Silver Spirit

Silver Whisper, snow and more to come


Today the Silver Whisper arrived at Circular Quay, and tomorrow, Monday, she will depart carrying with her many of my fellow countrymen who have escaped Britain to cruise in luxury through the tropics to Singapore. Her next port of call is Brisbane and from there she will head up to Thursday Island, Indonesia and Singapore where many of the passengers will disembark and fly back to the icy weather that Britain is currently experiencing, along with the rest of Europe. Just for interest I’ve dropped in the pic at left which was taken by my brother on Beachy Head in Eastbourne, in the south of England, just days ago!
Silver Whisper is part of the Silversea fleet. A luxury 5 star ship she has a crew to passenger ratio of 1 to 3, just 194 cabins and an Italian heritage which means her cuisine is outstanding. All-inclusive fares and the little extras make this ship – and her sister ships popular with the discerning over-50 traveller.
The company is about to launch a sister ship to Silver Whisper. The 540 guest Silver Spirit will be launched on Thursday, January 21 in Fort Lauderdale. It is likely that Silver Spirit will visit Australia in 2011…
Ask me for a brochure if you are interested in finding out more about these beautiful ships!

Silverseas – Prince Albert and the Silver Spirit

What do travel agents do in the evening? Well many work way past closing time putting together itineraries for clients and wouldbe-clients – most are working harder at the moment than ever before – some go home – and some go to events like last night’s promotion by Silverseas for travel agents, held at Sydney’s classy Establishment.
These are events where suppliers sell to travel agents, so they can sell to you – the customer. Last night Silverseas treated us all to champagne and canapes while they informed about the Prince Albert‘s (pictured) upcoming season in the Arctic – and her successes in the Antarctic – and their new ship, Silver Spirit which will make her first voyage in December from Barcelona to Lisbon. There are no plans for the Silver Spirit to come to Australasia – she will divide her trips between the Mediterranean and the Americas. Those who love Silverseas will no doubt want to experience the new beauty while she is new.
Meanwhile the Prince Albert has become very popular with those who want to see Antarctica in style. She departs from Ushuaia in our summer months then moves to Norway and the north for the northern summer.
Currently Silverseas are offering discounts on Alaskan cruises aboard Silver Shadow.
Silverseas cruises include all meals, all drinks and gratuities and prices on theese 10 day cruises start at $4497pp twin-share. These cruises start on August 1 – departing until September. This beautiful picture of an Arctic fox is here because I think it’s a beautiful creature … what a treat to catch a glimpse of such an animal!
