New options complement a wide range of Mediterranean sailings offering $999 Business Class air upgrades

Ha Long Bay(27 October 2010) Silversea Cruises continues to make its all-inclusive, value-priced luxury cruises even more enticing with enhancements to its Business Class air programme. For a limited time, the company is offering Business Class air upgrades from just US$999 each way on 8 new Asian itineraries in 2011.

Steve Tucker, Silversea's vice president of field sales for North America, said: "With our free economy air offer also available from many gateways on these same sailings, you can enjoy the comforts and privileges of Business Class air travel for a total of $999 each way. And to top it all off, we're offering a $500 Onboard Spending Credit on many of these voyages, which is like having extra cash that you can use toward shore excursions and other onboard purchases, such as spa treatments, dining in specialty restaurants, and more."
