La Grande Bellezza World Cruise with Silversea
Los Angeles to Rome 6 January – 8 May 2018
121 days – 60 Ports – 21 Countries – 5 Continents
In 121 days, you’ll sail to Hawaii and the South Pacific, spend a month Down Under and visit Bali, Borneo, and five major Asian capitals. Seas of ancient trade beckon. Spectacles quicken the pulse: leopards in Sri Lanka and grand canyons in Oman, Aegean jewels and Pharoanic antiquity. Then to Sicily, Sorento and the eternal city – Rome. But it’s not just where you go, the difference is what you do when you arrive. Silversea organises an ‘in depth’ experience, offering you a deeper dimension of discovery, arranging encounter’s you’d never have on a larger ship, or even tours custom-tailored just for you. And with more late and overnight stays that ever before, you’ll have ample time to see, feel and taste the best the region has to offer. Silver Whisper can cruise along narrow waterways where others cannot go. She can sail directly into Saigon and Bangkok, for example, while other ships must anchor hours away. Yet with the highest space ratio at sea and butler service for every suite, you’ll discover a surprising array of activities: lectures, wine tastings and food demonstrations, workouts with a personal trainer and soothing treatments in the Spa. Your on-board experience is an extravagance of personalised luxury.
HAWAII & THE SOUTH PACIFIC

Set sail for Nirvana across the vast Pacific to Hawaii, where orchids grow wild, and the blue lagoons and jagged jade peaks of he Society islands, green sirens of the South Pacific. Accept the challenge of a Cook Island warrior. Visit the royal Kingdom of Tonga, and spend a week circling New Zealand with its ‘Lord of the Rings’ landscape and alpine splendour.

A swashbuckling Outback adventure, Aboriginal Rock Art, jumping crocodiles – all this is available on the 18-day voyage along the east coast.

Romblon is a Philippine gem, and Java is home to the wondrous Buddhas of Borobudur.
