Overview

Silver Shadow is slightly larger than the older Silversea ships, but not as big as the Silver Spirit. Most recently updated in early 2017 (it debuted in 2000), the 388-passenger ship maintains a nearly 1-to-1 staff-to-guest ratio, with 302 crew members. For past cruisers, it was the friendly crew's attention to detail that helped set Silver Shadow apart from its competitors.

Recent passengers praise the all-suite accommodations, which range from the Vista Suite (287 square feet) to the two-bedroom Owner's Suite (1,264 square feet). All cabins offer ocean views and more than 80 percent include private balconies. Standard amenities include butler service, minifridges and full baths with separate showers.

When guests aren't in their rooms, they can utilize the ship's facilities, which include shopping boutiques, a casino, a beauty salon and an expansive pool deck. The ship also offers four dining venues, including La Dame, a specialty French restaurant with an additional reservation fee. As for nighttime entertainment, passengers have their pick between several cocktail lounges and the ship's performance venue.

In 2019-20, Silver Shadow sails throughout the Mediterranean, the Caribbean and South America, as well as some transoceanic voyages.
