Cruise Alaska with Silversea


Sail along the pristine Alaskan coastline on a seven day voyage aboard Silversea’s ultra-luxury vessel, Silver Shadow. From calving glaciers to incredible wildlife encounters, guests will be captivated by Alaska’s natural charm and rugged beauty.

Setting sail from Seward on 21 May 2015, one of Alaska’s oldest and most scenic communities, Silver Shadow cruises past the magnificent Hubbard Glacier before docking in Sitka. Whilst at this port, guests have the option to join an exclusive catamaran excursion through lavish natural wonders, awe-inspiring ice peaks and secluded regions with bounties of marine life.

Continuing her voyage, Silver Shadow stops in Alaska’s capital, Juneau, which rests on a dramatic hillside frontier that contrasts its cosmopolitan allure of fine museums and restaurants with its dense forest wilderness. Silver Shadow then travels to Skagway, before visiting the colourful town of Ketchikan, where guest can enjoy an authentic fishing experience, glide through the rainforest canopy on a zip line adventure or delve into the rich heritage of this bustling waterfront community on one of Silversea’s optional excursions.

Sailing through the Inside Passage, Silver Shadow guests can make the most of the Observation Lounge and get glimpses of wildlife-filled fjords and lush island scenery, before disembarking in Vancouver, Canada on 28 May 2015.

Guests aboard Silversea Alaska cruises that begin or end in Seward will receive complimentary transfers to/from the Anchorage Airport Train Station via chartered rail service. The 4.5-hour train ride between Seward and Anchorage along the Alaskan Kenai Peninsula is said to be the most scenic in all of Alaska, as it travels through valleys and areas rich with flora and fauna.

Prices are per person starting from AU$4,150 in a Vista Suite double occupancy. Silversea fares include: all-suite accommodation with butler service; gourmet meals with menus inspired by Relais & Châteaux; complimentary wines, Champagne and spirits served throughout the ships; and all gratuities.
