Guests sailing on the nearly sold-out Silver Spirit voyage of May 24, 2012 are in for a special treat. Silversea is offering an optional two-day “70th Grand Prix de Monaco” land package.
Silver Spirit guests will have the opportunity to experience the thrill of a Formula One race at the Monaco Grand Prix during the ship’s overnight visit on May 26. On Saturday, guests will enjoy witnessing the time trials (practice runs for the drivers and their cars) from Tribune K reserved seats. From this section of the grandstand, guests will see cars racing towards them at tremendous speed, slow down, and then accelerate, before making the next turn. In the evening, guests attend an invitation-only cocktail reception hosted by the ship’s captain and a former Grand Prix driver, followed by a themed dinner of Mediterranean and Monegasque cuisine served in La Terrazza. On Sunday, guests return to their same reserved seats for the exciting final race.
The tour includes escorted transfers and a gift package of spectator essentials featuring Bushnell binoculars, an official “70th Grand Prix de Monaco” program, souvenir drawstring bag, hat, seat cushion and protective earplugs.
“This is an amazing opportunity for our guests to experience the thrill and excitement of the world’s most renowned Formula One race,” said Darius Mehta, Silversea’s vice president of air and land programs.
Priced at $1,799 per guest, this special two-day, mid-voyage land adventure is only offered on Silver Spirit’s May 24 voyage (#5213), sailing from Barcelona to Rome. It requires advance booking through Silversea’s reservations department by January 24, 2012. However, since space is limited, the tour may sell out before the booking deadline.
