We chose Silver Seas because my husband and I wanted to visit Alaska on a small high end ship. We are not big cruisers and love high end hotels, but we knew this was the best way to see Alaska. The service and staff were excellent. The ... Read more

This was our second cruise with Silversea, and we had another wonderful experience. From our hotel pick-up in Vancouver to transfer to the ship, all the way through picking up our luggage in downtown Anchorage at the end of our voyage, ... Read more

Our first cruise was in 2006, to Alaska, on the Silver Shadow. We decided, after having sailed on five of the ships on this line, to revisit both the Shadow and Alaska. We have just completed 196 days on Silversea, and will probably ... Read more

We never thought we would enjoy cruising, but Silversea proved us wrong. When we decided to cruise Alaska, we chose Silversea because of the smaller size of the ship and recommendations of others. Embarkation and disembarkation worked like ... Read more

This is our second trip on Silverseas. I enjoy the intimacy of the small ship and first class service. This won't be our last cruise. During the cruise, I attended the cooking class on board and it was fantastic along with High ... Read more

Friends who have sailed on Silversea before mentioned they were thinking of going to Alaska and since we have always wanted to go, we decided to join them. The ship is nice, the crew is excellent, the food is pretty good. The ... Read more

We chose Silversea because of the luxury and comfort we had to live in, while seeing the grandeur and beauty of nature in Alaska. To be able to venture out on some daring excursions, i.e., zip-lining and rafting, and come back to the ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted a small ship that could get in to the smaller areas of Alaska as well as not wanting a ship that we would need to share with 1,000 plus vacationers. With the exception of the excursions, everything ... Read more

Our family of 12 (ages18-80) were on Silver shadow last week-only my mother has been on Silversea so it was her choice. We were all on deck 6 in Veranda rooms which were very nice. We absolutely loved Rodney our butler!! One of us had a ... Read more

This was the first time in Alaska for our family of 15, and our first small-ship cruise. And, long story short, it was excellent. Cabin We all had Veranda Suites, which were very spacious and had a great amount of storage space ... Read more

The best food, actually was in the regular dining room and not the specialty restaurants, though La Terrazz was good.I guess I expected more of a selection and more of a gourmet experience. And the bars were ho-hum. It sounds silly, ... Read more

Wanted to compare against Seaborn. There is really no comparison except for price and size of ship. Yes, both beat the larger ships and appeal to those who are wiling to pay for first class service. Maybe if I had not been on Seaborn, I ... Read more

We chose Silversea because of the reputation and a smaller ship in addition to the cuisine. The cruise mostly met our expectation. We normally go on riverboats as a more intimate and less stress experience. The 90 day dinner reservations ... Read more

We wanted a smaller boat and this one was perfect! Check in was a breeze, luggage was in the cabin when we arrived, and Daniel, our butler, got us a bottle of champagne immediately. Our cabin was 826. This was a perfect location on the ... Read more

We have met so many people are on travels who have come to Canada to do the Alaskan cruise, and yet we, who live in Vancouver, have not done it. So we felt shamed into finally taking an Alaskan cruise! SilverSea was definitely the best ... Read more

We have been on 15 several cruises throughout the years. For what we paid, we thought the cabins, food and service would be over the top! Not even close, it could have been just a typical large ship cruise liner where you pay a third of ... Read more

The ship is beautiful, perfectly maintained. The crew waits on you hand and foot. Nothing is ever crowded, nor do you have to wait for anything. We are big foodies, however, and therefore suffered disappointment. The menu ... Read more

We started our trip with an extended stay in Anchorage on our own, which was enjoyable and relaxing. The train ride to Seward was relaxing and offered beautiful vistas from the domed car. Meals on board and a "Moose Mary" or ... Read more

Chose this cruise as it was a small ship and it sailed to Seward Alaska, rather than just to Skagway as many do. The most disappointing thing was the very poor entertainment. Only had a show at 10pm each night with a singing crew. It ... Read more

We have been on several cruises with Silversea and it is obvious that the company is moving downmarket. It is not anymore in the same category that Seabourn or other luxury cruises, more like massmarket cruises like P&O or carnival ... Read more

We flew in to Anchorage AK and stayed one night at Captain Cook's - then we took the train ride from Anchorage to Seward. This was a delightful experience! Upon leaving Anchorage, we saw an adult moose with a baby moose. We were served ... Read more

This was my first cruise and I loved it. My suite (all cabins are suites) was nicer - and at least as large - as most hotel rooms I stay in. I had a veranda, but other than the veranda itself, even the smallest cabin on the ship is the ... Read more

I would never have submitted this critique, but after writing a letter to Mark Conroy, Director of America's, and receiving no reply, I decided to write an online review. Let me begin by saying that my husband and I travel extensively ... Read more
