Silversea has announced voyages aboard Silver Moon in the Eastern Mediterranean from June

Silversea returning to the Med in June for vaccinated passengers

Silversea Cruises is to resume operations in the eastern Mediterranean from June, with cruises available to guests who are fully vaccinated.

Setting sail from 18 June, Silver Moon – the cruise line’s new flagship – will depart on 10-day itineraries to the eastern Mediterranean from Greece.

The ship will call at Santorini, Paros, Mykonos and Crete, as well as Haifa (Israel) and Cyprus. Cruises will go on general sale on 15 April.

Silversea said that its vaccine policy – which also applies to all crew members – will apply to all voyages globally, with the exception of sailings departing from Australia, “for which protocol is still under evaluation”.

Silversea Cruises president and CEO Roberto Martinoli said: “Our guests share our excitement for our eagerly-anticipated healthy return to service.

“In recent months, we have seen the cruise industry resume responsibly in destinations around the world and we are delighted to announce these new inaugural sailings for our flagship.

“Vaccinations will play a critical role in ensuring the health and safety of our guests, crew and the communities we visit, which we prioritise above all else.

“Paired with our science-backed on-board procedures, which leverage on the expertise of the Royal Caribbean Group’s Healthy Sail Panel, vaccinations will enable our guests to travel deep into the world once again, with a renewed sense of appreciation for our beautiful planet.

“Backed by the Royal Caribbean Group, we have introduced a range of initiatives – including our cruise with confidence programme and our Covid-19 protections – to enable our guests to travel in superlative comfort and with unwavering confidence.”

The line’s health and safety protocol also includes enhanced sanitation procedures, increased air filtration, high-quality medical care and state-of-the-art medical equipment, and enhanced medical teams on every ship.

Silversea’s £150 bonus commission travel agent incentive currently applies to bookings made by 30 April 2021.
