Full French Polynesia season for Silver Whisper

Pre-sale opens for 17 voyages on two itineraries in 2026

Silversea will operate its first-ever full summer season in French Polynesia, opening an exclusive pre-sale on 17 voyages between April and September 2026 aboard Silver Whisper. The leading ultra-luxury travel brand will operate two itineraries in rotation, offering deep immersion into 11 of some of the world’s most remote destinations in three of the region’s five archipelagos — the Society, Tuamotu, and Marquesas Islands.

“Silversea’s rapid increase in capacity has opened opportunities for even deeper immersion into the world’s most enriching regions, such as French Polynesia,” said Conrad Combrink, Silversea’s SVP Expeditions, Destination and Itinerary Management.

“There is no better way to experience these idyllic islands and atolls than by ship, and there is no better ship to connect travellers meaningfully with each destination than Silver Whisper, which is set to become the most luxurious ship to sail in the region.

“In addition to being the most spacious ship deployed to French Polynesia, she will have the most personalised service, with a crew-to-guest ratio of 1:1.3 and butler service for every suite. Our all-inclusive door-to-door offering, meanwhile, will enable our guests to focus on simply immersing themselves into the destinations and savouring the experience.”

French Polynesia comprises 118 islands and atolls, combining world-renowned natural beauty with iconic wildlife experiences and unique cultural encounters. Appealing to curious travellers who are eager to journey beyond the region’s idyllic landscapes, Silver Whisper’s new voyage collection will unlock many of the most enriching experiences available in the South Pacific, enabling travellers to embrace the culture of mana and form authentic connections with local communities. Silversea’s 392-guest ship will spend multiple nights in destinations across her seven- and 14-day sailings, offering travellers more time to explore ashore than the region’s existing cruise offering.

Two immersive itineraries

From 6 April 2026, Silver Whisper will undertake 17 voyages in French Polynesia, homeporting out of Papeete, Tahiti.

Seven Days: The Society Islands

The shorter of the two itineraries sees Silver Whisper journey among the Society Islands’ most iconic destinations, as well as off-the-beaten-path gems. From Papeete, Tahiti, guests will journey to Moorea, Raiatea on an overnight call, Huahine, and Bora Bora overnight. Three late departures maximise guests’ time in Papeete, Moorea, and Huahine, enabling them to connect with the rich Polynesian culture, captivating local traditions, and the region’s 3,000-year history.

In Huahine, travellers can join a cultural nature walk to discover the archaeological sites of the village of Maeva, while admiring tropical plants and stunning treetop views of the coastline. In Moorea, Bora Bora, and Huahine, guests can snorkel in crystal-clear waters for the chance to witness hundreds of fish species and corals. Guests will also have the option of relaxing on a private island or motu, enjoying a traditional barbeque and local music.

14 Days: The Society, Tuamote and Marquesas Islands

Guests in search of a longer, more encompassing sailing need only look to Silver Whisper’s 14-day voyage, which combines the very best aspects of the great diversity of French Polynesia.

Departing from Papeete, Tahiti, guests will explore Moorea, Raiatea on an overnight call, Fakarava, Nuku Hiva, Fatu Hiva, Atuona, Tahuata, Rangiroa, and Bora Bora, before returning to Papeete. As well as discovering the iconic peaks of the Society Islands and snorkelling to admire the archipelago’s abundant marine life, guests on both itineraries can spot whales (August-November), accompanied by expert guides; learn about local culinary traditions in a test kitchen in Moorea; and discover Raiatea by electric bicycle, among other immersive experiences. As on the seven-day itinerary, guests will also have the chance to relax on a private island, as a highlight experience.

Additionally, a 21-day Easter Island sailing, departing Valparaiso on 16 March, and two combination voyages broaden the regional offering for guests.
