Silversea Cruises today announced the details of its 2018 itineraries, which will sail to 1,000 destinations in 130 countries, according to the Monaco-based company.
Passengers will have the choice of almost 1000 destinations across the world, almost 600 via the Expedition fleet and over 400 with the Classic fleet, said Silversea in a statement.
“At Silversea, we don’t believe that ‘bigger is better’, in fact we believe and deliver the complete opposite. A belief perfectly illustrated by our commitment to smaller, more intimate ships that clearly respond to the desires of our guests that tend to favour a refined and understated elegance,” said Roberto Martinoli, CEO at Silversea Cruises.
“However, in this instance, as we announce our new itineraries, enlarging the range of destinations, further enriching our guests with new cultural references, giving more opportunity to make discoveries, guaranteeing a bigger circle of friends and overloading on unforgettable memories can only be a positive thing.”
“As the company that introduced Expedition cruising to the luxury market, Silversea continues to innovate and over-deliver on destinations and experiences, and remains the pioneer in this regard,” adds Martinoli, “2018 will see our expedition ships call at over 250 new destinations and will be the inaugural calendar year for Silver Cloud in the expedition fleet following her conversion, making her the most luxurious cruise ship for expeditions.”
Silver Cloud starts 2018 as an ice-class expedition ship following a refurbishment and conversion, hinting at its polar intentions. Silver Discoverer sails deeper into Asia, with many new destinations in Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, Cambodia, the Philippines and Japan. Climates that range from positively polar to the totally tropical guarantee that Silversea Expeditions are able to cater to a broad range of traveller, wherever they wish to venture.
