Ship Facts: Silver Shadow Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Silver Shadow Deck Plans
Alaska to Tokyo in 16 days

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 food and service in The Restaurant and had one very nice meal at La Terrazzo one evening, other than this found breakfast and lunch on the ship fairly average, particularly after 16 days. This is of course just our opinion based on the fact that this was a 6 Star cruise line and we had expected something more?

We found a little piece of heaven in the Panorama Lounge early each morning with a wonderful young barista, Paul, who made a splendid cappuccino and long black (or espresso) for us, and we completed breakfast with lovely fresh muffins and pastries and a plate of freshly sliced tropical fruits. Silver Shadow has by far the finest coffee we have ever had on board a cruise ship!

We thoroughly enjoyed the excursions we went on though felt truly embarrassed for those people at Petropavlovsk who hadn't been advised by anyone from that scarves or head coverings are required for women to enter Russian orthodox churches. We felt this was the ships duty to let people know this as we had learnt from a previous cruise to St Petersburg - all local customs were spoken about prior to disembarking for an excursion.

Really enjoyed the wine and food lectures - these gentlemen tried particularly hard to bring us information that related to the ports that we were travelling to or had just departed from.
