A little cruise ship nostalgia of a celebration at sea

Anniversary on Silversea

In a scene straight out of Lifestyles of The Rich and Famous, our  Silver Muse Silver Suite  became an eye-popping wonderland of  strobe lights,  red roses and candles with romantic  background music. Two graceful swans, made out of towels sat on our bed. Balloons, a chocolate mousse cake and a bottle of fine French Champagne sat ready for the taking.   All  the work of our wonderful butler Ryan while we were at dinner.Silversea Silver Shadow

We chose to dine at Le Champagne, the ship’s alternative restaurant.  The menu is a gourmet selection of luscious seasonal dishes created by the Grand Chefs of Relais & Chateaux such as caviar, foie gras, lobster, beef, tuna tartare, shrimp, scallops and other tantalizingly delicious dishes. You can supplement the meal with complimentary wines or purchase special premium labels.  The wine steward selected a  1999 Pomeroy Champagne for the occasion which we sipped with the first few courses before pairing courses with different styles.

After dinner we strolled on deck while the ship sailed from San Juan to St. Barths, then we went to our suite where the heretofore mentioned scenario of swans, candles and chocolate mousse awaited along  with a little more bubbly.

Signature Silversea pampering

While our butler spoiled us silly, so did the waiters who treat all guests like superstars. Not to forget the amazing chefs who prepare taste tantalizing gourmet dishes.  Of course every delicious moment on this 14-day Caribbean was a celebration in itself. The crew is outstanding. Butler Ryan exceptional and  Jorge, the veteran restaurant manager remains amazing.

We selected this  Silversea  Silver Muse  cruise particularly for ports we love such as  St. Barths, St. Kitts, St. Lucia, Barbados and other great islands waiting in the wings to keep the fun and celebration going.

We couldn’t have picked a better ship than the Muse for this special occasion. She is simply stunning. But then so are all the ships in this  fine fleet of luxury vessels. Hopefully we can celebrate another anniversary at sea soon. It’s just the most romantic venue for couples.

As we sail into 2021 I’m hoping to celebrate another anniversary at sea and many more after.   It is such a romantic way to celebrate love. Pavlus travel agents and I are also wishing all of you the opportunity to resume cruising and seeing the world.


Not only does Silversea now offer utterly inclusive fares,  right now pricing on the luxury line is about as reasonable as it get. Check out deals here.  You’ll want to book now as they won’t last. And of course Pavlus  agents are on call to set you up at 800-528-9300.
