Q – It has been about ten years since we’ve sailed the Cunard Line in Queen’s Grill accommodations. Now, dear friends are wondering if we might join them in Europe on the Silversea Muse. It appears to be a nice ship but we are concerned about continental cuisine overload. It seems like a lovely line but we can a small ship really have choices of dining options that might appeal to the culinary curious.?

A – You are going to be fine. The Muse is the largest ship in Silversea’s fleet and carries just under 600 guests. She has a fair reputation of providing several eclectic dining choices including gourmet fare, a sushi bar and a pizza stall just above the swimming pool. Technically, there are eight dining venues if one includes luncheon spots. Many guests comment about the variety of dining on this ship as  positive feature. If you want fewer than 600 guests and an unusually high proportion of dining choices, we think you could not do much better than the Muse.
