Sail the coasts of Spain, Portugal and France all the way to the UK with award-winning Winemaker Renee Ary and fellow Duckhorn Portfolio enthusiasts.  Enjoy visiting the shady streets of Lisbon by trolley bus, marveling at Bilbao’s iconic gallery and perhaps enjoying a glass or two of Porto’s eponymous wine.

With three days in Bordeaux you will soon know your St. Emilion from your Sauternes, while St. Malo’s Mont St. Michel is, quite simply, a must see.  Rouen offers a chance to stroll the cobbled streets and admire the half-timbered medieval houses during your overnight stay in this quaint French town.

Your ship, the new and ultra-luxurious Silver Dawn carries just 546 guests, ensuring the perfect balance between choice and intimacy. All accommodations are spacious suites that include around-the-clock butler service.  Enjoy private Duckhorn onboard events with your hosts, including receptions, wine tasting and seminar, and a very special winemaker’s dinner featuring exquisite Duckhorn Portfolio wines hand-selected by Renee Ary.

About The Ship

Introducing: Silver Dawn

A new world of luxury is waiting aboard Silver Dawn.  Both classic yet modern, Silver Dawn is the natural evolution of the Silversea fleet.  Large enough to offer eight dining options – including the superb Sea and Land Taste (S.A.L.T.) program – yet small enough for the famed Silversea onboard ambience.  Silver Dawn inherits the best features of her sister ships Silver Muse and Silver Moon, but is in a class all of her own. Sumptuous suites, outstanding itineraries plus cutting-edge design and technology, Silver Dawn sets new standards of luxury.  Let’s wake up to a new dawn with Silversea.
