Silversea Cruises has opened the books on its World Cruise 2018, a 121-day sailing from Los Angeles to Rome, departing Jan. 6, 2018.

The sailing will be hosted aboard the all-suite Silver Whisper, allowing travellers to voyage in luxury to 60 destinations in 21 countries across the globe, with an itinerary that includes virtually every highlight recommended by the line’s veteran world cruise guests. Plus, with 17 overnight calls and 13 late-night stays, participants will have ample time to fully immerse themselves in local culture.
