Silversea Expands $1,000 Onboard Spending Credit Offer to 38 Voyages in 2011
Plus over 25 sailings now offer $500 Onboard Spending Credit
(24 January 2011) Ultra-luxury Silversea Cruises has added 25 new voyages in Northern Europe and the Mediterranean offering a US$1,000 per suite ($500 per person) Onboard Spending Credit, bringing the total to 38 sailings worldwide. And over 25 voyages now offer a $500 per suite ($250 per person) Onboard Spending Credit. These enticing offers are available on new bookings made by 30 June 2011.
With the $1,000 or $500 Onboard Spending Credit, guests might choose to indulge in a little extra pampering in the spa or use their credit toward a host of other options, including any Silver Shore excursions (none are excluded), premium selections from the Connoisseur's List of wines and spirits, speciality restaurant dining fees, and/or purchases in the Internet Café and onboard boutiques.
Steve Tucker, Silversea's vice president of field sales for North America, said: "We just made it more affordable to holiday in Europe this summer with our new Onboard Spending Credit offers. When you consider that the credit can be combined with an array of other incentives, such as Silver Savings and Free Air programmes, and then factor in the luxury and all-inclusiveness of Silversea, you quickly realise there is no travel option out there that offers greater value."
