Silversea’s five new Grand Voyages for 2022-2023 include:
• SILVERSEA’S FIRST-EVER EUROPEAN GRAND VOYAGE – 72 destinations in 22 countries
Connecting the Mediterranean Grand Voyage and the Northern Europe Grand Voyage for those in search of a longer, more immersive discovery of the Old Continent, Silversea’s first-ever European Grand Voyage will depart from Piraeus (Athens) on March 30, 2022. Travelling aboard Silver Moon, Silversea’s guests will explore 72 destinations in 22 countries over 90 days, enjoying seven exclusive events and eight overnights in iconic cities—including Istanbul, Sorrento, Bordeaux and Saint Petersburg, among others—before arriving in Stockholm on June 28.
• AN ALL-NEW MEDITERRANEAN GRAND VOYAGE – 33 destinations in 12 countries
Between March 30 and May 6, guests travelling aboard Silver Moon on the Mediterranean Grand Voyage will enjoy bespoke discovery in 33 destinations across 12 countries—including Greece, Turkey, Albania, Montenegro, Croatia, Italy, Slovenia, Malta, France, Monaco, Spain, and Portugal. Between Piraeus (Athens) and Lisbon, travellers will venture deep into Europe’s captivating cultures in both iconic ports and smaller, lesser-visited gems, including Portofino and Dikili. At exclusive events, guests will discover the fascinating 1001 column cisterns of Istanbul, the equestrian traditions and flavours of Andalusia in Cadiz, and the charm of Italy’s Agriturismo culture in Bari.

From Melbourne, the cruise line’s guests will travel through eight countries aboard Silver Muse—including Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, Singapore, Vietnam, China, and Japan—before arriving in Osaka on March 15. In Hobart, Tasmania, guests will enjoy champagne and canapes as they journey upriver for a private dinner at the acclaimed Museum of Old and New Art, as well as an exclusive evening at the opera in Sydney, and a personalised event at Shanghai’s famous Lion restaurant.
• A NEW SOUTH AMERICA GRAND VOYAGE – 39 destinations in 23 countries
Circumnavigating South America, Silver Moon will sail roundtrip from Fort Lauderdale on the new South America Grand Voyage between January 6 and March 16, 2023. Over 69 days and with nine overnights, travellers will form deep connections with the continent’s most fascinating cultures and spectacular landscapes, as they explore 39 destinations in 23 countries. Socialising with like-minded travellers at bespoke events, guests will attend a private party at Valparaiso’s Casas del Bosque Winery, dance to the rhythm at the world-famous Rio de Janeiro carnival on extended calls, and enjoy a romantic evening under the stars on a private beach in St. Barts.
