Silversea Cruises has launched a new partnership with global chauffeur service, Blacklane, offering private executive transfers for its guests.
From early next year, Silversea passengers will now have the option of being collected from their homes in private vehicles, and transferred up to 50 miles (approximately 80 kilometres) to their local airport or directly to the ship. The same luxurious service is also available on guests’ return journeys.
Available on new full-fare bookings, the service enhancement will roll out across Silversea’s ultra-luxury fleet on voyages departing from 30 March 2022. Silversea’s new private executive transfers are available in more than 200 cities in over 50 countries around the world.

“We are delighted to offer our guests a full door-to-door journey on all voyages, further enhancing our all-inclusive offering for guests’ convenience,” remarked Roberto Martinoli, Silversea’s President & CEO.
“Travelling with Silversea enables guests to enjoy outstanding comfort and convenience as they discover the world. With the introduction of Blacklane’s chauffeur-driven transfers, we are extending our trademark level of service to begin from the moment travellers leave their homes and end when they have returned. We have, once again, exemplified our commitment to exceeding travellers’ expectations.”
Jens Wohltorf, Co-Founder and CEO of Blacklane, said: “We’re honoured to set a new standard in the ultra-luxury cruise experience. With our private chauffeur service, the first and the last miles of guests’ trips are now built into the Silversea itinerary. It’s a five-star experience door to door.”
In November 2020, Silversea introduced complimentary shore excursions, round trip air and transfers between the airport and ship as standard on all voyages – both classic and expedition voyages – in its new 2022/2023 itinerary collection.
