Silversea Announces New Shorter Voyages

MediterraneanCruiseWeb(17 January 2013) In its continuing mission to provide guests with more choices, ultra-luxury Silversea Cruises has just announced a new collection of eight shorter cruises for 2013. These convenient four- to seven-day voyages to Northern Europe and the Mediterranean are designed for time-strapped working professionals, travellers who like to combine a cruise with a land program, and individuals who may be new to luxury cruising and would like a taste of Silversea's award-winning, all-inclusive experience.

Ellen Bettridge, Silversea's president of the Americas, said: "Many travellers today have busy schedules that make it difficult to fit in time for an extended luxury cruise holiday.
