Agent Review: Luxury Cruising at its Best!
This past April I boarded the Silversea Silver Spirit for a 10-day cruise of the Mediterranean Sea, embarking in Lisbon, Portugal and ending in Monte Carlo, Monaco. I selected this cruise based on the itinerary and the time of the year. But what really excited me was the chance to sail on a luxury cruise ship. From the moment we set foot on the ship, till the day we left, we experienced the pinnacle of service and cuisine aboard one of the most elegant ship’s afloat. All the cabins are suites and each suite has a butler. Every day was a new adventure with so many options to choose from. We had six dining options at dinner, a beautiful spa and fitness center, a casino, six different bars to have complimentary cocktails and wine, an internet café, and boutiques. There was nothing this ship lacked.
The itinerary kept us busy 9 of the 10 days on the cruise. We began the cruise in Lisbon then stopped at Portimão, Portugal, Cadiz, Malaga, Ibiza, Valencia and Barcelona Spain and ended in St. Tropez, France and Monte Carlo, Monaco. In Malaga and Ibiza the ship stayed in port till 11pm. In Barcelona and Monte Carlo the ship overnighted. On the other days the ship sailed at 6pm. This gives the traveler a real chance of experiencing the best of what the ports have to offer. I have included just a few of the many photos I took on the cruise. This cruise had to be among one of my favorite trips. What could have been better?
Stay tuned for my next blog…..I have organized a wine cruise with Silversea on May 12, 2014 featuring Alpana Singh, master sommelier and restaurateur of the Boarding House. This should be an incredible trip!
