Day 7 – Semarang Overnight: Exploring Silver Shadow

Carrying 382 guests and 302 crew, Silver Shadow is large enough to offer multiple venues for dining, entertainment, bars and fitness, yet small enough to reach places that big ships can’t. Pictured here leaving the city center of Shanghai, China. © 2011 Ralph Grizzle

After a long, yet invigorating and enriching, tour yesterday, quite a few of us stayed on board Silver Shadow this morning to enjoy all that the luxury vessel has to offer. With that in mind, I thought it would be a good time to take you on a tour of Silver Shadow.

This voyage marks my fourth on Silver Shadow. On my voyage two years ago, I wrote an extensive review of Silver Shadow and produced a video review as well, which you’ll find in this post. Because Silver Shadow is constantly updated, I’ve updated the review to reflect any changes in the past two years.

Silver Shadow Overview

Launched in 2000, Silver Shadow was the first of Silversea’s second-generation ships, following original vessels Silver Cloud and Silver Wind. Measuring in at 28,258 gross tons and carrying 382 guests, like her sister Silver Whisper, she’s small enough to offer an intimate cruise experience while also being large enough to provide a range of onboard experiences.

Guest Reception & Shore Concierge are situated on Deck 5.

Like all the Silversea ships, Silver Shadow is designed with the vast majority of her public rooms located between midships and the stern, while staterooms and suites occupy the ship’s forward half.
