Sail Date: Jul 2009


While this was our sixth cruise (and second to Alaska) for my us, it was our first on Silversea, or on any luxury line. We are in our late 40's and, by our own definition, "cabin rats". As cabin rats our number one goal on a cruise is rest and relaxation, and to us that means great service, no crowds, good food, a comfortable cabin, good books/movies, an upscale/elegant atmosphere, and no hassles. So, when plans changed unexpectedly for us this summer, we booked a 12-night cruise (3917) from San Francisco to Alaska and back at what was for us the last minute (three months out) through Silversea.
