Crossing the Atlantic on Silver Spirit

This article may contain referral links. Read our DISCLOSURE

When Alan and I plan international land tours, we like to end the trip with a cruise back home. That way, we only have one long international flight to begin the trip plus some sea days at the end of our travels to rest after a busy time of exploring.

We put our Transatlantic cruise tips to work and started planning. Here’s the result.

After 12 days touring in the south of Italy, we boarded the Silversea ship, Silver Spirit for a 21-day cruise Atlantic crossing that included a 7-day port intensive segment in the Mediterranean. Then we sailed along the coast of Spain before crossing the Atlantic to Ft. Lauderdale. We enjoyed some cruise excursions but also used repeat (to us) ports as sea days or as a time to explore on our own.

Although this was our third Atlantic Crossing, the experience was as unique and interesting as the first time. Of course, as always, Alan and I enjoyed dressing for formal night as well as other evenings on the ship. Read my tips about dressing for a luxury cruise in cruise wear for women over 50.

And the Angels Sang on Montserrat

Barcelona is a common port stop for many Mediterrranean cruise ships. However, if you’re looking for a unique experience, our excursion to Montserrat was a beautiful day in a mountaintop monastery filled with angelic voices.
