When introduced in 2009, Silver Spirit was a radical new design for Silversea Cruises. How Does Silver Spirit Differ From The Rest Of The Silversea Fleet?

1. Passenger capacity. Silversea’s four other non-expedition vessels — Silver WindSilver CloudSilver Shadow and Silver Whisper — range from guest capacities of 296 guests to 382 guests. With a capacity for 540 guests, Silver Spirit, by contrast, is the largest ship in Silversea’s fleet — yet retains the generous passenger-space and passenger-crew ratios that have become Silversea hallmarks. Nonetheless, some Venetians disliked the larger size, preferring instead the line’s smaller vessels.

If you feel that sharing space with more than 500 other guests is more than you can tolerate, look to the line’s other ships, and if even they are too large, consider Silversea’s expedition vessels — Silver ExplorerSilver Discoverer and Silver Galapagos — that carry around 100 guests each.
