(Miami, FL -- November 19, 2019) Leading ultra-luxury cruise line Silversea Cruises has unveiled an enticing new offer that will unlock Peru’s Machu Picchu in ultimate comfort and for less. Travelers will save $500 on four-night land experiences, which have been carefully curated by the cruise line’s destination experts to extend two Silver Moon voyages departing in 2020.
Deeply moving and mysterious, the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu is one of South America's most spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Declared one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, the mist-shrouded ancient ruins, which sprawl across a 7,000-foot-tall mountaintop of lush vegetation, offer travelers an enriching adventure into Peru's cultured history.
Machu Picchu Savings Offer
For new bookings made before November 30, 2019, guests traveling on Silver Moon's November 23 or December 8, 2020, voyages can enjoy a $500 per-person savings on the Machu Picchu Explorer land program. With the savings offer, the price for the fully inclusive land experience is $1,699 per person, based on double occupancy.
The Land Experience: Machu Picchu Explorer
This four-night land program is available as a pre- or post-cruise extension on select Silver Moon voyages. From Lima, Silversea’s guests will take a scheduled flight to the historic city of Cusco, nestled high up in the Andes. From here, they will enjoy two days of discovery in the Sacred Valley, from which they will travel by train to Machu Picchu. Highlights of the immersive experience include:
• Marvel at stunning landscapes and learn about the traditional culture of the Sacred Valley on a motor coach tour to the rustic village of Chinchero. Once a major agricultural hub of the Inca Empire, today it is renowned for its colorful woven textiles.
• On your second day in the Sacred Valley, witness massive Inca ruins surrounding the picturesque town of Ollantaytambo, where you'll enjoy lunch at a local restaurant, followed by a Peruvian Paso horse show.
• Embark on a scenic rail journey of about two hours to Machu Picchu, aboard PeruRail's Vistadome train. Relax as the train passes through the spectacular scenery of the Urubamba Valley. The trip ends at the Aguas Calientes station at the foot of Machu Picchu.
• Discover the famous Lost City of the Incas with the insights and local perspective of an expert guide, before strolling through the wonders of this ancient citadel on your own. Feel its pulse while visualizing the lives of the priests, craftsmen, and servants who lived in this incredible site.
• Unlock the colonial charm and indigenous culture of Cusco on a motor coach tour that includes a visit to Coricancha, or Temple of the Sun—a showpiece of the city's Inca and colonial history.
• Accommodation at deluxe hotels
• Economy class flights: Lima-Cusco-Lima
• Daily breakfast, plus three lunches and three dinners
• PeruRail Vistadome journey to and from Machu Picchu
