The ship was shabby- worn out dirty carpets, grubby and dirty upholstery in the public rooms. The staff were obviously demoralised and indifferent to the passengers.
The worst feature was Silver Seas arrogance in taking us to horrible ports - 2 days in Richards Bay - a coal export port in South Africa. Fine if you enjoy coal dust with your meals on deck.
Second class entertainers and a Cruise Director who seemed bored and was just going through his usual patter.
Dirty sun loungers on the very small and crowded sun deck. Worn out, thin and torn deck towels
Grossly overpriced tours arranged by the ship.
Very poor meet and greet - mainly concerned with getting a swipe of your credit card !
No meaningful meet and greet after returning from shore visits.
Food - good but not exceptional for a cruse line that pretends to be at the top of the cruising league.
I am not alone in this view - it represents the view on many fellow passengers that I spoke to on the cruise that left Cape Town this January.
Fair - but the net curtains had not been washed in Avery long time.
Waste of time.
Coal dust part !
Good - but grossly overpriced.View All undefined undefined Reviews
