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

The raison d’être for booking this cruise was to visit Myanmar (Burma), a long held ambition, and once Aung San Suu Kyi indicated that tourists should come,” but be mindful of where they spent their money”, .i.e. ... Read more

We had great expectations for this alleged 6* cruise ship but we were disappointed in very respect other than with the 'waiter & room service staff'. The ship is very 'tired' with the furniture in our cabin (542) showing serious signs ... Read more

Over the years, we have cruised for over 240 nights on all of the 5 Silversea ships combined with the exception of the Explorer-type ships. It is very sad to report that the last two cruises, back-to-back (25 days aboard), that we just ... Read more

This was our sixth cruise, but the first one on a "6" star ship, and the first on a small ship. Our initial exuberance was immediately impacted by the embarkation process in HK - basically you have to drag your bags through a shopping ... Read more
