Ronny Duluc familia MSC Cruise SILGON“We had a wonderful time, thank you SILGON!” Was the phrase we heard over and over again when we asked our group of more than 60 Casa de Campo villa owners and SILGON clients how they enjoyed their luxury Caribbean aboard the MSC Música. 

Casa de Campo MSC Cruise SILGONYou see back in December of last year, we, SILGON, a modern media company based in Casa de Campo, who are now entering on our 1st successful decade in publishing, decided to start the celebrations by inviting our clients, as well Casa de Campo villa owners on a 7-night luxury Caribbean cruise aboard the MSC Música.

“While we have an entire year of celebrations to look forward to, we thought we’d start by offering a nice Caribbean cruise,” said Philip Silvestri, founder and CEO of SILGON.

The invite was sent out exclusively to SILGON clients, as well as to Casa de Campo villa owners subscribed to The Weekly, the email newsletter SILGON sends out every Monday morning with all the latest news and events. [If you don’t get The Weekly, please click here to sign up now.]

Departing from the Casa de Campo – La Romana port on Sunday December the 21st, the group of Casa de Campo voyagers started their vacation by being welcomed on board the MSC Música by Philip Silvestri, founder and CEO of SILGON and Rebecca Hughes, editor of publications. Among the group were a varied cross-section of the Casa de Campo community, including a lively group of Italians, Ronny Duluc and his entire family of more than 20, Headmaster of the Abraham Lincoln School, Harry Magee, and former Miss Dominican Republic and runner-up of Miss Universe, Renata Soñe.
