Silversea Cruises has unveiled details of two Grand Voyages, scheduled to circumnavigate South America in 2017.
Stretching from the Amazon to the Atacama Desert and the glacial peaks of the Andes, South America is a land of stunning extremes, featuring the world’s highest waterfall, the world’s longest mountain range, the world’s driest desert and the world’s largest rainforest.
Now, Silversea guests can discover the continent’s dramatic diversity while sailing roundtrip from Fort Lauderdale aboard one of two bespoke voyages – a 63-day Silver Spirit cruise departing on Jan. 16, 2017, or a 66-day cruise aboard the line’s newest ship, Silver Muse, departing on Oct. 13, 2017.
According to officials, theses voyages are designed for the traveller who relishes a more leisurely pace, combining the luxury of sailing aboard an intimate, elegant ship with the excitement of discovering South America’s most captivating ports, unique cultures and breathtaking scenery.
Highlights include a crossing of the Panama Canal; two days cruising Chile’s majestic fjords; a two- or three-day stopover in Rio de Janeiro; plus multi-day calls in Buenos Aires and Callao (gateway to Lima and Machu Picchu).
“Our Circle South America voyages are perfectly suited to the traveller who has the time and passion to indulge in travel on a grand scale,” said Kristian Anderson, Silversea’s senior vice-president and general manager for the Americas. “No matter which one you choose, you’ll enjoy an epic voyage of virtually unlimited discoveries.”
Fares for the Grand Voyages start at US$25,005 per person for Silver Spirit and US$31,005 per person for Silver Muse, based on double occupancy. For further information and detailed itineraries, visit http://bit.ly/1P7Dq1c.
