Luxury cruise package comes in at a cool US$1.5 million

Got a client with US$1.5 million to spare? The UK’s Six Star Cruises has unveiled what it is describing as the world’s most lavish 124-day cruise vacation aboard Silversea Cruises’ Silver Whisper. And, with a price tag of just over US$1.5 million per couple, a commission most agents would kill for. Departing from Los Angeles on Jan. 1, 2013 the voyage includes visits to 28 countries, including French Polynesia, Madagascar, Cameroon, the Maldives and Mauritius. The epic holiday begins in the UK with the arrival of a Sikorsky helicopter to take passengers to London’s Heathrow airport. While onboard the chopper, guests can indulge in Beluga Caviar priced at a staggering US$6,320 per kilogram and the finest Dom Perignon Rosé. Waiting to take them to and from the US is a private Boeing Business Jet complete with a spacious lounge, bedroom and even a dining room personally serviced with a top Michelin star chef who will create a bespoke 10-course tasting menu. A chauffeured Rolls Royce Phantom transfers guests to and from the ship. While onboard Silversea Cruises’ Silver Whisper, the holidaymakers will call the opulent Royal Suite home. It features more than 90 square metres and has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a separate dining area and bar and two spacious balconies. Silversea’s 2013 World Cruise is a travel experience with an itinerary that has guests exploring African gamelands, coastal deserts, gilded pagodas and much more. Prior to boarding the ship, this ultra-luxe package includes a four-night stay in the top suite of the Beverley Wilshire Hotel in Beverley Hills. Post-cruise, the journey continues to a four-night stay in an US$11,534 per night villa set in the exclusive, gated community on Sunset Island in Miami. (
