Silversea Cruises has announced the richest voyage ever for its 2027 world cruise, The Three Oceans. Silver Dawn is set to depart Los Angeles on January 8 and arrive in Copenhagen on June 7, 2027. The voyage will visit 80 destinations — more than any sailing in the brand’s history — in 35 countries on five continents. 20 calls will be new for a Silversea world cruise.

The 149-day voyage will unlock the unique cultures, histories, and ideas of the Pacific, Indian, and Atlantic oceans, connecting over 50 UNESCO World Heritage Sites and offer more port time than any other world cruise. A series of events, offering exclusive access to tailor-made experiences, will enhance the sailing for guests.

The Pacific, Indian, and Atlantic oceans represent not only the geographic route for the sailing, but also the three chapters in the world cruise story.

An Ocean of Time: The Pacific Ocean

Slowing down to appreciate the art of traveling and the beauty of Hawaii and French Polynesia, guests will journey through the Pacific Ocean, from LA to Brisbane, over the course of 46 days. Standout destinations will include Hilo, Kahului, and Honolulu in Hawaii; Nuku Hiva; Rangiroa; Moorea; Bora Bora; Apia; Lautoka; Champagne Beach; Lifou; Airlie Beach in the Whitsundays; Darwin; and Brisbane.

As well as having the opportunity to visit the UNESCO-listed Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, guests will enjoy a bespoke world cruise event on the archipelago honoring ancient Polynesian seafarers at a sunset ho’olaule’a in Honolulu with traditional fare, tropical libations, and a night of stargazing.

An Ocean of Life: The Indian Ocean

Between Brisbane and Cape Town, guests will reconnect with nature, learn about ancient cultures, and witness iconic wildlife. An immersion into the Indian Ocean will center upon a seven-day deep dive of South Africa, inspired by Silversea’s extensive scouting in the region. Guests will be able to take part in safari experiences to spot the Big Five in some of the planet’s most spectacular landscapes. Highlights of this chapter include Bali, Semarang, Singapore, Colombo, the Maldives, Seychelles, Reunion, South Africa, and more.

UNESCO highlights of this segment include a visit to the Great Barrier Reef and a chance to explore the Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve on the island of Praslin, Seychelles. An included two-night overland experience from Durban to Port Elizabeth will enable guests to journey deeper ashore into the heart of southern Africa, immersing them into one of the seven natural wonders of the world: Victoria Falls. Guests will arrive by air to witness the iconic falls, and also enjoy a private sunset river cruise.

An Ocean of Discovery: The Atlantic Ocean

The world cruise will enable guests to follow the footprints of humanity’s evolution between Cape Town and Copenhagen, exploring the region’s dramatic landscapes and ancient secrets. From the fjords of Norway to the remote islands of the UK, the maritime history of Northern Ireland, and the cities of northern Europe, the advancement of civilization is open to interpretation in each of the Atlantic Ocean’s attractions.

Departing Cape town before venturing along the west coast of Africa, Silver Dawn will visit Namibia, Angola, Ghana, and Gambia, before arriving in Dakar. Praia, Arrecife, Agadir, Casablanca, and more, precede guests’ arrival in Lisbon. Various destinations throughout the Western Mediterranean and the United Kingdom will lead to North Europe.

Guests will enjoy a night of musical performance at St. Anne’s Cathedral in Belfast with local gastronomy and various cultural celebrations in a beautiful setting.

Longer Times in Port

Each stay in port has been chosen to optimize the experience in each destination. As well as 11 overnights in places such as Honolulu, Cairns, Colombo, Cape Town, Bordeaux, and more, Silver Dawn will spend longer in port than any other world cruise. This will enable greater access to experiences including visiting the ancient city of Kandy, the Yala National Park, and game drives from Port Elizabeth.

Booking the World Cruise

An exclusive pre-sale for The Three Oceans World Cruise 2027 will open to all Venetian Society members on June 20th. General sales will open on June 27, 2024.
