The Silversea Cruises fleet will visit a record 800-plus
destinations in 2017 as it grows by one with the addition in the spring of its
ninth ship, Silver Muse.
Itineraries for the Silver Muse have not been announced.
Silversea, which opened bookings for 2017 on its existing
eight ships, said the year will feature initial ports of call in Sassnitz,
Germany; Punta Cana, Dominican Republic; Galway, Ireland; and Geraldton,
Silversea visits so many ports partly because its expedition
fleet of small vessels visit hard-to-reach ports such as Nosy Kumba in
Madagascar. The expedition fleet will expand to four in November 2017 when the Silver
Cloud is transferred from luxury to expedition service.
The Silver Cloud will start its expedition campaign with a
series of 10- to 19-night voyages in November and December to Antarctica.
