Silversea Cruises is now accepting reservations for its 2017 world voyage, 116 days from San Francisco to Monte Carlo on Silver Whisper.

The ship will visit 62 destinations in 25 countries, with numerous late night and overnight stays.

The cruise sails Jan. 6 from San Francisco to Hawaii and across the International Date Line to the South Pacific, New Zealand and Australia. It continues to Bali and Sandakan before reaching Shanghai, Hong Kong and Singapore. The itinerary includes destinations in India, Arabia and the Mediterranean.

Travelers on the full voyage will get special amenities, including a gala bon voyage reception, dinner and overnight stay at the Four Seasons Hotel in San Francisco, baggage valet service, business-class air and transfers (between airport, hotel and Silver Whisper), a $4,000 on-board credit (per double-occupancy suite), laundry service and commemorative gifts.

Plus, Silversea is including dry cleaning service and free unlimited Wi-Fi for all full-cruise travelers.

Three shoreside events are offered to those who book the 116 days: a visit to China's terra-cotta warriors in Xian on an overnight tour from Shanghai; the chance to see free-roaming exotic animals on Sir Bani Yas island off the coast of Abu Dhabi, followed by a sumptuous lunch at the island's resort; and dancing to 1940s music at a nostalgic dinner served amid the planes and heroes of Hangar 37, the entry point to Hawaii's Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor.

Two 'Silversea Experiences' will be complimentary for travelers sailing 50 or more days: a festive beach party with lunch and entertainment on Boracay Island and an exclusive presentation at Malta's Teatru Manoel, a restored 18th-century theater.

All-inclusive fares start at $61,550 per person, double occupancy.
