Special perks include business class air
(Ft. Lauderdale, FL -- June 14, 2012) Ultra-luxury Silversea Cruises today announced a new collection of five "Shore Amore" all-inclusive Mediterranean sojourns aboard Silver Spirit this summer that include roundtrip business class air and transfers, pre-cruise deluxe hotel stay with breakfast, exclusive, authentic local experience (such as a gondola ride along the Grand Canal in Venice), and choice of select small-group shore excursions in every port.
The cornerstone of these sojourns is, of course, Silver Spirit herself, an award-winning intimate ship offering ocean-view suites (most feature a private veranda), gourmet cuisine, attentive butler service, and a generous selection of all-inclusive shipboard amenities, including complimentary beverages, wines and spirits served throughout the ship, 24-hour room service, stocked in-suite beverage cabinet, sophisticated enrichment and entertainment programs, and all onboard gratuities.
"Whether you're exploring ancient ruins or relaxing at a harborside cafe, it's easy to fall in love with the Mediterranean," said Ellen Bettridge, Silversea's president of the Americas. "With business class air, hotel and shore excursions included, our new 'Shore Amore' sojourns offer unsurpassed value and the opportunity to enjoy a remarkably enriching vacation experience."
