Silversea Publishes 2012 Voyages Brochure
Offers convenient access to new video, 'The World of Silversea'
(5 May 2011) Silversea has unveiled its new full-color, 200-page 2012 Voyages brochure. The visually captivating picture-book details over 200 itineraries exploring seven continents, over 100 countries, and more than 450 destinations.
Plus, for the first time, the brochure features a Microsoft Tag 2D bar code on its back cover that enables smartphone users to view The World of Silversea, the company's exciting new video that invites travellers to step aboard and experience the award-winning luxury and pampering ambiance of Silversea.
Linda Schultes, Silversea's vice president of worldwide marketing, said: "We're delighted to be able to offer travellers an engaging interactive experience by incorporating the latest mobile tagging technology in our new brochure. Not only will you be able to read about the unique rewards of an all-inclusive, ultra-luxury cruise holiday, but by accessing our new video from your mobile phone, you'll get to see the experience come to life."
The 2012 Voyages brochure opens with an easy-to-read, voyage-by-voyage summary followed by a section revealing the hallmarks of Silversea's unique luxury lifestyle. The balance of the brochure provides detailed worldwide cruise itineraries by region, including highlights of shore excursions, descriptions of land programmes, deck plans and general information.
And new for 2012 is a pricing summary booklet inserted into the back cover pocket.
