Silversea is believed to be the first cruise line to offer private executive transfers as standard (included in the fare), thanks to an exclusive collaboration with global chauffeur service Blacklane.

Travelers have the option of being collected from their homes in a private chauffeured vehicle and transferred up to 50 miles/80 kilometers to their local airport or directly to the ship. The same luxurious service is also available on return journeys.

Available with new full-fare bookings, the service enhancement will roll out across Silversea’s fleet on voyages departing from March 30, 2022. The transfers are available in more than 200 cities in over 50 countries.

Transfers that exceed 52 miles are available at an extra cost. (The two miles allowed above the 50 give ‘a little extra cushion,’ a spokesperson explained.)


‘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,’ Silversea President and CEO Roberto Martinoli said. ‘ … With the introduction of Blacklane’s chauffeur-driven transfers, we are extending our trademark level of service to begin from the moment travelers leave their homes and end when they have returned.’

‘With our private chauffeur service, the first and the last miles of guests’ trips are now built into the Silversea itinerary,’ added Jens Wohltorf, co-founder and CEO of Blacklane. “It’s a five-star experience door to door.’
