Silversea releases Silver Moon’s debut programme
Silversea has put new ship Silver Moon’s eastern Mediterranean programme – featuring nine departures – on sale.
The 10-day round-trip sailings, depart from Piraeus, Greece, and will call at Santorini, Paros, Mykonos, and Crete.
Sailings also include visits to Haifa in Israel and Limassol in Cyprus.
The line’s new flagship’s maiden voyage will depart Piraeus on June 18. It will call at Syros, Paros, Patmos, Rhodes, Heraklion, and Mykonos, all Greece. Prices start from £5,200.
Roberto Martinoli, the line’s president and chief executive, said there was “unprecedented demand” from passengers to register for the sailings before going on sale.
He said: “Our guests are yearning to continue their travels. We are excited to introduce them to our beautiful new flagship Silver Moon, as they travel deep into Greece, Israel, and Cyprus.
“We extend our deepest gratitude to Greece’s minister Harry Theoharis, Ministry of Tourism – Hellenic Republic; port authorities; and other governing bodies for their valued support and their openness to collaboration.
“Greece has long constituted a key destination for our cruise line and we are thrilled to resume sailing in this magnificent part of the world.”
Theoharis said: “We fully support the recommencement of cruising, as it is a very important pillar of our tourism strategy.”
In line with Royal Caribbean Group’s Healthy Sail Panel’s recommendations, all passengers and crew will be required to be vaccinated.
Silver Moon (pictured), which was delivered in October last year, has the capacity to carry 596 passengers in nearly 300 suites.
