Silversea Announces £350 Air Offer for Silver Discoverer Expedition Cruises

Luxury expedition cruise operator Silversea is introducing a £350 roundtrip economy air add-on from a selection of UK gateways. The special air offer is available on six Silver Discoverer voyages sailing in October, November and December 2016 to Asia and the Indian Ocean.

The £350 air add-on offer is valid on new cruise bookings for the featured sailings made on or after 21st April 2016. It is a capacity-controlled programme, with airline and routing at the discretion of Silversea and the programme may be modified or discontinued at any time without notice.

“These new £350 air add-ons offer extraordinary value for travellers looking to book passage to dream destinations located in some of the most remote corners of Asia Pacific,” said Lisa McAuley, Silversea’s Commercial Director, UK and Ireland.

Onboard the small-sized, all-suite Silver Discoverer, guests will be able to explore some of the world’s most remote and remarkable regions, while enjoying an enriching onboard programme of destination lectures, photographic presentations, and daily briefings.

Zodiac excursions and interactive walks ashore will be led by experts in their field, including marine biologists, ornithologists, geologists, botanists, historians, and anthropologists. Guests are able to enjoy the personalised service and all-inclusive amenities that are the signature of every Silversea voyage, with gourmet dining; select wines, premium spirits and soft beverages; butler service for all suites; a comprehensive free wi-fi package, and many other included amenities.
