Plus over 25 sailings now offer US$500 Onboard Spending Credit

Ultra-luxury Silversea Cruises has added 25 new voyages in Northern Europe and the Mediterranean offering a US$1,000 per suite (US$500 per person) Onboard Spending Credit, bringing the total to 38 sailings worldwide. And over 25 voyages now offer a US$500 per suite (US$250 per person) Onboard Spending Credit. These enticing offers are available on new bookings made by June 30, 2011.

With the US$1,000 or US$500 Onboard Spending Credit, guests might choose to indulge in a little extra pampering in the spa or use their credit toward a host of other options, including any Silver Shore excursions (none are excluded), premium selections from the Connoisseur's List of wines and spirits, specialty restaurant dining fees, and/or purchases in the Internet Café and onboard boutiques.

"We just made holidaying in Europe more affordable this summer with our new Onboard Spending Credit offers," said Steve Odell, Silversea's senior vice president Asia Pacific. "When you consider that the credit can be combined with an array of other incentives, such as Silver Savings and Air Credits, and then factor in the luxury and all-inclusiveness of Silversea, you quickly realise there is no travel option out there that offers greater value."
