Silversea guests enjoyed two days of action at the Monaco Grand Prix 2019 last weekend, the 25 and 26 May. Participating guests witnessed the prestigious race from a prime vantage point, the Princess Grace Dance Academy, as an optional shore excursion included in their Silver Shadow voyage through the Mediterranean.
Silversea’s guests relaxed in the gardens and on the terraces of the villa while sipping champagne, listening to live music and admiring motorsports-inspired artwork. Guests were then invited to sample a buffet of local cuisine and witness the race from the top floor of the venue before and after enjoying canapés and a lunch. Health and beauty treatments were also on offer for guests, including massages, nail treatments, 3D body photography and other amenities. A racing simulator enabled guests to compete virtually on the streets of Monaco before they had the opportunity to meet former racing driver, Felipe Massa, who was in attendance at the venue on Sunday.
“There is no occasion quite like Monaco’s Grand Prix; the atmosphere is incredible,” says Adria Bono, Silversea’s Senior Director Destination Experiences. “By hosting this one-of-a-kind experience, we are enabling our guests to enjoy this unique sporting event – which is known worldwide – from a privileged venue, to travel deeper into the destination.”
The Princess Grace Dance Academy is spread over a four-storey villa that overlooks the track.
