This amazing collection also includes Silver Cloud’s early 2020 Expeditions to Antarctica. Highlighting the schedule are dozens of fascinating new destinations, including Milos, Greece; Corsica’s L’Ile Rousse and St. Florent; Porto Santo Stefano, Italy; St. Mary’s (Isles of Scilly), U.K.; Rudyerd Bay (Misty Fjords), Alaska; Alert Bay (Cormorant Island), British Columbia; and Little Bay, Montserrat.
“Our 2019 Summer Collection is perfectly tailored to inquisitive travelers seeking inspirational journeys that enrich the mind and soul,” said Roberto Martinoli, Silversea’s CEO. “With a fleet of nine ships, we’re able to offer a wealth of choices, from marquee cities to far-flung destinations, which travelers can explore on port-intensive getaways as short as five days, or longer journeys, such as our 47-day Grand Mediterranean Voyage.”
Silver Muse’s Inaugural Season in Alaska: For the first time since her debut in 2017, Silver Muse will spend the summer discovering the enchanting natural wonders of Alaska on 15 mostly seven-day voyages between Seward and Vancouver.
