Silversea have announced the launch of two new Grand Voyages for 2024.
From their diverse itineraries to the tastes of the dishes on board, the special events, and the commemorative gifts, every aspect of Silversea’s Grand Voyages is considered and tailored to create an unforgettable and meaningful experience for guests.
Silversea’s two new Grand Voyages for 2024 include:
- The Grand Voyage Mediterranean 2024 – 34 destinations, 13 countries, 43 days.
Departing Lisbon on October 4, 2024, aboard the beautiful Silver Spirit, Silversea’s guests will journey deep into the Mediterranean over 43 days, calling in iconic ports and hidden gems among 34 destinations in 13 countries. Travellers will explore the Iberian Peninsula, the Principality of Monaco, the stunning landscapes of Croatia, and the marvels of ancient Israel, among other storied regions. As well as calls in Barcelona, Rome, Monte Carlo, Korcula, and more, Silversea’s guests will enjoy overnights in Cadiz, Alexandria, Naples, and Jerusalem. The voyage’s focus will be on connecting guests with each destination’s authentic culture and rich history, through unique experiences and bespoke events. In Dubrovnik, Silversea’s guests will wander back in time through one of the world’s most spectacular medieval towns, accompanied by the famous Dubrovnik Guards in period dress, visiting the 15th-century Revelin Fortress for canapes, drinks, and performances from some of Croatia’s best entertainers. The sailing concludes in Athens (Piraeus) on November 16.
- The Grand Indian Ocean Expedition 2024 – 45 destinations, 12 countries, 66 days.
Silver Cloud will depart Port Elizabeth (Gqeberha) on April 4, 2024, to unlock the off-the-beaten-path destinations of the varied and diverse Indian Ocean. Over 66 days, Silversea’s guests will discover the region’s unique wildlife, beautiful landscapes, and ancient history of 45 destinations in 12 countries, before arriving in Darwin on May 24. Before departure, all Silversea guests joining the Grand Indian Ocean Expedition will enjoy an included two-night pre-cruise overland programme: the ultimate African adventure in Shamwari, a private game reserve in South Africa, where travellers will witness many of the continent’s most iconic wildlife species and enjoy the cruise’s Bon Voyage dinner reception. The Grand Voyage’s numerous highlights include an exploration of Madagascar’s verdant jungle, moments of relaxation on the remote beaches of the Maldives, and snorkelling and diving opportunities in some of the world’s most vibrant waters. In the UNESCO-listed Kilwa Kisiwani, Tanzania, Silversea’s guests will connect with local culture at the ruins of Malindi Mosque, Fort Gereza, the tombs of the sultans, and the Great House. They will learn about the lives of the semi-nomadic people of Vezo, who safeguard their ancestral way of life in Belo sur Mer, Madagascar. They will encounter some of the planet’s richest wildlife grounds, from the Seychelles’ Bird Island to the Addo Elephant Park in South Africa, where all manner of endemic species await.
