My 17-year-old daughter and I are cruising the northern coast of Spain this week on Silver Whisper. We’ve both been impressed by this region rich in culture and tradition. Other guests who we have spoken with concur.

We’ve captured each day in video, which we’ve included in this post, as well as in stories and photos. We’ve provided links for those as well.

There are still a couple of days to go in Spain before we end our cruise Saturday in Lisbon, so keep checking back. You won’t want to miss our next video, filmed in Gijon, Spain, where the art of pouring cider is somewhat of a spectacle and one that we captured on our camera.

We experienced Hemingway’s Pamplona on a so-called Silversea Cruises’ Silver Shore Collection excursion from Saint-Jean-de-Luz, France, where Silver Whisper was anchored. Check out the video below or read the story: In Hemingway’s Footsteps, Visiting Pamplona, Spain, On A Silversea Excursion
