The race is on, literally. There are only a few suites left for a nearly sold-out Silver Spirit voyage feauturing an optional two-day “70th Grand Prix de Monaco” land package.

The May 24, 2012, voyage will give guests the opportunity to experience the thrill of a Formula One race at the Monaco Grand Prix during the Silver Spirit’s overnight visit on May 26.

On Saturday, enjoy witnessing the time trials (practice runs for the drivers and their cars) from Tribune K reserved seats. From this section of the grandstand, you will see cars racing at tremendous speed, slow down, and then accelerate, before making the next turn. In the evening, attend an invitation-only cocktail reception hosted by the ship’s captain and a former Grand Prix driver, followed by a themed dinner of Mediterranean and Monegasque cuisine served in La Terrazza. On Sunday, return to your same reserved seats for the exciting final race.

The tour includes escorted transfers and a gift package of spectator essentials featuring Bushnell binoculars, an official “70th Grand Prix de Monaco” program, souvenir drawstring bag, hat, seat cushion and protective earplugs.

“This is an amazing opportunity for our guests to experience the thrill and excitement of the world’s most renowned Formula One race,” saidDarius Mehta, Silversea’s vice president of air and land programs.

Priced at $1,799 per guest, this special two-day, mid-voyage land adventure is offered only on Silver Spirit’s May 24 voyage (#5213), sailing from Barcelona to Rome. It requires advance booking through Silversea’s reservations department by January 24, 2012. Better hurry, however. Looks like this tour may sell out before the booking deadline.
