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

Good cruise spoiled by the transfers and some of the details

One of the singers on board told us that a crew member is allocated to every Shore excursion to ensure things go smoothly so maybe they need to do something similar for airport transfers.A few of us were losing patience and several of the older passengers were really finding it hard going so a mutiny was mounted and the agents were eventually persuaded to let us board the bus which had already had our luggage loaded and then they finally agreed to take us to the ship.Read More

Great new Ship with exemplary crew

The shore company who Silversea used transported us to a Covid-19 test site as 6 of us need PCR testing done for our return flights when we got there the laboratory doing the test was typical nonchalant and the company representative had to keep on top of things as there was no sense of urgency even though we only had a couple hours before our flight from Guayaquil to Quito.The one additional comment I would make is that after disembarking the ship Silverseas looked after us until we boarded our flight to Quito.Read More

After the cruise we were flown back to Quito where we were met by Silversea's representative who insisted that he was driving us an hour into Quito so we could sit in a day room for four hours and then he would pick us up for an hour-long ride back to the airport for our flight home that same night.Silversea requires that you arrive in Quito, Ecuador two days prior to your cruise.Read More
