Is The Retreat on Seabourn Encore worth the cost or not?
Seabourn Cruise Line's collaboration with Thomas Keller, chef and restaurateur of a trio of Michelin-starred restaurants--The French Laundry, Per Se, and Bouchon—as an advisor in their culinary department, has proven to be a winner.
In the past year I’ve had the pleasure of sailing on three new luxury ships: Regent Explorer, Silver Muse, and now Seabourn Encore. I’m not a fickle person, but my loyalty to Silversea just might be wavering a bit since embarking in Singapore on the Encore.
Cruising is a great way to vacation, but traveling there luggage free is simply priceless.
Just about everyone will agree one of the most important aspects of a vacation are the views, particularly those that knock your socks off.
Those cruisers who have already seen Rome and just can’t bear to take the 1.5-hour trip there and back from the port of Civitavecchia should absolutely consider a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Tarquinia and Cerveteri, two Etruscan cemeteries reflecting two very different burial practices.
It took five trips in Italy to finally make it to the island of my dreams, Capri. Something always seemed to get in the way, so when I found out the Silver Muse made a stop at Sorrento on my sailing, the very first thing I did was line up a private tour guide to make the most of our day there.
On all luxury cruise ships, public spaces are of the utmost importance since they are the places you’ll spend much of your waking hours, particularly on sea days. And Silver Muse does not in any way disappoint.
