This summer, all-suite, 382-guest Silver Shadow will be the only ultra-luxury cruise ship exploring Alaska, Silversea Cruises announced in January.
Boasting a crew-to-guest ratio of 1 to 1.29 and a space ratio of 74.0 (or 7,400 cubic feet of space per guest), Silversea reveals Alaska and the Pacific Coast on ten itineraries of nine to 12 days. Several sailings feature round-trip departures from Vancouver, with open-jaw voyages also available from Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seward.
The Alaska voyages will showcase a enrichment program of noted scholars, writers, and other experts selected from a variety of fields to share their passion, knowledge and insider views with Silversea's guests.
