I've recently returned from a spectacular cruise on the Silver Shadow. This was my first time sailing on Silversea and I can say with certainty that it won't be my last. It was an amazing experience from start to finish. It was a complete ... Read more

We were first time Silversea cruisers, chosen firstly for the itinerary and second to experience 6 star cruising. Overall we had a pleasant 16 day cruise though honestly we are more comfortable on large cruise ships. Really enjoyed the ... Read more

We had only 1 week that everyone was available, and Silver Sea Shadow was the only sailing available. We booked 5 Terrace Suites because there were no partitions between the cabin verandas, and we could all walk back and forth to other ... Read more

First of all I disclose that I am a Seaboard fan. If Seaboard offered trips to Alaska we would have certainly booked with them. Anyway - this might be an opportunity to experience Silverseas - a chance to impress us. They didn't! It's ... Read more

Starting with the positive: All the people who work on the ship are hardworking and helpful, they really aim to please. The ship itself is fine - middle of the road in terms of new/old. Things are in basically good shape. The excursions in ... Read more

We spent two nights at the Rosedale on Robson Hotel in Vancouver before embarking on the Silver Shadow. The hotel, and our visit to Vancouver, were both outstanding. This hotel has 21 floors, and our suite was on the 20th floor, so we had ... Read more

My cruise started in Anchorage. Boarding ship was seamless and since I happened to be the only person boarding at that moment, I was escorted aboard by one of the ship's officers. Lunch was in progress so I opted for the restaurant - which ... Read more

Silversea gets a high rating so we expected a lot, but the company and "Shadow" fell short. Our cabin number was unavailable until we embarked.We found the ship deck plans quite confusing for such a small vessel but that is very common at ... Read more

This is a review of the Silver Shadow cruise from Anchorage to Vancouver. It will also be a bit of a comparison of this cruise with Regent Seven Seas, simply because that is the line we have cruised most often and comparisons just happen ... Read more

We had cruised only once before on RSS as my husband prefers Do it Yourself travel. However, we LOVED everything about SilverSea. Just a few examples of the service: 1) The staff remembers your name and greet you by name constantly. ... Read more

Embarkation Having been through Vancouver before and faced major queues for emigration, we were pleasantly surprised to be the only ship in port and upon arriving at US emigration found 6 bored operatives who almost fought over our ... Read more

The Good Having cruised with other operators, the on-board experience at Silver Seas is well worth the extra cost and, aboard the Silver Shadow, it is well worth springing for a Silver Suite. These suites are spacious and luxurious ... Read more

We just completed the Alaska - Inside Passage, Vancouver to Seward trip, our first on Silverseas, and "hats off" to Silverseas and the crew of Silver Shadow. We absolutely enjoyed every moment. Our cabin (Veranda Suite - Deck 8) was ... Read more

Just finished our cruise from Vancouver to Seward and overall we had a very good experience. The good parts of the ship are the amount of people on the cruise which is very low. Additionally, we never had to wait for anything and dining ... Read more

Our Cruise on the Silver Shadow allowed us to see some opportunities for this prestigious line to move into the next evolution of luxury cruising. I feel that with some small tweaks they could really be so much better. Was anything ... Read more

We embarked Silver Shadow on 23rd February 2012, in Fremantle Perth Australia. Embarkation was smooth, and an extra nice little touch, the mandatory form passengers must sign regarding Norovirus, had already been printed by Silversea, ... Read more

Ship Silver Shadow still beautiful inside and out and nice to be on. It handles the seas very well. All well, except for the expensive art on all the walls of the public areas for sale all over the ship 24/7. Even outside the bathrooms. ... Read more

Pre-Cruise It was difficult to find out specific information about the cruise ahead of time. The Silversea website is not helpful. I wanted to pre-reserve/pay in advance for a formal dinner in the Le Champagne restaurant. I eventually ... Read more
