Silversea has unveiled its highly anticipated World Cruise 2019, an epic 132-day voyage from San Francisco to London aboard the all-suite luxury liner, Silver Whisper.
Travelling in superior comfort and style, guests will journey to 52 ports in 31 countries, across five continents, with the itinerary including 16 overnight calls and numerous late-night stays, allowing ample time for destination immersion.
Titled “The Tale of Tales,” the voyage features innovative destinations and unique features, such as an overnight in Tokyo with two full days, a circumnavigation of Africa with an overnight in Cape Town, a stopover in Saint-Malo, the gateway to UNESCO World Heritage Site Mont Saint-Michel, and the chance to sail the Guadalquivir River in Seville, to name just a few.
Furthermore, this special voyage will host nine writers, including award-winning travel writer and novelist Paul Theroux and renowned writer Pico Iyer, who will each create a short story inspired by the beautiful regions and fascinating cultures visited. The result will be an exclusive anthology of the voyage, an unprecedented portrait of The Tale of Tales.
“World Cruise 2019 has been crafted to tell a fascinating story about our planet,” Silversea chief marketing officer Barbara Muckermann says.
“From island hideaways and ancient temples to tribal cultures and nature preserves, guests will be treated to extraordinary discoveries – all while enjoying the understated luxury and small-ship camaraderie of Silver Whisper.”
The all-inclusive World Cruise 2019 will be made even more memorable with a variety of special amenities and events, including a Bon Voyage reception and overnight luxury hotel stay in San Francisco, Business Class flights and transfers, US $4,000 onboard spending credit, complimentary laundry and dry cleaning service, special commemorative gifts and much more.
“It’s the perfect setting for guests to create exciting new chapters in their own lives, shaped by new experiences and perspectives.”
