Since the opening of reservations for the Legends of Cruising 2020 cruise last month, Silversea has seen a marked increase in advance bookings compared to the previous Silversea World Cruises launch in the past five years.
With a record response rate from both Silversea customers and first-time cruise passengers, World Cruise 2020 has topped the booking lists. Silver Whisper will be the first ship to visit the seven continents on a 140-day cruise around the world. In addition, the Owner Suites sold out immediately, demonstrating a solid level of consumer confidence in the luxury cruise market.
World Cruise 2020 will make history by including the experiences of the Antarctic expedition in the itinerary and visiting more than 62 ports in 32 countries. In addition, there will be 40 new destinations on the Silversea 2018 and 2019 itineraries, further consolidating Silversea as the pioneer of innovation in the luxury cruise industry.
“With larger cruise lines significantly reducing their capacity in World Cruises, Silversea is increasingly becoming the first choice for all those cruise passengers looking to visit destinations in depth,” says Alfredo Spadon, General Director for Europe and Asia of Silversea. “With prices starting at € 55,000, the record number of reservations for the World Cruise 2020 demonstrates a growing demand for unique luxury travel experiences once in a lifetime.”
Up to 382 passengers will embark on Silver Whisper for the World Cruise 2020 and the ship will be the most intimate in the ultra luxury segment for a world cruise. In addition, it will offer its guests an unprecedented selection of on-board events and tailor-made excursions.
Suites of the World Cruise 2020 are available from € 55,000 per person. Guests can book their spaces aboard Silver Whisper by contacting their preferred travel agency or by calling Silversea Reservations (phone numbers by country on silversea.com). Advance reservations will benefit from a variety of offers, including $ 2,000 on-board credit, Bussines Class on flights (only in selected countries and airports), transfers and unlimited Wi-Fi and laundry services.
