Silversea Cruises Launches New Tools To Connect With Corporate And Incentive Clients

(Ft. Lauderdale, FL — March 25, 2008) Ultra-luxury Silversea Cruises is excited to announce enhancements to its website,, to better serve the needs of corporate and incentive travel clients.

By clicking on the website’s “Incentive Group and Charter Program” section, visitors can now download an e-brochure in five languages or view a new flash commercial highlighting the easy-going luxury, award-winning cuisine, personalized service and intriguing destinations that set Silversea apart as a corporate meeting venue and incentive reward for top performers.

Additionally, a new online events calendar makes it easier than ever to meet in-person with one of the cruise line’s charter and incentive team members. The calendar features over 30 meeting and incentive-travel conferences and events where a Silversea team representative will be attending — spanning the globe from Abu Dhabi to Toronto.

And to create a more personal connection between Silversea and potential charter and incentive clients, a section has also been added with photographs, profiles and contact information for the company’s global charter and incentive sales team.

“Our corporate and incentive business is already setting revenue records this year,” said Sean Mahoney, Silversea’s vice president of worldwide charter and incentive sales. “By making these new online tools available, we’re taking steps to enhance our level of service and further strengthen our relationship with incentive-travel professionals and meeting planners throughout the world.”
