in 2012 onboard the Whisper and in 2013 onboard the Spirit. Both cruises were excellent, the staff goes above and beyond all expectations, extremely courteous, helpful and friendly which is what I look for.

My recent trip on the Silver Sea Spirit was very enjoyable. The ship is clean, the personnel are courteous and always there to help. I did enjoy the Butler and his kindness to me. The food was very good. I do feel as though they could have had more lectures on the destinations. It would have been nice to have someone tell us a little of the history of the islands that we were going to stop at. I enjoyed it so much that I have already booked next years Christmas Cruise.

We were somewhat disappointed with the Silver Spirit as our expectations of our 5 Star resort ship were not met. The ship interior and exterior has really shown its age. Our cabin size was lovely and we only one challenge with the bed. If I was using the dressing table, I would have to move to allow my husband to go back and forth. The TV in our room was very poor quality and we had challenges getting it to turn off completely at night. The food was just okay and nothing to rave about. We at 4 of their restaurants on the ship. The service wasn't top notched. Lot's of inconsistency in their performance in the restaurants. The main dining room, The Restaurant, offered the identical menu at breakfast that you could get with room service. We were seated by tables that had not been cleaned off. The entertainment on the ship was good. The services were adequate. Our ship excursions were excellent and managed very well.

Silversea cruise on Silver Spirit Venice to Venice 9/11/15-9/18/15 was better than first cruise I took with them in Feb. The Pool Grill continues to be a bad dining venue. I had one lunch which was awful---chicken caesar salad---dry tough chicken, too much dressing on wilted lettuce. The service there is very hurried and haphazard ---- just like on Silver Cloud. La Terraza was excellent and so was The Restaurant. Room service breakfast was nearly flawless. My arrival for the cruise was delayed almost 12 hours. When I landed in Venice I had met another Slilversea passenger and after we finished processing lost luggage claims we met the transfer she had booked. It was now 8pm and only 2 hours before when I had been advised the ship would leave Venice(inexplicably it departed at 11:30). The Silversea rep at the airport refused to allow me to join the transfer although I had Silversea ID and said the charge could be added to my ship account. She cited some security issue

Just returned from our Panama Canal cruise. It was wonderful! Great personal service and a once in a lifetime adventure. We'd recommend Silversea to all who want a truly luxury experience with pampering and class. The all inclusive package makes it so enjoyable and they don't skimp on anything at all, it's awesome. Are there things they can improve on? Of course, who can't? We wish they would eliminate their "jackets required for gentlemen" requirement for their "informal" nights and that they would eliminate "formal nights" altogether. But some people love that, I suppose. And WiFi should be free, after all this is 2016, right? We enjoyed it so much that we've already booked our next cruise on Silversea!

Nice Ship but too big for us.

By: Diana

Reviewed on: 06 Jul 2017

We had previously sailed with Silversea on a smaller ship and enjoyed a better level of service in the public areas such as the dining rooms and the bars. This ship felt somewhat "institutional" to us: Example wine offerings were the white or red wine of the day with other options only made available if we pressed for them. We finally connected with the Head Sommelier who was more accommodating. We also felt it odd that one of the bath product lines we were offered were labeled in German, a language we do not speak. The Laundry Room appliances were also labeled in German, leading to great confusion. Another odd issues include: Not being able to use the hairdryer in the bathroom. The wall unit in the bedroom encroached on the walking area near the bed resulting in the waiter banging into the woodwork every time he brought a tray to the room. Bath towels had strings hanging from them not quite up to the the luxury linen category we expected.

This was the first time travelling on Silversea. I found the Spirit to be a nicely outfitted ship, very traditional in appearance.

The weather played a major role in our disappointments. In Quebec it turned cold with wind, rain and snow. The next port of call was canceled, we stayed in Quebec an extra night. The next port was closed due to storm damage and the ship proceeded to Sydney Nova Scotia for two nights. Not much to do or see in Sydney. In Bar Harbor Maine one of the sites visited on tour was closed for the season. The pre cruise documentation I received stated I could order from the Room Service menu or the Restaurant menu, when I requested dinner from the Restaurant menu I was told it couldn't be done. The dress code was unclear to a first time Silversea guest. I had on a sweater, open necked shirt and slacks on an informal night. I was told I must have a jacket on and I couldn't be seated. I wasn't offered a jacket and was told to go to my cabin an put one on. The ship was great, the staff friendly and accommodating. The food and service was outstanding. Our butler Mark was excellent!

Butler service was exceptional, attending to our every need. Stateroom attendants were prompt and most efficient in ensuring our stateroom was always well maintained with all amenities. The crew, whether it was in the dining rooms, poolside, lounges, theatre were always ready to look after our every need. So very kind and courteous to not only us but my 89 year old mom, who was travelling alone, with us. All of the crew were quick to help her out at any time. The entertainment was extremely enjoyable, offering many different genres of music and dance. The selection of menus for food was vaste and quality was exceptional. Thank you so very much for a wonderful cruise experience aboard the Silver Spirit.

Great upgrade on the refurbished ship

By: Mandy

Reviewed on: 12 Dec 2018

Have done many Silverseas cruises always fabulous. The food and wine selections are terrific. I like the different restaurants for variety, especially like La Dame well worth the $60.00 per person for a treat or special occasion. The new bathrooms with the large rain showers in the new part are fantastic. Staff well trained and very accommodating . Went on this cruise in the Caribbean just for R and R stayed mostly on board. The entertainment wasn't up to their usual standard, although the singers had terrific voices the didn't sing songs age appropriate ! This was our first Silverseas cruise with 4 children under the age of 5/6 ,the kiddy pool was huge and took up too much space on the pool deck! Love children as grandparents . Didn't pay to go on a cruise with small children, who often wanted their way.

Ship and staff were fine but entertainment was dated and lacked variety. Minimal onboard activities other than bingo and trivia and a few lectures, with no enrichment activities. It did not live up to it's overall advertised ratings in food or ambience in comparison to other similar lines.

50th anniversary

By: Dr. Anthony Nicoletti

Reviewed on: 04 Feb 2019

The service, which is so highly rated was a complete disappointment. On the first night we met with the head of the restaurants, telling him, as was noted on our reservation that Anthony is celiac. None of the restaurants were really prepared. The worst was that they left an anniversary cake in our cabin, not gluten free. Had we not checked Anthony would have been severely ill. They ran out of gluten free beer after one bottle. They didn't know their gluten free wine list until the last day or so. We did not get any canopies or snack, all of which were available if anyone cared to check. It took 4 or 5 inquiries to set up the renewal of vows. When finally done it was very minimal. We have had anniversaries on other ships, not rated as high as this, and they did much more to celebrate our anniversary. When Anthony requested mouthwash and tooth paste he was told to buy it. Minimalist hotels provide these items. The carpet in upgraded cabin was stained.

Cruise the Spirit

By: Sparkle

Reviewed on: 15 Feb 2019

Our cruise to the eastern Caribbean was enjoyable. There were several things such as larger suites which impressed us about Silversea. The crew was without exception friendly and helpful. We would have liked pre-dinner dancing and a movie theatre. We had mixed feelings about the specialty restaurants; LaDame was excellent but we would not pay the up charge more than once. Sheishin’s menu and quality of food was tops. Silver Note didn’t hold enough interest for us to try. Indochine was fine. The only thing we disliked about Atlantide was the fixed menu; we prefer at least a few new items at each dinner. Loved La Terrazza. The shore excursions were just okay; however we appreciated being treated like adults when it was time to meet up with the tours. For instance, there was none of that “meet in the lounge and herd off to the bus”! Each passenger was told where and when to catch the shore excursions. If you missed it, it was on your shoulders.

"We had been on a previous Silversea cruise and was so impressed with the service. There were many service issues on this cruise. We had difficulty getting service in La Terraza for breakfast. There were so many wait staff but no one seemed to be helping anyone. I would have to raise my hand to get someone to clear dishes, refill water glasses or get more coffee. Our butler was inexperienced, so that could explain some of service issues there. The boat and our cabin were beautiful. Other areas of the ship offered excellent service.
