“These voyages have been handcrafted in order to offer a wide-angle view of Australia,” Silversea said in an email to passengers today [Tuesday 28 September 2021].
“Make the most of the coast and explore a wealth of home-spun destinations from the stunning Freycinet Peninsula in Tasmania to Airlie Beach in Queensland’s glorious mix of saltwater lagoons and natural rainforests. What’s more, with overnights and late departures on every voyage, we promise an opportunity to travel deeper, wherever you are,” the cruise line said.
Silversea highlights on each itinerary that the program’s launch hinges on regulatory approvals, stating: “Silversea[‘s] resumption of cruising in Australian domestic waters is subject to Federal and state government approvals”.
Regarding health and safety, the company also notes “Silversea will continue to work closely with the Australian governing bodies and health authorities to evolve its health and safety procedures, as new health recommendations are issued.”
