  • Sail Date: Aug 2018
  • Destination: the Arctic
  • Cabin Type: Veranda Suite

We had a bucket list wish to travel to Greenland. We had been to Iceland previously and wanted to experience more of these two beautiful and remote islands.

The Silver Cloud is a comfortable and sleek ship with all of the amenities of the larger ships (no casino and no shows though).

Awesome specialty restaurants to choose from, especially our favorite, the Grille (hot rock cooking at its' best).

The crew service was outstanding in every way. Our butler and attendant were especially attentive and provided the best service we have ever received on board any ship.

We enjoyed our first use of the spa services and were pleasantly surprised by how nice the service was!

We also wanted to suggest that the disembarkation tour of 5 hours, was not the best use of time for us. It was too long and too confined in the rustic artic buses with all of our carry on luggage. Also, restroom facilities were very limited, which made us uncomfortable. We were really spoiled being on the ship and had a rude awakening when we disemabarked.

Definitely enjoyed all aspects of the cruise until the very end and when we did our post trip hotel. We had lunch on the 5 hour tour and then our flight was delayed so much that we missed dinner completely and about 50 of us arrived at the hotel both hungry and exhausted, only to find no food available. To top it off, someone neglected to arrange for our transportation to the airport (which was included). We had to find a way on our own and it made our last day of the trip terribly stressful.

Even with the end of the trip not going so well, would we do it again? Absolutely! Loved the SilverSea Silver Cloud and it's crew a lot!!

Thank you for asking our opinion.
