Silversea unveils new collection in haute couture catwalk

Silversea Cruises has pulled out all the stops to unveil its new 2024-2025 voyage collection with a high-end fashion show for travel trade and selected guests.

The new offering is the largest in the line’s history, comprising 341 new sailings that will unlock 695 destinations in 120 countries between March 2024 and May 2025—bringing the total number of destinations in Silversea’s portfolio to over 900.

Eleven of Silversea’s ultra-luxury ships will embark upon the new sailings, with additional voyages aboard the newly acquired Silver Endeavour to be announced soon.

The 2024/2025 voyage collection includes the inaugural season of Silver Ray, which will strengthen Silversea’s commitment to sustainability when she debuts in summer 2024 as the cruise line’s second Nova-class ship.

Encompassing all corners of the world, the 2024-2025 itinerary collection includes an unprecedented variety of tailor-made experiences, immersive itineraries, and 25 maiden calls to inspire travellers’ wanderlust.

Unveiling the new voyage collection, Silversea challenged six celebrated designers to express the world’s beauty through fashion, with each taking inspiration from the cultures, colours, and tastes of one region represented in the collection.

Entitled ‘Colour the World,’ the production was hosted by Fernando Barroso de Oliveira, Silversea’s ambassador to the Venetian Society, who presided over a catwalk-inspired journey through select destinations of the new collection.

The event also featured a Q&A session with Roberto Martinoli, president and CEO, Barbara Muckermann, chief commercial officer, and Conrad Combrink, SVP expeditions, destination and itinerary management, who shared their insight with guests and travel advisors.

“Our new voyage collection for summer 2024 and winter 2024/2025 reflects our guests’ desire for new and unique experiences in the most iconic and remote destinations around the world,” Martinoli said.

“Our new collection features 11 ships in our fleet—including Silver Ray, the second ship in our Nova class—with an increase in capacity of 56 per cent by 2024 when compared to 2020; this will enable our guests to enjoy unprecedented choice in terms of ships and voyage options.

“Not only will these 341 new sailings immerse travellers deep into each destination, enabling even the most experienced travellers to discover lesser-visited destinations or venture off-season to rediscover the world from a new perspective, but they will also further expand Silversea’s global reach.

“We also look forward to revealing new itineraries for Silver Endeavour, the most luxurious ship in expedition cruising, which will further diversify our industry-leading polar offering.”
