- TWO NEW GRAND VOYAGES: MEDITERRANEAN AND THE NORTH ATLANTIC & NORTHERN EUROPE
Two new Grand Voyages for 2025 will enable travelers to journey deeper into the Mediterranean and the North Atlantic & Northern Europe on extended voyages. Both itineraries will incorporate calls to iconic cities and off-the-beaten-path destinations — many of which are rarely visited and accessible only to smaller ships.
- GRAND MEDITERRANEAN 2025:
Silver Spirit® will undertake the Grand Mediterranean 2025, departing Fusina (Venice) on September 18 and arriving in Lisbon on November 11. Over 54 days, Silversea’s guests will discover the Mediterranean’s most iconic cities – such as Venice, Athens, Barcelona, Dubrovnik, and Naples – with in-depth explorations of the Adriatic; the Greek Isles; and various other highlight regions in the Eastern, Southern, and Western Mediterranean. A series of lesser-visited gems, such as Palamos in Spain and Syros in Greece, feature among 44 destinations in 12 countries. Overnight calls in Istanbul, Naples, Livorno (Tuscany), and Malaga, as well as 12 late departures, enable travelers to spend longer in port and form meaningful connections with local cultures. Guests can choose from authentic experiences that include engaging with the local culinary culture in Dubrovnik through an immersive farm-to-table dining experience at an historic village estate that has produced wine, brandy, and olive oil for generations.
- GRAND NORTH ATLANTIC & NORTHERN EUROPE 2025:
Departing from New York on June 11, Silver Shadow® will embark on the 83-day Grand North Atlantic & Northern Europe 2025, offering guests an immersive exploration of 55 destinations and 16 countries in the North Atlantic and Northern Europe, which, steeped in history, capture the essence of ancient Viking life. From New York, guests will journey through Eastern Canada to the British Isles, arriving in the Baltic Sea, the Norwegian Fjords, and Iceland at the best time of year, admiring many of the planet’s most striking natural wonders. From Patreksfjordur in Iceland, for example, travelers can journey to witness Dynjandi waterfall and Vatnajokull, Europe’s largest glacier. Traveling aboard one of the most intimate ships sailing in the region, guests will also enjoy access to smaller destinations, such as Geiranger and Flåm.
- INCREASED OFFERING IN THE MEDITERRANEAN: 84 VOYAGES ON SIX SHIPS
Diversifying and expanding its range of experiences in the region, Silversea has increased its presence in the Mediterranean for summer 2025, offering 84 voyage aboard six ships. A set of signature voyages aboard the intimate Silver Whisper® provides access to some of the smallest ports in the region, such as Milos, Amorgos, Pula, Vlore, and Seville. Brand new Silver Spirit and Silver Whisper itineraries take guests off the beaten path in the Greek Isles, complementing a sequence of immersive sailings aboard Silver Muse®, which take in some of the country’s most iconic destinations. The fleet’s newest addition, Silver Ray℠, will call in such famed destinations as Monaco, Syracuse, and Palma de Mallorca, delivering enriching culinary experiences through Silversea’s S.A.L.T. program. In Portofino, travelers will sample authentic cooking with tasting experiences at the scenic eco farm, La Portofinese. Brand new expeditions aboard Silver Wind® to the most far-flung shores of the Atlantic Isles and Northern Africa add yet another dimension to Silversea’s Mediterranean sailings.
- ENHANCED ITINERARIES IN THE GALAPAGOS: 26 VOYAGES ABOARD SILVER ORIGIN
Utilizing its more than 10 years of experience in the region, Silversea has enhanced its offering in the Galapagos Islands aboard Silver Origin®, introducing enriched itineraries for deeper immersion and two new destinations.
- The North Central Itinerary: Silver Origin’s North Central itinerary will feature more time on the islands of Isabela and Fernandina in the summer 2025 season, and a new destination – Isla Lobos, San Cristobal – which offers opportunities for snorkeling with sea lions, paddle-boarding, and birding.
- The Western Itinerary: in summer 2025, Silver Origin’s Western itinerary will include a call in Bahia Bowditch, a brand new destination for Silversea, in which guests can relax on a pristine, white-sanded beach and explore coastal trails to lagoons.
Inspired by the cruise line’s S.A.L.T. culinary program, guests on both Galapagos itineraries will be able to dine on authentic, local cuisine inside a lava tunnel in Santa Cruz. Travelers will also have more opportunities to dive and fish with local operators.
- 14 VOYAGES TO THE ARCTIC & GREENLAND, INCLUDING SILVER ENDEAVOUR’S FIRST NORTHWEST PASSAGE CROSSING
Silversea has developed a deep and intimate knowledge of the Arctic and Greenland over many years, enabling unparalleled access to the regions’ most remote destinations. The cruise line has developed strong partnerships with local communities — in Coral Harbour, Qaqortoq, and Sisimut, for example — to offer travelers an authentic deep-dive into the local way of life. From May to August 2025, Silver Endeavour℠ and Silver Wind will undertake 14 voyages to rarely visited destinations, providing the chance to experience Inuit cultures, spot rare wildlife, and learn about some of the planet’s most remote environments through the enrichments of Silversea’s leading expedition experts. Silver Endeavour’s first crossing of the Northwest Passage is another highlight of the 2025 Arctic season, during which travelers will journey in the footsteps of many famous explorers over 24 days. With seamless return journeys, the new voyages include more opportunities to explore Svalbard at the best time of year, with nine itineraries ranging from seven to 18 days undertaken by two ships.
