(7:30 a.m. EDT) -- Silversea Cruises has launched a fare guarantee programme and a new fare structure for 2013 and 2014 sailings.
The fare guarantee programme means that if the fare drops after a booking has been made the line will refund the difference in the form of a shipboard credit, suite upgrade, future cruise credit or fare reduction.
The guarantee is only available on the new, cruise-only Silver Privilege fares. Silver Privilege fares allow passengers to book early for the best price and choose their suite. Though the fares are cruise-only, guests are still able to bolt-on air, transfer, hotel and land components.
