All food is included in the price as is entertainment and a Captains cocktail party. There are some speciality restaurants e.g Gary Rhodes, where a supplement is charged but the normal restaurants are more than adequate. The main restaurants are open for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. There is also the self service restaurant and other snack places which means food is available almost 24hours. Tips are paid in cash to your cabin steward and restaurant waiters. The current recommended rate is £2.90 per day per person total. Bria.

There are some resturaunts that have a cover charge that can cost up to £25 pounds per person, per meal. Room service is no longer free, it has to be paid for, but there is plenty of choice without having to pay the extras. Tips are not included, unless its in a deal from your travel agent,some ships take a set amount out each day per person. You dont have to do this you just cancel it on the first day of your cruise and tell the reception desk that you are going to tip individuals. Tipping is at your discretion. P and O give you information on tipping if you book.

All food is included in on all cruises. The exceptions are some "speciality" restuarants where you have to pay a cover charge and you pay for Ice cream outside the restuarants. Tips are extra and depending on the cruise they may be put on automaticaly on to your cabin bil.

Where this ship is innovative and different is with the rather exciting launch of the Worlds first Go Karting track at Sea.This is no ordinary go Karting track your little ones and adults alike will be a...

Silversea was not meant to be!

By Barbara Hopley

Barbara Hopley's blog

On Monday 22 May I was booked to go on a ship visit of the ‘Silver Whisper’ by Silversea Cruises. We get invited to see ships all the time but do them on our days off as too busy to take time out of a working week. That’s how dedicated I am to see as many ships as possible as so much easier to sell when you have seen them.I had been looking forward to seeing this ship as have never seen a Silversea ship, it had been booked for a few weeks and I made my arrangements at home ...
