Silversea announces 2018 Couture Collection
Silversea Cruises is introducing a new 2018 Couture Collection, a series of custom-designed ocean and land adventures.
The inaugural 2018 Couture Collection is a portfolio of nine pre- and post-cruise luxury land programmes of five to 11 days, offering authentic and immersive travel experiences in remote and regions.
“The Couture Collection reveals the most exotic places, cultures and people on carefully curated journeys that feature all the extraordinary touches of comfort and luxury for which Silversea is renowned.”, said Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, Silversea’s executive chairman.
It was designed with inspiration from Silversea guests; a survey of North American travellers explored guests’ “dream destinations” and most sought-after cultural experiences.
The pre- and post-cruise Couture Collection includes exclusive amenities from private helicopter service in Mongolia to vintage rail in India and Gulfstream jets in and out of Antarctica.
Prices average £27,500 per guest for each five- to eleven-day adventure, with the 11-day South Pole itinerary at £62,500 per guest.
The programmes are limited to small groups and include most meals, beverages and exclusive culinary events. Guests have inclusive luxury accommodation at boutique hotels, lodges and private tents specifically built for these experiences. Each adventure is fully escorted.
