Silver Wind - second last but better this year

For its final call this year Silver Wind could hardly have asked for better conditions. Perhaps a soupcon of drizzle early in the day, but that cool clear air in the afternoon was ideal autumn weather.

The last of 295 passengers straggle back on board before the ship sails from Halifax for the last time this year.

Last year Silver Wind shared last ship honours with Insignia on November 6, 2018 and it was a less than ideal day:

Today's departure for Bar Harbor could only be described as idyllic, if a little chilly. I could only detect two or three passengers on deck despite the calm clear conditions.

The low afternoon (now standard time) sun made the ship glow as it sailed.

November 6 will be last day for the cruise season again this year, but the last ship is to be the 
Riviera with 1250 passengers.
