Wow, what a fantastic adventure! Silver Spirit is a beautiful ship, crew is attentive, incredibly service oriented. The destinations were amazing, a blend of nature adventure and opportunities to sample local culture and events. Silver Sea's all inclusive approach makes everything smooth, no awkward moments when meeting with friends or meeting new friends about who gets the tab. Wine enthusiasts, foodies and just plain adventuresome folks with means should consider Silver Seas.
One complaint, smoking!!! Beware that half the pool deck, the pool bar, the outside dining at La Terrazza and outside lounge at Panorama are all smoking areas. Though only a very small percentage of the guests were smokers (perhaps 20 guests of 550?), a few dedicated chain smokers made life miserable in the above venues. Given that smoking is increasingly a habit most reflective of older, less affluent folks, why does Silver Sea dedicate so much space to a shrinking demographic?
In retrospect, a wonderful adventure, we've booked 2 more Silver Seas cruises and are loyal customers.
