Ngorngoro Crater is the largest intact caldera in the world, about 30 kilometers across. An estimated 25000 large mammals are resident in the crater, including a population of approximately 6000 resident wildebeest,zebra, giraffe, and around 70 lions. Visiting it should be a must on everyone’s list.
I had the distinct privilege of cruising on the Silver Spirit down the Dalmatian Coast-Venice Italy to Athens Greece.
Our routing took us to Zadar and Dubrovnik Croatia, Kotor Montenegro, Corfu Greece, Chania on Crete, Nafplia and ending in Athens, Greece.
Every detail to make clients comfortable is carefully planned with meticulous preparation.
Food specialties from all over the world are reflected in their fine dining: La Champagne for French, Terrazzo for Italian, and Japanese offerings at Seishi.
Silversea offers Butler service, Champagne and fresh fruit, Pratesi Italian bed linens and down duvets. Italian marble bath, walk-in closet,flat screen TV’s in both the bedroom and living room with movies, and satellite news programming. We had a choice between Ferragamo or Bulgari hypoallergenic bath amenities. Our mini bar was stocked with all our favorite beverages- for me- champagne. Yay!
We are welcomed with a tented area including a sofa and water station at the deck entrance each day upon returning from an intruiging excursion.
Our Butler, Sanjay Kumar is the perfect attendant. I had a bit of a cold and upon returning one afternoon, he had placed cut fruit on the coffee table, and boxes of tissues all over the suite. Always standing there with a beautiful smile, we are happy with Sanjay.
Silver Spirit’s capacity is 540 people. It is considered a smaller ship and we have a much easier time docking closer to the destination than the larger ships which have to moor in the bay.
