Remaining in a Silver Suite on Silversea Cruises’ new 596-passenger Silver Moon is akin to owning your have non-public mini-apartment while sailing the ocean blue. Simply place, these Silver Suites at 786 square ft (including a private veranda) afford additional house than the ship’s Deluxe Veranda Suites at 387 sq. toes (which includes its private veranda)
Nonetheless, Silver Suites also have fewer lofty fares than greater category suites (Owner’s, Grand or Royal Suites). As a final result, they’re more and more well-known with guests who want far more room but not the “entire shebang,” or want to move items up a bit for a exclusive occasion. Offered on every single Silversea ship, Silver Suites generally offer you such features as a separate living/eating and bedroom spaces, a grasp bathtub and a guest lavatory, as well as outstanding storage space and a substantial teak veranda/balcony.
To get a perception of the ultra-luxury pricing, comparatively, here is an instance… At push time, for Silver Moon‘s 10-working day roundtrip sailing from Athens on September 6, 2021, double occupancy fares started off at: Owner’s Suites ($21,500), Silver Suites ($14,900) and Deluxe Veranda Suites ($10,300). Two of Silver Moon’s Silver Suites also provide a two-bed room, 1,119-square-configuration by incorporating an adjacent Panorama Suite. Which is $19,700 for each man or woman double.
The newly christened Silver Moon has 34 Silver Suites, together with one available Silver Suite, No. 931, which Journey Agent stayed in. Not all Silversea ships have obtainable Silver Suites—although all have some accessible accommodations.
Moving into No. 931
In the living and eating space, this accessible Silver Suite has a marginally narrower footprint than just one of the ship’s typical Silver Suites. Why? That allows for a larger bedroom and a humongous master tub with a wheel-in shower. So, a guest working with a wheelchair can move freely through the suite without having obstacles.
Arriving at No. 931, the visitor basically faucets his or her room critical card against a panel outside the house the suite doorway. It is “open sesame,” so to communicate, as the door unlocks. After evenly pushed, it then opens automatically.
Strolling down the extensive entry corridor (shown in the photograph at proper), one particular to start with passes a door to a guest fifty percent-bath. That’s comprised of a rest room and sink yet another door within that 50 percent bathtub sales opportunities to the grasp bath and its shower.
Also along the entry corridor is a wall of storage cabinetry. A person significant cupboard opens to expose vast, deep cabinets. Additionally, friends will locate two separate dresses hanging closets, both equally sporting lower bars for simple achieve.
Considerably pure gentle flows into the major/residing eating space place, thanks to two sets of sliding glass doors—one in the dining location, another in the residing area—both with sheer curtains or light-blocking kinds.
Desk and Dining Space
When it is time to chow down, visitors will learn a eating table with two cozy chairs (there’s a great deal of area for four, so it’s uncomplicated to accommodate a person or even two diners seated in wheelchairs).

A substantial, wall-mounted flat-display Television set is adjacent to the dining desk and offers a sturdy leisure/data menu. The display is large more than enough to be seen in the residing room spot throughout the suite.
In between the eating and living areas is a rectangular credenza. Its doorway opens to reveal a mini-refrigerator, glassware and an ice bucket. This mini-fridge is stocked with the guests’ favorite drinking water (continue to, sparkling or both equally) geared up by the suite’s butler as needed in glass bottles, as well as sodas, wine and beer.
Atop the credenza is a tasty selection of Maison Naja gourmand nuts (see photo at ideal)—such as enormous cashews with a contact of pepper or organic and natural almonds with thyme and chili pepper. These proved addictive at moments.
In addition, the credenza’s marble major is home to an illy coffee maker and many espresso and cappuccino pods. That mentioned, if cruisers like regular American coffee most mornings, it’s simply organized with the butler.
Our butler shipped that coffee at 7 a.m. most mornings and positioned it on the dining home desk. So, even if a guest is however sleeping or having all set for the day in the individual bedroom, the company flows.

Throughout from the dining desk is a writing desk with a marble surface, a snug chair, numerous wall plugs, a resourceful take note holder with a useful USB port on the side, make-up mirror and far more. The wall above the desk has a big mirror.
Living Place Space

On arrival, a bottle of Cuvee Rose Champagne by Laurent-Perrier awaits—chilling in an ice bucket on the living home table.
Now, for the living space fundamentals. Our evaluation is that this place is comfortable, compact and properly open on just one aspect to accommodate a wheelchair. It is composed of in essence 3 parts of furniture, including a pull-out couch with 4 soft orange pillows and a gray cashmere toss. We loved the adjacent, effortless-to-slide-into seat.
The huge coffee desk is a bit higher than normal height and can be moved to a person facet or even more out in the place for versatility. Wall-mounted adjustable temperature panels are located in the two the dwelling and bedroom parts.
Master Bedroom and Bath
The learn bedroom’s king-sized bed can be split into two twins, if preferred, and is e-book-ended by two massive end tables with lamps, sufficient plugs and storage room. There was enough room for a wheelchair to pass on both of those sides of the bed.
This bedroom also had sizable storage room (cabinetry which is seems equivalent to what’s found in the entrance corridor), as effectively as a individual harmless and a second, wall-mounted flat-display Television.
Offered the accessibility friendliness of this suite, the grasp bath was humongous.

Outfitted with numerous handrails, the obtainable learn toilet has a rest room, bidet, a singular sink (a second sink, even though, is offered by utilizing the adjacent visitor half-tub) and wander-in shower with a massive, elongated seat.
Doorways between both equally the bedroom and the master bath are on sliding tracks (buried in the ground, so that they are simply crossed).
Travel Agent noticed extra floor drains seen in three spots—between the shower area and the principal lavatory floor between the rest room and the visitor bath and concerning the lavatory and the bedroom. With the flat, wheel-in shower flooring, people drains avoid water from flowing into any other places of the suite.
Nightly turndown services in the grasp bedroom is made up of a product-coloured leather-based portfolio that folds out and is put on the bed. Listed here, visitors will find the upcoming day’s application, a room service menu to fill out, postcards and a chocolate.

The Obtainable Veranda

This suite’s two sets of sliding glass doors opened to established up a wheelchair-welcoming surface across the door body. Inside the suite itself, there also was a slight increase in the flooring to the door body. (See image beneath.)
Outside, the suite’s private teak-floored veranda offered two significant lounge chairs and a desk and two chairs. The housekeeper established up cushions and towels for the duration of the day.
We spoke to the butler about the house as, offered all the home furnishings, it appeared a little bit restricted to accommodate a wheelchair. He spelled out that just one of the lounge chairs could conveniently be taken off by crew and the desk and chairs could be repositioned to one conclude of the veranda—thus giving additional deck space.
Silver Moon has a approximately 1-to-1 ratio of company to crew. Every single suite on the ship receives both butler and separate housekeeper company. Our activities have been superb in our situations, Eno and Evelyn hailed from the Philippines and spoke great English.
The butler will assistance guests unpack if desired arrange for any shore excursion modifications or include-ons refill the mini-bar’s water bottles replenish wine bottles or sodas as essential provide laundry and hold it in the closet supply place services make eating reservations and far more.
As for 1-on-just one company, Eno requested regularly, day immediately after working day, if he could do nearly anything else for us. The provider was welcoming, not stuffy, and customized, not rote.
One particular great touch is that the butler automatically cleans eyeglasses (normal glasses and sun shades) and leaves them in place—topped with a wonderful Silversea symbol black cleaning fabric. Housekeeping provider in just the suite is really fantastic, as well. Travel Agent’s housekeeper cleaned carefully, vacuumed, refreshed towels and toilet facilities, and cleaned surfaces.

Housekeepers also meticulously wipe down the outside the house furnishings and sliding glass doorways, so attendees get the best sights.
Evelyn also asked on many occasions if there was something else she could get us, or if we were hungry and would like to buy some thing from space assistance.
Service in this suite and during Silver Moon was caring, qualified, pleasant, non-intrusive and highly attentive. Basically place, it was exceptional. All crew members also appeared ecstatic to be again at do the job the moment once again.
