  3. Silver Spirit
This was my 23rd cruise as a single with Silversea and my 9th cruise on Silver Spirit since its debut in 2009.although I have cruised with other lines I have always much enjoyed cruises with Silversea and the superb service together with top class food and a very friendly efficient,professional crew. I boarded smoothly and quickly at Civitavecchia and the first week visited Livorno,Monte Carlo,Antibes,Marseilles and Barcelona.The second cruise visited Ibiza,Cartagena,Malaga,Gibraltar,Cadiz and Portimao and I finished by flying home from Lisbon.I tend not to book the excursions preferring to have a walk in the ports of call each morning and then spend the afternoon relaxing in the private thermal suite of the Spa.o The ship had about 500 guests and nearly the ratio of one to one with the crew.There is much public space on this good looking,clean ship although do not expect much arranged entertainment on board:the afternoon feature the enjoyable Trivia Quiz and this is followed by a golf putting competition for prize points,which can be changed at the end of the cruis for small gifts.I did the morning Silver Quiz sheet available in the extensive Library and IT area. The evening entertainment included shows presented by the six Voices of Silversea:I enjoyed the Opera show best of all. I always had the same single table in the main restaurant and had the same waiter who got to know your preferences quickly.I was invited to dine with the Captain on the second week and also enjoyed the dining company of two officers on other evenings.It was always a memorable meal and when I returned to the main lounge bar after the meal there was always the coffee and delicious chocolates set out on a table. The best feature of the ship,which is privately owned by an Italian family is the insistence of arriving as a passenger and leaving as a friend. I always book on board for the following year and in 2018 I will cruise on the smaller Silver Whisper for my annual luxury cruise on this outstanding line.

Cabin Review

Cabin 508
I had a verandah 1 suite on deck 5 for two 7 night cruises back to back.the suite was with separate bed and lounge areas together with a verandah of course.This was my second holiday in this suite and it was ideal with separate wardrobe area with adequate drawer space and safe;there was a separate bath and shower.My butler was first class and most helpful every day.
