Silversea Introduces New All-Inclusive Fare with “Wave Season” Promo
Luxury cruise line Silversea Cruises is expanding its all-inclusive offerings in time for the upcoming Wave Season, providing guests with increased flexibility, additional savings and a limited-time reduced deposit of just 15%. The company’s new promotional “Port-to-Port” fares provide travel advisors with additional options to tailor a more personalized program that is suited to the preferences of their clients, particularly those who wish to have their own pre- and post-cruise travel arrangements curated by their travel advisor.
Here's a snapshot of the new all-inclusive fare options:
Door-to-Door All-Inclusive Fare: Already among the most robust all-inclusive offerings available in cruising, Silversea's Door-to-Door All-Inclusive fares now feature a 15 percent refundable reduced deposit (normally 25 percent) on all worldwide voyages sailing through March 31, 2023, if booked between Dec. 6, 2021 and Feb. 28, 2022. This limited-time 15 percent reduced deposit complements an unmatched collection of all-inclusive benefits, including roundtrip economy airfare, reduced business class air or air credit; all airport/hotel/ship transfers, including new private executive transfers from home; pre- and post-cruise hotel nights or hotel day-rooms; and luggage handling, all in addition to Silversea's inclusive shore excursions and onboard amenities and services.
Port-to-Port All Inclusive Lower Fares: Appealing to travelers who prefer to make their pre- and post-cruise travel arrangements independently—including their air, hotel and transfers—these new Port-to-Port All-Inclusive lower fares are now available on selected itineraries and departure dates and offer on average about 25 percent savings compared to Door-to-Door fares. These lower fares offer a great value without sacrificing luxury as guests will enjoy included shore excursions and all of Silversea’s onboard amenities and services. The Port-to-Port fares, which are subject to availability and offered for a limited number of Vista and Veranda suites on select voyages, will be revised from time-to-time starting on Feb. 28, 2022. These fares require a non-refundable 15 percent deposit. Those who wish to benefit from these fares are encouraged to book.
"In anticipation of Wave Season, we have enhanced our all-inclusive offering with the addition of a reduced deposit and our new Port-to-Port All-Inclusive promotion, designed specifically for those guests who may prefer to design their own pre- and post-cruise travel arrangements,'' says Barbara Muckermann, chief commercial officer for Silversea. "This gives our travel advisor partners greater ability to create the perfect travel experience for their clients —whether those clients are seasoned luxury travelers or new to Silversea—and thus increase their sales during Wave Season."
Demonstrating a strong commitment to both guests and travel advisors, Silversea’s Refund and Cancellation Policy for COVID-19 applies to both rates and benefits new bookings made on sailings through April 30, 2022. Under this policy, guests booked with either fare option may cancel their booking and receive a 100 percent Future Cruise Credit or a 100 percent refund for the total cruise fare paid to Silversea if the guest is prohibited from traveling to the vessel due to a governmental travel restriction, or should the guest or a member of their travelling party test positive for COVID-19 within 30 days of embarkation. See Silversea’s Refund and Cancellation Policy for COVID-19 for details.
Travel advisors also benefit from the policy as well. When guests opt for the Future Cruise Credit and have paid in full, their travel advisor will have the opportunity to earn commission. Shore excursions are included with all expedition voyages and they will be included with select ocean voyages departing on or after March 31, 2022, as well as all voyages from June 2022 onwards. Ocean voyages include one excursion per port per day.
