Silversea Luxury Cruises Announces 2016 Voyages in 385 Destinations

Silversea Luxury Cruises Announces 2016 Voyages in 385 Destinations

Though more than a year away, Silversea Cruises' 2016 voyages are already slated to take place in 385 locations and will span across 177 voyages, and 19 of their port calls will be completely new to the cruiseline. These new additions to the luxury ocean-faring brand include stops in Asia, Europe and North America including Shimizu, Japan; Ullapool, Scotland; Kalmar, Sweden; and Summerside, Canada.

Of the planned cruises in 2016, a few stand out above the rest. The 115-day voyage called Venetian World Cruise covers 31 countries and 51 destinations in total. Starting in Fort Lauderdale, FL, on January 5, travelers will visit destination such as Tahiti, Bora Bora, New Zealand, Hong Kong and many more. The South Africa trips will take place aboard the vessel Silver Cloud in February. These 10-day excursions will offer port visits to Durban and Maputo among others and a night's stay at Richards Bay.

For those who like to embrace adventure over cozy respite, Silversea's 2016 Expedition Cruises look like they're going to be an absolute blast. The three ships: Silver Explorer, Silver Galapagos and Silver Discoverer, will visit in excess of 500 locations spread over 95 cruises. These notable trips will include visits to wondrous lands spread across all continents, even Antarctica. Each of the expeditions offer somewhat themed trips that range from cold and daring to warm and exotic.

The large selection of destinations, as well as a laundry list of things to do while in each country, has piqued our interest for 2016 vacations. If we had to choose one trip, though, we'd probably go with the Silver Discoverer's 15-day expedition that starts in Phuket, visits the Maldives, India, Myanmar and Sri Lanka, and ends in Male. See their full list of destinations on their website.


Inside Silversea's New 2015 and 2016 Culinary and Wine Voyages

Silversea has announced 26 sailings with either a culinary or wine focus over the course of 2015 and 2016.

With the only "L'École des Chefs by Relais & Châteaux" cooking school at sea, Silversea offers a special culinary curriculum, including hands-on instruction and events. The program, which is free of charge, is hosted by culinary trainer David Bilsland, a former instructor at the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu culinary school in London.

Highlights include specialized workshops covering an array of topics from basic knife skills and kitchen terminology to sauces and baking cooking demonstrations with wine pairings and interactive Q&A sessions cooking competitions between Chef Bilsland and the ship's own culinary team a "Lunch and Learn" event offering small groups of guests a chance to sample a meal of specially prepared dishes and "Take It Home" recipes meant to give guests an edge when entertaining at home.

Also offered on certain voyages, when the itinerary permits, is a "Market to Plate" experience that provides an escorted tour of a local market to shop for fresh ingredients, followed by a cooking class on board or at an actual Relais & Châteaux property.

On each wine cruise, travelers will have the chance to sample great vintages and learn about the tradition and art of winemaking in special complimentary tastings and lectures conducted by Silversea wine ambassador Lawrence d'Almeida, a wine production expert and former winemaker. Depending on the itinerary, guests may also have the chance to explore celebrated wine regions on optional guided shore excursions. And as on all Silversea sailings, guests will also enjoy a complimentary selection of fine red and white wine pairings with both lunch and dinner.

Select voyages will pair both culinary and wine programs, including two on Silver Spirit: Voyage 5534, a 15-day transatlantic crossing from Barcelona to Fort Lauderdale departing November 9, 2015, and Voyage 5603, a 21-day Brazil-focused sailing from Barbados to Buenos Aires departing January 25, 2016.
