We chose Silversea because of its stellar reputation and attention to every detail. My family spent 2 days in Vancouver before the cruise. What a beautiful city! Don't miss visiting Suspension Bridge Park- definitely a must see. The ease and organization that was displayed by the luggage handlers for Silversea as we arrived at the dock confirmed what we had read about this cruise line--attention to detail everywhere. We felt like royalty from the moment we walked on the ship and were greeted with a glass of champagne and smiling faces from our crew. Our Medallion suite was much larger than I thought it would be. Our 3 children were each in a Veranda suite and they also remarked on the spaciousness of their rooms. The service was top-notch. Every crew member went out of their way to make sure my family was comfortable and had everything we needed. After returning from a fishing trip on a chilly day in Sitka, hot baths were waiting for us. How did the butlers know that they were just we wanted?! Our 3 children and their significant others (all in their 20's and 30's) were on the dance floor every night dancing to the music played by DJ Rob. Our cruise director Kirk seemed to have boundless energy- seriously, how was he was able to lead so many activities each day? Someone needs to bottle his energy! I enjoyed each of the restaurants, and the portion size was perfect. We enjoyed "dressing up" for dinner in The Restaurant and also dining informally under the stars on the pool deck. And of course, nothing beats a room service breakfast. We loved each of the ports we stopped in, but if we had to pick one excursion over the others it would be the heli tour/glacier walk in Skagway. Unforgettable. Visiting the Iditarod summer camp in Juneau was a close second. Although we were sad to see the cruise end, we have fabulous memories to keep us company until we sail on another Silversea ship.

Silversea is the only cruise for us!
