first_img(Monaco – May 29, 2019) Held at the prestigious Princess Grace Dance Academy, Silversea’s guests enjoyed a bespoke two-day experience for the Monaco Grand Prix 2019. On May 25 and 26, attending guests witnessed the action unfold with a prime view. The exclusive event – which was offered as an optional shore experience to guests aboard Silver Shadow – included a Mediterranean lunch and a range of remarkable enrichments, and showcased the Principality of Monaco at its very best.  Silversea’s guests were able to relax in the gardens and on the terraces of the villa, while sipping champagne, listening to live music, and admiring motorsports-inspired artwork; sample local cuisine from a buffet; and witness the race from the top floor of the venue, before and after enjoying canapés and a lunch. Health and beauty treatments were also on offer for guests, including massages, nail treatments, 3D body photography, and other amenities. Taking guests closer to the action, a racing simulator enabled guests to compete virtually on the streets of Monaco. Guests also had the opportunity to meet former racing driver, Felipe Massa, who was in attendance at the venue on Sunday.   “Silversea has made this an unforgettable experience,” says an attending guest. “The whole experience has been fantastic and the view of the race has been phenomenal. We’ve visited Monaco in the past but experiencing the race with Silversea has been very special. We’ve travelled with Silversea a lot but this has far exceeded our expectations.”  “There is no occasion quite like Monaco’s Grand Prix; the atmosphere is incredible,” says Adria Bono, Silversea’s Senior Director Destination Experiences. “By hosting this one-of-a-kind experience, we are enabling our guests to enjoy this unique sporting event – which is known worldwide – from a privileged venue, to travel deeper into the destination.”  “Welcoming our guests to such an exclusive venue for one of the world’s most incredible sporting occasions exemplifies the quality of experiences on offer with Silversea,” says Peter Shanks, Silversea’s Managing Director for UK, Ireland, Middle East and Africa, who was in attendance. “This four-story villa overlooking the track is the perfect venue from which our valued guests can enjoy the race. They have dined on fine, local cuisine and socialised with likeminded travellers, while enjoying a prime view of the action.

DMK hits back at Jayalalithaa on claims over Sri Lankan island

“Katchatheevu was a national issue and not a State issue. The agreement ceding Katchatheevu was signed during the Emergency and the party had passed a resolution in the Assembly when it came to power in 2006 for the retrieval of the island, he said. India’s Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam has hit back at Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa over her claims on Katchatheevu which was ceded to Sri Lanka by India.DMK treasurer M.K. Stalin claimed Katchatheevu was ceded to Sri Lanka during a state of emergency and not when the DMK was in power. Reacting to Chief Minister Jayalalithaa’s charge at her election meeting in Aruppukottai that it was the DMK that gave up the right over Katchatheevu, Stalin, who was campaigning in Madurai, said that the party always stood for the rights of Tamil Nadu fishermen. He termed Ms. Jayalalithaa’s allegation a “blatant lie”. Criticising Ms. Jayalalithaa for not meeting the people to discuss their issues in the last five years, Stalin said that now elected members of any legislative body and officials were required to go to the people. read more
