Departure from Lisbon

Breakfast on Silver Spirit

Day 2 of our cruise began with the Silver Spirit still docked at Lisbon's Terminal do Cruzeiros de Santa Apolónia. The temperature was a few degrees short of tropical, so we had the outside deck of La Terrazza almost to ourselves at breakfast.

La Terrazza's buffet was a cornucopia of goodies, both healthy and non-healthy. On Durant's plate above, you can see a Danish pastry (excellent), butter and chocolate croissants (good), a breakfast sausage, fruit, smoked mackerel, and smoked trout.

The buffet also had eggs, pancakes, waffles, breads, several types of ham, bacon, smoked salmon, two types of herring, other kinds of fruit, nuts, cereals, and an assortment of gluten-free baked goods. If we'd wanted, we could have had omelettes, pancakes, or waffles made to order and brought to our table. (Cheryl had banana pancakes on another morning and gave them a thumbs-up rating.)

Our only disappointment was with the breads. They weren't very interesting, as you can see in this photo of Cheryl's plate:

(We should concede that breads aren't always easy to make well on ships, although the bakers on S.S. France managed to produce superb petits pains back in the day.)
