Since opening the bookings for the Legends of Cruising World Cruise 2020 last month, luxury cruise line, Silversea, has seen a marked increase in early bookings when compared to previous launches of Silversea World Cruises in the last five years.
The company has reported a record response rate from both existing Silversea customers and first time cruisers, and the World Cruise 2020 has topped the charts, attracting customers with Silver Whisper – the first ship to visit all seven continents on a 140-day world cruise.
In addition, the top Owner’s Suites – worth AUD$323,000 per booking – sold out immediately, further demonstrating a robust level of consumer confidence in the luxury cruising market.
Visiting more than 62 ports in over 32 countries, the World Cruise 2020 is making history by including the expedition experiences of Antarctica in the itinerary. In addition, there will be 40 new destinations from the 2018 and 2019 Silversea itineraries, further consolidating Silversea as a trailblazer for innovation in the luxury cruising sector.
A first in the history of cruising, Silversea’s World Cruise 2020 will pass through both the Northern and Southern Fjords, and also include the spectacular landscape of Antarctica, no doubt capturing the imagination of consumers.
“With larger cruise lines significantly reducing their capacity on World Cruises, Silversea is increasingly becoming the prime choice for world cruisers looking for real in depth destination experiences” says Barbara Muckermann, Chief Marketing Officer Silversea.
With rates starting at AUD$92,000, the record number of bookings for the 2020 World Cruise demonstrates a growing demand for once in a lifetime, luxury travel experiences.
Up to 382 passengers are set to embark on Silver Whisper for the World Cruise 2020 and the ship will be the most intimate within the ultra-luxury segment to ever undertake a world cruise, offering guests an unprecedented selection of on-board events, a tailor-made collection of excursions and bespoke overland programs.
Suites on the World Cruise 2020 are available from AUD$134,044 per person, based on two people sharing in a Veranda 3-Suite. Early bookers will also benefit from a range of offerings, including US$2,000 Ship Board Credit, Return Business class air, private transfers, unlimited Wi-Fi and laundry services.
