Providing the ultimate experience in luxury travel, Silversea Cruises include everything you could possible ask for. From exquisite fine dining to complimentary beverages offered throughout each cruise, including fine wines, champagnes, premium beers, spirits, bottled water and soft drinks.
Seven elegant, yacht-like ships provide guests with the highest standards in all-suite accommodations, combined with sublime service that is both attentive, yet not intrusive. On a Silversea voyage, all guests benefit from European-style butler service within their luxurious home away from home, complete with Bvlgari toiletries, personalised stationery and a mini-bar stocked with your favourite drink. Nothing is too much trouble.
The style aboard is inspired by the golden age of cruising. With decorative art deco elements creating a sophisticated ambience reminiscent of the 1930s. Guests can explore the world as they are immersed in a blend of modern elegance and timeless glamour. Because of each ships size, they are able to visit some of the most unique ports of call, somewhere where larger ships can only dream of visiting. Whether your desire is to unwind with a signature treatment in the spa or to attend an informative seminar, each ship is alive with options designed to relax, enrich and broaden your horizons.
We really enjoyed the classical pianist and singer in the main show lounge, as well as the pianist in The Bar – a great place for a pre-dinner cocktail or an evening drink. Do book in for an evening meal at Le Champagne, there is a small cover charge and the food and service are out of this world. Veranda Suites are spacious, and the beds very comfortable with cosy duvets and even a pillow menu to choose from.
What you should know
The atmosphere and ambience on board is hard to put into words – after a day or two you become seduced by the pampering, the first-class service and the warm hospitality. Beware when you reach a port of call it may be hard to leave the ship.
May we suggest
The Silver Shadow was the first of the fleet to have the spa area upgraded and it is well worth a visit, for both ladies and gentlemen (the new spa concept has since been added to all ships). Treatments are varied and affordable. We would suggest you book early as they can get quite busy on nights and days at sea.
