Nearly all of the lavish suites feature 2 TVs, butler service, luxury bathrooms and private teak verandas. While many upscale ships have a mix of fine dining facilities, Spirits outdoor option is a standout providing the feel of being on your own yacht. As you watch the sun setting over the Caribbeans still waters, hardly a more special dining experience can be enjoyed. The wealth of land excursions and on board activities keeps guests busy, and the staff can arrange custom trips as well.
On January 12, Silversea will start accepting reservations for Spirits Grand Inaugural Voyage to South America (embarking January 21). If the 91-day journey (or its $40,000 price tag) falls outside your range, the ship also offers a variety of 7-day voyages (in addition to more traditional, longer ones) throughout the Caribbean, Mediterranean, and South America (click to read about our editor, Elissa’s, recent sailing there on the Silver Cloud). Plus, there is great value pricing, with specials currently running that include 60% off early booking rates and free air making for a very smart splurge. I encourage travelers to explore the Silver Spirit as a terrific option for luxury cruising. But you better hurry 2010 voyages are over 70% sold out!
