We have sailed Silversea's before and switched to Crystal. Decided to try the Silver Spirit since we had not sailed her before. The ship is beautiful and the service from all crew members was excellent. However, we missed a few things ... Read more

Since it was my first time in a cruiser, I find it difficult to make a comparison. Our butler Dorothy and our room service Hilda were perfect. They did their best to make us comfortable and to meet our wishes. Other crew members were ... Read more

Breakfast and lunch selections were no different than what's served on Royal Caribbean--which is one fifth of the price of a Silversea cruise: way too much quantity and not enough quality. Dinner is outstanding, but not in the same ... Read more

Having not sailed Silver Seas for some years it was with some interest we ventured back having sailed with Regent the past four times over the past year. For space this ship really is hard to beat almost like a private sailing on ... Read more

My wife and I were excited to try the newest ship in the fleet. Overall a very solid experience, however there are a few changes that are unwelcome. Pluses: Excellent internet speed. We purchased the full cruise high speed package, and ... Read more

Having travelled with Silversea on numerous occasions we had high expectations from this Brand New 6 Star Luxury Cruise Liner. But the reality was Guests were used as 'Guinea Pigs' and treated with disrespect. We were never made aware ... Read more

We chose this cruise due to its unusual itinerary, the opportunity to go on a safari, and the stop in the Seychelles, a place my wife and I had long wanted to visit. Also, having sailed on Crystal and Seaborne several times, we wanted ... Read more

I chose Silversea for the Cape Town 10 night round trip cruise because it was one of the very few lines that do this route - and we had previously sailed on the Silver Spirit when it was first launched and had enjoyed that experience. ... Read more

We picked this cruise because of the small ship and itinerary. The last cruise we were on had 4100 passengers and it was just too complicated in every way! The Silver Wind had 279 passengers and almost as many crew. Everything was easy! ... Read more

We came on the ship as basically first time Cruisers for the World Cruise 2017. Jan 6 to May 3, San Francisco to Monte Carlo. We had no complaints about the cabin or the ship, it is a little dated. Many of the repeat cruisers were ... Read more

Overall a very nice ship in appearance and space to passengers ratio was good. Will not be too judgemental but really expected more for the price and hype of advertising. Embassy suites is nice to stay at night before embarkation---Tip: ... Read more

So I chose EXCELLENT over VERY GOOD because it was in between. Here are a few of the highlights. Silver Shadow - Second time on the ship. We did Alaska in May. Yes, SS is a bit tired, but still ranked #14 in the world. Veranda ... Read more

I chose this cruise for our 30th anniversary. We chose it somewhat last minute and reserved the last cabin available about 6 weeks before sailing date. The goal was a no expense spared luxury experience. What we got was a nice trip, better ... Read more

We chose this cruise as it was my mum's birthday, and we normally like to go on beach type cruises (last year we were on Silver Wind around the Caribbean). So this year we thought we'd try something different to our normal holiday ... Read more

Off season time in the Caribbean is a great price. Age of guests is pretty much the same as Regent and Oceania. Internet went out for a day and the captain gave everyone a $200 credit. Nice touch. The wine was exceptional ... Read more
