The number of nights for each attire is dependant on the number of days of the cruise e.g. 10 day cruise 5 casual; 2 informal and 3 formal and 12 day cruise 6 3 and 3 and for 14 day cruise 7 4 and 3. All cruises with 9 days or more in duration will normally have 3 formal nights balance up with the informal/casual.

Silversea was not meant to be!

By Barbara Hopley

Barbara Hopley's blog

On Monday 22 May I was booked to go on a ship visit of the ‘Silver Whisper’ by Silversea Cruises.

That’s how dedicated I am to see as many ships as possible as so much easier to sell when you have seen them.I had been looking forward to seeing this ship as have never seen a Silversea ship, it had been booked for a few weeks and I made my arrangements at home ...
