Silversea Cruises has released its 2007-2008 Voyage Atlas. The 172-page, full-colour guide
showcases nearly 200 imaginative itineraries visiting all corners of the world during the period of
July 2007 through December 2008.
"We think this new
brochure does an excellent job of communicating Silversea's easygoing luxury and the rewards
of travelling by small ship to explore the world's most desirable
destinations," said Steve Odell, Silversea's Senior Vice President Asia
In addition to an easy-to-read, voyage-by-voyage summary of cruise itineraries, the brochure features comprehensive information on
Silversea's signature amenities, special programs, deck plans and pricing. The balance of the brochure is dedicated to enrichment
programs, optional shore excursions and land programs.
A sampling of the line's complimentary shoreside experiences, available on select voyages, offers the chance to enjoy a classical concert at
ancient Ephesus, delight in an evening of fine dining and African music in the Namib desert, or take in the spectacle of the Blue Wall glacier
aboard a catamaran in Laguna San Rafael, Chile.
From July 2007 through December 2008, Silversea is also offering a rich variety of
pre and post-cruise land packages and safaris ranging in length from two to six nights and priced from
US$585 per person. Guests may choose to retreat to the Huka Lodge on New Zealand's North
Island to soak in a natural hot pool, or immerse themselves in the old-world romance of rail travel as they leisurely explore the Scottish
Highlands aboard the luxurious Royal Scotsman. Those who prefer to live life in the fast lane may decide to test drive the latest Ferraris on
the winding roads of the Tuscan wine country, while other adventure seekers may enjoy an African game drive on Kenya’s Maasai Mara.
Silversea offers land options to suit every taste with creativity and style.
In 2008, the company's four all-suite ships are set to visit nearly 340 different ports in 116 countries on a diverse schedule of over 140
itineraries ranging from six to 110 days. Silver Shadow kicks off the year with its second World Cruise, departing Fort Lauderdale in January.
Other highlights include return visits to Alaska and Hawaii, plus 27 new destinations, including first-ever visits to Taiwan, Okinawa, Guam,
the Marshall Islands, Pohnpei, the Marquesas and Northern Mariana Islands in the Pacific; The Gambia and Mozambique in Africa; and Saudi
offers guests large-ship amenities aboard four intimate vessels,
Silver Cloud, Silver Wind, Silver Shadow, and Silver Whisper, all designed to offer an atmosphere of conviviality and casual elegance.
Silversea’s fleet is also set to expand with the recent order one 36,000 GRT, 540-guest ultra-luxury vessel from Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri
with delivery scheduled for the fourth quarter, 2009. An option for a sister ship has also been signed.
