(Miami, FL – October 23, 2019) Departing in December 2019, two Silversea voyages will be enriched by immersive new shore experiences, which guests will enjoy on a complimentary basis. In Melbourne, the cruise line’s guests will discover Australia’s enthralling operatic culture at an exclusive performance from the country’s most beloved tenor, Mark Vincent; in Castries, St. Lucia, travellers will delve deeper into local tradition at a bespoke, entertainment-filled beach party at the iconic Pigeon Island National Landmark.
"We are delighted to expand our shore-side offering on these two voyages further, by unlocking these exclusive new experiences for our guests," said Adria Bono, Silversea's Senior Director of Destination Experiences. “In Melbourne and Castries, our guests will be immersed into authentic local cultures, as they enjoy extraordinary local talent and traditions.” The featured voyages and their exclusive shore experiences are as follows:
AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND
Mark Vincent Concert: In Melbourne on December 8, one of the finest recording artists in Australia will take to the stage to perform exclusively for Silversea guests. At the city’s concert venue, guests will be welcomed with cocktails and canapés before they settle into their seats to enjoy the exceptional talents of Mark Vincent and his musical band. An internationally renowned singer, Vincent is the only classical artist in Australia's history to have released six albums by the time he was 20, and has sold more than 500,000 albums worldwide. At age 15, the singer burst onto the music scene with a remarkable rendition of Nessun Dorma on Australia's Got Talent, and has since performed alongside such stars as Whitney Houston, Katherine Jenkins, The Priests, Kate Ceberano, and Susan Boyle.
