    Hot Off The Luxury Press

    Silversea have launched a new mini cruise for those people that may have tried other luxury brands but not their's or maybe for people that want to try luxury for the first time without the big bucks commitment.

    It's departing fairly soon (26th April 13) but it's over a weekend so if your like me and working you would only need two days off work on the Friday and Monday.

    The itinerary is Monte Carlo > St.Tropez > Portofino > Monte Carlo

    Don't let Wayne Rooney's wedding in Portofino put you off:



    Portofino is genuinely beautiful with a small rustic square and a crystal clear harbor, vividly sticks in my mind from a visit there a few years back.

    Now getting to the nitty gritty - the cost is £525pp cruise only, which includes everything on board in regards to drinks, suite accommodation, tips, butler service..................basically you wont have to dip in your pocket whilst on-board.

    I'm going to drop a link in here for those that like a prettier version of what I'm trying to explain in text:

    http://www.cruise.co.uk/cruise-guide...-of-Silversea/

    I've had a look at the logistics and the best place to fly into other than Monaco (I'm finding Monaco flights difficult, let me know how you get on?) would be Nice - flights depending on carrier range from £100 - £150pp.

    It's quite a long transfer so you would be looking at £100pp return

    Your looking at around £800pp all in not bad when you consider the cost of staying in similar all inclusive accomodation in Monte Carlo, St.Tropez or Portofino.

    I've got too many birthday commitments over this period but if anyone ends up booking let me know how you get on

    Surely there's only one way to transfer from Nice to Monaco and it only takes 7 minutes! They even include transport to your final destination within the principality!

    Also €30 reduction if your over 65!

            I've seen this cruise offered at £999 with 2 nights pre cruise is a 4* Monte Carlo Hotel, private transfers and return regional UK flights.

            Looks like a bargain if you fancy trying out Silversea's
