I'm considering a Silversea cruise for later this year, but am concerned about my boyfriend and I being the youngest people on board, and whether all the activities, food, etc. will be targeted to a different demographic. We're in our late 30s... I know most Silversea cruisers are more likely to be 50+.
Can any of you who've been on Silversea comment? Do you regularly see others in their 30s/40s on board? Any comment about whether Silversea targets various ages in their planning?
We have been on two Silverseas cruises on one the casino and bars were empty by 10:30 pm very dull. On the next one our company had rented the whole ship for a week, much younger crowd. We kept things hopping till 3 am. But if your going with the normal with the normal crowd don't expect much excitement.
I don't know if this posting is too late or not but I can give you my 2 cents worth. I can certainly understand your concerns and the youngest crowd I booked on a Silver Seas cruise is in their 40's. They love the cruise line pricy as you know but they just love the service. Top Knotch. However, for excitement and activities I would stick to Royal Caribbean. Heck certain ships you can roller skate around the deck and mountian climb. Younger crowd too.
Whatever you decide have a great trip

Just thought I'd close the loop for future readers....
we're just back from 11 days on the Silver Whisper in Dec 2007... there were about 360 passengers onboard, and probably at least half a dozen couples in their 30s/40s, as well as some groups that appeared to be families with "adult children" in their 20s (perhaps even a few teens...). There was definitely more of an age mix than I'd expected, which was nice.
We did europe summer 2006 and we are 48/50 where were maybe 10 couples younger(honeymooners) and around our age but that didn't really matter your exhausted at night and it is nice to meet other people of this class ship and hear they advice on sailing. Most have been before.My only complaint casino not much 3 slot machines and two tables also no varity of food limited menus. However food was good. I think you go for large stateroom amazing service on call maid service it is your 5 star hotel on water.
Depending on the length of the cruise you go on depends on the age of the passenger in 2008 we went on the Silver Shadow to the Carribean for 9 days and this year we did a cruise on the Silver Whisper for 16 days and the crowd was much older and the night life stopped at 11:00P you could shoot a cannon through the bars. If you want to pampered and have everything done for you this is the cruise line for you.
