With the upcoming launch of its new 2022 and 2023 itineraries, Silversea Cruises will offer at least one complimentary shore excursion and included roundtrip air, the luxury cruise line announced on Thursday.
Silversea will include complimentary shore excursions, which will cover a range of experiences in every port of call, with all voyages in the new itinerary collection—across the line’s entire fleet of 10 ultra-luxury ships.
“We are enhancing our already comprehensive all-inclusive offering for the convenience of our guests, while leveraging on our destination leadership to take travelers deeper into over 900 of the world’s most amazing destinations on included shore excursions,” said Roberto Martinoli, president and CEO of Silversea.
Additionally, all cruise fares will now include roundtrip air and transfers.
“With the inclusion of roundtrip air and transfers, we are further enriching our all-inclusive offering, which is among the most broad-ranging in the ultra-luxury cruise sector,” Martinoli continued.
Setting sail between March 2022 and May 2023, Silversea’s new collection of voyages represents the cruise line’s largest-ever itinerary release, with almost 12% more itineraries compared to the previous launch. The new collection includes 315 voyages across all seven continents, calling in 669 destinations in 114 countries, with 61 maiden calls.
Travelers booked on these voyages will be able to reserve their included shore excursions—as well as bespoke ‘Silversea Selected’ shore excursions (available for an additional charge)—from 180 days before sailing. The cruise line’s Venetian Society members will enjoy an additional 30 days to make their selection, reserving their chosen experiences from as early as 210 days ahead of sailing.
As cruise fares “will henceforth reflect the inclusion of shore excursions and roundtrip air, our travel partners will be eligible for a higher overall commission per booking,” the company said. Travel advisor partners can attend live webinars on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1 to learn about the highlights of Silversea’s new 2022/2023 itinerary collection.
Part of an exclusive pre-sale, Silversea’s new 2022/2023 itineraries will go on sale to the cruise line’s Venetian Society members from Dec. 1. General sales will open on Dec. 10.
