  3. Silver Wind
A different cruise, working along the coast from Hamburg to Lisbon. Even with two weeks, our time in each port was not enough—except in Antwerp and Bordeaux, where we had two days. The food was first class. However, with a cruise like this I would have offered more menu items typical of the region being visited at each port. For example, the three ports along the Spanish coast have many wonderful food offerings, each typical of the culture. Most of the excursion guides were excellent; knowledge of the history, culture, and daily life. It is the nature of the beast, but after showing us an interesting neighborhood, they would say "look around; but you have 15 minutes before we move on." We were particularly impressed by visits to commercial markets—the one in Coruña was fabulous. That visit was followed by a visit to a nice tapas bar, where we had the local wine and freshly-prepared tapas. The crew was amazing—after one day we felt like family.

Excellent crew
