I always regret using superlatives in print. They often come back to haunt. Just when you think you’ve experienced the best, something that tops it comes along.
Today, Silver Spirit showed us a few things that were worthy of superlatives. From around 8:30 a.m. until about 10 a.m., we cruised Europe’s most southerly fjord (a superlative of fact). Those 2.5 hours certainly ranked among the most beautiful transits I’ve ever experienced. But I’ll save the superlative for now and let you be decide. Check out the photos that accompany this post and judge for yourself.
At the end of the transit, Silver Spirit docked within steps of the Old Town of Kotor. No free shuttle into town as was the case in Corfu yesterday. We didn’t need it. Kotor was at the bottom of the gangway.
With such easy access, we laid out a plan. In the morning, we would walk through the Gradske Zidine (the ancient Town Walls) and hike the 1,300 steps to Tvrdjava Sv Ivana (St. John’s Fortress), 853 feet above sea level, and offering commanding views over Kotor and the bay.
We’d return to the ship for lunch, gather our swimsuits and join a Silversea shore excursion, Speedboat Adventure to Blue Cave. Dinner would be well deserved tonight.
