Traveling with Silversea on our Alaska cruise was just perfect. The sites, service, and overall feel were great. I will say, the food was somewhat lacking in my opinion, but the overall experience was spectacular.

Silversea is a wonderful way to see the world in comfort and luxury. I went with a large family group and they really took care of us. Would highly recommend, especially for multi-gen travel!

I took a Silversea cruise in Alaska a number of years ago with a big family group. It was my first cruise experience. What a wonderful one it was! The service was spectacular, the ship was spotless, and the excursions were impressively varied. Highly recommended!

Having taken two cruises with Silverseas I can confidently recommend them. I was a skeptic about cruising. They made it easy to fall in love with this unique way to travel. I cannot say enough about the service. From the butlers to the wait staff everyone was professional, helpful and cheerful. The cabins are gorgeous with all the amenities and then some. On one of our trips we were having an anniversary. Our butler decorated our room with balloons and candles. He had a special bottle of champagne waiting along with a bubble bath drawn when we returned from our daily excursion. Above and beyond! The excursions are a bit pricey but they do offer a wide variety of activities. It's easy to stay busy which was one of my hesitations with cruising. There is a gym with treadmills and weights. You can run/walk around a track outdoors or swim in the beautiful pool. The ships call at various ports frequently so there's never a cooped up feeling. I am definitely hooked on cruising and Silverseas in particular.

Stride Review

Founded in 1994, Silversea has been a major player in the world of luxury small ship cruising. 

What Makes Them Stand Out?

For many years, Silversea has been the pinnacle of luxury cruising for the 50 + audience. They excel at providing an all-encompassing experience, from multiple restaurants and bars on board, extensive shore excursions, and attentive customer service.

Who Travels With Them?

Typically Silversea attracts older travelers seeking a high standard of luxury from their cruise experience. Activities and ambiance are all designed to appeal to an older crowd.

Where Do They Operate?

Silversea cruises sail to over 800 destinations on all seven continents. All cruises provide multiple and varied opportunities to go ashore.

Why Travel With Them?

For a relaxing and luxurious experience, where you have control over how adventurous or laid back you want to be, Silversea is a great option. Amenities include personalized service, large staterooms, and world class cuisine.

From Silversea

In a world of multi-national conglomerates, Silversea Cruises is owned and operated by one family — the Lefebvres of Rome. This means genuine pride in ownership and a true Italian passion for embracing the best of life. And it also means a deep, personal commitment to maintain the high standards of cruise excellence that have been the cornerstone of Silversea from the very beginning.

The cruise line was born of a vision to create a whole new category of ultra-luxury cruising: smaller ships with an unmatched, all-inclusive lifestyle and the ability to slip into smaller, more exotic ports worldwide. Silersea launched Silver Cloud in 1994 and Silver Wind in 1995, followed by the slightly larger sister ships, Silver Shadow and Silver Whisper in 2000 and 2001; and in 2009, Silversea’s beautiful flagship Silver Spirit.

In 2008 the company introduced Silversea Expeditions and Silver Explorer, a purpose-built expedition ship that combines adventure cruising with Silversea’s signature lifestyle. A second expedition ship, Silver Galapagos, was launched in 2013, and Silver Discoverer in 2014. Today Silversea operates a fleet of eight ships and a cruise programme that encompasses all seven continents and over 800 destinations. With a capacity of just 100 to 540 guests, Silversea ships are small in comparison to mass-market vessels, yet inordinately spacious in feel and appearance thanks to their unexcelled space ratios. Exceptional service is also a distinction. All accommodations are spacious, ocean-view suites and most include butler service and private verandas.

With its Italian heritage and elegant European ambience, Silversea’s all inclusive cruises attracts a sophisticated audience of worldly travellers.
