Silversea to resume Alaska and Iceland cruises in July
Silversea Cruises is to resume cruises in Alaska and Iceland from July.
The luxury line, which has previously announced restarts in Greece and the Galapagos Islands from June, will start Alaska sailings from Seattle on July 29.
The move follows US legislation which enables cruises to operate in Alaska without a required call in Canada, which currently prohibits cruise travel.
The Alaska itineraries will be operated by Silver Muse (pictured), with Silver Shadow starting the first of three 10-day Icelandic circumnavigation cruises from Reykjavik on July 30.
Roberto Martinoli, Silversea president and chief executive, said: “We proudly continue to lead the ultra-luxury cruise industry’s healthy return to service and commend the leadership of Alaska and Iceland for taking steps to advance the safe resumption of global travel.
“The return to service is fast gaining momentum, and we’ve seen exceptional demand for travel in Alaska and Iceland. We’re eager to welcome back our guests to unlock unforgettable experiences aboard Silver Muse and Silver Shadow while contributing to the local economies of the incredible communities we visit.”
