Silversea Cruises has opened sales on its World Cruise 2024 named Far East-West, which has been designed by the cruise line’s destination experts in response to strong demand for far-flung destinations.
The 132-day Far East-West World Cruise 2024 will connect the most immersive experiences throughout the Pacific, incorporating two of the world’s extremes—from Alaska in the West, the final frontier of American civilisation, to the Russian Far East’s extreme, remote beauty in the East.
Travelling further than ever, guests will depart San Francisco aboard Silver Shadow on 15 January 2024, before calling in 65 destinations across 14 countries, including 40 new destinations for a Silversea world cruise.
Following calls in the Pacific’s remote islands of Hawaii, Samoa, and Fiji, among others, guests will continue onto Australia and New Zealand for an in-depth exploration of the region. After an extended period in Southeast Asia, with calls in Bali (Benoa), Singapore, Ho Chi Minh City, as well as many lesser-visited gems, guests will enjoy a deep dive into the fascinating cultures of Chinaand Japan.
Subsequent explorations of the Russian Far East and Alaska mark inaugural calls to the regions for a Silversea World Cruise—among 40 new world cruise calls.
With 23 overnight stays, guests will have many opportunities for deeper immersion into iconic destinations. A series of exclusive world cruise events and included overland programmes highlight the voyage, from an Evening on the USS Missouri in Honolulu, Hawaii, to an unforgettable overland to Uluru, the spiritual centre for Australia’s indigenous population, among other remarkable experiences.
Commenting, Barbara Muckermann, Silversea’s Chief Commercial Officer, said: “Our guests have expressed an overwhelming yearning for extended voyages to far-flung destinations and our new world cruise for 2024—Far East-West—expands and diversifies our world cruise offering, which is the largest in the ultra-luxury cruise industry.
