Silver Wind Review
About This Ship
Cruise Ship Overview
The second vessel in the Silversea fleet, Silver Wind was introduced in 1995 as a virtual twin to Silver Cloud. While undergoing an upgrade in 2009, a unique Medallion suite on Deck 7 measuring in at 678 square feet was created. Although it has no veranda—large picture windows offer sea views—it is larger than some of the costlier suites. At the same time, the spa was enlarged and relocated and a forward facing observation lounge was added.
These two yacht-like gems are all about style, understatement, and personal choice, so if you want to snuggle into a book in the well-stocked library, no one will lift an eyebrow. Although there simply isn't enough square footage on these ships for huge rooms, the public spaces are more than adequate and designed to function well. These ships served as the models for their larger sisters, Silver Shadow and Silver Whisper, which expanded on the smaller ships' concept of locating all passenger accommodations forward and public rooms aft.
The Restaurant is one of the loveliest dining rooms at sea, with a domed ceiling and musicians to provide dance music between courses. Both the Bar and Panorama Lounge are comfortable spots to socialize, dance, or enjoy cocktails before or after the evening entertainment, which might include a classical concert or smallish production show in the show room or Moonlight Movies, feature films shown outside on the pool deck.
