Unprecedented Demand

Silversea Cruises reports that it has shattered its bookings records with its new arts-inspired World Cruise 2023, entitled ‘South Side Story – All the World’s a Stage.’

Following the most successful pre-sale in the cruise line’s history, the 139-day voyage fully sold out on the day of its general opening. The immersive voyage will take guests deep into the Southern Hemisphere, sailing from the South Seas to the Amazon Rainforest and beyond, calling in 66 destinations in 34 countries across five continents.

Roberto Martinoli, Silversea’s President & CEO, said: “We are delighted to have seen unprecedented demand for our World Cruise 2023, South Side Story, which sold out within hours of its general opening.”

Martinoli continued: “The most successful World Cruise launch in the history of our cruise line, this triumph pays testament to the strong demand we are seeing in the market, particularly from affluent, sophisticated travellers. I strongly advise our travel partners to be quick in adding their interested clients to the voyage’s waitlist, as Silver Shadow is sure to embark upon this remarkable itinerary at capacity.”

Following a Bon Voyage reception and dinner aboard the intimate, all-suite Silver Shadow, guests traveling aboard the World Cruise 2023 will depart Sydney on Jan. 10, 2023, and arrive in Fort Lauderdale on May 28.

The itinerary will present a mix of destinations, from the remote wonders of Papua New Guinea, Mauritius, Réunion Island, and Cape Verde to iconic regions and cities, often unlocked on overnight calls (20 in total), including 10 days spent exploring Tasmania and New Zealand, three days in Myanmar, and a full week in South Africa. And, for the first time on a Silversea World Cruise, Silver Shadow will sail the Amazon River to unlock the natural and cultural wonders of this legendary region.

In another first in the history of Silversea, each guest will enjoy a seamless World Cruise journey that starts and ends at their doorstep, with private executive transfers to and from their local airport.

Moreover, guests will benefit from private assistance to their gate/lounge and gain access to designated airline lounges.

They will then enjoy a superior flight experience from select U.S. and U.K. gateways to Sydney, Australia, experiencing a new level of comfort in Qantas Business Class with more space to relax and a dedicated cabin. They will taste the freshest seasonal ingredients and enjoy Australian hospitality in-flight, presented by Qantas Airways in partnership with Silversea. Once in Sydney, travellers will then experience VIP arrival assistance, private executive transfers, and priority embarkation. Silver Shadow’s butlers will then be available to assist guests in unpacking, should they wish.

Fares for World Cruise 2023 range from US$74,000 to US$278,000 per guest, based on double occupancy.
