By Norah Bradford.
One of the most incredible ways to see the world is by water. After all, the Earth is comprised of over two-thirds water, making it the logical way to access many unique and interesting places. While some might overlook cruising as a means of travel, just think: A cruise offers you the chance to disconnect and visit several locations in one trip without having to pack and unpack a suitcase, or endure multiple transfers. Now imagine taking a cruise with an expert, luxury line possessing ships with a few hundred passengers and a high crew-to-guest ratio—a five-star home away from home. Now imagine participating in one—or even all six—incredible Silversea Cruises voyages commencing next year. The sea is the limit…
