(Monaco -- February 20, 2020) Following the success of Silversea’s Monaco Grand Prix offering in 2019, the leading ultra-luxury cruise line has increased and enhanced its selection of events for the race’s 2020 edition, for the enjoyment of guests. Three bespoke experiences will immerse motorsport fans into the inimitable atmosphere of the Principality’s legendary Formula One on May 23 and 24, 2020—available to those booked on Silversea’s Monaco Grand Prix sailings.
In addition to immersive experiences at the Belvedere and Grandstand K, Silversea’s team of destination experts has crafted a two-day experience at the beautiful Monaco Dance Academy, which headlines the cruise line’s Monaco Grand Prix offering:
• MONACO DANCE ACADEMY: Exclusive access, rich enhancements & a prime view – May 23 & 24, 2020 (2-day package)
In ultimate comfort while enjoying Silversea’s trademark level of service, the cruise line’s guests can enjoy a prime view of the Grand Prix from Monaco’s Dance Academy. This two-day experience comprises a special Q&A session with Brazilian racing legend and 11-time Formula One Grand Prix winner Felipe Massa—an experience that is reserved exclusively for Silversea’s guests. As they witness the world’s most talented drivers navigate Monte Carlo’s iconic track from this beautiful venue, travellers will enjoy the use of a wellness centre with an osteopath, reflexologist, make-up artist, hair stylist and nail bar; an F1 simulator; art exhibit; wine tasting; cocktails; buffet lunch; and live music. On the final race day, guests will join a public talk hosted by Scotsman Allan McNish—a former F1 driver, three-time winner of Le Mans 24, and motorsport commentator. The Dance Academy is one of the principality's most elegant buildings, steeped in belle-époque charm. Situated above the Sainte-Devote corner, it offers exceptional views of the race circuit. Priced at USD 4,199 per guest, Silversea’s premier Grand Prix package includes transportation between the ship and venue.
“Our destination experts are committed to unlocking unique experiences and rare moments for our guests, even at such legendary events as the Monaco Grand Prix,” says Adria Bono, Silversea's Senior Director of Destination Experiences. “Enjoying exclusive access and Silversea’s trademark level of comfort, our guests will soak up the electrifying atmosphere of the Formula One. We are continuously expanding our range of highly immersive shore programmes around the world, to provide guests with enriching and authentic experiences."
