Day 11 – Piraeus, Greece

It’s hard to believe that we covered so much ground — and sea — during  our 10 days on Silversea.

To think that our voyage began about a week and a half ago seems unreal. How could we have possibly experienced so much in so little time?

We boarded in Rome, docked in Naples, sailed past Strombolli, docked in Messina, spent a day at sea, called for a morning in Greece, continued to Cyrpus (where we enjoyed an ATV adventure), then spent two days exploring Israel. Another sea day, followed by a full day in Santorini before ending our cruise on Halloween in Athens.

Captain Samuele Failla says we covered 2,192 nautical miles, the longest stretch of which was Messina to Aghios, Greece, 558 nautical miles.

My top three experiences were visiting Jerusalem, my birthday on board and our ATV adventure in Cyprus. I also enjoyed our in-suite breakfast on almost all mornings and grilling on the Pool Deck.
