Silversea’s World Cruises offer a rare opportunity to circumnavigate the globe in style.

What if you could experience immersive, luxurious travel in not just one country or one continent, but all over the globe—and you could do it in a single trip?

That’s exactly what you’ll get on a World Cruise from Silversea. Over several months, you’ll sail to 30 or more countries, experience authentic cultures and natural beauty, and bask in the glow of amazing food and service along the way. Of course, you’ll need to have the flexibility to spend 150+ days away from home, but the chance to visit unforgettable destinations like Easter Island and the Suez Canal is a great incentive. (As is making your friends jealous with social media posts…easy to do with unlimited Wi-Fi aboard the ships!)

If you can swing the time away, Silversea is offering two of these can’t-miss trips in 2021, both bookable now. They’re dreamy opportunities for globetrotters to cross oceans and seas while sampling a vast breadth of iconic highlights. Here are your options.


Around the World, Off the Beaten Path
The sheer scope of Silversea’s first-ever expedition world cruise, The Uncharted World Tour, is mind-blowing: 30 countries, 107 ports, 167 days at sea.

And the “expedition” factor means the focus is on remote, off-the-beaten path destinations. You’ll board the luxurious Silver Cloud in Ushuaia, Argentina on January 30, 2021 and head to the wonderland of Antarctica (knock out that 7th continent!), then set off across the Pacific (Easter Island, anyone?). Meet the residents of fascinating Papua New Guinea before making stops in Australia, Sri Lanka, Oman, Athens, Sicily, Portugal, and Iceland (just to name a few), then finish in Tromso, Norway on July 16.

It sounds like a whirlwind—and it is—but it’s paced to allow for discoveries along the way. In fact, all of the immersive shore excursions are included, as are special experiences like a private dinner on the walkway of London’s Tower Bridge and a Viking feast in Iceland’s otherworldly Kjarnaskogur Forest.

You’ll hear from experts like Felicity Aston, the only woman to cross Antarctica alone, and explorer Tim Severin, who has retraced the steps of renowned adventurers like Genghis Khan. And you’ll have plenty of time to relax on board the Silver Cloud, enjoying the all-suite accommodations, dining in its four gourmet restaurants, relaxing on deck, and taking in the view from its panoramic lounges.


Global Greatest Hits
Cultural treasures, World Heritage Sites, and fascinating, fun local experiences are all part of Silversea’s Finest World Tour, which visits an impressive 34 countries and 54 ports over a period of 150 days.

You’ll depart from Ft. Lauderdale aboard the Silver Whisper on January 7, 2021, then settle in for this grand adventure. Sail south to transit the Panama Canal and visit Lima. Then it’s off to see the iconic heads of Easter Island before continuing west to visit the fabled South Pacific, along with New Zealand and Australia. You’ll do a deep dive into Asia, with adventures in places like Tokyo, Ho Chi Minh City, and Mumbai. The Middle East? You bet: Oman, Jordan, and Israel make for fascinating stops. After, see the highlights of Athens and Spain’s beautiful Costa del Sol before crossing the Atlantic, playing on Bermuda’s pink-sand beaches, and finishing in New York City on June 6.

And that’s just scratching the surface. Shore excursions offer opportunities that are culturally immersive—like cooking lessons in Myanmar and learning about Maori heritage in New Zealand—and naturally gorgeous, like snorkeling in Jordan’s Red Sea and taking an elephant safari in Bali. You’ll also enjoy a traditional masquerade ball in Venice and a night at the races in Hong Kong. Along the way, take advantage of unique programs like Dine Around Town, indulging in a bespoke menu at a fine restaurant in two cities.

You’ll find plenty of amazing dining back on board the Silver Whisper, too. Choose from four gourmet restaurants, then relax out on deck before returning to your luxurious ocean-view suite to dream of the adventures you’ll have the next day...and the next...and the next.
