Since your National Cruise Examiner is preparing to take a Silversea cruise soon the news of a newly designed log in area on the luxury cruise line’s web site was of special interest. Called My Silversea, the user-friendly zone (which replaces “My Voyage”) is designed to ease travel planning for both passengers and travel partners to input and reference profiles, pre-book shore excursions, arrange spa treatments, make dining reservations and access special features. It’s also valuable for people who have never sailed with Silversea to register at My Silversea to receive brochures and other communications.
The new area marks the first time that specialty restaurant dinner reservations can booked in advance (from 120 to 7 days prior to sailing), along with the optional shore excursions, beauty, spa and fitness services that previously have been available to reserve in advance through the line's website. Members of Venetian Society, Silversea's past guest loyalty club, will now also be able to keep track of their past voyage history by logging into "My Silversea." "Besides being more intuitive for the user, one of the great enhancements of 'My Silversea' is that guests sailing on our classic fleet, and their travel agents, can now make online dinner reservations for the first time," said Kristian Anderson, Silversea's senior vice president of sales and general manager for North America. "And travel agents will now find it much easier to access valuable marketing support tools and manage their clients' bookings online."
The "My Silversea" site is available for guests sailing on expedition cruises; however, the option to pre-book certain services and activities is still under development and will soon follow.
