Cruise with culture as curtain goes up on ballet and opera in Silversea’s Enriched Voyages programme

Silversea's Enriched Voyages programme for 2018-19 blends culture, cuisine and travel to create a more immersive experience.

Evocative opera shows will be performed by the world-renowned Accademia Teatro alla Scala, with classic ballet performances from soloists from such legendary companies as the State Academic Bolshoi Theater of Russia, while there are five culinary and wine theme sailings developed in partnership with The Peninsula Hotels.
