Marcie at Affordable Tours was great and the trip itself was the best cruise we have taken ,,,great food and great service and wonderful room !!
everything was what we expected...smallpassenger group..big staff
Silversea never did provide useful and requested details of the Peru pre-cruise excursion, but it did turn out well. The only exception was that they failed to include us on the list for airport transfers to and from the day hotel in Guayaquil and said we had not paid for these transfers or the day room - which we had.
Silver Seas is better than it was 4 years ago when we left them for Seabourn. Suites are roomy and nice . They have 2 restaurants where you must pay extra for dinners, and that we did not like. Entertainment is so-so.
We were on the Silversea Cloud to Antarctica and it was a trip of a lifetime. It was our first time on Silversea and a first class experience all the way. A trip to Antarctica requires lots of flexibility in scheduling and Silversea has that down to a science. They went out of their way to make sure we experienced all we could - we saw all kinds of seals, thousands of penguins, and several whales. Our weather was perfect and our pictures are extraordinary. We highly, highly recommend a trip to Antarctica, but make sure it is on a small enough ship to allow for shore expeditions.
