We recently returned for a 15 day cruise over the holidays on the Silversea Wind. We were very disappointed with all aspects of this cruise. The ship is old and in dire need of updating. Our air conditioning in the room did not work, ... Read more

The last few holidays, we have traveled Cunard and loved it. Wanting to embark from the U.S., we decided to give Silversea a try. The marketing suggested upscale and the price certainly reflected upscale. From the outside things looked ... Read more

This was my first cruise with Silverseas and unfortunately it was not what I expected ! The ship was very " tired " and tatty in places, it is in my opinion ready for either a complete refurbishment or ready for retirement from ... Read more

We are a retired couple in our late 50s and choose itineraries offering a mix of ports and sea days. With this in mind we tend to judge our cruise experience by whether the ship itself offers us the mix of food, facilities and comfort we ... Read more

My wife and I took our first Silversea cruise exactly a year ago: a ten-night western Caribbean cruise on the Cloud. We enjoyed it greatly, but felt that the Cloud was a bit too small (296 passenger capacity), a bit too old (1994), and a ... Read more

Having recently cruised on Oceania we were expecting high quality food on Silver Spirit- regrettably that was not the case. Dinner service was extremely slow and food quality was mediocre at best. Food preparation was marginal (uncooked ... Read more

We recently returned from our first cruise on a Silverseas ship. We booked a Veranda room and were very satisfied. The veranda itself isn't large, but it was sufficient. Our room was nice, especially for a cruise ship. The bathroom was ... Read more

I was very interested in taking a Silversea Expedition cruise because I am an adventure traveler from way back. My travel adventures have included mountain climbing, rafting, backpacking, bicycling, canoeing and more. When I am traveling ... Read more

We traveled with our adult children (separate cabins). We enjoyed the size of ship and the shore excursions. The ship staff was not that good at keeping track of passengers or helping those with mobility issues on the excursions. The ... Read more

My wife and I have sailed on about 40 cruises including some high end cruises on Crystal, Seaborn, Regent, and Azamura. This was our first cruise on Silversea and it compared nicely with the other luxury cruises we have been on. ... Read more

Enjoyed every single aspect of this excellent ship and cruise. Main dining room service and choices were superb. If you liked a particular wine served days ago, waitstaff would bring it. There are 24/7 staples for unadventurous eaters. ... Read more

This was my first time cruising with Silversea. After spending 3 nights in Istanbul prior to boarding I was ready for the cruise. This was not my first time cruising solo, but it was my first time on an ocean ship vs having done a couple ... Read more

This is my 4th cruise on Silver Spirit which is probably my favourite ship of all as it has my preferred tonnage for a balance of facilities and privacy. I cruise on the same ship a year ago and again this time I am extremely happy with my ... Read more

Shabby experience. We were really looking forward to a high end cruising experience. Did not happen. Two out of five excursions were canceled. Prices of excursions were very expensive and should have been included. One out of the three ... Read more

We cruised on the Silver Cloud from Southampton to Barcelona and was actually two cruises booked back to back - our 7th and 8th respectively on Silversea. Both cruises were called L'Ecole des Chefs by Relais & Chateaux and featured ... Read more

As longtime luxury cruisers (we've been regulars on Seabourn and Silversea and earlier on NCL, Holland America and Royal Caribbean), our recent experience on the Silver Wind was, in a word, "MEH." Our Venice check-in was ... Read more

This cruise is definitely for an older crowd. Younger travelers and those looking for a wild Caribbean type cruise to Alaska will be disappointed but for those of us who love scenery, good food, good wine and spirits and being waited on ... Read more

Silversea promtes their cruise ships as five star plus - definitely not the case with Silver Cloud. We had previously sailed on the Silver Shadow and had been very pleased with quality of food, service, entertainment and guest lecturers. ... Read more

This was our first cruise so we wanted to do it right. We picked Silversea because of friends' recommendations and extensive review of our options for a Mediterranean cruise. On balance our choice was perfect. The ship was immaculate, the ... Read more

Once again Silversea delivered. Having booked onboard last year to do back to back cruises from Venice to Istanbul and then into the Black Sea, our itinerary had been changed due to the political situation in Ukraine. Whilst this ... Read more

I thought it might be helpful to compare the 2 as we were on the Seaborne Sojourn last summer. Ship/cabin Sojourn is newer ship with a contemporary understated elegance. It remained me of a Four Seasons hotel. Silver Wind is an ... Read more

THE CRUISE: Seven days in August 2015 from Seward, Alaska, to Vancouver, British Columbia, on the Silversea Silver Shadow. The 28,000-ton ship was launched in 2000 and refurbished in 2011. Considered a premium or super-premium small ... Read more
