(MIAMI – June 27, 2024) Silversea, the leading ultra-luxury and expedition cruise travel brand, has opened general sales on its World Cruise 2027, The Three Oceans. Set to call in 80 destinations – more destinations than any voyage in the company’s history – the 149-day sailing will connect 50 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 35 countries. Additional opportunities to meaningfully connect with the local culture will abound, with exclusive events crafted by Silversea’s destination experts, dozens of S.A.L.T. (Sea and Land Taste) culinary experiences, various seasonal enrichments, and much more.

Silver Dawn, one of the most intimate world-cruising ships, will depart Los Angeles on January 8 and arrive in Copenhagen on June 7, 2027, unlocking the unique cultures, histories, and ideas of the Pacific, Indian, and Atlantic oceans for guests. Responding to strong demand for all-new destinations among Silversea’s guests, the itinerary incorporates 20 new calls for a Silversea World Cruise – many of which are accessible only to small ships, such as Langebaan, South Africa; Hambantota, Sri Lanka; and San Sebastian, Spain.

“With our World Cruises and industry-leading range of extended voyages, we sail to the most captivating and enriching destinations at the optimal times of the year, creating once-in-a-lifetime experiences through our unique destination expertise,” said Bert Hernandez, president, Silversea. “In 2027, guests can explore 50 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, exclusive World Cruise events, and destination-enhancing culinary experiences through our S.A.L.T. program – all while traveling in Silversea’s trademark comfort. There is simply no better way to experience such a diverse array of iconic experiences in 2027 than by joining us on The Three Oceans World Cruise.”


Among the voyage’s many highlights, 50 UNESCO World Heritage Sites will connect Silversea’s guests with the most iconic landmarks, cultures, and environments across five continents. Standout experiences will include:

Los Angeles to Brisbane via the Pacific Ocean:

  • From Los Angeles, guests on The Three Oceans World Cruise 2027 will arrive in Hawaii in time for the humpback whale watching season, where they will have the chance to discover two international biosphere reserves.
  • UNESCO-listed highlights of the South Pacific will include the Royal Tombs of the Kingdom of Tonga, the Historical Port Town of Levuka on Kadavu Island, Chief Roi Mata’s Domain on Champagne Beach, and the Noumea Lagoons of New Caledonia.

Brisbane to Cape Town via the Indian Ocean:

  • Spectacular UNESCO-listed landscapes and unique wildlife experiences will characterize guests' time in Australia, with the Gondwana Rainforests, the Kakadu National Park, and the iconic Great Barrier Reef - in turtle nesting season - all featuring on the itinerary.
  • Venturing on to Southeast Asia, guests will experience the rich cultural landscape of Bali, including the Borobudur Temples, and the historic city of George Town.

  • Silver Dawn’s arrival in South Africa coincides with the beginning of the dry season, meaning safari experiences to spot the big five will be conducted to a backdrop of verdant greenery. UNESCO sites in South Africa will include iSimangaliso Wetland Park and Robben Island.
  • Arriving at the perfect time of year to see the Victoria Falls in full flow, guests will enjoy an exclusive World Cruise event at the planet’s greatest sheet of falling water.

Cape Town to Copenhagen via the Atlantic Ocean:

  • UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the Western Mediterranean will include Bordeaux and the Port of the Moon, the Historic Center of Oporto, Lisbon’s Tower of Belém, and the Cave of Altamira in Spain.
  • In Morocco, guests can explore the spice-scented medina of Marrakesh.
  • Travelers will engage with the storied history of the United Kingdom, journeying back in time at Skara Brae in Scotland’s Orkney, the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland, the medieval Caernarfon Castle in Wales, and Cornwall and West Devon’s mining landscape in England.
  • From Dublin, Silversea’s guests will explore the Archaeological Ensemble of the Bend of the Boyne — Europe's largest and most important concentration of prehistoric megalithic art.
  • Ahead of arriving in Copenhagen at the voyage’s conclusion, guests will experience many of Northern Europe’s most enriching points of interest, including Urnes Stave Church in Oslo, on a call that coincides with Norway’s National Music Day; Bergen Wharf; the Røros Mining Town in Trondheim; and Kronborg Castle, among others.


In addition to 11 overnights in such iconic destinations as Honolulu, Papeete, Colombo, Cape Town, Singapore, Bordeaux, and more, guests will spend longer in port than on any other World Cruise, averaging over 12 hours in port, with late departures in two-thirds of all visited destinations. As such, Silversea’s guests will benefit from deeper exploration on land, with immersive experiences curated by the company’s destination experts — from Colombo, for example, guests can access the sacred city of Kandy, the Old Town of Galle, Sigiriya (Lion’s Rock), and the Sinharaja Forest Reserve.


As well as a bon voyage gala dinner, a series of special events will enhance the voyage for guests, offering exclusive access to tailor-made experiences in true Silversea style:

  • On the beautiful archipelago of Hawaii, guests will honor ancient Polynesian seafarers at a sunset ho'olaule'a in Honolulu, with traditional fare, tropical libations, and a night of stargazing.
  • An included two-night overland experience from Durban to Port Elizabeth will enable travelers to journey deeper ashore into the heart of southern Africa. Guests will arrive by air to witness the majesty of the iconic Victoria Falls from every angle – accommodated in unique comfort in a luxury outpost alongside the Zambezi River.
  • Guests will enjoy a curated night of musical performance at St. Anne’s Cathedral in Belfast, with harmonies from across the Emerald Isle, fine local gastronomy, and various cultural celebrations.


The latest Muse-class ship offers travelers immersive culinary experiences, both on board and ashore, through Silversea’s S.A.L.T. culinary program, which changes with the destination. Guests will savor approximately 350 regionally inspired dishes, 50 localized menus, 50 local cocktails, 25 S.A.L.T. experiences ashore, over 20 S.A.L.T. Talks, and over 50 S.A.L.T. Lab classes.
