  3. Silver Shadow
We were looking for a smaller ship with high-end values and we found it on the Silver Shadow. The tours were excellent and our cabin (808) was perfect. We loved our butler and maid. Embarkation and debarkation were extremely smooth and efficient. Would love to do it all over again. Unfortunately, since we booked only 2 months in advance we were not able to book the 2 speciality restaurants. However, the maitre'd was able to fit us in La Terezza on one evening and it was delightful. I enjoyed the very talented singers and loved the opera night. I wished they had done more nostalgic duets on the night of Duos. The Observation Deck is really wonderful and we were so fortunate to see the Hubbard Glacier and take many pictures. We also saw, on some of our excursions, whales, sea otters and bald eagles. The trip to the eagle sanctuary and bear sanctuary was very rewarding. I applaud the staff, cleanliness and comfort of the ship. The cruise director was fabulous, Rico. We had fun afternoons playing the Trivia Quiz; our team won a prize!

Wonderful week!
