Why couples should choose to sail with Silversea


When it comes to crafting a romantic voyage at sea, Silversea has it down to a fine art. With a fleet of world-class ships designed to inspire calm and serenity, Silversea turns sailing into a luxurious endeavour. With Silversea, couples can traverse some of the world’s most beautiful regions while exploring hitherto undiscovered areas of indulgence with fabulous dining options, spacious yet intimate rooms and refined personal service with an almost one-on-one staff to guest ratio.

Intimate Ships

A hallmark of Silversea’s strategy to create a luxurious experience for its passengers is the smaller size of its ships. Conventional wisdom tells us that the bigger a ship is the better and more luxurious it is, but Silversea do not subscribe to these notions. Experts at creating an all-round classy affair, Silversea’s smaller ships allow access to unique destinations and off-the-beaten track ports that larger ships would not be able to visit. Plus, every port on every cruise enjoys at least one included shore excursion so that guests get the best out of every destination. Silversea’s approach to cruising creates an intimacy that permeates all areas of its ships and encourages couples to relax and feel like they’re the only ones who matter.

Door-to-door All Inclusive Journey

Even the best holidays come with stress. Though many travellers go in search of high-end holidays, it is hard to escape the stress that flanks both ends of the holiday. All this is someone else’s problem when sailing with Silversea with a door-to-door All Inclusive journey, commencing with an exclusive executive transfer service which picks you up (and drops you off) right outside your door. Everything is taken care of from air fares, shore excursions, gourmet dining, premium alcoholic beverages, live entertainment, all gratuities and butler service all included.

Refined Personal Service

With a near one-to-one staff to guest ratio, Silversea excels at creating an intimate service that is perfect for couples. In fact, Silversea is the only cruise line in the world to include butler service in every suite! From the moment of embarkation white-gloved staff exceed guests’ expectations with their undivided attention. A glass of champagne while being escorted to your room is followed by butlers offering to unpack your case, stock your customized in-suite bar and generally make sure that you feel like royalty. And with round-the-clock service catering to every whim, there is no hour of the day not to be savoured.

The Finest Accommodation

With one of the highest space-per-guest ratios of any luxury cruise liner, Silversea manage to create a real home away from home, making it the perfect space for couples to retreat to after a day of adventure. Enjoy dinner in-suite served by your butler, sleep in the finest linens with a choice of pillows, customise your suite with optional amenities from toiletries and personalised stationery to a bar with your favourite wines and spirits. For the ultimate indulgence, opt for a stay in the prestigious Owner’s Suite, home to sumptuous marble bathrooms, an expansive private verandah and a generous living room come dining area.

Gourmet Dining and Award-winning Entertainment

As the almost imperceptible yet comforting rhythm of the ship sets a soothing tone at dinner time, couples are seduced by a symphony of flavours beneath the stars with al fresco and gourmet dining options that are as vast and varied as the places you visit. Think traditional French and Italian dishes to Asian fusion dining and tapas-style courses. Exquisite tastes are paired with intuitive personalised service, all of which are covered in your All Inclusive cruise fare. Guests can also enjoy limitless beverages both in-suite and elsewhere on-board, including selected wines, premium spirits and even speciality coffees to ensure guests are spoiled for choice.
