Silversea Cruises is rolling out a new Wine
Series collection of 11 voyages this year designed for wine
On each wine cruise, travelers with a passion for
fine wines will be able to sample vintages and learn about the
tradition and art of winemaking in special tastings and lectures
conducted by wine professionals, vineyard owners, and winemakers.
Depending on the itinerary, guests may also have
the chance to explore some of the world's most celebrated wine
regions on optional guided shore excursions.
"Our wine-themed voyages offer guests the chance to
broaden their understanding and appreciation of one of life's most
cherished luxuries -- fine wine," said Steve Odell, President of
Silversea in Europe, Africa and Asia. "We've invited top experts
from some of the world's most acclaimed vineyards and wineries to
mingle and interact with our guests, guiding them through
entertaining tastings and lectures that add a unique and enriching
dimension to their travel experience."
