"We want our guests to enjoy the flexibility of choice and Silversea is the only ultra-luxury line offering such an array of options," said Kristian Anderson, Silversea's senior vice president and general manager for the Americas. "Whether guests book cruise-only or opt for a seamless, tailor-made all-inclusive vacation, they will experience the highest levels of comfort, convenience, and value."
Guests who choose the most exclusive all-inclusive package option, as well as those booking cruise-only on these featured voyages, may enrich their travel experience with a choice of free Silver Shore Select excursions offered in every port of call. Whether it's discovering the architectural treasures of Barcelona, strolling back through time along the marbled lanes of Ephesus, or marveling at the magnificent sand dunes of Namibia, these small-group excursions present a destination's art, history, and culture in an intimate, authentic way, utilizing comfortable transportation and expert local guides. In addition to the free Silver Shore Select excursions, guests may purchase tours from a variety of land programs offering exceptional value, including the more-immersive Silver Shore Collection tours, as well as Silver Shore Privato, which provides a private car and driver for independent exploring.
