Silversea Cruises will embark on a unique 50-day circumnavigation of Australia on board its current flagship ultra-luxury vessel, Silver Muse, in late 2020. Operating round-trip from Sydney, the unique journey includes side trips to New Zealand and Indonesia, with maiden port calls at Mooloolaba in Queensland and Busselton in Western Australia.
The ‘close to home’ journey takes in 30 ports and features overnight stays in Perth, Bali, Cairns and Sydney. After three days at sea, guests will explore seven destinations in New Zealand, including Nelson, Port Chalmers, Steward Island and Milford Sound. Then, guests will return to Australia, visiting Burnie in Tasmania before travelling across the Great Australian Bight to Kangaroo Island and Busselton en route to Fremantle. The trip then tracks north to Geraldton, Broome and Indonesia where it stops at Kupang, Dili, Komodo and then Benoa, Bali. The next leg explores Lembar before returning to Australian waters, with calls at Thursday Island at the tip of Queensland, Cairns, Airlie Beach, Mooloolaba, Brisbane, before returning to Sydney on 20 December 2020.
The voyage is made up of three back-to-back cruises on Silver Muse, which can be sold individually, paired or as part of the entire round trip. The voyages comprise:
- 21-day Sydney to Fremantle on 31 October 2020;
- 12-day Fremantle (Perth) to Benoa (Bali) on 21 November 2020; and
- 17-day Benoa (Bali) to Sydney on 3 December 2020
Guests on the 596-guest Silver Muse will be pampered along the way, with open seating and up to eight specialty restaurants on board, complimentary caviar and premium champagne, wines and spirits. Butler service is standard with all suites and complimentary Wi-Fi, gratuities and an in-suite bar stocked with selected beverages is included.
An early booking saving of 10% is available on select voyages.
The complete 50-day itinerary is priced from AU$28,890 per person twin share with the early booking bonus.
