Silversea Cruises is celebrating the historic rendezvous of two of its ultra-luxury vessels Silver Muse and Silver Whisper in Sydney Harbour on Saturday.

It marks the first time in 20 years that two of its ships have met in the harbour city.

The sight was reminiscent of the arrival of sister ships Silver Cloud and Silver Wind in Sydney in February 1999, which was the last time that two ships from the fleet visited simultaneously.

The weekend’s dual arrival follows the recent maiden arrival of Silversea’s iconic flagship, Silver Muse, into Australian waters in December 2018.

Meanwhile, the 388-guest Silver Whisper returns to Sydney as part of its annual World Cruise and arrives this year fresh from an extensive dry-dock.

The two vessels met at either side of Fort Denison inside Sydney Harbour at 7am and then sailed past the Opera House and under the Harbour Bridge to dock, bow-to-bow, at the White Bay Cruise Terminal.

With two ships currently deployed in the region and a third, Silver Discoverer, soon to commence her annual Kimberley cruising season, Silversea is strengthening its commitment to the local market.

“We are absolutely committed to the growth of the Australia & New Zealand market, which we expect to soon become our second biggest market globally.”

Adam Armstrong, Managing Director – Australia and New Zealand, Silversea Cruises

“The deployment of three of our vessels here demonstrates our dedication to this region, led by Silver Muse which will be based here every summer, with an expanded 4-month season in 2019/20.”
