Silverseas Discovery Cruise, Maldives to Dar es Salaam, the worst cruise EVER! Old (leased) ship is rusty, orange water coming from taps, stinks from diesel and crew is doing maintenance on ship as passengers are on board. Supposed, "drinking water" on ship was full of bacteria and many passengers were ill for days, (myself included). Food was NOT "fresh local cuisine" as advertised but frozen. Fruit was never ripe but hard and tasteless. Cuisine was "winter european dishes" prepared by Italian chef with no cooking skills. Lunch on deck was the same menu of frozen meat or fish with chip for 17 days or Pasta. (Pasta with 30° heat???) Doctor on board barely spoke english and it was questionable if he was even a doctor at all. He spent most of his time on the top deck sunning himself in a skimpy speedo and hitting on women! And if you needed him, his answer was either you ate too much or he did not know the answer. Why was there not a doctor with experience in heat and ocean travel as should have been? NO extra special excursions were offered, nor on-board activities or events planned and many "advertised" events and tours were not visited or were cut in half. Cruise was mostly 20 hours a day at sea with very limited time at sights, (only 3-4 hours, if that). Pre/post package did not deliver nor was anyone there to meet us. For the extremely expensive price of this trip, it was a VERY big disappointment. Terribly organised trip, low quality, (more like a youth camp, rather than a quality cruise). It seemed as if Silverseas did not want to pay for docking the ship for a day or night and spent most time as sea when not needed. Example; Zanzibar to Dar es Salaam is only 1 hour journey yet this ship took 7 hours! Unacceptable! Made a complaint to travel agency and to Silverseas over 2 weeks ago have not received a reply. All passengers on this cruise agreed it was the WORST cruise they have taken and would never book with Silverseas again!! Take heed and NEVER book this cruise lines nor ship!!
