Ultra-luxury Silversea Cruises is kicking off 2015 with an enticing new programme that includes shore excursions and WiFi. This programme is available for new bookings made on or after 15 January 2015 on any of the line’s 52 Mediterranean cruises this year.
Kristian Anderson, Silversea’s senior vice president and general manager for the Americas, said: “We’re delighted to enhance the value proposition for our guests with the launch of this new ultra-inclusive pricing initiative. Our company is known for pioneering the concept of all-inclusive voyaging. By including shore excursions and WiFi in the cruise fare, we’re making the Silversea vacation experience more indulgent and relevant for today’s active luxury traveller.”
Guests may enrich their travel experience with a choice of included Silver Shore Select excursions offered in every port of call. Whether it’s exploring the ancient Acropolis of Athens, strolling back through time along the marbled lanes of Ephesus, or discovering the Renaissance treasures of Florence, these small-group excursions present a destination’s art, history, and culture in an intimate, authentic way, utilising comfortable transportation and expert local guides.
These special all-inclusive fares also include two hours of complimentary WiFi per guest, per day, and unlimited complimentary WiFi for the line’s larger suites (Medallion and higher categories).
The new perks join an array of included amenities that already features: open-seating gourmet dining; butler service for all suites; select wines, champagnes, premium spirits, speciality coffees, bottled water, juices and soft drinks; in-suite bar stocked with guests’ preferences; in-suite dining and 24-hour dining service (from a formal dinner ordered from The Restaurant menu and served in-suite, to lighter fare served in attended lounges); lecture and enrichment programmes; roundtrip transportation into town (in most ports); and onboard gratuities (exclusive of spa treatments).
In addition to the included Silver Shore Select excursions, guests may purchase tours from a variety of land programmes offering exceptional value, including the more-immersive Silver Shore Collection tours, as well as Silver Shore Privato, which provides a private car and driver for independent exploring.
