About Silversea Cruises Awards 2014 Winner

Best Luxury Cabins

Silversea features formal service: Couples in their 40s and older dress for dinner — formal nights are not optional here. The experience feels indulgent: Silversea's all-inclusive pricing bundles wine, Heidsieck Champagne, and top-shelf spirits in the fare. Bathrooms have Bulgari toiletries, and beds are dressed with Pratesi linens. Quality comes at a cost: The prices, with few exceptions, are prohibitive for many travelers — some cruises are more than $1,000 per person per day.

Best For

Silversea attracts mostly couples in their 40s and older who like dressing for dinner and the luxury of being waited on. 

Not For

Casual types who like to let their hair down and party, or families traveling with children.

We Love

  • Silversea's all-inclusive pricing bundles wine, Heidsieck Champagne, top-shelf spirits, and tips in the fare.
  • Beds are dressed with luxurious Italian Pratesi linens.
  • Suites — and they’re all suites on five of the seven Silversea ships —  have impressive walk-in closets. 
  • Large, marble-clad bathrooms come with separate showers and tubs, as well as decadent Bulgari toiletries.
  • Full dinners, course by course, can be served in your cabin.
  • La Terrazza’s “slow food” concept includes house-made pasta.
  • Silversea offers around-the-world itineraries that veer way off the tourist path, spanning nearly 100 countries on all seven continents.
  • Looking for luxury for less? One-week cruises in Europe, the Caribbean, and Alaska start at $300 per person a day.

We Could Live Without

  • The stiff-upper-lip formality of both the passengers and crew can feel, well, stiff at times.
  • Some cruises are more than $1,000 per person a day, not including airfare.
