We chose this cruise as it was my mum's birthday, and we normally like to go on beach type cruises (last year we were on Silver Wind around the Caribbean). So this year we thought we'd try something different to our normal holiday ... Read more

Off season time in the Caribbean is a great price. Age of guests is pretty much the same as Regent and Oceania. Internet went out for a day and the captain gave everyone a $200 credit. Nice touch. The wine was exceptional ... Read more

My wife and I went with another married couple and we can honestly say that we all thoroughly enjoyed our holiday with Silverseas. We were warmly greeted when we came on board the ship at Barbados, and that warmth was a feature of the ... Read more

I went on Silversea's Silver Wind for only the 2nd time in November 2016. The first time was 20 years ago during her Inaugural season. Considering she is nigh on 20 years old the state of her upkeep was fantastic. My suite was of course ... Read more

Wanting to discover Vietnam was the main agenda point for us ,but at the same time adressing other sites in Asia. Silversea was selected based upon the above plus its reputation. They did not disappoint us . At Singapore embarkation was ... Read more

I love photography and choose my destinations based upon the best opportunities to practice my hobby. Having recently lost my husband I needed an easy way to travel to a variety of locations on my own. Silversea was offering a ... Read more

Silversea was highly recommended by a good friend who is very experienced. I traveled alone, had a lovely veranda cabin with a roomy stateroom with a walk-in closet, bathroom with bath and shower, 2 TVs, sitting area, mini bar, 24/7 room ... 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

The cruise through the Caribbean Islands was lovely. Be aware the ship is quite small and book a mid ship cabin as to make sure there are not any rough days. We sailed from San Juan to Ft. Lauderdale with stops at many of the islands. The ... 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

We were really looking forward to our so-called 6 star cruise. It was only 6 star, in our view, if the ratings were out of 10. The service was, by and large, good: especially the suite butler. However, the food was distinctly very ... 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

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

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

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

We took Silversea’s 16-day Silver Shadow cruise from Valparaiso to Buenos Aires, January 25, 2015. With the exceptions listed below, it was a very enjoyable trip to a little travelled, rural part of the world. Having taken an ... Read more

We did the Baltic and on to Southampton on Whisper and enjoyed our first experience with Silversea, although the food was all very Italian based, which can become tiresome. We found Seabourn to have a greater selection on their menus and ... Read more

We were a little worried about Silver Sea after having a bad time on a cruise about 5 years ago (poor dining room service several times too many). This cruise was just the opposite: everything just went as well as anyone could wish. My ... Read more

Having completed 6 Cruises with Silver Sea I'm afraid there is no going back to "traditional" size Ships for my Wife & I. The "Whisper" is a perfect size with 340 pax to 300 Staff. SS offer every Facility that you would expect of a 6* ... Read more
