  3. Silver Shadow
This was our first experience with Silver Sea. We loved the smaller ship (about 400 passengers) and the good mix, with some family groups, some older and some younger than us. We traveled as a couple but enjoyed camaraderie with fellow passengers. Our cabin was a very good size even though it was a standard room with veranda. The attendant and butler kept it in tip-top shape. we didn't really utilize the butler service as we didn't feel a need. We enjoyed the choice of four dining venues for dinner and were able to use them all. The food was excellent and had a great variety. The service was outstanding, and most everyone was friendly and helpful. The entertainment options aren't great but that was OK with us, as we retired to our room around 10 each night after a full day. The ports and excursions had a nice variety. We did some hiking, strolling through towns, whale watching and salmon fishing. I would definitely sail with Silver Sea again - trying to decide where I want to go next!

Wonderful experience

Cabin Review

Veranda Suite
Cabin V3 710
The cabin was a good size, with a big walk-in closet and nice bathroom with double sinks and a bathtub separate from the shower. There was a good size sitting area and veranda.
