Silversea Cruises has unveiled a 167-day Expedition World Cruise as part of its World Cruises program in 2021 aboard the “ice-class crossover” ship, Silver Cloud.
The two World Cruises will enable Silversea’s guests to travel deeper into the world’s authentic beauty on their own terms, as they cruise in superlative comfort. Both world cruises will feature a range of ports in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.
“By operating two World Cruises in 2021, we are increasing the offering for our guests and pushing boundaries in the world of travel,” says Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, Silversea’s Executive Chairman.
“Building on our already remarkable World Cruise offering, Silversea will become the first ever cruise line to launch an Expedition World Cruise in 2021,” says Roberto Martinoli, Silversea Cruises’ CEO.
An exclusive pre-sale to world-cruising guests of 2019 and guests booked on the World Cruise 2020 has now opened, with sales for the two World Cruises 2021 to open to the general public in March 2019.
2021 Expedition World Cruise: The Uncharted World Tour
Affirming the cruise line’s market leadership in its 10th year of expedition travel, Silversea reveals the 2021 Expedition World Cruise.
Described as the ‘Uncharted World Tour’, the fully inclusive 2021 Expedition World Cruise is unprecedented in regards to the scope of immersive experiences on offer: the itinerary is crafted to connect the most rewarding travel experiences around the planet.
Departing from Ushuaia, Chile on 30 January 2021 and bound for Tromsø, Norway, the 167-day voyage will call at 107 of the planet’s most amazing destinations in 30 must-visit countries, including six new ports of call for Silversea (Naxos, Folegandros, Nafpaktos, Ksamil, Bejaïa, and Fort William). The two-bedroom Owner’s Suite on Silver Cloud is offered at a price just short of US$1 million for the entire World Cruise.
Silver Cloud will journey between Antarctica’s highlight destinations before setting course for Chile’s Valparaiso via the Chilean Fjords. Guests will set sail for Papeete, Tahiti, via Easter Island and the fabled Pitcairn Island, before voyaging towards Lautoka, Fiji. Calls in a number of other iconic destinations in Oceania – including remote exploration stops in Vanuatu, the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea – precede guests’ arrival in Cairns, Australia, which then leads to the Kimberley Coast. Guests will subsequently unlock various destinations in Indonesia before arriving in Singapore. Next, Silver Cloud will set sail for Sumatra, Sri Lanka and Cochin, India, prior to reaching Piraeus (Athens), Lisbon and Reykjavik.
Part of an emphatic conclusion, guests will then explore the highlights of Iceland, ahead of calls in the Svalbard Region and the voyage’s conclusion in Tromsø, Norway on 16 July 2021.

Dubbed the ‘Finest World Tour’, this 54-port, 150-day, 34-country itinerary will start and finish in the USA aboard Silver Whisper from Fort Lauderdale on 7 January 2021, and will conclude in New York on 6 June.
From Fort Lauderdale, Silver Whisper will unlock many remarkable destinations for guests in Central America. After transiting the iconic Panama Canal, guests will reach Callao (Lima), before enjoying the delights of Easter Island and various other highlights of the South Pacific Region, and subsequently arriving in Auckland, New Zealand.
From New Zealand, the World Cruise will continue onto Sydney, Brisbane, Cairns and Darwin, before reaching Benoa in Bali. Various stops throughout the Philippines, Taiwan and South Korea precede the ship’s arrival in Tokyo. After Kagoshima, guests will travel deeper to the iconic destinations of Asia: Shanghai, Hong Kong, Ho Chi Minh City, Singapore, Yangon, Colombo, and Mumbai.
Silversea’s guests will next set sail for Piraeus (Athens) and Lisbon, before crossing the Atlantic Ocean on the ultimate stretch of the World Cruise 2021 to New York.
