Silversea Cruises opened sales for new voyages aboard Silver Moon to the Eastern Mediterranean, departing from Greece on 18JUN, 2021. The cruise line unveiled a collection of nine voyages—each 10 days in length—which will sail round-trip from Piraeus (Athens) with calls at Santorini, Paros, Mykonos, Crete, and more.
“The entire team at Silversea, our colleagues at the Royal Caribbean Group, and our loyal guests have been waiting for this incredible news for over one year. We are delighted to open general sales on our new Silver Moon itineraries in the Eastern Mediterranean,” says Roberto Martinoli, President and CEO of Silversea Cruises.
“Our guests are yearning to continue their travels, exemplified by the unprecedented demand we are currently registering. We are excited to introduce them to our beautiful new flagship Silver Moon, as they travel deep into Greece, Israel, and Cyprus. On behalf of the entire Silversea team and our valued guests, we extend our deepest gratitude to Greece’s Honorable Minister Harry Theoharis, Ministry of Tourism – Hellenic Republic; port authorities; and other governing bodies for their valued support and their openness to collaboration. Greece has long constituted a key destination for our cruise line and we are thrilled to resume sailing in this magnificent part of the world.”
“We welcome the announcement of Silversea Cruises’ restart from Greece,” says Honorable Minister Harry Theoharis.
“Once again, travellers will have the opportunity to discover our beautiful destinations and create memories to last a lifetime. We fully support the recommencement of cruising, as it is a very important pillar of our tourism strategy,” concluded Theoharis.
