Silversea Partners with Luxury Hotel Chain
Silversea Cruises, the ultimate splurge cruise line, and Relais & Chateaux, the ultra-luxe network of elegant, country house hotels and topnotch restaurants, have teamed up.

The obvious benefit for cruise passengers -- or should we say cruise connoisseurs -- is lodging and dining at Relais & Chateaux on pre- and post-voyage land tours. Relais and Chateaux’s portfolio, so to speak, includes 452 independently owned hotels and restaurants in 47 countries around the world, including the U.S., Europe, South America, the Caribbean, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. In style, they range wildly, from America’s infamous Inn at Little Washington, in Washington, Virginia, to numerous chateau-com-inns in the French countryside, villas in Italy, and castles in Ireland.

Relais & Chateaux’s restaurants, which fall under the heading of Relais Gourmands, are equally stupendous; many -- though not all -- are located in its lodging properties. Some notable exceptions, for instance, include Les Ambassadeurs, in Paris and L’Orangerie, in Los Angeles.

But there’s more to the “deal” than land-stays. Onboard, the partnership will add some sparkle to the line’s food service. Notable culinary stars from Relais Chateaux -- Relais Gourmands will travel on selected voyages and, in conjunction with Silversea’s own chefs, offer cooking demonstrations, host shopping tours in local markets around the world and create La Collection du Monde, a sampling of specialty dishes to be featured regularly on all Silversea cruises.

The Silversea-Relais & Chateaux partnership will launch in 2001.
