Silversea Cruise Tips, Activities, and Overview

Who goes on Silversea cruise ships?

Silversea caters to Baby Boomers, affluent and often retired, with the leisure and the resources to make Silversea their cruise line of choice. Silversea Expeditions also appeals to that demographic, as well as younger professionals with a desire for active cruising that includes posh cabins and stellar service alongside Zodiac expeditions, snorkeling excursions and in-port hikes. Shorter classic voyages also tend to draw younger passengers. About 60 percent of passengers onboard come from the Americas, the rest from international markets.

Do I have to dress up on a Silversea cruise?

Yes, if you are going on a classic cruise ship; no if you're sailing on a luxury expedition cruise. The classic ships divide evenings among casual resort wear, informal attire (for men, this means a jacket, tie optional, and women wear dresses or pantsuits) and formal nights when eveningwear for women is an evening gown or cocktail dress and men wear tuxedos, dinner jackets or dark suits, and a tie is required.

The dress code is more casual on the expedition vessels, and there are no formal nights.

Is everything free on Silversea cruises?

Silversea cruises are fairly inclusive, with the only extras being shore excursions (except on Silversea's expedition cruises on which they're included in the cruise price), shop purchases, spa and beauty treatments, and send-out laundry. Some specialty restaurants also cost extra (and caviar on the room service menu).

Cruise fares include gratuities, unlimited beverages (soft and alcoholic), internet access and round trip transportation into town in most ports. Most itineraries also include transfers to/from the ship, and some even include complimentary round trip economy airfare.

What are Silversea’s most popular activities?

Onboard, each Silversea cruise ship has a pool and hot tubs that see a lot of action, and the spa gets a lot of use, as well. Silversea cruisers also enjoy attending lectures on the culture and history of the destinations they visit, and like to spend time in the library. Evening shows, which range from opera-themed to swing-era classics, also draw a crowd. When in port, most Silversea cruisers opt for one of the line's many shore excursion offerings.

Expedition cruises bring cruisers together with experts to lead hiking, Zodiac, snorkeling, diving and other small group excursions.

Why go with Silversea?

  • All-suite, all-inclusive cruise line.
  • True luxury in suites, service, food and wine -- even in remote regions.
  • Itineraries blend exotic ports and mainstream locales.

Best for: Sophisticated international travelers who enjoy unusual destinations yet want a hint of traditional formality, complete with butler service

Not for: Young families and American-centric cruisers who like to be casual all the time

Amazing destination, great experience - but cut short

We chose this itinerary specifically - the Falklands, South Georgia, South Shetlands, Elephant Island (Shackelton) and the Antarctic peninsula plus cruising Cape Horn on the way in to Puerto Williams.Our only problem with the itinerary was skipped stops (Elephant Island) and two days cut short (Antarctic Peninsula as well as Cape Horn).Read More

Amazing first cruise experience

It became clear to us early on that we would not be happy with a cruise line that had thousands of guests so we decided we would cap it at 1,000.So, we went in search of a cruise and some criteria included: luxury ship/rooms, long days at port (no ships leaving too early), and no sea days since we did not know how we would fare.Read More

Amazing Experience

as the ship is fully inclusive we thought it might be awkward to ask for refills of champagne, cocktails wine etc..Entertainment was fairly limited compared to some of the larger cruise ships but it was well thought out and enjoyable.Read More

Very Disappointing Cruise

The cocktail lounge on deck 5 was the closest thing to comfortable and decently appointed, although tired and worn, venue for a pre or post dinner cocktail.Elsewhere, the lounge on deck 8 that serves as an observation lounge, an early riser coffee bar, afternoon tea venue, and a bar/lounge/music venue in the evening was appalling.Read More
