Caribbean fan Tamara Hinson braves the waves for her first cruise of the islands


a travelweekly.co.uk


lthough I’ve been to several Caribbean islands, I’d never arrived at any of them by ship. Perhaps it was the fear


of falling in love with one island only to be whisked away to the next, but I hadn’t yet got on board with the idea of a Caribbean cruise – until now. After a week sailing the high seas with Silversea Cruises on the recently stretched 608-passenger Silver Spirit, I’m a convert. I can’t deny that Silversea’s reputation as one of the world’s most luxurious cruise lines wasn’t a factor. Floating away from a palm-fringed Caribbean island is significantly less painful when you have a butler on hand to top up your complimentary minibar. But even more compelling was the fact that the


Caribbean draws UK cruisers back year after year, and I wanted to see why.


SEA STAYS The cruise I’ve signed up for starts in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and finishes in Puerto Rico. Our first stop is Samaná in the Dominican Republic, but first I’ve got two days at sea – something I’m dreading. Surely all waves look the same after an hour or two? The first surprise comes when my issue of


Daily Chronicles – the newsletter delivered to passengers – slides under my door. A packed timetable of events starts at 7am (a sunrise walk with fitness instructor Ana) and lasts until 11pm, when DJ Bart takes to the decks.
