The Venetian Society is Silversea’s loyalty programme and offers voyage recognition, invitations to private parties and ship visitation privileges. There are also discounts on future sailings depending on how many days you have sailed with the company at the point of booking – 350 days sailing can earn a complimentary 7-day cruise.

 Social Responsibilty
