SILVERSEA REDEFINES THE ART OF EXOTIC TRAVEL WITH SIX LUXURIOUS VOYAGES TO AFRICA AND THE INDIAN OCEAN

This Fall and Winter Guests Can Sail to the Most Intriguing, Out-of-the-Way Destinations and Enjoy Savings of up to 50%

Ft. Lauderdale, FL (May 24, 2005) - Silversea Cruises is offering six luxurious “Exotic Voyages” this fall and winter that will call in some of the world’s most untamed, untrodden and unforgettable destinations in Africa and the Indian Ocean. From the colorful lemurs of Madagascar and giant tortoises of Mahé, to Jordan’s ancient rose-red city of Petra, to the fragrant spice plantations of Zanzibar, guests will experience the extreme opposite of humdrum and ordinary, as they sail from one intriguing port to the next in the pampering luxury of their intimate, six-star ship.

In addition to savings of up to 50%, these “Exotic Voyages” offer guests spacious, ocean-view accommodations, most with private veranda, award-winning gourmet cuisine, personalized service, warm Italian hospitality, and Silversea’s unmatched selection of all-inclusive shipboard amenities, including complimentary beverages, wines and spirits served throughout the ship, 24-hour room service, stocked in-suite beverage cabinet and all gratuities.

“There is no more-glorious way to explore the culture, history and natural beauty of Africa and the Indian Ocean than aboard the elite, intimate ships of Silversea,” said David Morris, Silversea’s senior vice president, North America sales. “For those sophisticated ‘been there, done that’ travelers who want to escape the ordinary, these six cruises offer an exceptional opportunity to visit some of the world’s most alluring and exotic destinations, while enjoying all the comfort and convenience of ultra-luxury cruising.”

Guests can enhance their “Exotic Voyage” with optional pre- and post-cruise land programs offered from Cape Town, Port Said (Cairo), Mombasa and Singapore. Listed below are three such programs Silversea offers from Cape Town on “Exotic Voyages” 2532 and 2601 through its partnership with Micato Safaris, voted the “World’s Best” Tour Operator and Safari Outfitter by the readers of Travel + Leisure:

** The Good Life – Relais & Châteaux: A three-night program designed for discerning travelers, it features accommodations at luxurious Relais & Châteaux boutique lodgings – one night at the Marine Hermanus, overlooking Walker Bay, plus two nights at the Grand Roche Estate, a magnificently restored 18th-century Dutch manor house in Paarl. Other highlights include world-class cuisine, exclusive tours of premier wineries, and a demonstration of the art of “sabrage” (opening a bottle with a saber). Wine tastings, most meals, transportation and transfers are also included. Available as both a pre- and post-cruise option, the program ranges from $3,075 to $3,590 per person, based on double occupancy.

** Wildlife of Londolozi: Guests on this four-night package embark on an expedition into Africa’s safari lands to witness a dazzling array of animal life – lions, elephants, rhinos, leopards and Cape buffalo. Highlights include one night at the Michelangelo Hotel, two nights at the renowned Londolozi Private Game Reserve and one night at the Cape Grace Hotel, plus escorted safaris. Most meals, inter-African airfare, transportation and transfers are also included. Available as both a pre- and post-cruise option, the program ranges from $5,615 to $6,125 per person, based on double occupancy.

** Victoria Falls & Chobe Game Reserve: This five-night program journeys to Botswana’s Chobe National Park and Zimbabwe’s magnificent Victoria Falls.
