Silversea Extends 'Passport to Luxury' Promotion to All Voyages in 2012


Onboard Spending Credits range from $500 to $1,500 per suite


(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:

Voyage of 6 - 7 days: $500 per suite Onboard Spending Credit
Voyage of 8 - 21 days: $1,000 per suite Onboard Spending Credit
Voyage of 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."

For example, a couple could book Silver Spirit's 7-day Voyage 5213, sailing 24-31 May, Barcelona to Rome, with calls in Sete, Monte Carlo (overnight visit for Grand Prix), Ajaccio, Portofino and Livorno, and enjoy a $500 per suite Onboard Spending Credit.

Or increase the Onboard Spending Credit to $1,000 per suite by combining Voyage 5213 with 7-day Voyage 5214 (31 May - 7 June), sailing Rome to Venice, with calls in Sorrento, Taormina, Kotor, and Dubrovnik.

Or go all the way up to a $1,500 per suite Onboard Spending Credit by combining Voyage 5213 and 5214 with 11-day Voyage 5215 (7-18 June), sailing Venice to Istanbul, with calls in Hvar, Dubrovnik, Corfu, Santorini, Rhodes, Kusadasi, and Mytilene.

The "Passport to Luxury" Onboard Spending Credit lets Silversea guests craft their own luxury experience. You can treat yourself to a soothing aroma stone massage at the onboard spa. Hire a private car and driver in St Tropez to explore the glamourous Riviera. Or savour an exquisite six-course dinner in Le Champagne -- the only Relais & Châteaux wine restaurant at sea.

Onboard Spending Credit options include:

  • Spa treatments
  • Speciality restaurants
  • Premium spirits and rare vintages from the Connoisseur's List
  • Silver Shore excursions (none are excluded)
  • Boutique purchases
  • Internet packages
  • Laundry service
  • Personal fitness training
  • Direct-dial phone calls

Aboard Silversea's award-winning, all-suite ships, guests enjoy spacious, ocean-view accommodation, sumptuous gourmet cuisine, the personalised service of a butler assigned to every suite, and a generous selection of all-inclusive shipboard amenities, including complimentary beverages, wines and spirits served throughout the ship, 24-hour room service, stocked in-suite beverage cabinet and all gratuities. 

The Onboard Spending Credit may be combined with Silver Savings fares (offering up to 60% savings on select voyages) and included roundtrip air and transfers, if applicable. It is a capacity-controlled programme and subject to availability.  Maximum value of Onboard Spending Credit is determined by number of days on the booking. The Onboard Spending Credit is offered per double-occupancy suite. Single occupancy suites will receive 50% of the Onboard Spending Credit. It is valued in US dollars, regardless of booking currency. It may not be redeemed for cash, and any unused portion will be forfeited. Additional restrictions may apply.
