Silversea Enhances Its All-Inclusive Polar Package To Bring Unprecedented Simplicity To Arctic & Antarctic Exploration
The value-rich package, with its selection of convenient and inclusive travel benefits, provides a seamless travel experience for guests, unlocking deep travel into Polar Regions with ease. Combinable with air promotions for the Arctic and Antarctica, Silversea’s enhanced All-Inclusive Polar Package includes the following:
• One-night, pre-cruise hotel stay.
• In-country flight(s) when required by the itinerary.
• Polar expedition cruise with guided shore experiences and Zodiac excursions.
• Polar parka.
• One post-cruise day-use hotel.
• Transfers and luggage handling between airport, hotel and ship.
Enchanting, storied and untamed, the Polar Regions beckon travelers with opportunities to witness endemic wildlife species, unspoiled landscapes and rarely seen cultures. The Arctic’s Clown-faced Puffins and iconic polar bears, as well as its wild coasts and remote villages, can only be matched by Antarctica’s glaciers, geothermal beaches, and ice-dappled waters, which provide a pristine paradise for orca whales, elephant seals, penguins, and so much more. Silversea’s offering in both regions is uniquely luxurious, comprising the cruise line’s characteristic all-inclusive amenities, an industry-leading expedition team, and the most luxurious ships in expedition cruising.
