Silversea … The art of travel. The art of good living.
As your ship changes latitude and longitude, the menu changes to reflect the flavors of the region. The main event: inspired dining.
Step into The Restaurant and you know you've arrived for a very special dining experience. The Restaurant is elegant, but not stuffy.
The European-trained waiters are attentive and personable. The finest wines from an extensive list are carefully chosen and poured into sparkling European crystal glasses. Polished Christofle silverware is laid on crisp linens.
The stage is now set for the main event: inspired dishes created by Silversea's Master Chefs. These dishes are complemented by those of La Collection du Monde, created by the world-class chefs of culinary partner Relais & Châteaux. Marked by innovation and creativity, you're sure to enjoy these epicurean delights and a dining experience that rivals the best restaurants the world over.
Evening menus allow guests to sample a variety of dishes from the Silversea Signature Series which combine classic French cooking techniques with the savory spices and sumptuous fare of foreign lands. For lovers of authentic Italian cuisine, the ship's Terrace Café is transformed each evening into the alternative dining venue "Cucina Italiana" featuring delectable dishes from the different regions of Italy. Silversea also offers "Light & Healthy Cuisine" for guests wishing alternate menu selections for a low fat, low cholesterol and low sodium diet.
The ships feature single seating dining so that guests may dine when and with whom they wish.
Gratuities are included in your cruise fare. No additional tipping is required or expected.
Silversea cruise guidelines state that minors under the age of 18 must be accompanied, in the same or connecting suite, by a parent or other responsible adult over the age of 21. If the adult accompanying the minor is not their parent, a parental consent guardianship form must be signed by a parent or legal guardian and received by Silversea prior to sailing. Guests must be 21 years of age or older to purchase or consume alcohol. Silversea reserves the right to refuse to serve anyone who in its sole judgment may be under the influence of alcohol, or for any reason necessary in its judgement to preserve the health and safety of guests and employees.
The Silver Explorer cannot accommodate infants under the age of 1 year. Silversea Cloud, Silver Wind, Silver Shadow, Silver Whisper and Silver Spirit cannot accommodate infants under the age of 6 months. Guests must notify Silversea of any children between the ages of 6 months and 1 year who will be sailing on board the ship. A signed and notarised waiver will be required for all children between these ages. Although Silversea accepts guests over the age of 6 months (over the age of 1 year for Silversea Expeditions), there are no special programmes for children on board, and Silversea does not provide for the care, entertainment or supervision of children. Silversea reserves the right to limit the number of children less than 3 years of age.
In addition, the Zodiacs used for Silversea Expeditions are unable to accommodate children younger than 6 years of age. As Silversea does not provide babysitting services, an adult family member will be required to remain on board the Silver Explorer with their child(ren) during Zodiac excursions.
It’s a long way from Auckland to Alaska and return. That’s why you need the best Travel Agent to plan your cruise; find the perfect ship for you and deliver you home again. Michelle and the team are the best in the biz. We wouldn’t go further than NZ without them. Now, where to next?
Like a lot of people, a trip to Alaska was something we both had wanted to do for quite some time. However fitting it in was difficult. Sarah from Quay Travel managed that very efficiently. What to me was proving frustrating, sometimes there are too many options, was to Sarah, not a problem. She found for us a cruise which suited our timing, and then arranged the best flight options to get us to Seattle. YES - we thought that is all organised, however we had decided to sort out our shore excursions . For what ever reason the cruise line’s web site did not like me. A Quay Cruise staff member willingly took us under her care and quickly sorted matters out for us. My wife and I are very pleased to say that everything on our trip which was organised here in NZ by Quay Cruise happened when and as it should. Our thanks to Sarah and her Team - the hassle is taken out of travelling.
When we returned from Alaska I said to my husband we would never be going on another cruise - because nothing could beat that experience. Perfect in every way, excellently chosen accommodation and smooth transitions. Thanks Quay Cruise.
We first met Margaret when one of our grandsons attended the same daycare centre as her daughter. Since that time we have been fortunate in having Margaret take care of the planning for the cruises we have sailed on. She always pays attention to every detail in helping us plan our holidays and in particular her knowledge with regard to cruises means that we know we are getting the best deal and service available. She goes that extra mile to ensure every holiday is special.
