Not having sailed on Silversea I can authoritively say I will never sail with them. Booked a cruise on Silversea for Oct. 20. Stops included Beirut, Cairo and Damascus. I thought that was exciting until war broke out. I figured without combat pay I'll pass. Notified my travel agent and Silversea about 95 days in advance that I cancelled. This resulted in a very long wait for a partial refund and they charged a $400 penalty. I will get it back but the hassel is amazing. The people in Florida are worthless or worse as is my ex travel agent.
Can you imagine these people and the way you'll be treated after they have all your money and full control. A word to the wise etc.
