Last night after filing my daily report, I took a stroll around Silversea’s elegant Silver Wind at 0130 in the morning. I’ve always thought a deserted ship at night is a beautiful thing. Each ship has its own unique characteristics and personality, and Silver Wind does not disappoint in that regard. From the gentle swaying of the curtains in the darkened Panorama Lounge on Deck 8 to the throbbing of the corridor between The Bar and the main staircase on Deck 5 that results from the engine casing and funnel uptakes below, there is little doubt in my mind that the Silver Wind is every bit as alive as you and I.

Today, though, we actually passed our first ships since departing Muscat as we made our way into port in Salalah, located on the southwestern edge of Oman. Photo © 2015 Aaron Saunders
