“We are delighted to launch these new summer 2021/22 voyages,” says Adam Radwanski, Silversea’s Managing Director Asia Pacific. “Our new voyage collection offers numerous maiden calls, the opportunity to select from three different Silversea ships in Asia and our most extensive Australia & New Zealand program to date, combined with a number of other adventures such as an in-depth exploration of the Amazon River”.
Maiden calls in the global program are Miyako, Japan; Makassar, Indonesia; Vigan Salomague, the Philippines; Phillip Island and Geelong in Australia; Manama, Bahrain; Puerto Bolivar, Ecuador; and Kingstown, St. Vincent.
Key highlights of the 2021 / 2022 cruise season include a diverse range of voyages across Asia, including an enhanced offering in Japan, a deep exploration of Vietnam, and new itineraries to Indonesia and Papua New Guinea aboard the Silver Muse, Silver Shadow and new ship Silver Moon.
Silver Moon will offer five alluring options in Southeast Asia, travelling between Hong Kong and Singapore with a focus on captivating Vietnam. Silver Muse will sail eight different voyages in the region, including the opportunity for an immersive discovery of Japan on four round-trip voyages from Tokyo; while Silver Shadow will offer four diverse and leisurely itineraries, with options to extend stays in both Yangon and Ho Chi Minh.
A key highlight of the season will be two unprecedented voyages to the fascinating and unspoiled paradise of Papua New Guinea, during a cruise between Singapore and Cairns in January and April 2022, which also include special experiences in Komodo and Makassar.
The cruise line will also offer the most extensive Australia and New Zealand program to date, with 12 new voyages aboard two ultra-luxurious Silversea ships, the elegant 596-guest Silver Muse, and the completely reimagined 388-guest Silver Shadow.
From December to February Silver Muse will capture the essence of Australia and New Zealand, with four voyages between Auckland and Sydney offering a deep exploration of New Zealand in combination with Southeast Australia, including Sydney, Melbourne, and Hobart in Tasmania. Other options will include a combination of the Western Coast of Australia and the Java Sea.
