Silversea has just announced a new, unprecedented collection of Grand Voyages, including three extraordinary Grand Expeditions, for late 2020 and 2021.

These immersive journeys combine Silversea’s signature brand of luxury while sailing aboard the line’s intimate, all-suite ships with extraordinary, in-depth encounters that bring travelers up-close to their destination’s authentic beauty.

From the Arctic and Antarctica, to Australia, South America, the Caribbean and Mediterranean, Silversea’s Grand Voyages collection offers incredible, firsthand encounters from out of some the world’s most iconic ports, and whisks travelers away on life-altering expeditions to exotic destinations and to off-the-beaten-path locales.

“Our Grand Voyages perfectly exemplify our commitment to traveling deeper to discover the world’s authentic beauty,” said Barbara Muckermann, Silversea’s Chief Marketing Officer. “You can sail completely around Australia for 51 days, cross the Arctic Circle and the ancient monuments of Egypt on a 64-day voyage, or step foot onto the frozen continent of Antarctica and swim in the tropical waters of Bora Bora on the same 52-day voyage. Each journey will unlock amazing experiences, events and destinations, and deliver them to guests in superlative comfort.”

To say there’s a surprise around every glacier and ice floe in Antarctica is an understatement. Even if a curious seal isn’t bobbing its head out of the water, this destination never ceases to amaze. Download our travel guide and learn more:
