Ultra-luxury cruise line Silversea has begun listing its cruise fare options as either Door-to-Door or Port-to-Port All-inclusive.
Silversea told customers in an email promoting the change that offering two fare options enhances the choice for guests and is part of the brand’s commitment to “making every aspect of your journey the best it can possibly be”.

The primary differences between the fares is that Port-to-Port exclude return international airfares, executive private transfers, and airport to pier (and vice versa) transfers.
Deposits for Door-to-Door packages are refundable up until 150-days pre-cruise, whereas the deposit for the Port-to-Port fare is non-refundable.
“Both fare options ensure a luxury experience beyond compare and include Silversea’s COVID-19 Protection, providing you with added peace of mind,” the cruise line adds.
Silversea states that its Port-to-Port all-inclusive fare option provides a saving, on average of 25%, and “is an ideal choice for those that prefer to make their pre- and post-cruise travel arrangements – without sacrificing luxury as you will enjoy all of Silversea’s inclusive shore excursions and renowned onboard amenities and services”.
The 25% average is based on a comparison of the Door-To-Door service excluding air credit.
Silversea also notes on a comparison between the fare options that Door-to-Door prices only “will increase on March 1st, 2022.”
For a limited time, Silversea Cruises’ Door-to-Door All-Inclusive fares can be locked in with a 15% reduced deposit (normally 25%) on all worldwide voyages, through until March 2023. The offer is valid until 28 February 2022.
