Luxury line Silversea has announced a new itinerary – the first ever Expedition World Cruise set to launch in 2021 which will take you to some of the most remote destinations in the world.
The line also marked the opening of the pre-sale of not only its Expedition World Cruise but also the 2021 World Cruise to previous cruise guests of 2019 and guests booked on the World Cruise in 2020.
The Silversea 2021 Expedition World Cruise is fully inclusive and is focused on expedition. The line has said it will appeal to those who love discovery, those who like to stay active and those who have a sense of adventure.
Sailing from Ushuaia, Chile to Tromsø, Norway the 167-day voyage will call at 107 of the planet’s most amazing destinations, in 30 must-visit countries—including six new ports of call for Silversea (Naxos, Folegandros, Nafpaktos, Ksamil, Bejaïa, and Fort William). The two-bedroom Owner’s Suite on Silver Cloud is offered at a price just short of USD$1 million for the entire World Cruise.
There will be lots of special speakers – from naturalists to explorers so guests can get a better understanding of some of the remote destinations that they are visiting. There will be informative lectures from Silversea’s Expedition Team; and featured lectures from many world-class experts, including, among others, the inspirational Felicity Aston MBE—a recipient of the Polar Medal and the first and only woman to cross Antarctica alone—and Tim Severin—a world-renowned explorer who has retraced the storied journeys of Saint Brendan the Navigator, Sindbad the Sailor, Jason and the Argonauts, Ulysses, The First Crusade, and Genghis Khan.
Guests will enjoy a private dinner on London Tower Bridge’s walkway, an exclusive Viking feast in Kjarnaskogur Forest in Iceland, and a number of other bespoke events around the world. Moreover, for a segment of this innovative World Cruise, Silversea’s Senior Vice President of Expedition and Destinations Experiences, Conrad Combrink, will feature as Expedition Leader, enriching the voyage for guests.
Departing Ushuaia on 30th January 2021, Silversea’s ultra-luxurious ice-class crossover, Silver Cloud, will journey between Antarctica’s highlight destinations, before setting course for Chile’s Valparaiso via the Chilean Fjords. Subsequently, guests will set sail for Papeete, Tahiti, via Easter Island and the fabled Pitcairn Island, before voyaging towards Lautoka, Fiji.
Calls in a number of other iconic destinations in Oceania—including remote exploration stops in Vanuatu, the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea—precede guests’ arrival in Cairns, Australia, which then leads to the Kimberley Coast. Guests will subsequently unlock various destinations in Indonesia, before arriving in Singapore.
Next, Silver Cloud will set sail for Sumatra, Sri Lanka and Cochin, India, prior to reaching Piraeus (Athens), Lisbon, and Reykjavik. Part of an emphatic conclusion, guests aboard Silversea’s 2021 Expedition World Cruise will then explore the highlights of Iceland, ahead of calls in the Svalbard Region and the voyage’s conclusion in Tromsø, Norway, on 16th July 16 2021.
