With some of its ships maxing out at 100 guests, Silversea's fleet is able to dock in smaller ports like Ajaccio on the French island of Corsica. The line has just introduced short four- to seven-day European cruises that may appeal to some first-time cruisers. On certain voyages, Silversea runs a cooking school program that incorporates basic knife skills classes, and guided tours of port markets followed by onboard demonstrations using local ingredients. silversea.com
