Alaska Inside Passage Silver Shadow Thumbs Up
Pros: Size is perfect. Service was personal. The dining portions are petite. This kept passengers mindful of proper portion sizes. You certainly can order seconds thirds , etc. SIlver Shadow is one cruise experience I enjoyed without gaining an ounce. LOVED THIS FEATURE. Some complained about it, I thought it to be Brilliant. By the 3rd day all staff knew names. No crowded deck chairs, no crowded anything.
Cons: The ship is getting a little Art Deco dated but it is maintained well. Onboard activities included classes on tanzanite, art sales, shoe insoles, well a little more sell sell sell than a luxury line should offer. I was expecting the boutique to roll out gold chains by the foot at any moment. Excursions are a bit pricey.
