Silversea to resume from Greece with full vaccination mandate

The cruises will operate on Silversea's newest ship, Silver Moon
Silversea Cruises plans to sail the Eastern Mediterranean from Greece this June with its newest ship, Silver Moon, in a fully vaccinated environment.

Silversea will require all embarking crew and passengers to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The requirement will apply to all its voyages globally, apart from those departing from Australia, for which the protocol is still under evaluation.

10-day cruises include Israel and Cyprus

Starting June 18, Silver Moon will offer 10-day Eastern Mediterranean itineraries from Greece with calls at Santorini, Paros, Mykonos and Crete, as well as Haifa (Israel) and Cyprus. The new round-trips will be unveiled and open for general sale April 15.

'In recent months, we have seen the cruise industry resume responsibly in destinations around the world and we are delighted to announce these new inaugural sailings for our flagship,' Silversea President and CEO Roberto Martinoli said. 'Vaccinations will play a critical role in ensuring the health and safety of our guests, crew and the communities we visit, which we priorities above all else.'

Silversea's voyages are backed by the expertise of Royal Caribbean Group’s Healthy Sail Panel, and its 'Cruise with Confidence’ program.
