2017 World Cruise
2017 World Cruise
Pros: Outstanding loyal crew, exceptional service, intimacy you cannot achieve on many larger vessels, plenty of creature comforts in even the lead in Vista suites on Deck 4 . Generous size as Veranda suites (287 sq ft) just no balcony- walk in closets, butlers for every suite level, Veranda Suites are 345 sq feet with the veranda, My favorite suite is Silver Suite which are 701 sq feet, the wideness makes it like a little condo with separate bedroom, dining table bar, 2 TV areas. Shuttle buses are included free in most of the ports. This ship is dated, but it has got the right formula for intimate comfort. Love the open seating in Dining room, and the other restauants are easy to secure a reservation, not like other ships, where couples are begging the maitre d for a reservation as a $50 is slipped in the pocket. Not necessary here you are usually accommodated. The enrichment speakers are excellent, a statesman, a music director and jazz great John Altman, former BA Concorde Captain Rick, Roger MCGuinn of The Byrds-Turn turn turn. Legendary brilliant Cruise Director Fernando, Tracy Apple Ipad classes, The Voices of Silversea entertainment, with an operatic focus yet versatile, may be the best group of young talent on any ship. The list goes on.
Cons: Ship needs some TLC in drydock, pool decking issuws, pool furniture, some modern updates needed, Fitness class area too small for comfortable classes, needs some new plumbing and water tanks.

Stockholm, Talinn, Estonia; St. Petersburg, Helsinki, Copenhagen, one day at sea
Pros: Very nice ship with two large dining venues and two lounges. Staterooms are roomy and bathroom is large. Service is terrific.
Cons: Food doesn't live up to billing and Relais and Chateaux connection. It's good, but not great. Menus are limited. Wine service is generous with lots of choices and non-stop pours. Cabin carpeting and fabrics are looking a bit tired.
