Silversea has launched its “largest ever” Grand Voyage collection for 2024. The cruise line said it is responding to strong demand for extended sailings that take travellers deeper into a given region.
Silversea offers travellers the most broad-ranging selection of extended voyages in ultra-luxury cruising.
The cruise line said its Grand Voyages are an essential product for the company and its guests, offering travellers an in-depth exploration of a specific region.
Every aspect of Silversea’s Grand Voyages is “considered and tailored to create an unforgettable and meaningful experience for guests.”
This includes diverse itineraries to the tastes of the dishes on board, the special events, and the commemorative gifts.
Silversea’s two new Grand Voyages for 2024 include:
The Grand Voyage Mediterranean 2024 – 34 destinations, 13 countries, 43 days.
