Reuniting with Silversea’s Silver Spirit on a Mediterranean Adventure
It’s no secret that Silversea’s ultra-luxurious Silver Spirit is one of my favorite cruise ships. From the moment I first set foot aboard her back in late 2010, her soothing décor, gracious service and convivial atmosphere made me feel right at home.
Now, four years after my last voyage on her, I’m headed back to Silver Spirit, joining her in Barcelona for a taste of the Silversea I know and love – and for a look at what’s new in advance of the launch of the Silver Muse next spring.
A Winning Itinerary
Voyage 5609 will take us from the beautiful city of Barcelona, Spain on April 26,2016 to Civitavecchia, Italy – the port for Rome – where the elegant Silver Spirit will dock on May 2. In between is a cornucopia of ports that line the French and Italian Riviera.
At just six days in length, Silversea has managed to pack some real gems into this quick voyage. Obscure and off-the-beaten path, these are the ports of call that big ships typically sail right past. But carrying just 540 guests, Silver Spirit is perfectly suited to these types of locales. Still, the itinerary has a mix of “big-name” ports of call, too, ensuring that cities like Monte Carlo and Rome aren’t missed.
