Silversea unveils a whopping 86 new itineraries

We’ve been craving good news stories about cruise-based travel, and Silversea has heeded the call.

The luxurious line has unveiled 86 new itineraries for summer 2021/22, with an exclusive pre-sale on offer for its Venetian Society members before general sale on 17 June.

With sailings departing between October 2021 and April 2022, the new trips showcase Australia and New Zealand, the Caribbean, South America, Galapagos, Middle East and Asia.

There are also a range of close-to-home sailings with the freshly re-vamped Silver Shadow joining Silver Muse as the line’s second vessel to be based Down Under.

Maiden calls include Phillip Island and Geelong in Australia; Manama, Bahrain; Miyako, Japan; Makassar, Indonesia; Vigan Salomague, the Philippines; Puerto Bolivar, Ecuador and Kingstown, St. Vincent.

Other highlights include:

  • Old favourites and hidden hotspots around Australia and New Zealand with 12 new close-to-home voyages on board the 596-guest Silver Muse and the 388-guest Silver Shadow.
  • A wide range of trips across Asia, including Japan, Vietnam, and new itineraries to Indonesia and Papua New Guinea.
  • A 74-night circumnavigation of South America aboard new ship Silver Dawn, exploring the Amazon River: Sailing round-trip from Fort Lauderdale.
  • New itineraries on both Silver Shadow and Silver Moon in the Middle East and the Persian Gulf, plus new adventures in India, Sri Lanka, and Myanmar, including a maiden call in Manama, the capital city of Bahrain.
  • 30 Galapagos voyages aboard 100-guest ship Silver Origin, including longer holiday options of 10 and 11 days.
  • Departing from both Fort Lauderdale and Bridgetown, Silver Spirit and Silver Whisper will sail through the Caribbean, showing off secret spots alongside hotspots.
  • Silversea’s World Cruise, the Tale of Tales 2022: Journeying from 65°S to 65°N, Silver Whisper will visit 69 destinations across 32 countries, departing 6 January 2022.

If you book your client’s trip before 30 June, they will receive Silversea’s new Double Bonus offer, through which guests can reserve their voyage with low deposits from just $1,500 per suite.
