Silversea: Silver Shadow Overview

Silversea - Silver Shadow at sea

Third in the Silversea fleet, the  Silver Shadow  cruise ship introduced guests to the next generation of Silversea cruising while maintaining Silversea’s award winning , all-suite luxury and trademark intimate ambience.

Silversea’s Millennium Class ships –  Silver Shadow  and her sister ship  Silver Whisper  – are built with proportions slightly larger in size than their two earlier ships, yet they retain the same level of genuine hospitality.

Silver Shadow ’s 2012 is a study in contrasts from the unique scenery of New Zealand and Australia to the fabled landscapes of the Far East and the wild, natural beauty of summer in Alaska . A special holiday sailing visits magical Bali and spends the year’s 365th day in the crystal blue waters of the magnificent Great Barrier Reef .

Spectacular New Zealand fiords and Australia’s Outback are but two of the unforgettable destinations encountered aboard Silver Shadow  cruises during 2013. In late February  Silver Shadow  travels to Asia to explore the wonders of the Far East until it’s time once again to spend the warmer months surrounded by the majesty of Alaska . Come fall, it’s back to Japan, China and a series of 9-day Vietnam cruises . In December, sailings around Australia and New Zealand are highlighted by a 15-day holiday cruise between Sydney and Auckland

Silversea Destinations: AsiaLet the fabled islands of Indonesia embrace you with their exotic beauty.Silversea’s Asia cruises explore Vietnam – a seemingly endless patchwork of rice paddies, colourful markets and entrepreneurial energy. Cruises in Asia journey between ancient glories and modern-day miracles from Beijing with its Great Wall and Forbidden City to booming Shanghai … from Tokyo’s flashing neon lights to Nagasaki’s beautiful bay … from high-tech Taiwan to Kyoto , cultural fountainhead of Classical Japan .

 

Silversea Destinations: Australia and New ZealandThe Far Side of the World – Close Up…

Silversea’s South Pacific cruises sweep across two hemispheres, two continents and a breathtaking succession of dazzling sights. New Zealand  sets out to impress with its geysers and glaciers, sub-tropical rain forest andspectacular Lord of the Rings landscapes . In Australia you can wander from wonder to wonder: the Great Barrier Reef , the wildlife ofKangaroo Island , stunning Sydney Harbour

 

Silversea Destinations: AlaskaOnce Upon a Time…

This is what Earth must have looked like before the human footprint. Immense forests as far as the eye can see. Glaciers advancing and retreating in an endless cycle of rebirth. An ice age wilderness , bigger, bolder and more beautiful than you can imagine Alaska’s sheer size puts everything else in perspective. Yet, ironically, it takes a smaller Silversea ship to appreciate the immensity of it all.

Silversea’s luxury Alaska cruises take you on an insider’s path along the Inside Passage. There are diamond-blue icebergs, rushing mountain streams, waterfalls and flowers of every colour. Here you’ll find the biggest bears , the largest gathering ofbald eagles anywhere, and more than half of the world’s entire population of humpback whales . Experience Alaska’s grandeur up close and in person aboard an intimate Silversea Alaska cruise .
