Silversea Cruises is offering a referral programme for members of its Venetian Society members, who can enjoy up to US$1,500 in savings for every successful booking by a new-to-Silversea guest.

Guests on board with the cruise line's loyalty programme will be able to tap on the ‘Sail With Us’ incentive, which rewards US$500 per suite — both to the member and referred friend or family. Bookings made through referrals for full World Cruises or Grand Voyages will clock in greater savings of US$1,500 and US$1,000 per suite respectively.

"We know that our valued Venetian Society members are our greatest ambassadors and that the majority of our most loyal guests regularly refer their friends and family to Silversea,” said Barbara Muckermann, Silversea's chief marketing officer.

The referral programme is valid from now until 31 March 2021, and can be combined with other Silversea promotions. This includes the Early Booking Bonus, which for a limited time is featuring savings of up to 20%, and special single fares for solo travelers. Additionally, Venetian Society members enjoy 5% savings on select voyages.

Passengers can redeem their referral savings via their travel advisor or directly through their personal profile on, for a sailing date that is the same as that of their friend or family member, or later.

Just last month, the luxury expedition cruiser also pushed out a bonus commission of US$200 for all new bookings made on voyages departing on or after 1 July through 31 December 2021, in a show of support to its global community of travel agents and partners.
