Silversea Cruises has entered into an exclusive collaboration with global chauffeur service Blacklane to enhance its all-inclusive offerings. The partnership will now offer Silversea guests a “full door-to-door journey on all voyages.”
Guests will have the option of being collected from their homes in a private chauffeured vehicle and transferred up to 50 miles to their local airport or directly to the ship. The same service is also available on guests’ return journeys. Available on new full-fare bookings, the service enhancement will roll out across Silversea’s ultra-luxury fleet on voyages departing from March 30, 2022. The new private executive transfers are available in over 200 cities in more than 50 countries around the world.
“With the introduction of Blacklane’s chauffeur-driven transfers, we are extending our trademark level of service to begin from the moment travelers leave their homes and end when they have returned,” said Roberto Martinoli, Silversea’s president and CEO, in a written statement.
With the inclusion of a private chauffeur service to and from guests’ homes, Silversea is building on its comprehensive, broad-ranging all-inclusive offering. In November 2020, the ultra-luxury cruise line introduced complimentary shore excursions, roundtrip air, and transfers between the airport and ship as standard on all voyages—both classic and expedition voyages—in its new 2022-23 itinerary collection.
The door-to-door service is available on all public full-fare bookings, including special combination fares, Grand Voyages, and full World Cruises. Transfers that exceed 52 miles are available at an additional cost.
