Cruises designed with wine lovers in mind

Ultra-luxury cruise line Silversea has developed a new wine program designed to encourage wine lovers to join a series of themed wine voyages.
Approximately 160 different wines populate Silversea’s wine selection, which have been selected by the cruise line’s expert, Lawrence d’Almeida. It includes one of the largest and broadest choices of complimentary wines aboard any cruise line, with roughly 70 different labels.



Every major wine region in the world is represented in the complimentary range, as well as every major wine grape. Italian wines are particularly well-represented as an homage to the cruise line’s heritage.

Linked to Silversea vessels’ ports of call, local wines are added to the wine selection depending on destinations visited.

The cruise line’s range of themed wine voyages is increasing all the time.

Departing October 18, 2018 and arriving October 31, Silver Whisper will cruise between Lisbon and Fort Lauderdale for Silversea’s next wine voyage, for which the cruise line has partnered with Comitato Grandi Cru d’Italia and the American Fine Wine Competition. The cruise will introduce guests to both ‘old world’ and ‘new world’ wines, in line with the ship’s crossing of the Atlantic Ocean.

Guests will sample approximately 33 different varieties of sought-after Italian wines, which will be provided by Comitato Grandi Cru d’Italia. Subsequently, an additional American wines will be available, thanks to Silversea’s partnership with the American Fine Wine Competition.

A further four wine voyages are scheduled for 2019, including Auckland to Sydney On January 20-February 2, with Marlborough, New Zealand, and Ghost Rock in Tasmania among the destinations.

“From a rare Italian wine that is virtually unheard of, to the very finest bottles that no luxury establishment can be without, our range of wines - both complimentary and premium - is tailored to provide our guests with an insight into the world’s best wines," said Birgit Vadlau, food and beverage director of Silversea Cruises.

“Our offering of fine wines is unmatched to any other all-inclusive program at sea. Our wine voyages exemplify the exceptional range of experiences that guests can enjoy through Silversea and incorporate the finest tastes of the visited destinations.”
