Silversea is rolling out several exclusive complimentary events and new mid-voyage land adventures for Silver Whisper's World Cruise in 2013, a 115-day journey from Los Angeles to Fort Lauderdale, departing Jan. 5.
In addition to a gala Bon Voyage reception, dinner and overnight stay at the Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel on the night prior to embarkation, other complimentary events that will be offered to guests sailing the full World Cruise include an exclusive evening of cocktails and dinner at Singapore's members-only China Club. Built atop the Capital Tower, the club offers panoramic views and a '30s and '40s atmosphere. From Cape Town, guests will journey through the Cape Winelands region to enjoy a wine tasting, gala dinner and overnight stay at a luxury hotel in Stellenbosch.
Additionally, a complimentary Silversea Experience, Dinner in the Desert, will be offered in Walvis Bay. Set in the Namib Desert, this evening will include live music, a fire-spinning performance and buffet-style dinner.
Also available is a collection of 14 optional mid-voyage land adventures, nearly half of which are brand new. Each of the overland extensions includes deluxe accommodations (if overnight stays are required), porterage, all transfers, sightseeing and some meals.
