Silversea Unveils 2024-2025 Voyage Collection

Silversea Cruises has unveiled its 2024-2025 voyage collection, comprising 341 itineraries that will visit 695 destinations in 120 countries between March 2024 and May 2025. Eleven of Silversea’s ships will embark upon the new sailings, with additional voyages aboard Silver Endeavour to be announced soon. The 2024-2025 voyage collection includes the inaugural season of Silver Ray in summer 2024 as the cruise line’s second Nova-class ship.

As Silver Nova’s sister ship, Silver Ray will strengthen the cruise line’s commitment to sustainability, incorporating a trio of power sources that include a fuel cell system, battery technology and dual fuel engines that will use liquefied natural gas as the main fuel. Silver Ray’s inaugural season will begin in May 2024 in Northern Europe and the Mediterranean. From the Atlantic Isles to the Greek Isles, passengers can embark on a series of summer and autumn voyages, ranging from seven to 12 days. In December 2024, Silver Ray will cross the Atlantic to Fort Lauderdale to unlock the Caribbean and Central America for guests. Finally, a circumnavigation of South America, an Amazon River cruise, and a return to Fort Lauderdale will set the stage for a transatlantic crossing back to Europe, departing in April 2025.

As many as six ships will explore over 60 destinations in 23 countries in Africa and the Indian Ocean, with expedition options aboard Silver Cloud and Silver Wind, complemented by voyages aboard Silver Dawn, Silver Muse, Silver Whisper and Silver Spirit. New expedition itineraries in South Africa will showcase wildlife with game drives and water activities. A new 18-day Silver Cloud voyage in April 2024 will explore East Africa’s Indian Ocean islands, offering the chance to discover the coastal fishing culture of Madagascar’s semi-nomadic Vezo people; Madagascar’s Kirindy Forest Reserve; and the ruins of Kilwa Kisiwani in Tanzania. Besides, six oceangoing voyages of 16 to 17 days will transit the Suez Canal; two of these in November 2024, aboard Silver Spirit and Silver Whisper, will offer access to the Nabataean ruins of Hegra in northwest Saudi Arabia.

Guests will explore the South Pacific aboard expedition ship Silver Cloud and the oceangoing Silver Shadow and Silver Moon. Included among the 13 voyages are new itineraries visiting the islands of Hawaii and French Polynesia, including Fakarava. Silver Cloud’s expedition voyages will explore Melanesia, Micronesia and Easter Island.

Silver Wind, the expedition ship, and three ocean-going ships—Silver Spirit, Silver Dawn and Silver Ray—will journey to 105 destinations in Northern Europe, from the iconic cities of the Baltic Sea to the fjords of Norway and the British Isles. A total of nine voyages will be devoted to the Norwegian fjords. Silver Dawn will offer guests the chance to experience coastal Norway amid the colorful foliage of autumn and, perhaps, witness the Northern Lights, while the North Cape will take center stage on a mid-June 2024 voyage. Silver Spirit will circumnavigate Iceland on three voyages during summer 2024. A collection of Atlantic Coast voyages will include a 14-day voyage in September 2024 aboard Silver Spirit.

Silversea will focus on the Mediterranean from March to December 2024. Ocean-going ships Silver Whisper, Silver Spirit, Silver Moon, Silver Dawn and Silver Ray will call in 111 destinations in 20 countries. There are several itineraries scheduled in the Greek Isles and Turkey, six voyages to the Holy Land, and in September 2024, a new voyage to the Balearic Islands aboard Silver Whisper—marking a return to Ibiza. Guests traveling aboard Silver Whisper and Silver Spirit in May can experience the Monaco Grand Prix 2024, with exclusive events.

With 31 voyages, Silver Muse and Silver Nova will offer an expanded variety of options in Alaska. A series of seven-day itineraries will showcase towns such as Ketchikan and Sitka, as well as Valdez—gateway to the Columbia Glacier. Several new extended voyages of 10 and 11 days offer longer stays in Juneau, besides the Mendenhall Glacier and the Mendenhall Ice Caves. Also highlighting the new Alaska program are Silver Muse’s 14-day combination voyages, which link back-to-back cruises of seven days to create one journey.

New 12-day itineraries in Canada and New England aboard Silver Shadow include overnight calls in Québec or Boston, as well as an exploration of the Îles de la Madeleine Archipelago or a visit to Saint John, New Brunswick, with its Reversing Falls. During autumn, a series of 10-day voyages will focus on iconic cities, including Halifax, while offering the chance to witness autumn foliage.

In summer 2024, Silver Wind will explore the Arctic and Greenland on eight expedition voyages. Among the highlights are a collection of nine-day cruises that will journey to the glaciers and Norway’s Svalbard Archipelago. Longer 12-day expeditions will also highlight Iceland. In-depth expeditions to Greenland and Arctic Canada offer the chance to experience Inuit culture and spot wildlife, from walruses, polar bears and bowhead whales, to orcas, narwhals and beluga whales. Other highlights include a 24-day crossing of the Northwest Passage aboard Silver Wind and a new 18-day expedition spotlighting wild Alaska.

Both Silver Cloud and Silver Wind will unlock Antarctica’s natural treasures on 21 expedition cruises, offering an industry-high ratio of onboard expedition experts, complemented by an industry-high ratio of Zodiacs. Six-day Antarctica Bridge options will allow guests to skip the Drake Passage and fly straight to Antarctica to start their cruise. Antarctic Peninsula voyages of 10 and 12 days offer the chance to cruise the iconic Cape Horn from Puerto Williams. Longer voyages calling in South Georgia and the Falkland Islands abound in opportunities to witness orcas, sea lions, seals and five kinds of penguins.

Silversea is offering 25 voyages aboard expedition ship Silver Cloud and the ocean-going Silver Muse and Silver Nova—including inaugural seasons for Silver Nova in Australia and Silver Cloud in The Kimberley region. Silver Nova will offer a set of seven longer and more diverse itineraries, exploring the coast of Australia, New Zealand, Melanesia and Micronesia, while shorter voyages that will focus on Australia and New Zealand highlight Silver Muse’s schedule.

Other noteworthy deployments include a set of 27 voyages devoted to Asia, including Silver Nova’s inaugural calls in the continent; 10 voyages to South America, including Silver Ray’s debut in the land of the Inca, the Amazon and the tango; 18 voyages to the Caribbean and Central America aboard Silver Shadow and Silver Moon, as well as Silver Ray’s inaugural voyage to the region; and 52 expeditions aboard Silver Origin, which will take guests closer to the natural wonders of the Galápagos Islands.
