MIAMI, March 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Silversea Cruises has shattered its bookings records with its new arts-inspired World Cruise 2023, entitled 'South Side Story - All the World's a Stage'. Following the most successful pre-sale in the cruise line's history, the 139-day voyage fully sold out on the day of its general opening. The immersive voyage will take guests deep into the Southern Hemisphere, sailing from the South Seas to the Amazon Rainforest and beyond, calling in 66 destinations in 34 countries across five continents.
"We are delighted to have seen unprecedented demand for our World Cruise 2023, South Side Story, which sold out within hours of its general opening," says Roberto Martinoli, Silversea's President & CEO. "The most successful World Cruise launch in the history of our cruise line, this triumph pays testament to the strong demand we are seeing in the market, particularly from affluent, sophisticated travelers. I strongly advise our travel partners to be quick in adding their interested clients to the voyage's waitlist, as Silver Shadow is sure to embark upon this remarkable itinerary at capacity."
As it charts a course through captivating landscapes, each segment will unlock the history, culture and spirit of the people and places visited. Exclusive World Cruise events will open the doors to the sights, tastes and rhythms of local life, and shine a light on regional music, art, theatre, and dance traditions with authentic performances. Recently previewed through Silversea's largest-ever creative production, this exceptional world journey will provide an epic stage for discovery, with each guest enjoying the role of both spectator and storyteller.
Following a Bon Voyage reception and dinner aboard the intimate, all-suite Silver Shadow, guests traveling aboard the World Cruise 2023 will depart Sydney on January 10, 2023, and arrive in Fort Lauderdale on May 28. The itinerary will present an extraordinary mix of destinations, from the remote wonders of Papua New Guinea, Mauritius, Réunion Island, and Cape Verde to iconic regions and cities, often unlocked on overnight calls (20 in total), including 10 days spent exploring Tasmania and New Zealand, three days in Myanmar, and a full week in South Africa. And, for the first time on a Silversea World Cruise, Silver Shadow will sail the Amazon River to unlock the natural and cultural wonders of this legendary region.
In another first in the history of Silversea, each guest will enjoy a seamless World Cruise journey that starts and ends at their doorstep, with private executive transfers to and from their local airport. Moreover, guests will benefit from private assistance to their gate/lounge and gain access to designated airline lounges.
