Silversea Cruises has taken the wraps off its World Cruise 2014, a 113-day odyssey from Los Angeles to Barcelona aboard Silver Whisper, January 6 to April 30, 2014. Silversea celebrates its 20th anniversary next year and will launch the festivities with this stimulating exploration of the world.
Guests aboard World Cruise 2014 will journey in luxury as they visit 54 destinations in 29 countries, enjoying 12 overnight stays along the way. Silver Whisper will follow a westward path across the Pacific to call on lush Polynesia and lands Down Under, including Hawaii, Samoa, Tonga, Australia and New Zealand. From there, the ship will sail up to the remote island of Koror and then head west to spend a month exploring fascinating Asian cultures — from China, Japan, and Vietnam to Thailand, Singapore, and India — including three days in Yangon, Myanmar. Silver Whisper will conclude her global tour calling on modern capitals and ancient cities in the Mediterranean.
“We designed the itinerary for next year’s World Cruise based on input from our past guests,” said Steve Odell, president for Europe and Asia Pacific, Silversea. “It’s a world voyage crafted for connoisseurs. With several overnight visits and late-night departures, our guests will have plenty of time for in-depth cultural exploration in places that most travellers only dream about,” he added.
