A luxury cruise ensures you will want for nothing as you discover the sights writes MICHAEL FERRANTE
The uber-luxury experienced by Trish Lakos and husband Peter aboard Silversea’s Silver Wind 17-night cruise from Tower Bridge, London, to Norway and return, has obviously been etched into their memories.
All the ship’s cabins are regarded “suites” and every passenger has access to a butler who will provide personal service during the voyage — from serving your favourite drinks from your bar fridge to restaurant reservations and in-suite dining service.
The Silver Wind is a small vessel (which allows it to cruise the Thames). It hosts under 300 passengers in luxury and has four restaurants — The Restaurant, the Pool Grill , La Terrazza (buffet by day, Italian by night) and La Dame for specialty dining.
Their cruise moved up the coast of Norway to Alesund, Svolvaer, Tromso, and Honningsvag, then south to Bodo, Trondheim, Molde, Olden, Bergen and Stavanger, then back to London.
“Each stop has something unique to be explored,” Trish says.
“But I would not recommend this cruise for those who have difficulty with steps because they are unavoidable.”
