Stocks in this article: TRIP

PENNINGTON, N.J., May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cruise Critic® ( http://www.cruisecritic.com), the leading cruise review site, and the world's largest community of cruisers, has expanded its list of Meet & Mingle program partners to include Silversea Cruises. Cruise Critic's popular Meet & Mingle parties provide members with the opportunity to meet fellow cruisers they have connected with on the site's cruise forums.

Meet & Mingle parties are now available on all Silversea sailings, and include a member-exclusive cocktail party, with hors d'oeuvres and a private bar, at no additional cost to attendees. Silversea Meet & Mingle parties are offered to any group of six or more guests who have registered for the event through the Cruise Critic Web site.

"We're thrilled to partner with Silversea to offer Meet & Mingle parties to our members onboard," says Kathleen Tucker, Cruise Critic's President and Founder. "Our members will often chat online for more than a year before they set sail, so an organized meet up is a fantastic way to start their cruise."

Adds Ellen Bettridge, Silversea's President of the Americas, "Meet & Mingle parties are a great opportunity for Cruise Critic members to connect with each other at sea. We're delighted to participate in this program and enhance the cruise experience for our guests who are members of the Cruise Critic community."

This is the fifth cruise line to offer an official Meet & Mingle program to Cruise Critic members. Cruise Critic has similar agreements in place with Azamara, Celebrity, Crystal and Royal Caribbean cruise lines.
