I sailed on the Shadow Aug. 23 and have no complaints. Food and service were both great. I enjoyed the shore excursions. The Anan Bear excursion was cancelled due to a lack of interest on the part of the bears. Some people went there on a private tour and saw no bears so I was glad I hadn't wasted the money. I opted for early embarkation which went very smoothly. Disembarkation was a little hectic. Silver Sea's owner was onboard so things may have been extra sharp because of his presence. I would like full-size kleenex in the bath and cabin. The public bathrooms had them. All in all, a wonderful experience.
