Silversea has just released two new brochures detailing the luxury cruise line’s comprehensive collection of ocean and expedition cruises sailing in 2016. Its all-suite, eight-ship fleet will visit over 800 destinations on seven continents. Both print and digital versions of the brochures can be requested by visiting Silversea.com/brochures.
“Whether your clients are looking for an exciting adventure in far-off lands, or just a chance to relax and recharge, our new brochures detail a remarkable range of inspired itineraries and enriching programmes that will help you create the perfect luxury holiday experience,” said Lisa McAuley, Commercial Director, UK and Ireland.
A new 192-page brochure details Silversea Cruise’s ocean-going journeys, while a separate 157-page booklet for Silversea Expeditions showcases the line’s expedition cruises. Both brochures feature new quick response (QR) barcodes that smartphone and tablet users may scan to unlock additional information.
