Yearly stop-over in Monte Carlo attracts racing fans
Patti Pietschmann Travel Diva
What a treat for Grand Prix fans. Every May swish Silversea Cruises sails into chic Monte Carlo for the Formula One Motor race where passengers can buy an exclusive two-night shore excursion.
The tour includes a lavish Mediterranean lunch, Champagne and of course a comfy place to view the race. There are also spa treatments available for pamper-seekers and opportunities to meet with drivers such as Felipe Massa.
On May 23, 2020, Silversea’s guests will have the opportunity to enjoy this unique experience once more when Silver Spirit overnigjts in Monte Carlo.
Nothing like the Grand Prix or Monaco
“There is no occasion quite like Monaco’s Grand Prix; the atmosphere is incredible,” says Adria Bono, Silversea’s Senior Director Destination Experiences. “By hosting this one-of-a-kind experience, we are enabling our guests to enjoy this unique sporting event – which is known worldwide – from a privileged venue, to travel deeper into the destination.
Just stepping foot into Monaco is an experience. You can see and feel the wealth at first step. It’s tiny, but packed with attitude and extremely expensive shops, hotels, casinos and restaurants. Do dress up if you plan to gamble, dine or go night clubbing. If you’ve ever watched a James Bond movie where the super spy goes to Monte Carlo you saw how to dress. Maybe not a tuxe, but close and something elegant for women at night.
“The Monaco Grand Prix is a Formula One motor race held each year on the Circuit de Monaco. Run since 1929, it is widely considered to be one of the most important and prestigious automobile races in the world and, with the Indianapolis 500 and the 24 Hours of Le Mans, forms the Triple Crown of Motorsport.

If you read enough of my articles you know that Silversea Cruises holds a special place in my heart. Every cruise we’ve taken with the line has been near perfect (there are always a blip or two on any ship).
The company operates little luxury liners Silver Wind, Silver Shadow, Silver Whisper, Silver Spirit and Silver Muse. Each one is a pure delight with fine food, service and amenities. Not to mention free drinks of every kind, tips, WiFi and upscale suite amenities.
Silversea also caters to adventurers who like to well, adventure in style, on a collection of upscale expedition ships that provide all the comforts of the luxury fleet.
