Monte Carlo, 2015-7-28 — /Travel PR News/ — Ultra-luxury Silversea Cruises today announced plans to relocate its Americas office from Fort Lauderdale to Miami, Florida. The move is currently scheduled for late 2015. The company, which maintains offices in London, Frankfurt, and Sydney, with its global headquarters in Monte Carlo, will move all staff currently working in the Fort Lauderdale office to new, first generation, Class A office space in the Wells Fargo Center, a world-class office high-rise located where downtown meets the upscale Brickell area, a short distance from what is arguably the world’s busiest cruise port and within a few short miles of Miami International Airport.
Kristian Anderson, Silversea’s senior vice president and general manager for the Americas, said: “Miami is recognised in the cruise industry as being the ‘cruise capital’ of the world. So we’re pleased to have found a building in the heart of the city that reflects the best of our brand and is able to meet our current and future expansion needs. Of course, as a LEED Gold-certified sustainable office building, our new location will provide a healthy, productive and beautiful work environment for our employeesin what has become a truly vibrant, world-class city.”
Silversea Cruises launched its first ship in 1994 and currently operates a fleet of eight ships. The company recently announced plans to launch a new flagship, Silver Muse, in early 2017.
