Silversea’s Seishin offers Asian fusion haute cuisine on the high seas

Cruise guests can experience Asian fusion cuisine at Seishin, a specialty restaurant found exclusively on Silversea Cruises Silver Spirit.  Seishin means “spirit” in Japanese, a fitting moniker I would say.

Seishin offers an eclectic Asian-fusion style menu with a gourmet twist

Cruise passengers can choose from either a 4 or 5-course dinner tasting menu for an additional $20 per person or for $30 diners can eat a 9-course dinner. I decided to go all-out and sample the 9-course dinner.

Seishin has space for no more than 30 guests who can expect to eat a variety of regional dishes from Japan, China, Thailand, Vietnam, and India.  Take a peek at the menus below to see what you will encounter when dining at this outlet onboard Silver Spirit.
