CRUISE SILVER SHADOW


Silver Muse, Shadow is the last in the fleet to undergo renovation. One of the biggest changes on Shadow is on deck five, an area I’m instantly wowed by when I join the ship in St Lucia for a preview cruise. The sailing is hosted by the line’s managing directors Peter Shanks (UK & Ireland, Middle East and Africa) and Mark Conroy (Americas), who are always on hand to listen to feedback.

Every carpet, curtain, TV and element of the suites has been updated, all doors are in a lighter finish making the corridors look much brighter, and all public areas have been refreshed. Customers seem to be loving it.”

Central to it all is the new cafe with a changing array of light bites, Illy coffee and a 24-hour bar service. The cruise line may now have sold a 67% stake

to Royal Caribbean Cruises, but its roots are still very much Italian – as are all its captains – and many products have Italian roots, such as the Bulgari bathroom amenities and sumptuous Etro bathrobes. One of the restaurants onboard, La Terrazza, also channels Italian flair while championing culinary traditions – it uses buffalo
