Don’t get me wrong Silversea is still a super cruise company but our latest voyage in The Silver Shadow showed that the silver is getting slightly tarnished. It used to be rather exciting...

Embarkation was as smooth as usual and we were delighted to find that the ship was only 80% full which made the dinner reservations very easy. In fact we made Champagne twice, La Terrazza five...
