ULTRA LUXURY CRUISING with Silversea | Designer Travel

Silversea’s award-wining fleet offer uncrowded, sophisticated luxury

Silversea Ships are elegant, spacious and luxurious, offering six-star service and a welcoming atmosphere. Most of the ocean view suites have a private teak veranda. Wines and drinks are included in the cost and the company operates a ‘no tipping’ policy. Open seating dining operates throughout the ship and there is a 24-hour room service.

The Fleet

Silversea now have several ships offering sophisticated and spacious accommodation and public spaces.

The two original ships, Silver Cloud and Silver Wind have been transferred to the line’s Expedition Fleet after major refits (see separate blog).

Silver Shadow (built 1999) and Silver Whisper at 28,258 tons carry 388 guests.

Silver Spirit (built 2009) at 36,000 tons which can carry 540 guests.

Silver Muse (built 2018) and Silver Moon (due 2020) at 40,000 tons which carry 800 guests.

Silversea offer an array of dining options on-board

Apart from the luxurious main Restaurant for evening dining with no reservation required, there is La Terraza (the more casual option during the day) which is transformed into an elegant a la carte Italian Restaurant in an evening offering both inside and outside seating (when appropriate); by reservation for dinner. There is a select small specialty venue La Dame, the only wine restaurant by Relais & Châteaux at sea, per guest registration fee applies if selected. Hot Rocks offers casual dining by the pool during the day, this venue is transformed in the evening to a wonderful al fresco restaurant that offers you the chance to cook your meal to your liking at your table on a volcanic lava stone.

Additional new restaurants have been introduced to Silver Spirit after it was lengthened in 2018; Seishin, an Asian fusion venue, and Stars Supper Club which has a very relaxed atmosphere offering cocktails, dinner at a leisurely pace with live music and dancing lasting well into the night.


The newer ship, Silver Muse offers guests, as well as La Terrazza and Hot Rocks mentioned previously, a new range of dining experiences including Atlantide (exquisite seafood and mouth-watering steaks), Indochine offering Asian fusion throughout the day, open for lunch and dinner, Kaiseki open in the evening only offers superb Japanese cuisine, Silver Note offers small tapas-style dishes while a jazz and blues band plays and finally Spaccanapoli offering relaxed all day poolside dining.

The newest ship Silver Moon (due in 2020) will be nearly identical apart from the popular restaurant Atlantide being made larger following feedback from guests aboard Silver Muse.
