Sail Date: Feb 2018
Cabin: Veranda Suite

We had previously taken the Silver Whisper from New York to Bermuda and liked the Silversea product, so we booked the Silver Shadow. We were supposed to depart from Tokyo, but a Tsunami caused Silversea to change the departure port to Inchon, South Korea and we visited Seoul also at that time. Silversea had to cancel all the Japan ports and allowed booked passengers to cancel if they wished, but if they stayed which we did they offered a 1/2 price cruise on a future trip which we did on the Silver Cloud. On the cruise many passengers had cancelled, but we had a light ship.

Silversea is a fine cruise line and I think Celebrity realized it so formed Azamara as an answer to Silversea with its personalized service.

As a thank you for keeping the booking, Silversea furnished a private car transfer to the Seoul Grand Hotel and furnished us a three step cost free upgrade at the hotel.

Cabin Review

Veranda Suite

Cabin V2

Very spacious cabin and service was exquisite. In the 50 cruises that we have been on this ship rated very high. She was 28,258 Gross Tonnage with Passenger Capacity of 382 and was 610 feet long and 81.36 feet wide. She rode very well in 10 foot seas.

Port Reviews

Kodiak

They were having a Crab Festival the day we stopped so it was very good. The Coast Guard did a demonstration of life saving procedures and rescue demonstration.

Homer

We took a private tour with Dan and Rene Eidem that took us into the backwood hills of Homer Alaska hunting Bears and we did find one. Nice four wheel drive 4 wheelers.
