  1. I am worried, the last we EMBT was "Upon returning to the suite we noticed that serious measures have been taken to secure things in the event the weather does indeed turn rough. More tomorrow..." that was on Saturday? Where are they? How are they and how is the Whisper???
  2. A wonderful two weeks from Tower Bridge to Stockholm. Our fifth Silversea Cruise, first on the Wind. Crew were fabulous, food best we have encountered on a ship. MAIN DINING ROOM PARTICULARLY GOOD. Bar staff is fabulous, friendly and anxious to serve. Our butler Diepke was always anxious to help. A negative for us was the early morning sailout from Tower Bridge. This was a non event, yes it was 5am but it warranted champagne, coffee and maybe a poolside breakfast. Nothing was available until 7:30. I was told the timing was not convenient for the crew who work long hours. Not a luxury response. Greatly enjoyed the ports, did not do any ship tours. Highly recommend Dancing Bear Tours in SPB, reasonable and wonderful to deal with. The ship is somewhat tired and our sixth floor hallway somewhat smelly, but... nothing is perfect and i would gladly return tomorrow.
  3. Disembarked yesterday, wonderful Cruise, great crew and very good food. Is the ship looking a little worse for wear, yes - but that applied to most of us on the cruise too!! Highly recommend.
  4. Currently on the Wind and had a fabulous day in Riga. Ship is great, food is great, crew even better. Is it perfect?few things in life are. Silversea cruise #5, having a wonderful time fortunate to be here.
  5. We board on Wednesday. Grateful for the generally positive comments about the ship.
  6. Thank you for the positive words on the Wind we leave in three weeks for the Baltic and while looking forward to the ship, our first trip on the Wind, concerned about some of the critics. We have always enjoyed Silversea and are hopeful that it is not going to change too much.
  7. Our tour with Dancing Bear is not until late August but, I have customized a tour for two people and found the owner prompt, efficient and very helpful and willing to put up with my qwerky wishes! We are looking forward to our tour and will report back
  8. Doing a Baltic Cruise in August and looking for background reading material. Any suggestions of guidebooks, fiction or non fiction that you found useful as background preparation for the cruise?
