With a record response rate from both Silversea loyalists and first-time cruisers, world cruise 2020 has 'topped the charts,' the line said. In addition, the top owner’s suites, priced at $480,000 per double-occupancy booking, sold out immediately, which Silversea said demonstrates a 'robust level of consumer confidence in the luxury cruise market.'
Antarctica a highlight
The 382-passenger Silver Whisper will visit all seven continents on its 140-day voyage, including, very unusual, Antarctica. The ship is due to call at 62 ports in more than 32 countries on its Fort Lauderdale to Amsterdam journey.
In addition, there will be 40 new destinations from the line's 2018 and 2019 world cruises.
Fares start at $62,000
'With larger cruise lines significantly reducing their capacity on world cruises, Silversea is increasingly becoming the prime choice for world cruisers looking for real, in-depth destination experiences,' said Mark Conroy, managing director for the Americas. 'With rates starting at $62,000 per guest, the record number of bookings for the 2020 world cruise demonstrates a growing demand for once-in-a-lifetime, luxury travel experiences.'
