Silversea Rolls Out Unprecedented 60% Savings For Voyages In 2010

Has a luxury cruise always seemed just a bit beyond what your budget will bear? Try crunching the numbers with Silversea Cruises' new, simpler pricing structure that provides the biggest savings incentive in its history—60% off—plus free airfare on virtually all voyages in 2010. The company's best-available, capacity-controlled prices are being offered for guests who book early. The new Silver Savings pricing program will introduce the most generous savings opportunities first, and the discount will be lowered significantly as the sailing date approaches—offering a compelling incentive to firm up your vacation plans well in advance of the date you wish to sail.

Here's how it works. For a limited time, and to coincide with the publication of its new Voyage Atlas (due for release shortly), Silversea is offering a 60% Silver Savings discount off the published fare for all sailings next year aboard Silver Cloud, Silver Wind, Silver Shadow, Silver Whisper, and Silver Spirit. The line's expedition ship, Prince Albert II, is also offering Silver Savings of up to 50% in 2010. Effective for new 2010 bookings made on or after July 6, the new Silver Savings incentive will be available, eliminating early-booking and advance-payment programs. Other savings options, such as Venetian Society Savings (for past guests), Onboard Savings (available during the cruise), Extended Voyage Savings (when combining two or more consecutive voyages) and the Solo Travelers fare, will continue to be offered next year.

"There has never been a better time to sail with Silversea," said Steve Tucker, Silversea's vice president of field sales for North America. "Without a doubt, this is our best offer ever and booking early is key. When you combine 60% savings—offered months ahead of sailing—with free airfare and our signature all-inclusive amenities, the result is an incomparable value proposition that travelers cannot afford to pass up."

Free Air Offer: The introduction of Silver Savings is complemented by the offer of a free roundtrip air package that includes transfers between airport and pier on the day of embarkation and disembarkation. The free air package is available from 22 gateway cities in the U.S. and Canada on most voyages in 2010 (excluding expedition cruises). It is also a capacity-controlled program and is valid only for new bookings made by Dec 31, 2009. Additionally, there are specially priced air programs available from another 50 cities.

Having compared the bottom line with what you would spend on other cruises, it makes dollars-and-sense to book a nearly all-inclusive voyage on Silversea. For a complimentary brochure, call toll-free (877) 215-9986 or visit Silversea.com. Time's a-wasting!
