Starting tomorrow, 1 February, our new reservations team in London (Westminster, to be precise) will officially begin handling calls for the UK, Europe and Middle East markets and can be reached by dialling 0844 770 9030.
Our new experienced multi-lingual team of reservations consultants will work closely alongside the sales, marketing and administrative teams, to help meet the increasing demand of bookings and ensure that business continues to expand in these key markets.
The new team underwent intensive training over a couple of months, which not only included the in-house reservation system and booking processes, but also included the opportunity to experience the product first-hand when they sailed on board Silver Spirit.
They are ready and eager to work with your travel consultant in planning your next Silversea holiday, so have your agent give our new London team a ring.
Reservations for the US, Canada, South America and Asia Pacific markets will continue to be handled by our offices in Fort Lauderdale and Sydney.

The accolades continue to roll in for Silversea. Our beautiful Silver Spirit has made Frommer's list of Best Cruise Ships of 2012!
In picking the Top 12 Ships of 2012, the editors looked for "true standouts: ships that offer unique services or experiences, ships that surpass the competition, and ships that point the way toward new or better ways of doing things."
Silver Spirit is "The Finest of the Fine," according to Frommer's, and we could not agree more!

Australian swimwear brand Kiargo launched its 2012 resort collection aboard Silver Shadow during the ultra-luxury ship's call in Sydney today.
Highlighting the launch was a poolside swimwear parade attended by fashion media and Silver Shadow's ever-stylish guests.
The swimwear collection is designed by Australian Jessica Holmes and reflects a nautical influence, making Silver Shadow the perfect backdrop.
Later in the day, Silver Shadow set sail for Auckland on a 15-day voyage.
