We loved our Silverseas Inside passage cruise from Vancouver to Anchorage and couldn’t wait to get on board the Silver Explorer for a Broome to Darwin cruise. Now we realise that this is a smaller ship and ...

Superb from embarkation to disembarkation. My daughter took me on this cruise to celebrate a milestone birthday and I could not recommend it highly enough. She has sailed with Silversea before so I knew what to ...

Great Butler, fabulous wine lectures, but not good food.

Lawrence was amazing in talking about wine, so much so, fasting and not eating would have been an option. But not one beef serving was edible. We laughed at lunch when the knife could not cut the beef and the ...

An upmarket party ferry

The evening shows have always been the weakest of the Silversea's offering followed by the tours which tend to be lame and very overpriced. On the Silver Muse just about everything else is sub standard as well. It ...

Great service and food but no sparkle that makes it a 6 star shop

The unusual itinerary was the main reason for selecting this cruise. It met my expectation. The service by the crew and staff is outstanding but the ship's special touches that make one return to Silver Sea are ...
