My fiance and I have booked our honeymoon with Silversea for August 2002 from Venice to Barcelona. We are in our 30's and would like to know if other couples in our age bracket will also be on board. I look forward to any culinary demonstrations. Any comments from seasoned sailors?
You are indeed fortunate to take Silverseas. The ships are stunning and the staff is superb. I've never been as pampered in my life!!
In August you may find a few families but the passengers are quite a bit older. But the same was true when I sailed and yet I met some fascinating people and had a great time. Because the ships are small, you will bond quickly with others.
I just read your message so I hope this quickie review isn't too late. Mitch and I had a FABULOUS CRUISE. We were on our honeymoon and pretty much kept to ourselves but welcomed an occassional evening of dining with new people. We met a great family from the UK, and a couple of older couples from the South. They partied like they were in their 20s! It was fun to be the youngest couple on the cruise. You do get some special attention because it's so obvious that you're on your honeymoon!
I attached a picture of Mitch and me in Capri. We fondly look back at the cruise and can't wait to book another for our 5th anniversary.
