Silversea Cruises has announced 54 new winter 2020/2021 voyages which will unlock more immersive experiences for the cruise line’s guests, with an increased number of unique ports for the winter season and 20 maiden calls.
Comprising the winter itineraries of Silver Muse, Silver Whisper, Silver Shadow, Silver Spirit and Silver Moon – an ultra-luxury sister ship to Silver Muse , due to join the fleet in August 2020 – the new collection of voyages will showcase the wonders of the Caribbean, springtime in Asia, and the best of both Australia and South America on respective circumnavigations. Simplifying guests’ journeys, travelers will enjoy complimentary round-trip economy class flights, or business class upgrades starting from USD 199 per leg, and transfers on virtually all voyages in the new collection (exceptions and market-specific conditions may apply).
A combined total of 26 voyages aboard Silver Shadow, Silver Whisper and Silver Moon will enable guests to form meaningful connections with 46 destinations in the Caribbean. In addition to many quintessential experiences—such as immersive journeys into the rainforests of St. Lucia, opportunities to explore the chic boutiques of St. Barth, and tranquil moments spent in the Spanish-tiled courtyards of San Juan—Silversea’s guests will discover more intimate, lesser-visited ports, such as Jost Van Dyke, Bequia, and Mayreau. Guests will also have the opportunity to travel deeper into the vibrant culture and spectacular landscapes of Cuba. For guests’ convenience, many Caribbean voyages will depart and/or culminate in Fort Lauderdale.
