Silversea Cruises has extended its £150 bonus commission incentive to cover bookings made by April 30.

The incentive was launched on January 13 and was originally due to finish by February 28.

It has also made more sailings eligible for this commission, bringing the total up to 275 voyage options. It was previously eligible on 139 voyages.

The incentive is now available on new bookings made on any Silversea voyage departing between October 1, 2021, and June 30, 2022.

The line has also extended its Early Booking Bonus until March 31, 2021.

The Cruise with Confidence programme has been extended and is now available for bookings made by April 30, 2021, along with the reduced deposit requirement of 15% per suite.

The early booking bonus and Cruise with Confidence policies were originally due to finish by February 28.

Peter Shanks, Silversea’s UK and Ireland managing director, said: “We are so grateful for the support of our travel agent partners – and these initiatives are designed to give them every ounce of support during these tricky times.

“We are especially pleased with the traction on 2022 sailings for Silversea, early proof that both pent-up demand and the growing interest in smaller ultra-luxury ships will lead to a sustained pathway back to future growth.”

Roberto Martinoli, Silversea president and chief exective, added: “During these unprecedented times, we are proud to continue to support our travel partners with special incentives like our bonus commissions offer.

“We also hope that our valued partners benefit from the flexibility offered to our guests through the extension of our Cruise with Confidence and reduced deposit initiatives. A demonstration of our gratitude for their continued support, these initiatives are our way of recognising our Travel Partners’ ongoing contributions. We look forward to strengthening our already strong relationships in the coming years.”

The Cruise with Confidence programme means clients can cancel their cruise up to 30 days before departure without penalties when selecting a 100% Future Cruise Credit for the amount paid.
