The cruise combines the luxury of sailing aboard an intimate, elegant ship with the excitement of discovering fascinating destinations. Highlights include a crossing of the Panama Canal, cruising Chile’s majestic fjords, a three-day stopover in Rio de Janeiro in time for Carnival, plus overnight calls in Valparaiso, Punta Arenas, Buenos Aires, and Manaus, nestled in the heart of the Amazon.

“Grand Voyage 2018 is perfectly tailored to travellers who have the time and passion to indulge in travel on a grand scale. It combines adventure and immersive cultural experiences with leisurely days wrapped in the exquisite luxury and impeccable service of our beautiful new Silver Muse,” said Lisa McAuley, Managing Director UK & Ireland, Silversea.

An onboard enrichment programme features distinguished destination experts, academics, journalists, diplomats and other specialists. Local entertainment, guest chefs, cooking demonstrations, wine tastings, and regional specialities - many featured poolside at the new Chef’s Table interactive experience - will provide further immersion in each destination.

Through Silversea’s association with Slow Food Italy, a selection of Ark of Taste products, such as Ecuador’s nacional cacao, Peru’s native potatoes, Chile’s Merkén chilli peppers, and sugarcane products from Santa Rita, Brazil, will be sourced locally by Silversea chefs to introduce guests to the remarkable flavours of these cultural treasures, which are being catalogued by the Ark of Taste to help ensure their preservation.
