After a year of being stuck inside, it makes sense travelers would want to explore as much of the world as possible. Well, Silversea Cruises is ready to help. The luxe sailing company just announced a set of five new Grand Voyages for 2022-2023, one of which takes you to 72 destinations in 22 countries across Europe.
Connecting the Mediterranean Grand Voyage and the Northern Europe Grand Voyage, the itinerary marks Silversea’s first-ever European Grand Voyage. Setting sail on March 30, 2022, from Piraeus (Athens), passengers hit the seas for a three-month journey aboard Silver Moon. You’ll spend the night in stunning spots like Istanbul, Sorrento, Bordeaux, and Saint Petersburg, before arriving at the final destination--Stockholm--on June 28. Other stops include Albania, Montenegro, Croatia, Italy, and more.
When not exploring the ports of call, passengers can enjoy spacious suite accommodations, eight dining options, a bar, event space, casino, spa, gym, library, pool, and a theater. Plus, all of the Grand Voyages include air travel, an excursion per port per day, onboard spending credit, free WiFi, entertainment, laundry service, and more.
While the European Grand Voyage is certainly bucket list-worthy, the other Grand Voyage options are equally impressive. The all-new Mediterranean Grand Voyage visits 33 destinations in 12 countries, including Greece, Turkey, Albania, Montenegro, Croatia, Italy, Slovenia, Malta, France, and Monaco. And a new South America Grand Voyage stops at 39 destinations in 23 countries, ultimately circumnavigating South America. You’ll even get to attend a private party at Valparaiso’s Casas del Bosque Winery and stroll on the beach in St. Barts. And the immersive Pacific Grand Voyage travels through eight countries, including Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, Singapore, Vietnam, China, and Japan.
As far as safety goes, all embarking crew and guests must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Additional health and safety procedures will continue to be in place.
