(Miami, FL -- November 01, 2017) To take the chill off the coming winter, ultra-luxury Silversea Cruises has launched a limited-time offer of Free Shore Excursions on sailings to the tropical, sun-kissed isles of the Caribbean.
On select 2018 voyages of the all-suite, butler-serviced Silver Wind and Silver Muse, guests may enrich their luxury Caribbean cruise experience with a Free Shore Excursion in every port of call. Whether it's exploring Antigua's historic English Harbor and Nelson's Dockyard, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, spotting celebrity hideaways in the Grenadines while sailing on a Catamaran, or admiring the scenic white-sand beaches of Grand Turk on horseback, these small-group excursions present a destination's history, culture and natural wonders in an intimate, authentic way, utilizing comfortable transportation and expert local guides. Below is a small sampling of the Free Shore Excursions:
--Nutmeg and Waterfall (St. George's, Grenada): The spice industry in Grenada played an important role in the island's history and development. This half-day excursion explores the spice production process during visits to the Dougaldston Estate, Gouyave Nutmeg Factory and Concord Falls, where nutmeg and cocoa trees grow along the flanks of the hills of the tropical forest.
--Turtles and Snorkeling (Bridgetown, Barbados): Swim with turtles and discover the undersea beauty along the coast of Barbados during this unforgettable snorkeling adventure. Your half-day excursion features a relaxing ride aboard a sleek, comfortable catamaran, swimming with turtles, and snorkeling over a shipwreck or coral reef teeming with tropical fish and marine life.
--Botanical Gardens and Suspension Bridge (Fort-de-France, Martinique): Experience the scenic splendor of Martinique during this memorable sightseeing tour. This half-day excursion visits the Balata Church, which offers panoramic views of the city and bay. Next, proceed to the Botanical Garden. Here, explore the island's flora and fauna via a guided walking tour and the scenic suspension bridge.
"We invite winter travelers to take advantage of this special offer to enjoy a warm-weather luxury cruise to the beautiful islands of the Caribbean, which are ready to welcome our guests with the region's signature warmth and hospitality," said Mark Conroy, Silversea's managing director for the Americas. "With these carefully selected shore excursions, our guests can immerse themselves deeper in each island's remarkable culture and heritage."
