MONACO - Silversea Cruises has unveiled its new 2024-2025 voyage collection, comprising 341 new sailings that will unlock 695 destinations in 120 countries between March 2024 and May 2025- bringing the total number of destinations in Silversea's portfolio to over 900. The expansive offering is the largest in the cruise line's history, with more options for guests thanks to a 56 percent increase in capacity by 2024 when compared to 2020. Eleven of Silversea's ultra-luxury ships will embark upon the new sailings, with additional voyages aboard Silver Endeavour to be announced soon. The 2024/2025 voyage collection includes the inaugural season of Silver Ray, which will strengthen Silversea's commitment to sustainability when she debuts in summer 2024 as the cruise line's second Nova-class ship. Encompassing all corners of the world, the 2024-2025 itinerary collection includes an unprecedented variety of tailor-made experiences, immersive itineraries, and 25 maiden calls to inspire travelers' wanderlust.
Silversea Cruises has unveiled its new 2024-2025 voyage collection featuring 341 new sailings to 695 destinations.
Unveiling the new voyage collection, Silversea held an exclusive virtual premiere for selected guests and travel advisors on July 28, which incorporated a high-end fashion show. The cruise line challenged six celebrated designers to express the world's beauty through fashion, with each taking inspiration from the cultures, colors, and tastes of one region represented in the collection. Entitled 'Colour the World,' the innovative production was hosted by Fernando Barroso de Oliveira, Silversea's President's Ambassador to the Venetian Society, who presided over a catwalk-inspired journey through select destinations of the new collection. The event also featured a Q&A session with Roberto Martinoli, President and CEO, Barbara Muckermann, Chief Commercial Officer, and Conrad Combrink, SVP Expeditions, Destination and Itinerary Management, who shared their insight with curious guests and travel advisors.
"Our new voyage collection for summer 2024 and winter 2024/2025 reflects our guests' desire for new and unique experiences in the most iconic and remote destinations around the world," said Roberto Martinoli, President and CEO, Silversea Cruises. "Our new collection features 11 ships in our fleet - including Silver Ray, the second ship in our Nova class - with an increase in capacity of 56 percent by 2024 when compared to 2020; this will enable our guests to enjoy unprecedented choice in terms of ships and voyage options. Not only will these 341 new sailings immerse travelers deep into each destination, enabling even the most experienced travelers to discover lesser-visited destinations or venture off-season to rediscover the world from a new perspective, but they will also further expand Silversea's global reach. We also look forward to revealing new itineraries for Silver Endeavour, the most luxurious ship in expedition cruising, which will further diversify our industry-leading polar offering."
"In an industry first, we decided to reveal our new 2024/2025 itinerary collection with an exclusive fashion show," said Barbara Muckermann, Chief Commercial Officer, Silversea Cruises. "Not unlike haute couture, in which designers create exceptional collections that excite and inspire, we chose to 'colour the world' this year, unveiling our new itineraries by pairing featured regions with the unique interpretations of six celebrated designers to showcase the world's rich cultures, colors, and tastes. There are parallels between travel and fashion: both encourage a deep respect for diversity, an appreciation for different cultures, and an element of self-enrichment. I am proud of the powerful message that we have conveyed, and I hope our guests find inspiration for the experiences that await."
"Silversea has increased its industry-leading range of experiences with the launch of its largest itinerary collection to date for 2024/2025," said Conrad Combrink, SVP Expeditions, Destination and Itinerary Management, Silversea Cruises. "With 341 itineraries unlocking both Polar Regions, the South Pacific, Africa and the Indian Ocean, the Galapagos, and so much more, Silversea has once again demonstrated its destination leadership, immersing curious travelers into the world in a way that only we can."
