(Including 2 Days at 2020 Monaco Grand Prix)

from A$11,996 pp twin share (excluding costs of attending Monaco Grand Prix)
Trendsetter Travel & Cruise Centre welcomes your joining us on this delightful cruise aboard the much favoured 608 passenger Silver Spirit, offering a wonderful opportunity to experience 12 beautiful ports (including 2 day stays in both Monaco and Barcelona). Silver Spirit was subject to a major refurbishment in 2018 and offers a selection of 8 different restaurants, a lead in stateroom size with a minimum internal area of 29 sqm (which includes separate bath and shower) and unlimited standard wifi. Over 95% of the staterooms have a private balcony.
The perfect size for enjoying smaller ports, you’ll love waking each morning in a new location, save for two very chilled out days at sea. The itinerary is relaxed, offering particularly long port days to maximise your pleasure ashore. Late May/early June is a perfect time to visit this region – the summer crowds will not yet have arrived but temperatures will remain pleasantly warm to take advantage of your balcony, or relaxing deck-side. All Silversea cruises include beverage in suite and throughout the ship, gratuities, butler service and open seating at restaurants.
Importantly, Silver Spirit will anchor just off-shore in Monaco for two long days including both the Saturday practice day and the Sunday of the 78th running of the Monaco Grand Prix. It is but a short tender to the wharf in Monaco and from there a walk to the race track which would otherwise be the streets of Monaco. There are countless packages to watch the Grand Prix from general entry to grand stands to corporate hospitality programmes. Rather than our chose your entry package, they can be pre-purchased from the Automobile Club of Monaco, the official seller of tickets. Based upon the May 2019 Grand Prix, tickets for the Saturday practice day start from Euro 60 pp (general entry standing) to between Euro 150 to Euro 300 pp for a grandstand. For the Sunday of the Grand Prix, prices are Euro 100 pp for general entry (standing) and between Euro 350 pp and Euro 650 pp for reserved grandstand seats. There are large television screens showing the race at most vantage points. Exact pricing by area (you can click on and see the exact location of the particular grandstand and the available seats within that grandstand) can be found on the following web page link: https://www.formula1monaco.com/ – choose Grand Prix F1 tab – use the dropdown menu and click on Billet (or Ticket if you have clicked the English language icon). You can purchase the tickets by phone or email using credit card. Even only a few months out from the 2019 Grand Prix, there is good ticket availability for most ticket categories on both the Saturday and Sunday. In addition, hospitality packages are available and one is usually offered for Silversea guests. Alternatively, if you look to avoid the car racing. Silversea offers various shore excursions if you look to escape the hustle and bustle of Monaco around the Grand Prix.
On the Sunday of the Grand Prix, the preliminary races start from 10.30 am with the main event commencing from 1.40 pm with the Drivers’ Parade and the actual race starts at 3.10 pm.
