MONACO — For the first time in its history, Silversea is including shore excursions, roundtrip air and transfers with all voyages in its new itinerary collection, across its entire fleet of 10 ultra-luxury ships.
Setting sail between March 2022 and May 2023 Silversea’s new collection of 2022/2023 voyages represents the cruise line’s largest-ever itinerary release, with almost 12% more itineraries compared to the previous launch. The new collection includes 315 voyages across all seven continents, calling in 669 destinations in 114 countries, with 61 maiden calls.
According to Roberto Martinoli, President and CEO, Silversea has enhanced its already comprehensive all-inclusive offering for the convenience of guests.
“With the inclusion of roundtrip air and transfers, we are further enriching our all-inclusive offering, which is among the most broad-ranging in the ultra-luxury cruise sector,” he said.
As Silversea’s cruise fares will reflect the inclusion of shore excursions and roundtrip air, Martinoli also noted that travel agents will be eligible for a higher overall commission per booking.
INCLUDED SHORE EXCURSIONS
Travellers booked on these voyages will be able to reserve their included shore excursions – as well as bespoke ‘Silversea Selected’ shore excursions (available for an additional charge) – from 180 days before sailing at my.silversea.com. Venetian Society members will enjoy an additional 30 days to make their selection, reserving their chosen experiences from as early as 210 days ahead of sailing.
INCLUDED AIR & TRANSFERS
Enhancing the all-inclusive experience even further is the inclusion of roundtrip air and transfers on all voyages. Business class upgrades are also included in selected destinations and on selected voyages, such as World Cruises and Grand Voyages. Special savings in the form of ‘non-use air credit’ is offered to travellers who wish to make their own travel arrangements or to those travelling from excluded regions. Depending on Silversea’s air program flight schedule, guests may also enjoy one or two hotel nights, or the use of a dayroom, included in the cruise fare.
EVEN MORE INCLUSIONS
In addition to some of the most spacious suites at sea (90% of which offer verandas), guests travelling aboard Silversea’s ships will enjoy the following inclusions:
