Our previous experience with cruising has been with Cunard in both Princess and Queens Grill suites. We wanted to try a small ship to see if it suited us better. We are younger than the average passengers at 47 and 38, we don’t ... Read more

The shore excursions are a rip off, we did a fishing trip where we never had a chance to even touch a fishing pole. Because they put 6 of us on a tiny boat and pulled names who ever got to go first fished until they caught a salmon. ... Read more

This was our second cruise with Silversea and we wouldn't have thought they could improve on perfection but they did! Being onboard was like being in a cocoon where our every need was catered to. It was almost as though our butler and the ... Read more

We have sailed in the Med numerous times and wanted to experience the Adriatic. While we planned on traveling during the summer months few ships offered great locations literally every day of the voyage. This was our first time on Silver ... Read more

The ship is in a very poor condition and needs to be repaired very soon. Rusty everywhere, ceiling falling down. Not sure why they call their staterooms suites. Is it for the "butler" service that they offer? I would ... Read more

Overall I planned this cruise a year in advance and it was definitely worth the wait. There have been a lot of negative Silversea reviews lately and I want to say I was not disappointed. I continue to be very impressed with Silversea ... Read more

After carefully considering all options for visiting the Galapagos, including reading some of the not-so-stellar reviews of this cruise, I decided to give Silversea a try. I took my mom in July 2016 as a retirement gift. I must say that ... Read more

We sailed on the Silversea Wind round trip from London to the Baltic Region. The sail out and sail in was a real treat as they only do this a number of times a year from London. We are not new to cruising and have done both large and small ... Read more

This is our second cruise on the Silver Shadow. My husband and I were on this same cruise 3 years ago and loved it. This year we came back with all the family (including grandparents.) What a difference do 3 years make! On our first ... Read more

I chose this cruise so I could get a balcony on a smaller ship that sails up the fjords of Norway. This was the best cruise experience I have ever had, and I have been on quite a few cruises. The standard room is so large! balcony, ... Read more

Loved the ship & the cruise. We had previously done an Antarctic cruise on the same ship and the Arctic cruise held a few surprises for us. But it was all great. The land excursions in the Arctic are VERY short. Sometimes as short ... Read more

I booked this cruise over a year ago, specifically for the itinerary and size of the ship, allowing access to smaller fjords. It was more than I usually spend, however, from all reviews, it would be well worth the extra cost. I am a ... Read more

NOT worth the money!!!!! Not as advertised- food quality was far from excellent, Staff was rude and snobby, food was subpar, stays in port were far too short, watch out for the "diamond expert" selling jewelry at outrageous ... Read more

First time crusier, wonderful experience! We had a group of 6 from 11-78, accommodated all our needs. Staff couldn't have been nicer! Was a little concerned about the younger passengers in our group but we spent so much time off the ship ... Read more

We were interested in an Alaskan cruise that included a stop in Sitka, a place we had never visited before. We also wanted a small, luxurious ship. The Silver Shadow is a beautiful ship, but it is showing its age. It needs refurbishment ... Read more

Do not even consider a Silversea cruise. It is a totally regrettable experience not to mention the added pain of the exorbitant cost. The representations in Silversea's literature and website couldn't be further from the reality. We ... Read more

Despite some "uneven" reviews, our travel agent assured us that Silversea would deliver the kind of luxury experience that we were looking for on this trip. She was right, the other reviewers were wrong. The ship - and ... Read more
