We sailed from Barbados to Barbados on the Silver Spirit from 20th November to 8th December 2016 to the Amazon. Silversea is our favourite cruise line and we are loyal Venetian members. However standards have fallen considerably despite ... Read more

Sailed December 2015
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 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

I had not intended to lodge a critique on our cruise if the Silver Sea cruise line had acted honourably and answered some of the queries raised by our travel agent in Australia. On our return from the cruise on the Silver Shadow from ... Read more

Maybe we had been expecting too much, but Silverseas whilst perfectly OK does not seem much different to the other lines we have used, Celebrity, Cunard, P&O and Princess, in order to justify the higher price. The two main differences ... Read more

We were really looking forward to our 6 star cruise from Buenos Aires to Barbados but unfortunately it didn't live up to our expectations. The Stateroom was fine, if a little dated and we went for our first meal at the pool deck. Caesar ... Read more

Not rated Sailed January 2014
We are experienced Silversea cruisers. Silver Cloud fell far short of expectations. Food eaten on board before sailing made us both ill. Heating system was broken for three days. Instead of apologizing, crew blamed cold weather but finally ... Read more

First time on Silversea; most comparable cruise we have been on was Seabourne, so that is the best comparison. We took a mid-ship veranda which was very comfortable: king bed, full-size couch, separate closet, shower and bathtub, toilet in ... Read more

Sailed January 2013
We booked the cruise because of the area it covered and we were not disappointed. Southern Chile and Argentina were beautiful, sparse, and definitely off the beaten track. The Argentine government had threatened to not service the ship on ... Read more

The first time on Silver Seas and the last time. Upon starting our cruise we were told by the Captain that we would not be stopping at the Port of Stanley, Falkland Island. This was to be the high light of the cruise as we have been to the ... Read more

The cruise started out exciting!!! Buenos Aires for 2 days. This was the only highlight of the voyage. The "Cloud" was to be "Renovated". Well that was the first letdown. The Cabin was old, beat up, furniture pieces, a filthy dirty deck ... Read more

Sailed October 2009
This was our second cruise on Silver Cloud. Boarding in New York was delayed due to the ship encountering bad weather but we were well looked after by the ground crew with drinks, nibbles and $US100 to make us feel better. The ship's crew ... Read more
