Silversea’s 2014 Mediterranean cruises


Silversea's selection of Mediterranean cruises enables guests to explore the stunning beaches, glamorous Riviera resorts, idyllic islands, historic harbours, ancient ruins and blue waters of this glamorous European playground.  Silversea is offering over 50 sailings of seven to 14 days from March to November 2014.  Guests can sail from port to port enjoying awe-inspiring vistas from an ocean-view suite. 


In keeping with the luxury cruise line's European heritage, the Mediterranean offers a wide range of destinations and seasonal sailings on several Silversea vessels. Silver Cloud and Silver Wind each accommodate only 296 guests and the flagship, Silver Spirit, only 540 guests. With a guest to staff ratio of almost one to one and a butler service for every guest, it can be difficult to end the journey.


Karen Christensen, General Manager and Director of Sales & Marketing Australasia, explains that the Mediterranean continues to be Silversea's most popular region.


"Our range of cruise itineraries, provide our guests with the most exclusive access to this wonderful part of the world.  Being an Italian company, Silversea is somewhat of an expert at revealing the very best of what the Mediterranean has to offer.  Guests have the opportunity to experience both the 67th Cannes Film Festival and the exhilarating Grand Prix in Monte Carlo on the same voyage, which is a real highlight," says Christensen.


"There are a vast number of itineraries to choose from, therefore whether you want to shop in the maze of colourful souks in Marrakesh, visit the Catedral de Majorca or the Ancient Pompeii, or explore Odessa, the city often called the Pearl of the Black Sea, Silversea can take you there."
