Some feedback on the cruise experience on Silversea Silver Shadow, and our comparison experience with Seabourn & Regent.

We arrived back mid-March from our 19 nights on Silversea’s Silver Shadow, Singapore to Hong Kong via Vietnam, then back to Singapore via Manilla, Borneo & Brunei.

This was actually 2 back to back cruises that we merged into 1 cruise.

Cabin Review

Veranda Suite

Cabin V3

Cabin quality:

Cabin is old & dated compared with Seabourn & Regent ships.

We had a shower that leaked water under the shower glass door, and we had to put a small towel onto the floor to stop water running.

A minor inconvenience, and we reported it for correction.

An old DVD player was there, but we never used it.

The old sofa was frayed and well past its use by date.

Our Seabourn Quest cabin was a step-up from our Regent Mariner cabin, which is a step-up from the Silver Shadow suite.

The Quest was built in 2011, the Silver Shadow in 2000, so quite a difference in age, and it was very obvious. So don’t expect the latest & greatest on Silver Shadow.
