A Small Selection Of Suites Remains On Silversea's World Cruise 2007
Limited Space Now Available on Select Segments
(Ft. Lauderdale, FL -- October 3, 2006) Silversea's World Cruise 2007 aboard Silver Shadow is set to offer the luxury adventure of a lifetime to a very privileged and pampered group of no more than 382 upscale travelers -- and space is running out. While many suite categories are already sold out for the full voyage, limited space is now available on some segments in Veranda and Midship Veranda categories.
"The popularity of Silver Shadow's World Cruise has surpassed all our expectations," said Joseph Proto, Silversea's director of World Cruise and business development. "We're just a few months away from sailing, so there's not much time left for those adventure seekers hoping to reserve a suite for the full 126 days of this extraordinary world odyssey."
Departing January 15, 2007 from Fort Lauderdale, Silver Shadow will completely circle the globe, crossing three oceans, seven seas and six continents, visiting 60 different ports, and conclude on the originating coast, in New York City, on May 22, 2007.
Guests who do not have time for the full World Cruise can now book a segment of as little as eleven days to get a taste of the unbridled luxury, exclusive events, celebrity entertainers and enrichment speakers featured aboard the full 126-day journey.
