This is the first Silversea cruise we have been able to do for two years thanks to the pandemic. However now we have flown to Venice and after a long tedious embarkation procedure have finally boarded Silver Dawn. So good to be back in a suite on the ship and to meet our butler. Sadly the crew are all wearing masks and we have to wear them on the tour buses and tenders but a lot of people have had enough and are not bothering. After all we couldn't get on the ship unless we had been vaccinated and had a negative test. Great to get to the pool bar for that first drink and then a lovely dinner as we sailed away over to Croatia. The first day we were moored in Split which is a lovely city but we had been before so we opted for the tour to Trogir, a lovely old town once occupied by the Venetians. A gentle walk around the town and Cathedral with a beer on the seafront got us into holiday mood. The following day we had moved a short distance down the coast to Hvar, an island with old Greek and Roman remains. A coach took us to Starigrad an old town with museum, monastery and church followed by wine and refreshments in a little cafe which was fun. Finally a short trip around the fort above Hvar with great views. The sun was shining so all was well with the world
