Silversea Cruises sets sail with John Cleese

Date Posted: 22 Jan 2007
Cruise guests on board one of Silversea Cruises' transatlantic crossings from New York to Southampton this May could be in for something of a comedy treat.

Silver Shadow, departing on May 22nd, will have a special guest on board in the form of former Monty Python and Fawlty Towers star John Cleese.

Cleese will be hosting a film festival of his own work on the Silver Shadow, with hits such as A Fish Called Wanda, Life of Brian, Fierce Creatures and the James Bond film Die Another Day all being screened.

"We're thrilled to be able to offer our guests this exceptional opportunity to laugh and learn with a true mastermind of comedy," said Cliff Perry, Silversea's Director of Entertainment.

"As Silver Shadow journeys across the Atlantic, our guests will enjoy what is sure to be a laughter-filled retrospective of Mr Cleese's finest accomplishments in film and television."

Cleese will also tell a tale or two from his life in entertainment, which has also seen him present documentaries and pen a number of books.

Silver Shadow was launched in 2000 and can carry 382 guests, who will count themselves very lucky if they are on board with this comedy great.
