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. Read Less

Decided to sail again with Silversea. This was our 10th cruise with the line. We keep coming back to Silversea because of the outstanding crew. The service is incredible! In just a few days the employees know you by name. The Butlers are the best and treat you like royalty and they somehow know your every need/want before you do. The itinerary was excellent. Each port offered some very unusual and unique excursions. We sailed from London (Tower Bridge) to Copenhagen,Visby, Stockholm, Tallin, St. Petersburg, Helsinki, Rostock, Kiel Canal, Amsterdam and back to London. It is thrilling to sail through Tower Bridge and down the Thames... the beauty of sailing on a smaller ship. Loved every excursion ... my favorite was attending the Russian ballet in St. Petersburg...speechless and a memory I will always cherish. Dining is superb with a variety of restaurants. The Hot Rock Restaurant is my favorite. It is located on the pool deck and is a most delightful way to spend your evening. You grill your own choice of meat or fish on a hot rock ... fun and delicious! Excellent, clean and cheerful cabins with a large verandas. The only area I found weak was the evening entertainment. The singers were fine solo in their own cabarets. Due to the different genres ... together they didn't click and I found it hard to listen. An evening in the bar is a better choice ... one would find the atmosphere classic and the music excellent. I'm ready to sail again! Read Less
