Thank you so much for your prompt response and useful information.
Have you cruised from Venice to Barcelona? traveling with cousins who chose Silver Sea. I'm a bit put off by what I here is the stuffiness of this ship.
No We were suppose to go this month but due to health issues we had to cancel but I did a lot of research for Venice as we planned to arrive early to see the sites.
I am sure SS will be fine but they are a bit more formal for us
Have a look at Oceania if you like the smaller less formal ships.
Enjoy the cruise
