Silversea unveils first-ever full summer season in French Polynesia

Responding to strong guest demand, Silversea has announced its first-ever full summer season in French Polynesia.

Between April and September 2026, the cruise company is opening an exclusive pre-sale on 17 voyages aboard Silver Whisper.

Curated by Silversea’s destination experts following an extensive scouting mission in the region, Silversea will operate two itineraries in rotation, offering deep immersion into 11 of some of the world’s most remote destinations in three of the region’s five archipelagos — the Society, Tuamotu, and Marquesas Islands.

“Silversea’s rapid increase in capacity has opened opportunities for even deeper immersion into the world’s most enriching regions, such as French Polynesia,” said Conrad Combrink, Silversea’s senior vice-president of expeditions, destination and itinerary management. “In addition to being the most spacious ship deployed to French Polynesia, she [Silver Whisper] will have the most personalized service, with a crew-to-guest ratio of 1:1.3 and butler service for every suite. Our all-inclusive door-to-door offering, meanwhile, will enable our guests to focus on simply immersing themselves into the destinations and savoring the experience.”

About French Polynesia

Spread over a region similar in size to continental Europe, French Polynesia comprises 118 islands and atolls, combining world-renowned natural beauty with iconic wildlife experiences and unique cultural encounters.

Appealing to curious travelers who are eager to journey beyond the region’s idyllic landscapes, Silver Whisper’s new voyage collection will unlock many of the most enriching experiences available in the South Pacific, enabling travellers to embrace the culture of mana and form authentic connections with local communities.

Travelling slowly to immerse guests deep into each destination, Silversea’s 392-guest ship will spend multiple nights in destinations across her seven- and 14-day sailings, offering travellers more time to explorer ashore than the region’s existing cruise offering.
