Silversea has unveiled its new full-color, 200-page 2012 Voyages brochure, detailing over 200 itineraries exploring seven continents, over 100 countries, and more than 450 destinations.
Plus, for the first time, the brochure features a Microsoft Tag 2D bar code on its back cover that enables smartphone users to view The World of Silversea, the company's new video that invites travelers to step aboard and experience the luxury and pampering ambiance of Silversea.
"We're delighted to be able to offer travelers an engaging interactive experience by incorporating the latest mobile tagging technology in our new brochure," said Linda Schultes, Silversea's vice president of worldwide marketing. "Not only will you be able to read about the unique rewards of an all-inclusive, ultra-luxury cruise vacation, but by accessing our new video from your mobile phone, you'll get to see the experience come to life."
The 2012 Voyages brochure opens with a voyage-by-voyage summary followed by a section revealing the hallmarks of Silversea's luxury lifestyle. The balance of the brochure provides detailed worldwide cruise itineraries by region, including highlights of shore excursions, descriptions of land programs, deck plans and general information.
And new for 2012 is a pricing summary booklet inserted into the back cover pocket.

The company's Passport to Luxury promotion is available on all voyages in 2012, with the exception of Silver Explorer expedition cruises. The multi-tiered program provides an Onboard Spending Credit of up to $1,500 per suite ($750 per person).

West Africa Expeditions
Silversea has created three new West Africa expedition itineraries for 2012 that visit the once colonized northwest countries, travel along coastlines infamous for their historic role in the slave trade, and explore the southern waters where vast seabird colonies are sustained by the nutrient-rich upwelling of the icy Benguela current.
