Silversea Unveils '2011 Voyages' Brochure
(12 April 2010) Silversea Cruises has just published its new 2011 Voyages brochure. The comprehensive 190-page booklet details nearly 200 itineraries visiting seven continents, over 80 countries, and more than 400 destinations.
The new 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, savings programmes and general information.
Linda Schultes, Silversea's vice president of worldwide marketing, said: "The fresh new look and inspired contemporary design of our 2011 brochure echo Silversea's reputation for refined elegance. Within its pages readers will discover the unique rewards of travelling by small ship to explore the world's most fascinating destinations."

Relais & Châteaux L'École des Chefs
Silversea's new interactive cooking school (on select sailings) celebrates the voyage's cultural flavour with cooking demonstrations, wine pairings, chef competitions and, when the itinerary permits, provisioning excursions to local markets.
NEW! The Grill
When the stars come out to shine, Silversea's casual Pool Grill by day is transformed into The Grill, an intimate outdoor venue where interactive Black Rock dining allows guests to prepare fresh dishes directly at their table upon a heated volcanic rock plate.
Guests can transform their suite into a personalised home away from home with a choice of nine pillow types and three aromatherapy room scents by renowned Italian perfumer Laura Tonatto.
A complimentary backpack filled with a golf cap, bottle of water, Evian water atomiser, a moist towelette packet, and, on select itineraries, a beach towel is offered to Royal, Grand and Owner's Suite guests heading ashore. The butler will prepare a scented bath with flameless votive candles, rose petals, and relaxing lavender-scented Elemis products upon request of Silver, Royal, Grand, and Owner’s Suite guests. Complimentary laundry service is now extended to Silver Suite guests as well as Royal, Grand and Owner's Suite guests.
