Cabin: Grand Suite 1

Chose cruise to see Alaska in luxury with excellent food.

We had booked the train from Anchorage to Seward but it was only running to a few miles short of Seward so Silversea decided to transfer everyone by bus whereas we were told other cruise ships were collecting people by bus from the train. We were reimbursed by Silversea but it just seemed easier for Silversea to move everyone the same way!

Embarkation worked well and was very quick but cabins were not available when boarded ship for at least another hour

Cabin Review

Grand Suite 1

Cabin G1

Cabin was excellent, immaculate clean and beautifully appointed.

This qualified us for dinner with a ship’s officer. We were invited on the 2nd night of the cruise but had already booked La Dame for the]at evening. Reception advised us to keep the booking at La Dame as they were so difficult to get and assured us we would be invited to join a ship’s officer for dinner later in the cruise! La Dame was very disappointing (as mentioned above) and we never received another invite confirmed our impression of poor management on the Silver Muse

Port Reviews

Juneau

Nice hike but not as strenuous as advertised

Skagway

We had never ziplined before so their was a good introduction.

Sitka

Took the Private guided tour which was excellent and on return the speed boat took us to an area where he saw whales on way to collect us and we saw a humpback

Ketchikan

Excellent and saw a couple of bears catching salmon and another on a waterfall. Floatplane ride was enjoyable
