Embarkation in Lisbon (2)

Cheryl on Silver Spirit

Our suite wasn't yet ready, so the embarkation staff took charge of our carry-ons while we had a buffet lunch at La Terrazza. (The day was cool and grey, and we were among the few passengers to choose a table outside.)


Buffet lunch at La Terrazza

Chocolate desserts on Silver Spirit

The meal was excellent, although the chocolate desserts looked richer than they tasted. That may have been just as well, since it helped us avoid temptation at subsequent meals.


Lisbon reflected in La Terrazza windows on Silver Spirit

The view from our outdoor table couldn't have been better. Cheryl took this photo of Lisbon's Alfalma district by aiming her camera at the reflective windows of La Terrazza.


Santa Apolonia pier from Silver Spirit

After lunch, we explored the ship and our surroundings. This is a view from the stern of Silver Spirit, showing the Santa Apolónia pier and the Doca do Jardim do Tabaco beyond.

The Porto de Lisboa has been on a pier-building binge, and when its new cruise-terminal project is finished, most cruise ships will be able to moor near the downtown Lisbon waterfront instead of using the older  Alcântara cruise terminal on the city's western outskirts.

Here, Cheryl is standing on the open deck behind the Panorama Lounge (Deck 9), with the city of Lisbon at her back.
