Silversea Cruises shattered its booking records with the newly released 2023 world cruise.

Following the most successful pre-sale in the line’s history, the 139-day voyage fully sold out on the day of its general opening.

Southern Hemisphere focus

‘South Side Story – All the World’s a Stage’ focuses on the Southern Hemisphere, from the South Seas to the Amazon rain forest and beyond, calling at 66 destinations in 34 countries across five continents.

‘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,’ Silversea President and CEO Roberto Martinoli said. ‘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.’

The cruise is scheduled to depart Sydney on Jan. 10, 2023, and arrive in Fort Lauderdale on May 28.
