Review for Silver Shadow to Alaska

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Originally, we were booked on a Holland America Line (HAL) Alaska cruise with a Denali land extension. We have sailed HAL twice and enjoyed them. We have sailed Oceania many times also. But, when I spotted a Travelzoo deal for the same itinerary on Silversea Silver Shadow, we rebooked. Basically paid the same price as HAL but had the benefit of Silversea figuring out the air, transfers, all ...

Lovely cruise to Alaska - is it ultra-luxury?

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

I chose this cruise because the 7 day itinerary fitted in with a trip to Vancouver, Alaska and Seattle of nearly 4 weeks. And it went to 4 ports, whereas the premium lines only went to 3 ports in 7 days. And it had a lot fewer people, which is a great bonus. We booked in 2018 for 2020 (postponed to 2022) so we paid probably half of what it would have cost this year. This was our first ocean ...

I am a long time Silversea passenger and have sailed on almost all of their boats including two previous trips on the Muse. While the shore excursion team, housekeeping staff, our butler, waitstaff etc were all excellent and went above and beyond my expectations to make our vacation wonderful, the food quality and restaurant options were very poor on this trip. This was my third cruise since ...

The cruise just prior to ours was apparently the cruise from hell (see previous reviews) with ship breakdown, missed ports and time delays. Thankfully everything seemed to be corrected for our departure. Other than today's typical airline horror stories, which we just barely missed, we arrived in Vancouver at 4:30 in the morning, of departure day. Therefore, our free day in the departure city ...

The inside passage Cruise departed Seward Alaska on 23Jun2022 and arrived Vancouver on 30Jun2022. My wife and I were touring with two other couples. We booked on SilverSea based on the small ship, limited passengers, and reputation for a fantastic cruise experience. One of the other couples found this cruise line and time and we all agreed. We also all three couples decided to do the 4-day ...

Alaska was amazing but the cruise was disappointing.

Alaska cruise from Vancouver to Seward - a fantastic way to see Alaska! However - the actual cruise was disappointing. The "entertainment" on board was outdated and like a high school talent hour. It was so bad that it was laughable. The restaurant choices were poor, the only variety offered from the on board restaurants required a supplemental charge. The complimentary house wines were ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We had heard excellent reports on Silverseas from friends who had travelled with them. So when we decided to take a cruise to Alaska they were the obvious choice. The cruise was delayed by one say due to problems on the previous cruise. There was little or no information provided by the company and no member of staff from Silverseas came to the hotel where the majority of the passengers were ...

Not a Premier Cruise Line

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

This cruise was to be a celebration of my husband's retirement and our 36th wedding anniversary. It was a constant worry from the beginning. The SS Covid requirement of a negative test before boarding led us on a scramble around Anchorage the morning of boarding to find a test without the support of the cruise line staff. We knew the requirement but not how difficult and expensive it would be to ...

Great food/service; poor experience/management

Said to be high quality ship/line and good Alaska schedule. Silversea is NOT coming back well from covid; pre-travel experience poor. Checked me in wrong twice. Difficulty with Silversea air arrangements. On ship: wonderful cabins, amenities. Great service, and food (though weather precluded one of the 3 restaurants). Most excursions cancelled for various reasons. Ship broke down and spent ...

While the front-facing staff on Silversea are uniformly friendly, it was evident from the start that things were out of sync. the life boat drill that left us sitting for close to an hour because it was started with boarding incomplete. A guide to take us to our life boat station that failed to do so. Menus that were missing pages or for the wrong service. Orders that were unfulfilled or ...
