Silversea Bookings for Legends of Cruising World Cruise 2020 Increase

Since opening bookings last month for the Legends of Cruising World Cruise 2020, Silversea has seen a marked increase in early bookings when compared to the launch of previous Silversea World Cruises in the past five years.

With a record response rate from existing Silversea customers and first-time cruisers, the World Cruise 2020 has topped the charts, attracting customers with its exceptional itinerary, with Silver Whisper being the first ship to visit all seven continents on a 140-day world cruise. In addition, the top Owner’s Suites, worth £380,000 per booking, sold out immediately, further demonstrating a robust level of consumer confidence in the luxury cruising market.

Visiting 62 ports in 32 countries, the World Cruise 2020 is making history by including the expedition experiences of Antarctica in the itinerary. In addition, there will be 40 new destinations from the 2018 and 2019 Silversea itineraries, further consolidating Silversea as a trailblazer for innovation in the luxury cruising industry.

A first in the history of cruising, Silversea’s World Cruise 2020 will pass through both the Northern and Southern Fjords, and also include the spectacular landscape of Antarctica, no doubt capturing the imagination of consumers.

“With larger cruise lines significantly reducing their capacity on world cruises – Silversea is increasingly becoming the prime choice for world cruisers looking for real in-depth destination experiences,” said Peter Shanks, Managing Director UK & Ireland, Silversea. “With rates starting at £49,000, the record number of bookings for the 2020 World Cruise demonstrates a growing demand for once in a lifetime, luxury travel experiences.”

Up to 382 passengers are set to embark Silver Whisper for the World Cruise 2020 and the ship will be the most intimate within the ultra-luxury segment to ever undertake a world cruise and will offer guests an unprecedented selection of onboard events, a tailor-made collection of excursions, and bespoke overland programmes.

Suites on the World Cruise 2020 are available from £49,000 per person. Early bookers will benefit from a range of offerings, including US$2,000 Ship Board Credit, Return Business Class Air, valet service between home and ship, unlimited wi-fi and laundry services.
