Silversea has been named ‘Best Luxury Cruise Line’ in the Cruise Passenger 2010 Readers’ Choice Awards, announced at their annual awards ceremony at the Observatory Hotel in Sydney last night (6 December 2010). The 382-guest Silver Shadow was also awarded ‘Best Luxury Cruise Ship’.
Steve Odell, senior vice president Asia Pacific for Silversea, commented: “We are delighted to receive this recognition from the discerning readers of Cruise Passenger. These awards reaffirm Silversea’s position as the world’s leading ultra-luxury cruise line and underline our dedication to providing guests with the ultimate cruising experience. Our guests enjoy butler service in all suite categories; some of the most spacious suites at sea, and an all-inclusive style of cruising which includes gourmet Relais & Châteaux dining and complimentary wines, Champagnes and spirits.”
Silver Shadow will be returning to Australia on 12 December for the festive season, and in January will embark on her first 30 day circumnavigation voyage of Australia, visiting Port Douglas, Cooktown, Broome, Port Lincoln and Geelong, as well as all state capital cities. The new flagship Silver Spirit will also visit this region in 2011, making maiden calls into Australia and New Zealand in February as part of her World Cruise from Los Angeles to Southampton.
