How it Ranks: Silver Spirit ranks #1 out of 5 Silversea Cruises Cruise Ships based on an analysis of expert and user ratings, as well as health ratings.

The largest — and newest — ship within the Silversea fleet, Silver Spirit continues paving the way for luxury cruising with innovative features like an 8,300-square-foot spa and the Stars Supper Club, a trendy restaurant with art deco-inspired accents and imaginative dishes. Plus, foodies can rejoice in the ship's five other venues, which serve everything from Italian cuisine to divine French fare. However, past cruisers say the suites alone are worth the high cost of cruising on this ship. These spacious accommodations come equipped with guests' choice of pillow and toiletries, marble-trimmed bathrooms and sumptuous linens, not to mention refrigerators (stocked with preferred beverages and snacks), iPod docking stations and flat-screen TVs. Once you're feeling refreshed, snag a lounge chair by the pool, take a stroll through the ship's high-end shops or challenge yourself at a fitness class. Afterward, pamper yourself with a replenishing body wrap; for a little extra rejuvenation, sign up for a Private Hammam Experience to soak in the Turkish-style bath. In addition to the gourmet cuisine, elegant digs and contemporary amenities, travelers can't stop raving about the impeccable service, praising everyone from the concierge to the butlers on their hospitality. In 2014, Silver Spirit will cruise to South America, the Caribbean and the Mediterranean.
