Silversea Cruises has published a new Voyage Atlas describing the 140 cruises the ultra-luxury line’s four ships will offer from spring 2005 to spring 2006. The 160-page brochure also highlights more than 100 pre- and post-cruise hotel and land programs, and a broad array of shore excursions. The Atlas features images of Silversea’s new Ambassador, actress and model Isabella Rossellini, and her daughter, Elettra, which capture the line’s “Intimate Italian Cruising” concept. The images are part of Silversea’s new advertising campaign which will appear in upscale publications such as Vanity Fair and Vogue.

The Voyage Atlas arranges ports into four categories, based on their appeal to the “Art Aficionado”, “Gourmand”, “History Buff”, and “Active Adventurer”. Silversea has also introduced a collection of unique excursions arranged through an exclusive partnership with FAI Fondo per l’Ambiente Italiano (the National Trust for Italy), an organization created to save, protect and care for the artistic, architectural and natural beauty of Italy. The new FAI excursions include the newly restored Vetriano Theater in the medieval town of Lucca, the smallest historical theatre in the world; the 13th-century abbey in San Fruttuoso off the Ligurian coast, and the picturesque village of Sant’Agata sui Due Golfi.

The Voyage Atlas lists 40 of the world’s most luxurious hotels such as Monte Carlo’s Hotel de Paris, New York’s Pierre Hotel and Bangkok’s Peninsula Hotel where guests can extend their vacation for one or more nights, through the line’s optional Air and Hotel Program. The Atlas also offers a guide to 34 different Silver Sights pre- and post-cruise programs, featuring three-night stays at deluxe hotels, full breakfast, porterage and transfers. Land tours include “The Roof of the World: Exploring Tibet,” which journeys to the mysterious city of Lhasa, as well as Potala, the former Winter Palace of the Dalai Lama; the Jokhang Temple; the Barkor, Lhasa’s bustling market; and Drepung, a large monastic university. The “Wonders of China” visits the 80,000 life-size terracotta warriors of Xian, the Great Wall in Beijing, the Summer Palace and the Forbidden City’s Temple of Heaven. “In the Shadow of Kilimanjaro ” offers a luxury safari in the Amboseli National Park, and a visit to the Maasai Mara Game Reserve.

Silversea, which prides itself on its changing array of unique ports, will travel to new destinations in Libya, Iceland, Iran and Korea in 2005-2006.
