Silversea bundles excursions, Wi-Fi into Med pricing

Silversea Cruises
Ephesus touring - now included in 2015 pricing
Silversea Cruises is including shore excursions and Wi-Fi for new bookings made on or after Jan. 15 for any of the line's 52 Mediterranean voyages this year.

Already known for inclusive pricing, Silversea is making the experience 'more indulgent and relevant for today's active luxury traveler,' according to Kristian Anderson, svp and general manager for the Americas.

Travelers get a choice of included Silver Shore Select excursions offered in every port. These small group excursions focus on art, history and culture at venues like the ancient Acropolis of Athens, the marbled lanes of Ephesus and Florence, with its Renaissance treasures.

These special all-inclusive fares also include two hours of free Wi-Fi per person, per day, and unlimited free Wi-Fi for the line's larger suites (Medallion and higher categories).

The new perks join already included Silversea elements such as open-seating gourmet dining, butler service for all suites; select wines, champagnes, premium spirits, specialty coffees, bottled water, juices and soft drinks; in-suite bar stocked with guests' preferences; in-suite dining and 24-hour dining service (from a formal dinner ordered from The Restaurant menu and served in-suite, to lighter fare served in attended lounges).

On-board gratuities (exclusive of spa treatments) are included, too.

In addition to the included Silver Shore Select excursions, travelers may purchase tours from a variety of land programs including the more-immersive Silver Shore Collection tours, as well as Silver Shore Privato, which provides a private car and driver for independent exploring.
