is set to offer voyagers an exciting new overland shore excursion.
Always pushing the boundaries of what it means to cruise, the offer - available on eight itineraries - launches participants on a 700-mph flight aboard the MiG-31 Foxhound.
The Foxhound - billed as Russia's "most advanced high-altitude interceptor aircraft" - will first take travellers to Moscow, where iconic landmarks Red Square and the Kremlin can be absorbed by invigorated travellers.
From Moscow, adventurers proceed to authentic town Nizhny Novgorod, where after a refreshing night's rest they will embark on the excursion's highlight - flight training at the Sormovo airfield.
Once the excitement has subsided, rejuvenated travellers can take home a special commemorative flying suit.
Describing the journey as "designed for the ultimate thrill-seeker", Silversea Cruises'
Director of Land Programmes Jim Droney comments: "It definitely falls in the category of extreme adventures - the kind that well-heeled, 'been there, done that' world travellers like to collect and brag about."Silversea Cruises
