Silver ShadowSilversea Cruises’ 2023 World Cruise, South Side Story, is set to depart from Sydney today, January 10, marking the first time the leading ultra-luxury and expedition cruise line has set sail from the Southern Hemisphere on a World Cruise.

“All the world’s a stage, and, in this arts-inspired tale, our discerning guests will discover the authentic beauty and heritage of 66 destinations in 34 countries—each with its own unique story to tell—as we journey from Australia to Fort Lauderdale over 139 days,” said Barbara Muckermann, President and CEO, Silversea Cruises.

“Every detail of our guests’ journeys has been carefully considered and enhanced, from the in-flight experience to the airport lounges and entertainment: arriving in Sydney on business-class flights with additional cabin crew to ensure exceptional service, guests will enjoy bespoke pampering with tailored menus, welcome canapés, vintage champagne, and specially embroidered linen. Each of the special events we have planned is entirely bespoke, too.”

The itinerary will present an extraordinary mix of destinations, from the remote wonders of Papua New Guinea, Mauritius, Réunion Island, and Cape Verde to iconic regions and cities—often unlocked on overnight calls (20 in total)—including 10 days spent exploring Tasmania and New Zealand, three days in Myanmar, and a full week in South Africa. And, for the first time on a Silversea World Cruise, Silver Shadow will sail down the Amazon River to unlock the natural and cultural wonders of this legendary region. Travelling through captivating landscapes, each segment will unlock the history, culture, and spirit of the people and places visited.
