Ft. Lauderdale, FL – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle online

Ultra-luxury Silversea Cruises has landed two renowned celebrities from the worlds of journalism and literature to guest lecture aboard two Silver Whisper voyages. ABC News veteran Ted Koppel will host the 10-day, Stockholm-to-Southampton voyage (#4025) departing August 23, 2010, and bestselling suspense novelist Mary Higgins Clark will be the featured speaker on the 16-day, Buenos Aires-to-Santiago cruise (#4102) departing January 20, 2011.

Ted Koppel is the managing editor for the Discovery Channel, the largest cable network in the United States. In this role, he anchors Koppel on Discovery, a series of programs examining major global topics and events. The Emmy Award-winning journalist spent 42 years at ABC News. From 1980 until 2005, he was the anchor and managing editor of ABC News Nightline, one of the most honored broadcasts in television history.

Mary Higgins Clark is known as America’s Queen of Suspense. The worldwide bestselling author — whose books have sold over one hundred million copies in the U.S. alone — has penned dozens of suspense thrillers, including one set on the high seas, Santa Cruise, co-authored with her daughter Carol Higgins Clark. Her latest novel, The Shadow of Your Smile, published in April, is already a New York Times bestseller.

“It’s a special honor for us to welcome Mr. Koppel and Ms. Clark on these two voyages,” said Steve Tucker, Silversea’s vice president of field sales for North America. “We know our guests will be intrigued by their stories and insights.”

On their respective Silver Whisper voyages, Koppel and Clark will host lectures and a Q&A session.

Silversea Cruises is recognized as an innovator in the luxury segment, offering guests large-ship amenities aboard its intimate, all-suite vessels: Silver Cloud, Silver Wind, Silver Shadow, Silver Whisper and Silver Spirit — all designed to offer an atmosphere of conviviality and casual elegance. With the inclusion of the regal expedition ship Prince Albert II, the company’s itineraries encompass all seven continents.
