We have already had news that Silver Whisper’s 115 day World Voyage is both released and on sale. If you haven’t seen the incredible experience that this offers – click the ship’s name earlier in this sentence to review the incredible 50 ports of call spanning 30 countries. All sorts of additional benefits for those guests taking the entire trip as well. Prices here including return Business Class air start from £37,950 pp……. based upon Vista suite.
Currently only the entire World Voyage is on sale, but it is anticipated, that sometime over the course of the next few weeks, segments will be on sale as well.
Over and above this amazing trip, Silversea Cruises have just announced the following:-
Silver Shadow – Jan 2015 – 62 day Circle South America trip, embarking/disembarking in Fort Lauderdale – four sequential voyages (3501/2/3/4). Vista suites based upon double occupancy cruise only starting from £15,210 pp

Silversea Cruises are also rolling out some lovely additional benefits/enhancements if you opt to take either of these two Grand Voyages in their entirety as mentioned above.
Moving on – let’s consider the exciting fact that Oceania Cruise’s ex Renaissance ship, Insignia is undertaking the shipping line’s FIRST EVER World Voyage – a massive 180 days in length – covering an incredible 89 ports of call over 44 countries (5 continents). This trip will be both embarking and disembarking in Miami, commencing 10 Jan 2015. Early booking fares available up to 17th September 2013 and prices, subject to availability, starting from £25,849 pp based upon double occupancy for an inside stateroom. This rate includes economy return flights and pre-paid gratuities along with a selection of other benefits. This year Oceania Cruises have celebrated their 10 year Anniversary. I was fortunate enough to have been on the invitation list for the Gala Luncheon on board Marina a few weeks ago. If culinary delights are one of the reasons you cruise – Oceania will not disappoint.
One of my favourite shipping lines – Crystal Cruises – are always one of the first to release their schedules/dates and I can advise that they already have itineraries out for 2015 into Spring of 2016! Small wonder I never know what year I am in……… They are offering early booking savings up to the end of August 2013. Crystal Serenity will be operating their 25th Anniversary World Voyage 2015 – round trip Miami – departing 15 JAN 2015. This voyage will be 108 days in duration – visiting 14 countries and taking in 44 incredible ports of call. There are financial benefits to both past guests and ‘new to Crystal’ guests, if commitment/booking is made by 30AUG2013. There are, as you would expect, all sorts of other perks/benefits to full World Cruise guests. Believe it or believe it not – all the initial stateroom categories are already SOLD OUT! The first current grade available on a guarantee basis, is balcony stateroom A2 starting from £35,401 pp cruise only.
RSSC haven’t yet released any information on their World/Grand voyages for 2015 – but if you are interested in any of their itineraries – the link was clickable at the beginning of this paragraph. They do offer a large selection of longer cruises in their calendar year on year.
On any of these ultra-long Grand or World Voyages – good luck with the average weight gain of 1lb a day ! Serious amount of discipline could well be involved.
Prices are of course, strictly subject to change/availability and do not include any past guest entitlements you may have. Longer voyages can be generally be purchased in segments too – just ask.
There are of course voyages that are in existence for 2013/2014 as well, details of which can be found on any of the individual websites. It goes without saying of course, though I will anyway – if you are interested in the prospect of any of these or are considering any other travel arrangements, you only have to let me know.
Do hope you enjoyed today’s offering. Catch you next time…….
