Qeqertarsuaq, Greenland, August 29, 2015 — Alex and I aren’t the only father-son duo on Silver Explorer. Benjamin, 21, is also here with his father. They hail from Birmingham in the United Kingdom, and they appear to be having as good a time as we are having.
I can’t say whether expedition cruising on Silversea is the right kind of trip for all teenagers and young adults, but I can say that it is the right kind of trip for my son. He’s cruised on Disney’s flagships, Royal Caribbean’s big ships and Carnival’s Fun Ships, but he prefers the adventure-seeking, thought-provoking expeditions offered by Silversea. The best trip of his life thus far: Russia’s Far East last August on Silver Discoverer. That trip certainly ranks high in my book of favorites as well.
