A brilliant sunrise welcomed Silversea’s Silver Wind to the Sicilian port of Trapani this morning, heralding the start of another exciting day on Voyage 2334 from Rome to Malaga.

I’ve become a creature of habit as far as breakfast aboard the Silver Wind goes. Despite the fact there are four different options available for the all-important first meal of the day, I always find myself heading up to La Terrazza on Deck 7 for their buffet breakfast that runs from 7:30 a.m. until 10:00 a.m.

Perched overlooking the stern of the Silver Wind, La Terrazza has a small outdoor terrace with covered seating that complements the tables available indoors. Back in 2008, it was refitted to more closely resemble the space of the same name aboard Silversea’s flagship, the 540-guest Silver Spirit.

A small room off to the right as you enter La Terrazza houses the breakfast buffet, which has everything you could want – and perhaps even a few things you aren’t expecting. One of my favorite features is the cheese platter, which does away with cheddar in place of more exotic (and decidedly European) varieties, like Camembert and Roquefort.
