Having done two prior cruises with Silversea it was an easy decision to book a suite (deck 7**) from Vancouver to Tokyo via Alaska and Russia, believing it would be a great adventure, and it really was (mostly), but the inability to ... Read more

My husband and I just finished a fabulous cruise on the Silver Shadow. Our son lives in Japan so it was a great way to go there. The crossing was good except for one rough night. The service on the ship was perfect! The butlers were ... Read more

We chose silver seas because it was smaller and we believed that we would be able to get to locations that bigger ships could not. The trip began badly with jewelry hawker lecturing us on the train about not asking stupid questions and ... Read more

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

We have sailed with Celebrity, Regent, Azamara, Seabourn and Silversea. Having sailed with Silversea for the first time earlier in the year (on the Whisper), and thoroughly enjoyed it, we thought we would introduce friends to the company ... Read more

This was our 4th cruise with this line. As soon as we embarked, (which went smoothly), we learned that this was the last cruise of the Silver Cloud before it went into drydock. A portend of things to come. Our butler tried hard, but was ... Read more

My husband wanted a repositioning cruise and I didn't want to be at sea more than two days at a time. Given that we decided to cruise less than 90 days before departure this was the best option. We'd never sailed on SilverSea but friends ... Read more

We chose this cruise upon the advice of friends who were also going with us..total of 8 adults. Checking in was fine, but once on the ship, disappointed in the presentation of the staff. The ship was old and worn, the staff did not seem ... Read more

This was our 3rd Silversea cruise and our best yet. We have previously cruised on the Silver Spirit as well as the Silver Cloud and there is a special charm on the Silver Shadow that I feel the others were lacking. The overall feel for ... 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

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
