CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA: CAROLINA DREAMIN’


BY JANET STEINBERG

PART THREE OF A SERIES

Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina in the morning….and especially on a morning when you are arriving into Charleston’s bustling harbor on the fourth day of a glorious Silversea cruise.  Our cruise, on Silversea’s Silver Shadow, had just sailed us 80 nautical miles along the Atlantic Coast of the South’s fabled Low Country…from Savannah, Georgia to Charleston, South Carolina.

SAVANNAH: A REAL GEORGIA PEACH


BY JANET STEINBERG 
PART TWO OF A SERIES

Spanish moss dripping from live oaks…stately mansions exuding the charm of the 1800’s…historic Revolutionary and Civil war sites.   This is Savannah, Georgia. Classic yet cool, historic yet hip, this “Hostess City of the South” magically melds the old with the new.

SILVER SHADOW: AN ATLANTIC COASTAL ADVENTURE


BY JANET STEINBERG

La vie est belle.  Life is beautiful…on the high seas.
Many years ago, an ocean liner’s slogan was “Getting there is half the fun”.  As a dyed-in-the-wool cruiseaholic, I am compelled to bring that slogan up to date for the 21st century.  My version has to be: “How you get there is more than half the fun”. My recent cruise aboard Silversea’s Silver Shadow was living proof of that.
