The Mediterranean has seduced poets, artists, and more than a few conquerors over the centuries. Write your own odyssey there with Silversea’s 47-day voyage throughout the region, from the French Riviera’s glittering rosé-and-yacht scene to medieval ruins and famed truffles on the Croatian coast to the whitewashed villages of Greece’s Patmos Island. During this round-trip sailing from Barcelona, the 382-passenger Silver Shadow calls on 39 ports (including Venice, Rome, and Athens) in nine countries. Departure: June 10, 2019.
On Silversea’s grand, first-ever Asia Pacific extended route, the 596- passenger flagship Silver Muse makes some big leaps in 74 days – from New Zealand’s lush, unpeopled fjords to the densely populated skyscrapers of Singapore, Hong Kong, and Shanghai to a little-known island in the Philippines where fireflies light the night. Starting in Sydney, the cruise visits 39 ports in 12 countries to finish in Tokyo, right on time for Japan’s renowned cherry blossom season. Departure: February 2, 2019.
South America is a continent so varied and inspiring, it creates its own mixtape soundtrack. Let samba, tango, bossa nova, panpipes, and drums provide the backdrop as you plumb the Inca empire, catamaran among Chilean glaciers, sip pisco sours on the beach, embrace gaucho life, and stay up way past bedtime in the land of Carnaval. Your floating hotel: the Silver Shadow, which sails the 64-day route round-trip from Fort Lauderdale, calling on 31 ports in 17 countries, with overnights in Cartagena, Guayaquil, Lima, and Buenos Aires. Departure: January 24, 2019.
Circumnavigate the planet in 140 paradigm-shifting days aboard the 382-passenger Silver Whisper’s long-way-around journey from Fort Lauderdale to Amsterdam.

A taste of the global perspective: Buenos Aires, Valparaíso (with a zig south to spy seals, whales, and icebergs on the Antarctic Peninsula), Tahiti, Sydney, Singapore, Mumbai, Civitavecchia (Rome), and Dublin. Departure: January 6, 2020.
