This is a Silversea "Expeditions" cruise, so a smaller ship and not quite the same level of luxury as the bigger Silversea ships. But a fabulous cruise with two "ports" most days, one early morning for 3 hours or so, ... 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

My wife and I have been on 10+ cruises with Royal Caribbean and P&O with the children and nearly always had a good time - this was to be our first cruise without the children so we wanted to pick an "upmarket, no children, fine ... 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

Flights to Athens and home from Nice were arranged by Silverseas and went without a hitch. No sign of any demos in Athens on 30th September and we were welcomed on board with a glass of bubbly while we checked in. Our butler was on ... Read more

My husband and I had a great expectation of Silver Sea Cruises after having them so highly recommended from our friends who had sailed with them several times. This was our first time on Silver Sea and we were not to be disappointed. ... 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

Having previously cruised with Silversea on three occasions (about 50 days) we cruised to Alaska on the last cruise for 2010. While some aspects of the cruise were up to previous standards, most aspects were disappointing and some were ... Read more
