Silversea has just released two new brochures detailing the luxury line’s expansive array of voyages in 2014, when its seven-ship fleet will visit over 500 destinations on seven continents.
The new Voyage brochure, devoted to the elegant ocean-going journeys of Silver Cloud, Silver Wind, Silver Shadow, Silver Whisper and Silver Spirit, is complemented by a separate Adventure guide highlighting the extraordinary expedition cruises of Silver Explorer and Silver Galapagos, ships known for exploring some of the world’s most remote regions.
“Next year marks Silversea’s 20th anniversary and our new brochures have captured the sense of excitement and celebration that we’ll be sharing with guests throughout the year,” said Steve Odell, Silversea President UK, Europe and Asia Pacific. “Whether you’re looking for an exhilarating adventure to lands far off the beaten path, or just a chance to relax and rejuvenate, in 2014 you’ll find an amazing range of imaginative itineraries and enriching programmes that will help you design the perfect holiday.”
The 2014 Voyage brochure opens with a personal letter of welcome from the company’s chairman, Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio. Subsequent pages of captivating imagery and engaging content offer a snapshot of Silversea’s unique luxury lifestyle. The balance of the brochure features a “What’s New” section, followed by detailed worldwide cruise itineraries by region, including shore excursion recommendations, descriptions of land programmes, deck plans and general information. Plus, a convenient foldout voyage calendar is provided in the back of the brochure.
