Just back from Silversea transatlantic - What a trip!

Jump to last reply

We made the 12 day crossing from Southampton to Boston (with day stops at Falmouth, Waterford, Cork, St. John NF, and Halifax). It was our first experience afloat and we loved every moment.

After watching a rerun of Auntie Mame the other nite, I had to paraphrase her famous line: Life is a banquet...and most poor suckers don't have the brains to get on Silversea!

After several days of outstanding, amiable service, one just starts to feel like part of a family - and totally cosseted. Our verandah suite was outstanding - and with temps never any lower than about 64, the verandah saw a bit of use. I'd thought our weather would be a good deal chillier/grayer.

Food was excellent quality - not fall-down/gourmet wonderful. But very good. The galley brunch is a special highlight. Small entertainment troupe does a bang-up job with gorgeous costumes and high-energy talent.

Be happy to answer any questions.
