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

This was my 9th Silversea cruise but the first in Alaska. It was the final cruise of the season and the Shadow was continuing to Russia, Japan and ending in Hong Kong after our Inside Passage cruise. THE GOOD Service on board was ... 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

Our preferred cruise line is ALWAYS Crystal, but we were looking for a particular Baltic Sea itinerary, and we loved that this cruise left and returned to Tower Bridge in London. My husband and the couple we were travelling with were ... Read more

We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise. The cabin was lovely with a "large" bathroom with two sinks, a tub and a shower. The beds were extremely comfortable. Butler service brought us drinks each night. The food was very good - ... Read more

Silver Cloud ties up to HMS Belfast opposite the Tower of London. Finding the pier is not easy but once you have, the service is impeccable. We boarded at about 2.30 pm and were shown straight to our suite on deck 5. We were delighted ... Read more

We thoroughly enjoyed our travel on the Silver Cloud. The service was every bit as it should be, plus some. Our butler was very attentive and served almost as a secretary where necessary. We live in Asia and travel about 4 months out of ... Read more

First, I have to say I am so tired of reading negative reviews on the Silver Cloud. Who are these people? Professional complainers? We just returned from the same Baltic cruise several of the other reviewers were on and found it to be a ... Read more

The itinerary can't be beat. Sailing up the Neva River into the heart of St. Petersburg and sailing through the Tower Bridge in London was exceptional. But the dining really took away from the trip. We were told by some frequent ... Read more

We decided to take a cruise to celebrate our silver anniversary. Good friends of ours always cruise on Crystal so we tried them first. I was put in touch with a travel agent in Las Vegas who never followed up with me on a request I ha, ... Read more

Things we liked: ---Small ship with only about 250-300 people on board. Could get closer into the city than other larger ships. ---Our cabin was a Veranda Suite although I don't know which level Veranda Suite. Deck 6-mid ship, a ... Read more

I read the previous reviews with a sinking feeling in my stomach. To have a 50% overall good rating on a cruise that is certainly not cheap made me anxious. However, now that I've returned from that cruise I have to say that some people ... Read more

We just spent 10 days on the Silver Whisper going from Copenhagen to Stockholm. While the ports of call were everything we dreamed of life on board the ship was so far from our expectations. For the most part the ship is as advertised ... Read more

I appreciate that some people like the massive cruise ships that are on offer, especially as all seem to be vying for your trade with on board credit, free drinks (very limited), massive facilities, lots of entertainment; the truth is I'm ... Read more

This Silversea Cruise was an excellent experience. The boat was top class, the staff were exceptional and the food very good. The ports of call were well organised with information of each port being provided via a nightly news letter ... Read more

Just returned from 9 days on Spirit Venice - Istanbul. Lovely people/guests, great staff, and wonderful ports of call. Entertainment - missable. Shore excursions very expensive - cheaper to do it on your own. The furnishings, being ... Read more

Enjoyed the May 31st, 10 day cruise from Rome to Venice with some caveats. Embarkation was quick and DH and I had a lovely light lunch at the pool grill. Sail-away party was disappointing due to unresponsive servers at the pool grill. We ... Read more
