PCC appointed as PR agency for Silversea in the UK & Ireland » Cruise News

PCC (Perowne Charles Communications) is delighted to announce that it will be working with leading cruise operator Silversea as of today, 1 February 2012.

Silversea, which last week was named Best Luxury Cruise Company by Travel Weekly, is known for its ultra-luxurious, intimate ships and itineraries of exotic destinations around the globe. Launching its first ship in 1994, Silversea brought to the luxury cruise market a class of smaller, purpose-built vessels that are able to slip into more secluded and rarely seen harbours off the beaten path.

Now operating a fleet of six ships across all seven continents, Silversea offers an elite and intimate experience with fewer passengers and superior levels of personalised service with nearly one crewmember for every guest. Silversea’s award-winning all-suite accommodation offers the highest space-to-guest ratio of any fleet with ocean views and butler service. Despite the intimacy of the Silversea all-inclusive ships, facilities incorporate those usually only found on larger ships such as state-of-the-art spa and fitness suites, show lounges and a wide range of dining venues.

Silversea’s 2012 itineraries include cultural tours of Europe’s most vibrant cities, awe-inspiring journeys through the breathtaking scenery of Alaska and the Pacific Coast, archaeological excursions around South America and expeditions to the frozen planet regions of Antarctica and the Arctic. New ports for 2012 include Santander, Spain; Porto Novo, Cape Verde; Larnaca, Cyprus; Foynes and Killybegs, Ireland; Kuwait City, Kuwait; Kompong Som, Cambodia and Christiansted, St. Croix.

With a commitment to constantly updating the offering onboard Silversea Cruises, Silver Shadow underwent a refurbishment in 2011, to reveal renovations to its public areas and suites while Silver Cloud is due to undergo refurbishment to its interiors and the addition of new suites later in the year. Also new to 2012 is ‘Silver Perspectives’, Silversea’s new expansive enrichment programme, which will play host to over 200 guests lecturers across the six ships.

Silver Cloud – 296 guests
The inaugural ship for Silversea Cruises, Silver Cloud is designed to provide the most intimate of sailing experiences guests, many of whom return time and time again and view Silver Cloud as their ‘own private yacht; their home away from home’.

Silver Wind – 296 guests
Second in the Silversea fleet, Silver Wind also offers guests an intimate, elegant cruising experience in surroundings as spacious as a grand hotel. Facilities include an expanded ocean-view spa and a 60-seat observation lounge.

Silver Shadow – 382 guests
Built with proportions slightly larger in size than Silversea’s two earlier ships, Silver Shadow welcomes guests to the next generation of Silversea cruising, while maintaining all-suite luxury and the trademark intimate ambience.

Silver Whisper – 382 guests
Silver Shadow’s sister ship, Silver Whisper features amenities usually found on larger ships, including boutique shopping; a wellness spa with beauty salon, fitness centre and sauna and full-scale productions in a multi-tiered lounge.

Silver Spirit - 540 guests
The newest vessel in the Silversea fleet, Silver Spirit boasts exclusive dining options, including Stars Supper Club and Asian fusion restaurant, Sieshin, an expansive 8,300sqft spa, resort-style pool, and the largest suites by Silversea, 95% of which have private verandas.

Silver Explorer – 132 guests
Silversea’s purpose-built, 132-guest expedition ship can navigate waters in some of the world’s most remote destinations, including both of the earth’s polar regions. A fleet of Zodiac boats enable access to even the most off-the-beaten-path locations and Silversea Explorer’s expert Expedition Team provides insight and understanding to each unforgettable adventure.
