Silversea Cruises Calls All Wine Lovers To Sea

Ultra-luxury Silversea Cruises is calling all wine lovers to cruise on one of their theme cruises as part of the 2009 Wine Series. Have you ever wanted to learn about the four stages of wine tasting, or maybe develop the ability to recognize the major properties of a wine? On each of the eleven wine-themed cruises, anyone with a love of wine, including sommeliers and buyers, who share passion for fine wines can engage in sampling great vintages as well as learn about the tradition and art of winemaking. The Wine Series highlights include special tastings and lectures conducted by wine professionals, vineyard owners, winemakers and other epicurean specialists from renowned establishments, including California’s Justin and Wente wineries, Italy’s Castello Banfi and Chile’s Santa Alicia Winery, to name a few. On many voyages, guests will also have the chance to explore some of the world’s most celebrated wine regions on guided shore excursions. If a wine collection is in your future, or if you wish to simply expand your knowledge of wines, these cruises promise to enlighten even the most experienced wine connoisseurs.

“Our Wine Series cruises are a great way for guests to broaden their understanding and appreciation for one of life’s most cherished luxuries – fine wine,” said David Morris, Silversea’s executive vice president of worldwide sales and marketing. “We’ve invited top experts from some of the world’s most acclaimed vineyards and wineries to visit and interact with our guests, guiding them through entertaining tastings and lectures that add a unique and enriching dimension to their cruise experience.”

Silversea Cruises is recognized as an innovator in the luxury segment, offering guests large-ship amenities aboard four intimate vessels, Silver Cloud, Silver Wind, Silver Shadow, and Silver Whisper, all designed to offer an atmosphere of conviviality and casual elegance. With the addition of the regal expedition ship Prince Albert II, the company’s itineraries encompass all seven continents.
