My wife and I sailed on the Wind in April, from Monte Carlo to Rome. She is beautiful with understated elegance just like her sister ships. If reviewer you mentioned likes gaudy, then perhaps why they were disappointed. Nothing appeared "old" or "tired' to us. Didn't take specific notice of the TV as if was rarely on. We had a fantastic time with the wonderful staff and crew. Check out thread "Wind in top form" on page 3 of threads for reviews from June 2017. I would highly recommend and expect you will have a wonderful cruise. Bon Voyage!Thank you for your reply. I will check that thread.
Can any recent Wind travellers give any more info please?Merly,
We are due to sail on the Wind in May next year, our first with Silversea. I saw that it had a refurb last year but now am somewhat worried by a review from May this year. The reviewer says that it lacks some of the nice touches you expect on a luxury cruise, it looks tired, the TVs are old and outdated etc. Can any recent Wind travellers give any more info please? Am I going to be disappointed?I see you are an RCI D+-- as are we-- our first SS was the wind last March and upon our return, we booked 2 more cruises with SS. We found the Wind delightful, the staff second to none and the condition of the ship top rate. The differences between large ship and small ship cruising are substantial all favoring the Wind class ship on SS. we are hooked and are not likely to leave SS anytime soon-- We really liked our Seabourn cruise but we Loved the SS cruise
