Silversea Modifies Black Sea Voyages

Ship6443 Choice of Complimentary Full-Day Silversea Experience in Bucharest or $200 Onboard Credit Offered on Three New Sailings

(15 May 2014) Taking into account the unsettled situation in Ukraine, Silversea Cruises has modified the itineraries for four Black Sea voyages originally scheduled to call in Yalta, Sevastopol, or Odessa this year.

Silver Spirit's 21 July seven-day sailing will remain entirely a Black Sea itinerary with Trabzon replacing Odessa, while three new nine-day voyages will focus on destinations in Greece and Turkey, and also retain the original Black Sea ports of Constanza and Nessebur.

ADDED PERK: SILVERSEA EXPERIENCE IN BUCHAREST
The new nine-day voyages, Silver Cloud's 13 October sailing and Silver Spirit's voyages of 20 August and 29 September, have been enhanced with an added perk. Departing from Constanza, guests may enjoy a complimentary full-day Silversea Experience in Bucharest, renowned as the "Paris of the East" for its tree-lined avenues, elegant architecture, and vibrant atmosphere. Highlights include a scenic drive through Romania's countryside, a delicious Romanian-style lunch, and an enriching exploration of the capital city's Palace of Parliament, Patriarchal Hill, open-air Village Museum, and Revolution Square. Alternatively, guests may opt for a USD$200 per guest onboard credit.

Following are details of the modified itineraries:
