I had never subscribed to the notion of a “bucket list” before I discovered the magic of Silversea. But after I took my first Silversea voyage a few years back, aboard the Silver Spirit to the Greek islands with one of my close girlfriends, I knew there was something I just had to manage to do one day: Take a romantic Silversea cruise with a man! Easier said than done, of course. There was no one in the picture, and I started to feel that Mr. Right may have eluded me forever.
I did take another Silversea cruise to the Caribbean in 2013. Once again, it was aboard the Silver Spirit. But this time, I went solo. I had a fantastic time, but I still yearned to sail into the sunset with a romantic partner, and wondered if that might ever happen in my lifetime. Two years later, a miracle happened: I met the man of my dreams, and as our relationship progressed we fell madly in love. I started thinking about how amazing it would be if we could on a Silversea cruise together.
Almost a year later, my love Iain was about to turn 60. And my fantasy was about to be realized: We booked a Mediterranean Silversea cruise, happily, back aboard the Silver Spirit.
