The Captain did an excellent job commanding the ship, and the ship was great.

Wanted to see Rio and the Christ the Redeemer statue. Also, having cruised the western end (Peru) of the Amazon, we were interested in seeing the eastern end. From a nature and wildlife perspective, the Peruvian Amazon was much better and far less commercial. The small cruise ship there, however, only held about a dozen passengers and was nowhere nearly as luxurious as the Muse. Regarding the ports visited, there were a few that were of little interest, specifically Salvador de Bahia, Fortaleza, and Alter do Chao. Rio de Janeiro was disappointing because of all the warnings given about the security and crime in the region. Aboard the Muse, we had an outstanding buttler named Oscar Ferrer. He was quick to make sure that we were always comfortable and content. He was personable, polite, reliable, and good company. Another person that was a pleasure to work with was Daniel Arribas, our Silversea cruise consultant. He made everything so much easier in planning our trip. You don’t want to lose him, so give him a raise.

Perfect.

Exploring Maica by Boat was OK, but it was very foggy at first, there was negligible wildlife, and only one person on the boat caught a (tiny) piranha.
