Oh how we danced on the night we were wed

An anniversary at sea to remember

Patti  Pietschmann

It doesn’t get more romantic that this. Our gorgeous 760-square-foot suite turns into a fantasy of  flashing lights and music. A CD belts out  Kenny Rogers best love songs. A luscious chocolate cake awaits on a beautiful table. We were celebrating our anniversary and Pedro, our Silver Suite butler surprised us by decorating the suite with candles, balloons, music and lights.

Living large

Silver Muse in Grand Turk

We lived large during a two-week cruise on Silversea’s Silver Muse.  It was like another honeymoon (we’ve had a few).  We never  wanted to leave  the suite. But  with 10 different dining venues   and several bars  and lounges it was hard to  stay  put. And then there were  glorious  ports  of  call: Barbados, St. Thomas, St. Barth’s, Antiqua, St. Kitts, Martinique and Grand Turk. There were only two  days at sea during this voyage   and we wished there were more because  the ship is so  inviting.

You can sit back  and relax  and  gaze at the wake from  huge windows  in different lounges  or your balcony.  Spend the day in a deck chair  by the large pool, hit the gym to work off the calories  from the gourmet meals, pamper yourself at the gorgeous spa, sip  free Champagne, cocktails, wine, specialty coffees  all  day anywhere  you  want. The crew, from  your suite staff to the restaurants and bars aim to please even though there  is no  tipping,  it’s included.

The Muse’s Silver Suites are located close to a gorgeous bar/lounge manned by Rodney the friendly barkeep who really knows his way around martinis

Fine dining

We  feasted on steaks, lobster, fresh fish, Asian food and specialty  dishes all washed down with that complimentary Champagne or wine (after  Martinis at one of the bars).  Of  course  there  were luscious desserts served  in the restaurants or the Arts Café—which was stocked with sinfully calorific goodies (thank goodness for the fitness  center).


Like every Silversea cruise we ever took, this was another for the books.  If you want to experience luxury at its best just contact a Pavlus travel specialist to set you up.
