About

Ocean cruise

Sail between some of Europe’s best-loved cities aboard Silversea's brand-new ship Silver Dawn. Enjoying all-inclusive luxury, you’ll stop off everywhere from medieval towns in Spain to the glamorous French Riviera. Highlights include the hidden delights of Menorca and the ultra-scenic beauty of the Costa Brava, as well as palace visits and vineyards tastings in France and the glitz and glamour of St Tropez and Monte Carlo. Your final few days at sea see you sail to Italy, where you’ll visit three of its most famed regions – Tuscany, Portofino and Rome. Alongside it all, expect everything from helicopter flights to food and wine tours, as well as being treated to only the finest in Silversea luxury. Think open-seated dining and eight dining venues – including the superb Sea and Land Taste (S.A.L.T.) programme that offers local cuisine and insights into local food culture – alongside all inclusive-drinks, butler-served suites with private verandas and some of the best hospitality in cruising, with almost one crew member per guest.

Day by day itinerary

Day 1
UK to Barcelona

After included VIP airport lounge access, board your flight and arrive in Barcelona. You've got a few hours to explore – walk among the medieval Barri Gotic area, marvel at the Art Nouveau facades and stroll along La Rambla, making time to tour Gaudi's famed Sagrada Familia. Then, take your included transfer to the port to board the ultra-luxury Silver Dawn. Check in to your sumptuous suite – with its own private veranda and butler – before perhaps settling in for a sundowner at the Panorama Lounge for wonderful sea views. You’ve then got the choice of eight dining venues – all offering open seating – and we'd highly recommend the S.A.L.T. programme to sample excellent local cuisine.

Day 2
Porto Mahon, Menorca

Anchor in to Menorca today, whose streets are much-unexplored compared to its Mallorca and Ibiza neighbours. Here, pine-tree framed beaches, old towns, beach coves and tiny fishing villages make it a wonderful place to explore with a walking tour, pausing at prehistoric sites, national parks, soaring cliffs and marine reserves teeming with bird life. Alternatively, discover the coastal beauty of the region with a visit to the local beaches and traditional fishermen towns, home to excellent fish restaurants. Remember, all excursions can be organised directly from the ship, either before or during your cruise.

Stay: Silver Dawn

Day 3
Palamos, Spain

The monasteries and beaches of Palamos, the gateway to the Costa Brava, await you today. Highlights include learning more about artist Salvador Dali at the nearby Dali Theatre museum and the medieval castle owned by Dali himself as well as sampling local wine and tapas in the nearby vineyards of Finca Bell LLOC. We’d also highly recommend a S.A.L.T. experience here, where you’ll visit a local dairy farm and sample some local cheeses. At each port, there’s also the option to hire a private car or van and guide for a half or full day tour – it's a wonderful way to create your own bespoke itinerary in complete comfort. This evening, The Grill makes for a wonderful choice for pre-dinner cocktails before another gourmet dinner at the elegant Atlantide grill or Silver Note for tapas, accompanied by a nightly jazz and blues band.

Day 5
Marseille, France

France’s oldest city awaits today – Marseille. Here, faded streets frame the yacht-dotted port – filled with fishermen unloading fresh catches – dominated by the spectacular Notre-Dame de la Garde. It’s all best explored with a walking tour, or head to nearby charming Aix-en-Provence’s historic landmarks with its Old City, leafy boulevards and public squares lined with 17th-century mansions. It's also well worth visiting the local olive oil mills in the villages of Provence, or you could even head out on a tour and tasting in the famed Chateauneuf-du-Pape wine region. Why not sample La Dame tonight, Silversea’s signature French restaurant, to experience the epitome of sommelier-matched fine dining.

The glitz and glamour of St Tropez awaits you today, the French Riviera hotspot and holiday choice of the rich and famous. Explore with a stroll around the yacht-dotted harbour or head for a wine class and tasting in one of the nearby hilltop villages, walking among the medieval streets and tiny squares that lie in complete contrast to their St Tropez neighbour. For an extra-special excursion, you could even on a private helicopter ride over St Tropez for wonderfully panoramic views.

Stay: Silver Dawn

Day 7
Monte Carlo, Monaco

The glamour continues as you anchor in to Monte Carlo today.

Days 8-9
Tuscany

Anchor in to Livorno in Tuscany today where you’ve got a full two days to take advantage of one of Italy’s most beautiful regions. We'd highly recommend heading out of the city to immerse yourself in the exquisite beauty, art and architecture of Florence, medieval Lucca and Volterra or the famed monuments of Pisa. Of course, you can’t leave Italy without sampling the cuisine, and there’s everything from cooking classes at a luxury villa to private winery visits and truffle hunting on offer. In keeping with your surroundings, return each day to perhaps one of the Italian restaurants on board, either La Terrazza for authentic Italian recipes using fresh sustainable ingredients or Spaccanapoli for excellent pizzas, influenced by Naples' famed pizzerias. Then, why not finish the evening at the Venetian Lounge or stylish Connoisseurs Corner to catch up with new-found friends?

Stay: Silver Dawn

Day 10
Portofino

Your penultimate day sees you explore one of the Italian Riviera's most evocative regions – Portofino. Jutting out on its own peninsula, the city looks out on to lavish yachts, picturesque scenery, white-washed villas and local olive groves and vineyards. Explore with a visit to the region's tiny fishing villages, kayak among turquoise bays or browse the famed market stalls of nearby Rapallo. As it's your final day, why not head out for an (optional) lunch at one of the region's most luxurious hotels, the Belmond Hotel Splendido, for olive oil tasting and a gourmet lunch.
