For clients who believe the cuisine of a destination is just as important as its landmarks and monuments, Silversea is launching a series of culinary- and wine-themed sailings—Enriched Voyages—in 2018 and 2019.
On these Enriched Voyages, guests can expect an itinerary that combines the sights and sounds of cities around the world with on board cooking events and demonstrations complemented by specially curated menus, wine tastings and more. The Enriched Voyages are categorized into three series: The Asian Collection, Culinary Voyages, and Wine Voyages.
The Asian Collection, which was developed in partnership with The Peninsula Hotels, features five sailings, each with a different itinerary, visiting such cities as Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City, Tokyo, Shanghai, Hiroshima, Osaka, Kagoshima, Beijing, and others. On each cruise, guests will indulge in immersive experiences, hosted by guest chefs from The Peninsula Hotels, which highlight regional specialties. Itineraries range from 11 to 16 days and depart in April and October 2018, as well as March and April 2019. Pricing for these sailings start at $6,100 pp. For more information, visit silversea.com/asian-collection.
Silversea offers over a dozen Culinary Voyages, which feature guided market-to-plate excursions, special menus, cooking demonstrations, and more. Examples of these itineraries include Silver Muse’s 25-day, ocean and Amazon River voyage from Rio de Janeiro to Fort Lauderdale; Silver Wind’s roundtrip voyage to Norway’s North Cape from London; Silver Cloud’s 16-day South American expedition from Lima to Punta Arenas; and Silver Shadow’s 15-day African and Indian Ocean voyage from Dubai to Athens.

For the wine lovers on your list, the Silversea portfolio includes four Wine Voyages, featuring wines chosen by world-class vintners and Silversea’s Wine Ambassador. Guests will also have the opportunity to participate in special tastings and private tours of renowned vineyards and wineries. Silver Spirit will depart on Jan. 15, 2018 for an 18-day Africa and Indian Ocean itinerary sailing from Cape Town to Mahe, while Silver Whisper will depart on the remaining three itineraries, including a 16-day voyage from Aukland to Sydney scheduled to depart on Feb. 4, 2018, and a transatlantic ocean voyage from Lisbon to Fort Lauderdale departing on Oct. 18, 2018. The ship’s final Wine Voyage for the season will be a 14-day Northern Europe itinerary from London to Barcelona departing on May 19, 2019. For more information, visit silversea.com/wine-voyages.
