(22 March 2011) Ultra-luxury Silversea
Cruises has extended its popular "Passport to Luxury" promotion to
all voyages in 2012, with the exception of Prince
Albert II expedition cruises.
The multi-tiered programme, available on
new bookings only, provides an Onboard Spending Credit of up to US$1,500 per
suite ($750 per person) depending on the length of the voyage (or back-to-back
voyages) as follows:
6 - 7 days: $500 per suite Onboard Spending Credit
8 - 21 days: $1,000 per suite Onboard Spending Credit
22 or more days: $1,500 per suite Onboard Spending Credit
Steve Tucker, Silversea's vice president of field
sales for North America, said: "When we introduced our 'Passport to
Luxury' promotion for voyages in 2011, the response was amazing and indicated
that travellers recognise and appreciate the exceptional value it offers. It
provides tremendous economic incentive and also gives guests the freedom to
tailor their holiday experience according to their personal preferences."
Added Tucker: "With
the new multi-tiered programme for 2012, guests can sail on consecutive voyages
and the applicable Onboard Spending Credit will be determined by the total
number of days on the booking. That means you could take two 7-day voyages back
to back and qualify for a $1,000 Onboard Spending Credit."
