On September 27, Silversea Cruises gathered three of its ultra-luxury ships in the Ionian port of Corfu, marking the first such event in the line’s 18 year history. Silversea’s newest, largest ship, the 36,000-ton SILVER SPIRIT (built in 2009) and its classic 17,400-ton SILVER WIND (built in 1995) were on seven night Greek Island sailings while its 16,900-ton SILVER CLOUD (a twin of SILVER WIND and the line’s first ship, introduced in 1994) was in the midst of a twelve night Venice-to-Barcelona voyage. The three yacht-like vessels converged in the outer harbor, saluted each other with whistle blasts and then sailed into Corfu.
