Silver Shadow

June 2016 - Silver Shadow to Alaska

Full Family Cruising

All aspects of the cruise were outstanding. Four adult children and spouses were with us. The service at every level was exceptional. At age 87 I was limited to a wheelchair and the staff were very attentive and caring. The food was marvelous. All shore arrangements worked well. (My stay was mostly on board because of my handicap.) Needless to say, the scenery was all it was said to be--spectacular.

Silver Shadow

June 2016 - Silver Shadow to Alaska

Bucket List Trip for 86 yr old Father

The Service of the staff far exceeded expectations. At any moment on the ship we had attentive crew meeting all needs.  From offering drinks and food, to offering to push my fathers wheel chair.  He preferred to stay on board as we all (4 siblings and spouses) went ashore, but we felt very confident that his private butler would attend to any need.

The Wildlife and Glacier viewing were all that we would wish for.  Hubbard Glacier access was incredible and the Shadow was able to get unusually close...the photography was awesome. On an whale watching excursion we watched humpback mother and calf breach in circles around our boat...lifetime memories all around.

Only improvement would be to have a few offerings of Northwest seafood.  The Salmon served was Atlantic and there seemed to be no local seafood...i.e. Northwest Salmon, Dungeness crab, etc.  We are from the Northwest and would have expected it on an Alaska cruise.  The portions offered were perfect, a lot of care went into presentation, the wines overall were good.  I would rate the food at 4 stars but only because of lack of Northwest offerings on an Alaska cruise.

BucketListTrip's Tips

Silver Shadow Silver Shadow - Don't overpack. Much of cruise is casual dress.
Silver Shadow Silver Shadow - Book your restaurants early but don't worry if you end up with not getting what you want...we were able to easily book on board for the number of reservations we wanted. Plan your excursions around the in port schedule. We booked an excursion that did not allow us any time in the port to explore..
