Silver Shadow Review
About This Ship
Cruise Ship Overview
The first of Silversea's Millennium-class ships, Silver Shadow launched in 2000. Built with proportions slightly larger in size than her two earlier twin fleetmates, the third in the Silversea fleet, Silver Shadow introduced the next generation of Silversea cruising while maintaining Silversea’s all-suite luxury and trademark intimate ambience. Nine Terrace suites on Deck 5 have doors to a common, semiprivate veranda area. Even though the area is not furnished, it's like having a balcony without paying a higher fare.
The logical layout of these sister ships, with suites in the forward two-thirds of the ship and public rooms aft, makes orientation simple. The clean, modern decor that defines public areas and lounges might seem almost stark, but it places the main emphasis on large expanses of glass for sunshine and sea views as well as passenger comfort.
Silversea ships boast unbeatable libraries stocked with best sellers, travel books, classics, and movies for en suite viewing. Extremely wide passageways in public areas are lined with glass-front display cabinets full of interesting and unusual artifacts from the places the ships visit. The Connoisseur’s Corner is a clubby cigar smoking room with overstuffed leather seating and a ventilation system that makes it possible for even nonsmokers to appreciate.
