All-in Silversea packages come with airfare, shore excursions

FT. LAUDERDALE — Silversea Cruises is now offering the choice of “the most exclusive all-inclusive fares available”, or cruise-only fares, on featured Mediterranean and Africa voyages in 2016.

Packages include:

  • Roundtrip economy air travel and transfers from over 50 gateways in the U.S. and Canada;
  • Two-night pre-cruise hotel stay (for Mediterranean sailings);
  • Three-night safari (for Africa sailings);
  • Free Silver Shore Select excursions; and
  • Free WiFi (for all 2016 sailings to all regions of the globe).

The all-inclusive air, land and sea packages are now available on a trio of Silver Cloud voyages to Africa and the Indian Ocean, plus 30 Mediterranean cruises aboard Silver Cloud, Silver Wind and Silver Spirit. They join the previously announced Silver Shadow Asia cruises, which also offer the all-inclusive package amenities on all sailings in 2016.

A business class air upgrade is also available from US$999 for transoceanic flights each way for Mediterranean voyages and from US$2,749 each way for Africa.

The Silver Cloud Africa and Indian Ocean voyages, departing Nov. 18, Dec. 6 and Dec. 21 also include a three-night, pre- or post-cruise safari.

From Mombasa, the safari includes air travel between Mombasa and Nairobi, one night at the Fairmont Norfolk hotel in Nairobi, and two nights at the Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club. From Cape Town, the safari includes one night at a deluxe hotel, two nights at a Kruger National Park lodge, and flight from Johannesburg to Cape Town. Game drives with safari guide, ground transfers and some meals are also included. The all-inclusive package fare for the 18-day sailing from Dubai to Mombasa – departing November 18 with calls in Abu Dhabi, Muscat, Mumbai, Cochin, Maldives, and Seychelles –starts at US$11,850 per person, double occupancy, and includes a post-cruise safari.

Clients can also take advantage of the flexibility of choosing their own airline and schedule with cruise-only fares on new bookings for these select voyages, and they will receive free Silver Shore Select excursions, and free WiFi. Cruise-only fares for a six-day voyage from Barcelona to Rome aboard Silver Spirit, departing April 26 to explore Sète, Sanary-sur-Mer, Monte Carlo, Livorno, and Olbia (Sardinia), start at US$2,950 per person, double occupancy.
