In its efforts to provide its guests with more choices, Silversea Cruises has announced a new collection of eight shorter cruises for 2013. The company says that the four- to seven-day voyages to Northern Europe and the Mediterranean are designed for time-strapped working professionals, travellers who like to combine a cruise with a land program, and individuals who may be new to luxury cruising and would like a taste of Silversea’s award-winning, all-inclusive experience.
Ellen Bettridge, Silversea’s president of the Americas, said: “Many travellers today have busy schedules that make it difficult to fit in time for an extended luxury cruise holiday. It’s important for us to offer options that cater to these consumers as well as those who have time for longer voyages.”
