If you’ve been casting a longing eye at Silversea’s new expedition vessel, Silver Discoverer, good news: the ultra-luxury line is now offering complimentary roundtrip economy-class airfare on select Asia Pacific voyages between May and December.

Available from select gateways in the United States and Canada on bookings made by March 31, 2014, the inclusion of complimentary airfare is likely to make it easier for guests to take part in Silver Discoverer’s inaugural season. The 120-guest ship – which enters service this spring in Australia – will be Silversea’s third luxury expedition vessel, following Silver Explorer and the Galapagos-based Silver Galapagos.

“Silver Discoverer will sail to the most remote corners of Asia Pacific, offering the chance to discover pristine lands where few travelers have ever set foot,” said Kristian Anderson, Silversea’s senior vice president of sales and general manager for North America. “With our air-included offer, we’re making it as convenient as possible to book passage to these far-off, dream destinations.”

Promotional Business Class Air is also offered for an additional cost on most voyages. As with every cruise line’s airfare, Silversea reserves the right to select the carrier and routing of their choice, so if you’re particular about being placed on a certain airline or alliance grouping (Star Alliance, Oneworld, Skyteam), this offer may not be for you.

On the other hand, given the exotic nature of many of Silver Discoverer’s ports of call, complimentary airfare can certainly take the sting out of what might otherwise be a costly add-on.

An excellent example of this would be Voyage 9415, a spectacular 15-day expedition through Malaysia, Indonesia and Micronesia. But have you ever tried arranging flights to Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia or Koror, Palau? Even from my homebase in Vancouver, Canada – famous for its numerous and cost-friendly flights to Asia – this journey would cost upwards of $2,500 per person. And I’m one of the lucky ones; if you’re departing from East Coast gateways, $5,000 per person wouldn’t be unreasonable.

When you think about being able to save that kind of money, that’s one heck of a promotion.
