For the first time in Silver Cruises’ 18-year history, three of the ultra-luxury line’s ships – Silver Cloud, Silver Wind and Silver Spirit – called in the same port on the same day. The historic convergence of the three ships took place off the coast of beautiful Corfu, a Greek island renowned for its lush green hills and pure white beaches.
Surrounded by the sparkling turquoise waters of the Ionian Sea, Silver Cloud, Silver Wind and Silver Spirit greeted each other by sounding their whistles as they sailed into this charming and sophisticated port.
Silver Wind and Silver Spirit are on 7-day sailings in the Greek Isles. Both itineraries include stops in Croatia and Italy, as well as Montenegro for Silver Wind. Silver Cloud is sailing from Venice to Barcelona on a 12-day Mediterranean voyage.
Corfu (or Kérkyra in Greek) is the second largest of the Ionian Islands, and a land rich in history and myth. It was likely the last stop for Homer’s Odysseus on his fabled journey back to his homeland of Ithaca. For Silversea, Corfu will always carry special significance, as the port that hosted an important milestone in the company’s own unfolding story.
