Silversea Cruises Wins Top Award From Readers Of Conde Nast Traveler Magazine



Silversea Sweeps Condé Nast Awards on Both Sides of the Atlantic

(Ft. Lauderdale, FL - October 18, 2005) Silversea Cruises has again been voted the number-one "Small Ship Cruise Line" in the 18th Annual Condé Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards. The results of the recently announced 2005 readers' survey placed Silversea, with an overall score of 92.4, above all other small-ship lines. This is the ninth time Silversea has been voted number one in the prestigious readers’ poll.

Silversea has swept the Condé Nast awards on both sides of the Atlantic this year having recently been voted the top "Small Ship Cruise Line" in the Eighth Annual U.K. Condé Nast Traveller Readers' Travel Awards (October 2005).

"It is a tremendous honor to again receive this award, especially on the heels of our recent award in the United Kingdom," said Albert Peter, Silversea's chief executive officer. "To receive this prestigious endorsement in our two strongest markets--North America and the United Kingdom--is further validation that we are succeeding in our efforts to deliver an ultra-luxury vacation experience of unsurpassed quality."

Guests sailing aboard Silversea's four elite, intimate ships enjoy spacious, ocean-view accommodations (most with private veranda), inspired 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. Plus, complimentary butler service is provided in the Grand, Royal, Rossellini and Owner's Suites.

Each year Condé Nast Traveler, whose motto is “Truth in Travel”, polls its subscribers to determine the world’s very best travel companies and properties based on certain characteristics. Cruise lines are evaluated in the six categories of Activities/Facilities, Cabins, Crew/Service, Design/Layout, Food/Dining and Itineraries. The complete results of this year’s survey will appear in the magazine’s November 2005 issue, which goes on newsstands October 25th.

Silversea Cruises is recognized as an innovator in the luxury segment, offering guests large-ship amenities aboard four intimate vessels, Silver Cloud, Silver Wind, Silver Shadow, and Silver Whisper, all designed to offer an atmosphere of conviviality and casual elegance. For the eighth year, Silversea was named “Number One” small-ship line in the 2004 “Readers’ Choice” survey conducted by Condé Nast Traveler magazine. For the sixth time, Silversea was selected “World’s Best” small-ship line in the 2004 Travel + Leisure readers’ poll.
