Silver Shadow Cruise Ship
With a higher space to passenger ratio and a higher staff to passenger ratio than nearly any other ship on the seas, Silver Shadow's mission is to treat her guests to a delightful, pampering vacation unlike any other. This 610-foot ship is large enough to carry more than 388 passengers, but that would mean that fewer guests would have ocean views, private verandas, and that there would be less open public space. Onboard this ship, intimacy and spaciousness are just as essential to her magic as are her elegance and luxury.
