Silversea Cruises christened their latest ship, the Silver Discoverer, at the end of March. The ship is their 8th overall, and the 3rd of their Expedition ships.
Silversea’s fleet is known as having some of the smallest ships in the cruising industry, but they are also some of the most welcoming and luxurious vessels.
Silver Discoverer accommodates just 120 guests per sailing. This ensures every passenger gets immediate attention and no concern is ever left waiting. In fact, on this ship there is one crew member for every 1.25 passengers.
The seven-deck ship has 62 suites, each with butler service, fully stocked refrigerators, Pratesi bed linens and bathrooms decorated in marble. There are several public spaces including the formal restaurant and casual poolside grill, along with a salon, a fitness center and a massage room on Deck 7. [Read more →]

The experience of a luxury cruise is beyond compare. The service, the intimate ships and the ultra-fine amenities are something everyone should experience at least once. However, many people don’t give themselves the opportunity to experience a luxury cruise because the cost of such a trip seems too expensive. Well, get ready to have your mind blown, because we are here today to tell you that you shouldn’t be afraid of the cost of a luxury cruise. In fact, that price is a lot friendlier than you think.
As you read on we will compare the price of a luxury cruise to a cruise on a premium cruise line. We’ve compared two 7-night Alaska cruises that set sail in May 2013. Before we even start comparing financials, there is the sheer size of the ships. With a premium ship you will be sailing with roughly 3,000 others. With a luxury ship you are sailing with between 200 to 500 other passengers. The intimacy of a smaller ship means less waiting in lines, more attention to your needs. The luxury ships also allow for a better guest-to-staff ratio. On luxury cruises you might find one staff member to every 1.4 passengers, whereas premium is about 1 staff member to every two guests. It may not sound like much, but it makes a huge difference on board.
Check our our value comparison below, and then continue reading for a more detailed breakdown of the costs.
