First time SilverSeas after several Regent cruises. We were looking forward to trying Silver Seas and their new ship Silver Dawn seemed the ideal opportunity. It turned out to be the first cruise as earlier trips were put off.
First impressions were not good with a 100 metre queue for embarcation - fortunately not raining in Lisbon but a cold breeze. There were only 2 check in desks operational and it took about 2 hours to get through.
Once aboard we had a quick drink and a pizza as we had worked up an appetite queueing. First impressions of the ship and cabin were good - it is a new ship after all.
