While just sailing in the lap of luxury on any Silversea vessel is a trip in itself—with personal butlers, fine food, attractive suite-size accommodations, gratuities, WiFi and wine and spirits all included in the fare—being able to enjoy ballet and opera takes the experience to another level.
Silversea has announced it's offering a superb suite of theme cruises called Enriched Voyages, featuring opera performances by the world-renowned Accademia Teatro alla Scala and classic ballet recitals by soloists from such legendary companies as the State Academic Bolshoi Theater of Russia. Along with lectures and Q&A sessions, guests will have the chance to mingle with the artists at a signature cocktail party.
"We are thrilled and honored to welcome such extraordinary talent from the performing arts," said Barbara Muckermann, Silversea's chief marketing officer. "I know our guests on these exclusive voyages will be both enriched and inspired by the exceptional onboard entertainment experience."
