Silversea Cruises Thanks Its Best Agents

Silversea Cruises’ General Manager Mike Bonner hosted dinner for the cruise line’s best agents in the Merrion Hotel in Dublin on Wednesday night. Speaking at the event, he said that the Irish  market was important to Silversea and that business from the island of Ireland was showing good growth – in fact, it was up 20% year-on-year. The Silversea team comprised Jonathan Knight, who looks after the Irish market, and Prita Mehta.
