Silversea Cruises is commemorating the New Year with a new "Early Booking Incentive" and "Advance Payment Bonus" program that covers 2010 voyages. The company's current Early Booking Incentive (EBI) discount ranges from 10% to 30%, while the Advance Payment Bonus (APB) provides an additional 5% savings for guests making full payment six months prior to sailing.
"We recognize that given the current economic environment, travelers may be tempted to postpone their purchase decisions, including vacations," said David Morris, Silversea's executive vice president of worldwide sales and marketing. "Yet it is times like these when people are most in need of an uplifting diversion, so we want to encourage travelers by offering our best deals early."
Silversea will announce its 2010 schedule shortly and start accepting reservations on January 12.
For guests wishing to benefit from the new Extended Advance Payment Bonus on voyages departing during the first quarter of 2010, an introductory grace period will allow them to receive the 15% XAPB savings on top of the applicable EBI discount provided they make their full payment by March 31, 2009.
