My husband wanted a repositioning cruise and I didn't want to be at sea more than two days at a time. Given that we decided to cruise less than 90 days before departure this was the best option. We'd never sailed on SilverSea but friends ... Read more

Departed Tokyo on 7 May, ticket clearly marked Tokyo, but I am sure I was not the only person who went to Yokohama overnight pre-cruise. The fault of too much confidence due to too many cruises, I even went to the Yokohama Terminal, but it ... Read more

We sailed from Ushuaia to Cape Town via Falklands, South Georgia and Tristan da Cunha. The ship was less than half full, probably because there are many sea days and it is basically a re-positioning cruise but with such a difference. ... Read more
