Silversea Introduces New Silver Privilege Fares and Fare Guarantee Programme
(1 November 2012) Ultra-luxury Silversea Cruises is rolling out new Silver Privilege
fares on all voyages,
Silver Privilege fares are structured to make the cruise
buying decision easier by offering guests one simple low fare for their desired
suite. These new cruise-only fares will reward guests who book early with the
best possible fare and the privilege of being able to select their desired
suite when the best inventory is available. These new fares are easy to
understand, so consumers know exactly what they are paying for. In addition,
guests will still be able to customise their entire holiday with Silversea's
optional air, transfer, hotel and land programmes. With Silver Privilege fares, guests pay only for the holiday components
The line is also
introducing a new Fare Guarantee Programme for all voyages departing on or after
1 June 2013, effective for new Silver
Privilege bookings made on or after 1 November 2012.
With the new Fare Guarantee
Programme, Silversea guests are assured that when they plan ahead and book
early, not only will they enjoy the privilege of reserving their desired suite,
but they can also benefit from any future reduction in the Silver Privilege fares for their voyage.
The guarantee provides that if Silversea
reduces the Silver Privilege fares on
the voyage after a booking has been made, the guest may request an adjustment
from Silversea equal to the amount of the fare reduction in the relevant suite
category. The adjustment will be in the form of a shipboard credit, suite
upgrade, future cruise credit, fare reduction or other method.
Ellen Bettridge, Silversea's president of the Americas, said: "By offering
one simple price with our new Silver
Privilege fares, we're making it easier for consumers to cut through the
clutter that's in the marketplace and understand the actual price of the
components of their vacation. Additionally, when these new fares are enhanced by our Fare Guarantee
Programme, our guests can plan their vacations far in advance, taking advantage
of the best suite availability, and also enjoy the peace of mind in knowing
they will be protected should those fares be reduced."
