Silversea enhances Monaco Grand Prix programme


Silversea has enhanced its selection of events for the Monaco Grand Prix 2020, including three bespoke experiences that will immerse motorsport fans in the principality’s legendary Formula One race on 23-24 May 2020, for guests booked on Silversea’s Monaco Grand Prix sailings.

In addition to immersive experiences at the Belvedere and Grandstand K, Silversea’s team of destination experts has crafted a two-day experience at the Monaco Dance Academy, which headlines the cruise line’s Monaco Grand Prix offering.

The cruise line’s guests can enjoy a prime view of the Grand Prix from Monaco’s Dance Academy. This two-day experience includes an exclusive Q&A session with Brazilian racing legend and 11-time Formula One Grand Prix winner Felipe Massa. Travellers can also enjoy the use of a wellness centre with an osteopath, reflexologist, make-up artist, hairstylist and nail bar. Other entertainments include an F1 simulator, an art exhibit, wine tasting, cocktails, buffet lunch and live music. On the final race day, guests will join a public talk hosted by Allan McNish, a former F1 driver, three-time winner of Le Mans 24, and motorsport commentator.

Priced at US$4,199 (approx €3,881) per guest, Silversea’s premier Grand Prix package includes transportation between the ship and venue.

“Our destination experts are committed to unlocking unique experiences and rare moments for our guests, even at such legendary events as the Monaco Grand Prix,” said Adria Bono, Silversea’s senior director of destination experiences. “Enjoying exclusive access and Silversea’s trademark level of comfort, our guests will soak up the electrifying atmosphere of Formula One. We are continuously expanding our range of highly immersive shore programmes around the world, to provide guests with enriching and authentic experiences.”

For guests who choose to participate, the Monaco Grand Prix shore experiences will take travellers into the heart of the action on an overnight call during the Silver Spirit nine-day sailing from Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy, to Barcelona, Spain, which departs on 17 May 2020.
