Why Choose Silver Wind?
  • Pro: All-inclusive pricing, fabulous crew
  • Con: Minimal onboard entertainment, small casino
  • Bottom Line: A luxurious cruise experience without being pretentious

Silver Wind Overview

Silver Wind is one of the cosiest and most intimate ships afloat, with beautifully designed suites and inviting cabins and public rooms.

Silver Wind is a small ship -- it took about five minutes to work out where everything was! For me, that was one of its big selling points, as it offered a very friendly atmosphere. The all-inclusive drinks policy also does a lot to promote that friendliness, especially if you are cruising alone. 

If you like to do more than sunbathe, read books or eat -- and if your perfect holiday includes a huge casino, schedules packed tight with enrichment activities, and silly pool games -- this is not the cruise for you. 

Silver Wind Fellow Passengers

There were 213 passengers on my around-India cruise from Chennai (Madras) to Mumbai, and they had come from all corners of the earth. By far, the biggest group was from the U.S. -- 80 passengers -- but there were Australians, New Zealanders, British, Germans, Belgians, Spanish and various other nationalities. Many were retired or close to retirement age; 140 were past Silversea passengers. Only one couple had never cruised before.

Silver Wind Dress Code

Silversea has a mixture of formal, informal and smart-casual dress codes. For formal nights, women should wear cocktail dresses, evening gowns or trouser suits, men should have tuxedos or dark suits. Informal means dresses or trouser suits for the ladies, jackets for the men (ties optional). Our 11-night cruise had three formal nights, four informal nights and four smart-casual evenings.

Silver Wind Gratuity

Tips are part of the all-inclusive package on all Silversea cruises. There is nothing extra to pay, and the crew do not expect additional gratuities.

From the moment we arrived until the final day we were treated special every day. From the butler to the bar tenders and all employees we encountered knowing our names after just 2 days on the cruise. Dining was always good with lots of ... Read more

We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise. The cruise went from good to excellent around day 6. The itinerary was fun and the host cities – especially Killybegs and Greenock welcomed us warmly even if the weather didn’t always ... Read more

I chose this cruise because I had been on this particular ship the year before. I like its size (less than 300 guests). And because the crew was so fantastic - and they still are. I was delighted that several of the crew remembered my ... Read more
