35 countries, five continents, and 20 new calls aboard one of the smallest world-cruising ships, Silversea’s 149-day global voyage for 2027 will visit more destinations than any sailing in the brand’s history

(MIAMI – May 28, 2024) Silversea, the leading ultra-luxury and expedition cruise travel brand, has unveiled its richest voyage ever for its World Cruise 2027, The Three Oceans. Silver Dawn, one of the smallest world-cruising ships, will depart Los Angeles on January 8 and arrive in Copenhagen on June 7, 2027, calling in 80 destinations – more than any voyage in the brand’s history – in 35 countries on five continents, including 20 new calls for a Silversea World Cruise and 11 overnights.

Designed by Silversea’s leading destination experts, the 149-day voyage will unlock the unique cultures, histories, and ideas of the Pacific, Indian, and Atlantic oceans, connecting over 50 UNESCO World Heritage Sites and offering longer in port than any other World Cruise. A series of bespoke events, offering exclusive access to tailor-made experiences in true Silversea style, will enhance the voyage for guests.

“Calling in more destinations than any voyage in Silversea’s history, we proudly unveil The Three Oceans World Cruise 2027, which broadens our industry-leading offering of extended voyages,” said Bert Hernandez, president, Silversea. “Traveling aboard Silver Dawn, one of the smallest ships to embark on a World Cruise, our guests will venture off the beaten path to 80 destinations on five continents over 149 days, with the longest stays in port of any World Cruise. They will explore more than 50 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, discover 20 destinations that have never been visited on a Silversea World Cruise, and attend four exclusive World Cruise events – bespoke experiences, curated by our team of experts. Garnered over 30 years of operations, our destination expertise will enable our guests to discover the very best experiences in ultra-luxury cruise travel.”

THE THREE OCEANS: OFF THE BEATEN PATH TO 80 DESTINATIONS

Calling in more destinations than ever as the most enriching voyage in the brand’s history, The Three Oceans World Cruise 2027 is set to offer guests unprecedented destination diversity. The Pacific, Indian, and Atlantic oceans represent not only the geographical route for the sailing but also three varying chapters in this singular World Cruise story. Each ocean will unveil unique places, cultures, and stories that will come alive on board and off, as guests celebrate crossing from one to another, with regional events, entertainment, gifts, lectures, and more.

  • AN OCEAN OF TIME: THE PACIFIC OCEAN

Slowing down to appreciate the art of traveling, as well as the unmatched beauty of Hawaii and French Polynesia, guests will journey through the Pacific Ocean, from Los Angeles to Brisbane, over 46 days. Time spent on many of the planet’s most idyllic beaches, with unequalled wildlife opportunities, will complement a deep dive into regional culture – highlighted by traditional Fijian architecture, rich Polynesian heritage and history, and Melanesian cuisine. Standout destinations include Hilo, Kahului, and Honolulu in Hawaii; Nuku Hiva; Rangiroa; Moorea; Bora Bora; Apia; Lautoka; Champagne Beach; Lifou; Airlie Beach in the Whitsundays; Darwin; and Brisbane. As well as having the opportunity to visit the UNESCO-listed Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, guests will enjoy a bespoke World Cruise event on this beautiful archipelago, honoring ancient Polynesian seafarers at a sunset ho'olaule'a in Honolulu, with traditional fare, tropical libations, and a night of stargazing.

  • AN OCEAN OF LIFE: THE INDIAN OCEAN

Between Brisbane and Cape Town, travelers will reconnect with Mother Nature, connecting with ancient cultures and witnessing iconic wildlife. An immersion into the Indian Ocean will center upon a seven-day deep dive of South Africa, inspired by Silversea’s extensive scouting in the region, with safari experiences to spot the Big Five in some of the planet’s most spectacular landscapes. Highlights of this chapter include Bali, Semarang, Singapore, Colombo, the Maldives, Seychelles, Reunion, South Africa, and more. UNESCO-listed highlights of this segment include a visit to the Great Barrier Reef and a chance to explore the Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve on the island of Praslin, Seychelles. An included two-night overland experience from Durban to Port Elizabeth will enable world-cruising guests to journey deeper ashore into the heart of southern Africa, immersing them into one of the seven natural wonders of the world, the Victoria Falls. Guests will arrive by air to witness the majesty of these iconic falls from every angle, including a private sunset river cruise. Accommodated in unique comfort in a luxury outpost alongside the Zambezi River, they will discover this mighty natural phenomenon as Dr. Livingstone found it in 1855.

  • AN OCEAN OF DISCOVERY: THE ATLANTIC OCEAN

The Three Oceans World Cruise 2027 will enable travelers to follow the footprints of humanity’s evolution between Cape Town and Copenhagen, exploring the region’s dramatic landscapes and ancient secrets. From the fjords of Norway to the remote northern islands of the United Kingdom, the storied maritime history of Northern Ireland, and the famed cities of Northern Europe, the advancement of civilization is open to interpretation in each of the Atlantic Ocean’s varied attractions. Departing Cape Town before venturing along the west coast of Africa, Silver Dawn will unlock Namibia, Angola, Ghana, and Gambia, before arriving in Dakar. Praia, Arrecife, Agadir, Casablanca, and more, precede guests’ arrival in Lisbon. And various destinations throughout the Western Mediterranean and the United Kingdom lead to North Europe. Curated by Silversea’s destination experts, the brand’s guests will enjoy a bespoke night of musical performance at St. Anne’s Cathedral in Belfast, with an evening of harmonies from across the Emerald Isle, fine local gastronomy, and various cultural celebrations in a magnificent setting.

Each stay in port has been selected to optimize the experience in each destination. As well as 11 overnights in such iconic destinations as Honolulu, Cairns, Colombo, Cape Town, Bordeaux, and more, Silver Dawn will spend longer in port than any other World Cruise, enabling greater access to more enriching experiences – the ancient city of Kandy, the Yala National Park, and game drives from Port Elizabeth, for example.

SILVER DAWN: ONE OF THE SMALLEST WORLD-CRUISING SHIPS

Traveling aboard the ultra-luxury Silver Dawn, one of the smallest world-cruising ships, guests will benefit from the small-ship intimacy and one of the highest space-to-guest ratios at sea, at 68 GRT-per-guest, which are hallmarks of the Silversea experience. All guests will enjoy the personalized service of a butler and an industry-high crew-to-guest ratio. A complimentary treatment and a host of wellness experiences offered through the Roman-inspired Otium wellness programwill indulge guests as they discover the world.

S.A.L.T.: CULTURAL IMMERSION THROUGH THE CULINARY LENS

The latest Muse-class ship offers travelers immersive culinary experiences, both on board and ashore, through Silversea’s S.A.L.T. culinary program. In the S.A.L.T. Lab, an onboard test kitchen, an array of culinary programs curated by regional food experts will enable travelers to get hands-on with local ingredients. In the S.A.L.T. Kitchen, the menu changes constantly, inspired by regional dishes and flavors. The S.A.L.T. Bar will serve custom-designed cocktails related to visited destinations.
