The only difference between the Silver Shadow and its two predecessors, Silver Cloud and Silver Wind, is its size. The line's reputation for quality and service, established with those two (which debuted in ...

Just returned from a Silversea Shadow cruise from Seward to Vancouver. Silversea is a luxury cruise line and I was so impressed with all aspects of the cruise. I loved the size of the ship. This particular ship holds only 392 ... Read more

Departed Tokyo on 7 May, ticket clearly marked Tokyo, but I am sure I was not the only person who went to Yokohama overnight pre-cruise. The fault of too much confidence due to too many cruises, I even went to the Yokohama Terminal, but it ... Read more

Itinerary and the reputation of SilverSea were our reasons for choosing this cruise. The itinerary was all we hoped for; the older ship and its management less so, based on flooded cabins. Embarkation in Hong Kong and debarkation in ... Read more

We embarked Silver Shadow in Singapore on 25 February 2016, the registration process being as faultless as expected. The ship has been waitlisted in all cabin categories for months with 370 passengers sailing, comprising 107 British, 82 ... Read more

This was our fourth Silversea cruise and we would list this trip as our least favourite. Silversea did a fantastic job of taking care of us but after two expedition cruises - the Arctic and the Galapagos - we found ourselves missing all of ... Read more

I will begin by echoing previous reviewers and say that the Shadow really needs attention. It is past time for refurbishment in most areas. This review, however is mostly a comparison of small ship cruising versus larger ship cruising. ... Read more

The Silver Shadow is a smaller ship and easy to get around. We had a last minute booking owing to the cancellation of our Mekong cruise. We had little time to fully research the cruise but as it was Silversea we felt confident it would be ... Read more

This was my 9th Silversea cruise but the first in Alaska. It was the final cruise of the season and the Shadow was continuing to Russia, Japan and ending in Hong Kong after our Inside Passage cruise. THE GOOD Service on board was ... Read more

This cruise is definitely for an older crowd. Younger travelers and those looking for a wild Caribbean type cruise to Alaska will be disappointed but for those of us who love scenery, good food, good wine and spirits and being waited on ... Read more

THE CRUISE: Seven days in August 2015 from Seward, Alaska, to Vancouver, British Columbia, on the Silversea Silver Shadow. The 28,000-ton ship was launched in 2000 and refurbished in 2011. Considered a premium or super-premium small ... Read more

We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise. The cabin was lovely with a "large" bathroom with two sinks, a tub and a shower. The beds were extremely comfortable. Butler service brought us drinks each night. The food was very good - ... Read more

What a disappointment. Sure, the ship was nice and there were plenty of people smiling at you offering drinks endlessly, but from the moment you got on the ship, it was a sales pitch, when it should have been more about sails. Take ... Read more

We decided to take a cruise to celebrate our silver anniversary. Good friends of ours always cruise on Crystal so we tried them first. I was put in touch with a travel agent in Las Vegas who never followed up with me on a request I ha, ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we had heard horror stories of crowded ships, mediocre food, congested boarding, tiny staterooms, lack of storage, etc. Therefore imagine our surprise when we stepped on to the Silver Shadow for the first time ... Read more

Having been on 8 Seabourn Cruises in the past, and taking the Silversea's Shadow on a 7 day Alaskan cruise we did have some trepidation. Although the physical sizes of the ships (Shadow and Odyssey class) dimensionally are similar; it is ... Read more

Our second Silversea cruise, this one being for two weeks visiting 9 islands, with 2 days cruising each way. This is an excellent way to start and finish with no rush at the end - pleasantly relaxing with plenty of optional activities on ... Read more

We toured Central America with exotic ports such as Belize or Trujillo, Honduras which is the advantage of a small ship. All in all the ship was excellent the only real flaw being Le Champagne. Apart from the freely offered caviar we did ... Read more

Upon trying to speak to representatives of the cruise line about the situation, first they ignored my calls, then they said that they were never contacted by me or anyone else on the cruise. Then, when I contacted the credit card company, ... Read more

I had not intended to lodge a critique on our cruise if the Silver Sea cruise line had acted honourably and answered some of the queries raised by our travel agent in Australia. On our return from the cruise on the Silver Shadow from ... Read more

I requested a refund for the cruise we just took on 12/20/2014 - 1/7/2015. Silversea clearly cheated their naive customers, who paid for the 6-star cruise but received a 2-star experience at best. - The food was terrible, and they ran ... Read more

Maybe we had been expecting too much, but Silverseas whilst perfectly OK does not seem much different to the other lines we have used, Celebrity, Cunard, P&O and Princess, in order to justify the higher price. The two main differences ... Read more

We have just returned from a lovely cruise aboard the silver shadow. The ship wasn't full and only 278 people on board so we were were very spoilt. Service was brilliant and the food was excellent, accomodation was very comfortable and our ... Read more
