Silversea Cruises, the Monaco based luxury cruise line and Rocco Forte Hotels, the London based company headed by Sir Rocco Forte that operates a portfolio of luxury hotels, announced a partnership that brings the two privately owned Italian heritage hospitality companies together for the first time, giving guests an ultra-luxury experience, both by land and by sea.
Silversea’s ships are small enough to sail up narrow waterways, right into the heart of a city, to the very doorsteps of Rocco Forte Hotels. There will be regular opportunities for guests of both companies to take advantage of this special alliance with sensational benefits. Silversea are offering exclusive benefits to guests of Rocco Forte Hotels including savings on rates, VIP treats at embarkation, a private culinary event for two and a dinner invitation at the Captain or Senior Officers table. Silversea guests staying at any Rocco Forte hotel will enjoy upgrades, transfers and unpacking services at the hotel as well as VIP amenities.
Sir Rocco Forte, Chairman of Rocco Forte Hotels says, ‘Having known Manfredi Lefebvre d'Ovidio for many years it is a particular pleasure to enter into a partnership with a company with such similar roots to our own. Together, we will share the best of land and sea whilst providing our guests with the exceptional personalised service that is common to both our brands.’
‘I am extremely happy to welcome Rocco Forte Hotels as a partner of Silversea,’ comments Mr Lefebvre, the cruise company’s chairman. ‘Sir Rocco Forte and I share a personal friendship that was formed long ago. Now, it is with shared values that we cooperate to bring extraordinary service to our guests.’
