The Timeless Treasures of the Mediterranean with Silversea Cruises

Ultra-luxurious Italian cruise line, Silversea, invites guests to experience the irresistible allure of the Mediterranean aboard its classic fleet vessels Silver Cloud, Silver Wind and Silver Spirit.  Revealing its 2016 Mediterranean 'Timeless Treasures' brochure, Silversea showcases the mesmerising beauty, ancient history and culinary delights of the Mediterranean through a bespoke range of unique and inspiring itineraries, from April to November 2016.

Karen Christensen, General Manager & Director Sales/Marketing, Australasia, says:

"With a strong Italian heritage, Silversea is an expert at showcasing the very best of the Mediterranean, through the eyes of a local.  From the world-renowned and historic streets of Athens and stunning coastline of the Italian Riviera, to the hidden white sand beaches of Sanary-sur-Mer, France and lesser-visited province of Castellon, Spain, Silversea's intimate ships enable guests to get closer and sail directly into these exquisite ports, offering convenience and an insider's view to the hidden towns of the Mediterranean. In this brochure, we've also put together a number of combination voyages, with savings of up to 15%, designed to appeal to Australian travellers who want to stay longer and explore more of this magnificent region."

"This carefully designed 2016 Mediterranean brochure includes meticulous planned voyages combined with the luxury and highest levels of service that our guests have become accustomed to.  Away from the expected and well beyond the crowds, our guests feel more like locals than tourists."

Silversea's extensive range of optional onshore excursions provide guests with the chance to truly indulge in the fascinating culture and captivating beauty of this spectacular region.
