Telling Tales On Silversea

Silversea Cruises has revealed the identities of three new Tale Tellers for the company’s World Cruise 2019 – each Tale Teller will illustrate one of the nine segments of the extended voyage.

Steve McCurry, Alain de Botton, and Sophy Roberts will each embark Silver Whisper for a segment of Silversea’s 52-port voyage, joining Paul Theroux, Pico Iyer and four other Tale Tellers who are yet to be announced.

Each one will host a series of lectures for guests while on board and will produce a literary journal or artwork, inspired by their sailed destinations, to capture their experiences. Their efforts will enrich the onboard experience for Silversea guests and will combine to create a fascinating anthology of the voyage, which will be presented as a gift to world cruisers.

Steve McCurry has been one of the most iconic voices in contemporary photography for more than 30 years.

Alain de Botton has been a member of the Royal Society of Literature since 2011, and is a widely published author whose literary works have been bestsellers in 30 countries.

Sophy Roberts has written for numerous magazines and newspapers, including Condé Nast Traveler, The Wall Street Journal, and the Financial Times.

Silversea’s World Cruise 2019 sails from San Francisco on Jan.6, 2019 and concludes in Greenwich, London on May 19, 2019. It will visit 31 countries across five continents over a 132-day period.
