Silversea ups polar options
SILVERSEA Cruises has released an increased polar offering for its summer 2020 season. The program will see the cruise line offer two ships, 10 voyages and 83 destinations in the Arctic, and 11 itineraries and 26 destinations in Antarctica, including East Antarctica and the Ross Sea.
Voyages to New Zealand’s sub-Antarctic islands and Australia’s Macquarie Island will enable guests to view vast colonies of penguins and thousands of seals, while in Canada visits to Churchill will take guests to the “polar bear capital of the world”.
Travellers will also have the chance to visit Hudson Bay in Manitoba, Canada, the home of the world’s largest beluga whale population. The program has concurrent crossings of the Northwest and Northeast Passages, which Silversea said would “unlock unique, life-defining experiences”.
“For discerning travellers who are in search of rare and authentic moments, these new itineraries offer a unique array of carefully curated, life-enriching experiences,” said Adam Armstrong, managing director, Australia and New Zealand, Silversea Cruises.
