Ep 11 – Luxury at Sea – Travel Deeper with Silversea Cruises


In this episode, Rodney is joined by a special guest, Joe Leon, from Silverseas Cruises. Together, they dive into the world of luxury cruising, sharing insider tips and stories that will inspire your next vacation. Joe shares Silverseas’ commitment to taking customers deeper into destinations than they would travel with anyone else. This promise is evident in every aspect, from the design of their ships to the innovative programs on board, like the culinary program Sea and Land Tastes (SALT). With their new ships, Silver Ray and Silver Nova, dubbed “ships of light” by the U.S. media, guests can enjoy stunning views, with 93 percent of public areas offering vistas of the outside destinations.

Silverseas operates the world’s largest luxury fleet, featuring both Expedition and Classic ships, and boasts hundreds of destinations—more than any cruise line in any market. Joe’s message to listeners is clear: Silverseas can take you anywhere in the world you want to go, providing a higher value proposition than you might expect. Many people pay for luxury experiences but have yet to experience the true luxury that Silverseas offers.
