If you’d like for me to do some reconnaissance and choose your suite for the world cruise you’ll be doing on Silver Spirit in 2011, just post a comment below. Remember, I’ll be on board December 20 for a two-night sailing, and I’m happy to “sneak a peek into your suite.”  (Doesn’t seem fair: I get two nights on board, you get 119 days on your grand voyage around the world.)

Well, even if you’re not doing Silver Spirit’s very first world cruise, you can at least dream. Themed “Spirit of Discovery,” the 119-day journey begins in Los Angeles on January 19, when Silver Spirit is set to welcome no more than 540 privileged guests who will explore 60 destinations in 25 countries — with 11 overnight port visits — before concluding in Southampton on May 19.

Along the way, Silver Spirit will take in the tranquillity of French Polynesia, Australia’s untamed landscapes, the unique customs and cultures of Asia, ancient Egyptian wonders and timeless Mediterranean hideaways spanning from Italy and Monaco to Spain and Portugal.

To offer guests aboard this far-reaching voyage an opportunity to gain a closer look at the regions they visit, Silversea is hosting four complimentary World Cruise Events for guests sailing the full itinerary.

These exclusive, custom-designed events include the chance to . . .

  • explore the history and sample some of Australia’s premier wines at the original Penfolds winery, Magill Estate, and the National Wine Center in Adelaide
  • savor a Thai-themed gala dinner, staying overnight in the private Krungthep Wing of the five-star Shangri-La Hotel in Bangkok
  • experience the exuberance of a traditional souk in Dubai, enjoying a festive dinner set amid the dunes of the Arabian desert as the sun sets
  • and attend a private opening of Barcelona’s renowned Picasso Museum, with plenty of time to explore its treasures at a leisurely pace, without the usual crowds.

Guests aboard Inaugural World Cruise 2011 will enjoy spacious, ocean-view accommodations, sumptuous gourmet cuisine served in six dining venues, the personalized service of a butler assigned to every suite, and Silversea’s generous selection of all-inclusive shipboard amenities, including complimentary beverages, wines and spirits served throughout the ship, 24-hour room service, stocked in-suite beverage cabinet and all gratuities.

In addition to the four complimentary World Cruise Events ashore and a 5% Extended Voyage Savings, the following complimentary amenities will also be available to guests who book the full 119-day cruise:

  • an overnight stay on January 19 on board Silver Spirit, including a Bon Voyage Gala cocktail reception and dinner
