We love to cruise with Silversea, so far I only cruised on Silver Spirit, my partner has been on Whisper before. As soon as we embark is like being back home. Loved the ship, maybe just a bit 2 small for me & missed some of the ... 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

We toured Central America with exotic ports such as Belize or Trujillo, Honduras which is the advantage of a small ship. All in all the ship was excellent the only real flaw being Le Champagne. Apart from the freely offered caviar we did ... Read more

I would give this cruise 4 out of 5 stars. The staff was great, wonderful attitude an service. Thought the charge of 256$ for internet a little excessive. My only complaint is that the food quality was very good. For a long cruise the ... Read more

This was our second cruise on Silversea, the first one was 10 years ago on a smaller ship. We had enjoyed that one and thought to return to the line after several great cruises on Crystal. We will not cruise Silversea again, I'm sorry to ... Read more

Just got back from 18 nights aboard the Silver Shadow. I had to write this review after reading other reviews. We enjoyed every aspect of our cruise. There is always room for improvement but none that got in the way of our enjoyment. We ... Read more

Upon trying to speak to representatives of the cruise line about the situation, first they ignored my calls, then they said that they were never contacted by me or anyone else on the cruise. Then, when I contacted the credit card company, ... Read more

I requested a refund for the cruise we just took on 12/20/2014 - 1/7/2015. Silversea clearly cheated their naive customers, who paid for the 6-star cruise but received a 2-star experience at best. - The food was terrible, and they ran ... Read more

I could probably write a novel about how many things were awful on this cruise. There were a few good things but they were vastly overshadowed by all the bad ones. I think I figured out that I could have paid cash for a Toyota Corolla for ... Read more

Wow, this has been the worst cruise we have ever been on and we have sailed over 15 voyages on other cruise lines. It would take a month to write about what went wrong. First and foremost, DO NOT spend money on this cruise line, what you ... Read more

We have been sailing on Silversea since 1995 and have over 240 days on board all of its ships. While the line is not what it once was--the food is nowhere near as good and the amenities of caviar, decent champagne upon arrival, and access ... Read more

The Silver Explorer is a nice ship with an excellent crew. The food was as good as on other Silversea ships which means it was very good. The service was outstanding. This was the least expensive cabin category and the cabin was more than ... Read more

Our experience on this newest and largest of Silversea's ships was truly wonderful. Our Silver Suite was a luxury of space and design. Our butler made the trip very pleasant as he was always on hand, seemingly anticipating our needs. ... Read more

Once we got off the plane and were greeted by the ground staff at LAX, we knew we were on Silversea! The representative stayed with us until we collected our luggage and then put us in a taxi to take us to the pier, but not before ... Read more

Embarkation in Ft. Lauderdale was a terrible disappointment. Rather than assigning guests a number, or somehow identifying the order of arrival, guests were simply crowded into a small space where seating was limited. While everyone was ... Read more
