Silversea touts best booking year ever

Posted by Anita Dunham-Potter On December - 21 - 2009

Silversea Cruises president Amerigo Perasso says the line is having its best year ever. “Despite the difficult world economy in 2008 and the first half of 2009 we are showing record bookings,” said Perasso. He noted the boom started back in June – since then the line has been substantially exceeding its targets. “Seventy percent of our revenue plan for 2010 is on the books.” Perasso says much of the success is because the line has continued to invest in the product and the personnel onboard.

Perasso made the comments during a press conference onboard the line’s new vessel Silver Spirit currently docked in Monaco. Silver Spirit brings the Silversea fleet to a total of six vessels. The 540-passenger 36,009-ton vessel offers 270 suites (95 percent have balconies), six restaurants, the brand’s largest spa at 8,500 square feet, and expanded deck space — some of it covered, with the flexibility for dining and entertainment, are among Spirit’s design advances.

Silversea is hosting press and travel agents on a preview cruise from Monaco to Barcelona. On the 23rd Spirit will embark on its inaugural cruise, from Barcelona to Lisbon. The official christening of the vessel will be on January 21, 2010 in Fort Lauderdale.

    As the owner of a bakery Ive also noticed that the current economic climate is not bad for everyone. We have been in operation for almost 4 years now and this is our highest grossing year to date. It appears that those who have access to cash are still spending money.
