Silver Shadow sailed from Sydney yesterday, marking the first time a Silversea World Cruise has originated in the Southern Hemisphere.
The ultra-luxury ship will host guests for the 139-day arts-inspired voyage, sailing from the South Seas to the Amazon Rainforest and beyond, calling in 66 destinations in 34 countries across five continents.
Guests travelling aboard the World Cruise 2023 departed Sydney on January 10 and will arrive in Fort Lauderdale on May 28. The itinerary comprises a mix of destinations – from Papua New Guinea, Mauritius, Réunion Island, and Cape Verde, to Tasmania, New Zealand, Myanmar, and South Africa. The ship will also sail down the Amazon River, the first time ever for a Silversea World Cruise.
In another first in the history of Silversea, guests experienced a seamless World Cruise journey with private executive transfers to their local airport (and from, upon their return). They received private assistance and access to designated airline lounges, and enjoyed a superior flight experience from select gateways in the US and the UK to Sydney, Australia.
Travelling in business class where they had a dedicated cabin, dined on the freshest seasonal ingredients and experienced fine Australian hospitality in-flight, upon arrival in Sydney, they were greeted with VIP arrival assistance, private executive transfers, priority embarkation, and unpacking assistance by Silver Shadow‘s butlers.
