Luxury line mandating pre-boardimg proof of being vaccinations

By Patti Pietschmann, Travel Diva

Luxury ship operator Silversea is among a growing number of cruise lines to require proof of a COVID19 vaccination to be allowed on board.  The new rule, which takes effect in June, adheres to  U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommendation. 

It will be mandatory on all Silversea voyages except sailings departing from Australia. 

 Silver Moon sets sail in June

On June 18, Silver Moon – the cruise line’s new flagship –  kicks-off Silversea’s return to operations. She will do 10-day itineraries to the Eastern Mediterranean from Greece. Ports of call include Santorini, Paros, Mykonos, and Crete, Haifa (Israel) and Cyprus. Bookings open April 15 at Pavlus Travel

Cruise Industry reboot

“Our guests share our excitement for our healthy return to service. As the cruise industry  resumes operations responsibly, we are proud  to announce new inaugural sailings for our flagship,” says Roberto Martinoli, president and CEO of Silversea Cruises.

“Vaccinations will play a critical role in ensuring the health and safety on board and  in communities we visit. This is our main priority. Along with other shipboard procedures, vaccinations will provide a sense of security.”

Sailing on a luxurious Silversea ship is a taste of honey. The food is divine. Service is top-notch. Suites are welcoming with personal butlers and fully-stocked mini bars.  Cushy terry robes hang in each exquisite bathrAoom. And fares are all-inclusive.
