Silversea Cruises continues to push boundaries with the announcement of two pioneering World Cruises in 2021, including the world’s first ever ‘Expedition World Cruise’. Offering distinct experiences and differing ways to discover our planet, the two World Cruises will enable Silversea’s guests to travel deeper into the world’s authentic beauty on their own terms, as they cruise in superlative comfort.


The 2021 ‘Expedition World Cruise’ is best described as the ‘uncharted world tour.’ Beginning in the world’s southernmost town, Ushuaia in Argentina on 30 January 2021, the 167-day voyage concludes at Tromsø, inside the Arctic Circle in Norway. The ultra-luxurious ice-class crossover vessel Silver Cloud will call at 107 of the planet’s most amazing destinations. After visiting Antarctica and the Chilean fjords the cruise continues to Tahiti, via Easter Island and Pitcairn Island, then it’s on to Lautoka, Fiji; Vanuatu; the Solomon Islands; Papua New Guinea; Cairns and Australia’s Kimberley Coast. The compass is then set for Indonesia; Singapore; Sumatra; Sri Lanka; Cochin; Piraeus (Athens); Lisbon; Reykjavik; and the Svalbard Region.


For connoisseurs of travel who wish to get closer to the authentic beauty of the world at a relaxed pace, enjoying the opportunity to form deep connections and savour experiences over time, the 2021 World Cruise beckons. Referred to as the ‘Finest World Tour,’ this 54-port, 150-day, 34-country itinerary begins with the departure of Silver Whisper from Fort Lauderdale on 7 January, 2021.


After several ports in Central America and a transit of the iconic Panama Canal, guests will reach Callao (Lima), before enjoying the delights of Easter Island and various other highlights of the South Pacific, before arriving in Auckland. The World Cruise will continue onto Sydney, Brisbane, Cairns and Darwin, before reaching Benoa in Bali. Various stops throughout the Philippines, Taiwan and South Korea precede the ship’s arrival in Tokyo. After Kagoshima, guests will travel deeper to the iconic destinations of Asia: Shanghai, Hong Kong, Ho Chi Minh City, Singapore, Yangon (Myanmar), Colombo, and Mumbai. Silversea’s guests will then set sail for Piraeus (Athens) and Lisbon, before crossing the Atlantic Ocean on the final stretch of the momentous 2021 World Cruise to New York.
