On Saturday, participants will witness the time trials (practice runs for the drivers and their cars) from Tribune K reserved seats. From this section of the grandstand, they will have a birds-eye view of cars racing towards them at tremendous speed, slow down, and then accelerate, before making the next turn. In the evening, they will attend an invitation-only cocktail reception hosted by the ship's captain and a former Grand Prix driver, followed by a themed dinner of Mediterranean and Monegasque cuisine served on board in La Terrazza. On Sunday, they return to their same reserved seats for the exciting final race.
The tour includes escorted transfers and a gift package of spectator essentials featuring Bushnell binoculars, an official "70th Grand Prix de Monaco" program, souvenir drawstring bag, hat, seat cushion, and protective earplugs. Priced at $1,799 per person, the exclusive 2-day, mid-voyage land adventure is only offered on Silver Spirit's May 24 voyage, sailing from Barcelona to Rome. It requires advance booking through Silversea's reservations department by Jan 24, 2012. However, act fast. Since space is limited, the tour may sell out before the booking deadline.
"This is an amazing opportunity for our guests to experience the thrill and excitement of the world's most renowned Formula One race," said Darius Mehta, Silversea's vice president of air and land programs.
