Hi everyone

My husband and I went on our first Silversea cruise this year, we had a 9 day voyage from Rome to Barcelona and we loved every minute.

I write a travel blog (just for fun) and have written up my thoughts on the ship on one post and the second post is all about the food!

Hope you enjoy reading

Thanks for a great report and photographs. We did our first Silversea cruise six years ago and loved it,needless to say we have cruised with Silversea ever since. If you can, do go to Antarctica best holiday ever. Once again thank you for your reporting Mrs B.

Very enjoyable reviews! Glad you had a wonderful trip. And I second what Elginjock has said; Antarctica on Silversea is astounding. Our first SS cruise was Antarctica, and only after that did we move up to the "regular" ships. Now that Silver Cloud is going to Antarctica, it should only get better.

Thanks again for posting and as the others have said, welcome to CC.

WOW! That was wonderful!! Enjoyed every word and loved the photos! We did our first SS cruise on the Spirit in April and loved every second. We're seriously considering a crossing next year! Thank you for your great report and hope to maybe meet you on another SS adventure!

Thank you for your kind words everyone. We absolutely loved our cruise with Silversea and would go on another one in a heartbeat! The Antarctica is definitely on our list.

Before we went I read nearly every post on here and got so many fantastic hints and tips.

What a great post @travelsofmrsb! It brings back great memories of our cruise with Silversea. We've never been treated so well. They make you feel like royalty and having a butler just makes the whole holiday that extra special. I can't wait to book with Silversea again.
