After so many BAD reports about the Lirica we cancelled and lost our deposit (our choice) and sailed in February on board Silverseas SILVER SHADOW. We consider ourselves very lucky in finding this website which allowed us an insight into the Lirica. The Silver Shadow was wonderful and certainly is a 6 star ship. We were pampered from going on board to leaving and had no complaints whatsoever. We shall in future only sail with Silverseas especially when they offer such last minute discounts.
