We are not big cruisers, preferring to usually travel by private tours or independently. However, this cruise offered some very unusual ports of call that would be difficult to visit without cruising. First, I will note that our port of ... Read more

After giving up on Crystal due to their diminution of services on board and the frenetic pace of the main dining room, we decided on Silversea. What a difference! Crystal still has the best cream soups at sea and the best enrichment ... Read more
