Silversea Cruises: Life on-board

  • Total cruises 682
  • Fleet: 10 Ships
  • Destinations: 32

From spacious staterooms to gourmet dining and sparkling evening entertainment, alongside unforgettable shore excursions, everything is included in your Silversea cruise fare so you can enjoy carefree ocean voyaging at its finest.


As is to be expected, dining onboard each Silversea ship is of the highest quality. Whether you're sitting down for breakfast, lunch or dinner, or a snack in between, the choice of dining venues means you'll be able to experience luxury cuisine at every moment of your cruise. The main dining room on each ship is elegant appointed, offering regional specialities and continental favourites, making it perfect for all palates. What's more, for something a little different, each ship features several speciality restaurants. While restaurants may vary across the fleet, here are some of the most popular:

  • The Grill- al fresco dining complete with delicious cocktails and stunning views
  • Indochine- Asian dishes jam packed with flavour
  • La Dame- fine French dining
  • Kaiseki- authentic Japanese cuisine


If big casinos and extravagant theatres are what you’re after, then Star Clipper may not be for you. However, nights onboard are both sophisticated and elegant. With a drink in hand you can find a cosy corner, tap your foot to some live music or exchange stories with fellow guests.


Take your luxury cruise to the next level by booking an appointment at the onboard spa. With expert professionals on hand, why not treat yourself to a massage, facial or any other treatment from the extensive menu? In addition, while you're there you can also head to the hair salon and let an experienced stylist work their magic.

As well as the spa, each Silversea Cruises' ship is equipped with a modern gym, perfect for anyone who likes to keep on top of their workouts, even when they're on holiday. On the other hand, if you prefer more social exercise, there are also fitness classes on offer led by a trained professional.

With stunning views and flanked by plenty of sun loungers, it's no surprise that the pool area on each ship is a popular spot for guests to spend their free time during their cruise. However, when you're not relaxing in the sun and marvelling at the sight of the ocean, you can use your free time to learn something new thanks to the team of experts who lead destination-focussed lectures. Alternatively, you can spend some time browsing the boutiques to see if you can find a holiday treat to take back home with you.
