Silversea Cruises has announced a partnership with The Peninsula Hotels that will enhance the programming for Silver Muse‘s 73-day Grand Asia Pacific Voyage, departing on February 2, 2019, as part of the First Quarter Itinerary for 2019 now open to reservations. The two renowned luxury brands will also collaborate on other Asia-focused itineraries.
Silversea Cruises, which is chaired by Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, is recognized as an innovator in the ultra-luxury cruise line industry, offering guests large-ship amenities aboard its intimate, all-suite vessels: Silver Wind, Silver Shadow, Silver Whisper, Silver Spirit and Silver Muse – all designed to offer an atmosphere of conviviality and casual elegance. With the inclusion of the expedition ships Silver Explorer, Silver Galapagos, Silver Discoverer, and with Silver Cloud joining the Expedition fleet in 2018, Silversea’s itineraries encompass all seven continents and feature worldwide luxury cruises to the Mediterranean, Caribbean, both Polar Regions and 1,000 fascinating destinations in between.
The Grand Asia Pacific Voyage will sail from Sydney to Tokyo, visiting 39 enchanting destinations in 12 countries. On this extraordinary journey, Silver Muse will trace a path through lands Down Under, revealing its unique cultures and breath-taking scenery — from Sydney’s iconic Opera House to the green-draped fjords of New Zealand‘s Milford Sound. The adventure then continues to the timeless treasures and futuristic vision of Asia, with a trio of segments encompassing Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Hong Kong, China and Japan.
The Peninsula Hotels will enrich the experience for Silversea guests with insider knowledge provided on the exotic Asian destination by an on board team of local specialists and chefs. Guests will also enjoy exclusive events in select Asian cities, arranged in collaboration with The Peninsula Hotels.
Providing the perfect finishing touch will be a three-night post-cruise stay at The Peninsula Tokyo, where guests will be treated to a Japanese-themed dinner event in the hotel’s elegant Grand Ballroom.
“We are delighted and honoured to have this opportunity to partner with such a legendary brand,” said Mr Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, Silversea’s executive chairman. “The Peninsula Hotels shares our commitment to excellence and providing the highest level of personal attention, and we are certain this will be reflected in every detail of their contributions to our guests’ travel experience.”
Aboard Silver Muse guests enjoy spacious ocean-view suites, sumptuous cuisine at eight dining venues, the personalized service of a butler, and a generous selection of all-inclusive shipboard amenities, including a complimentary selection of wines, premium spirits, specialty coffees, bottled water, juices and soft drinks; in-suite bar stocked with guests’ preferences; in-suite 24-hour dining service; lecture and enrichment programs; roundtrip transportation into town (in most ports); on board gratuities (exclusive of spa treatments); and one hour of complimentary Wi-Fi per day for all guests.
“We are delighted to announce this partnership with Silversea, which marks an exceptional and personalised travel opportunity. Silversea is globally recognised as an innovative leader in ultra-luxury cruising and The Peninsula is renowned as one of the world’s finest ultra-luxury hotel brands. By coming together, the two companies will offer a seamless and exquisite journey on sea and on land for our discerning guests,” said Mr Clement Kwok, CEO of The Hong Kong and Shanghai Hotels, owner and operator of The Peninsula Hotels. “We look forward to developing personalised programmes that will provide Silversea guests with truly memorable and authentic experiences of Asia’s culture, history and traditions.”
