Ships in Castries, St. Lucia (Photo by Anita Dunham-Potter)Today I was lucky enough to experience one of Silversea’s “Silver Collection” shore excursions in St. Lucia. The Silver Collection tours are exclusive and unique and are only available to a handful of guests. For example, my “Best of St. Lucia” tour was only open to just 20 guests that allowed for a truly enjoyable experience.

Our destination was the Dasheene Restaurant at the Ladera resort that was voted the “Best Hotel in the Caribbean” by Condé Nast Traveler readers. With a birds-eye view of the famous Pitons the resort and the Dasheene Restaurant is the ultimate feast for the eyes and palate. An exotic lunch was prepared by renowned chef Orlando Satchell and consisted of canapés, green mango and heart of palm salad, white carrot soup, plantain crusted mahi-mahi, roasted roulette with allspice jus, capped off with a slice of pumpkin and coconut cream pie.

Then it was off to Soufrière to board a catamaran back to the ship. What a relaxing way to enjoy the scenery – sun shining, wind blowing it was paradise. The crew served drinks and snacks and even anchored at gorgeous Marigot Bay to allow everyone to take a quick dip in the water. This seven hour tour was only $130 – a bargain considering all that was included. St. Lucia’s famous Pitons (Photo by Anita Dunham-Potter)
