A Luxury Eleven-Island Caribbean Cruise

With Silversea's 'Silver Shadow'

Bonus USD$250 per suite, on-board credit

The Caribbean Islands have one thing in common – the sparkling Caribbean Sea.
The islands contrast and surprise visitors with their own character and a varied history with Spanish, English and French influences.

Become absorbed in the atmosphere, culture and everyday life of the British Virgin Islands, The Leeward Islands, Martinique, St Vincent, Trinidad & Tobago, Grenada and Antigua & Barbuda as you relax on board ‘Silver Shadow.’

With less than 400 guests, ‘Silver Shadow’ is able to visit the small, more intimate ports of the Caribbean with their diversity, history, language and topography. Don’t forget the cricket!

You will be pampered from embarkation to dis-embarkation with a butler service and bar set-up in your stateroom at your request.

December is prime-time weather to visit with balmy days and evenings – the cruise of a lifetime!
