Silversea Cruises has shattered its bookings records with its new arts-inspired World Cruise 2023 ‘South Side Story – All the World’s a Stage’.

Following the most successful pre-sale in the cruise line’s history, the 139-day voyage fully sold out on the day of its general opening; proving that the demand for cruising in a post-COVID travel world is ‘unprecedented.’

South Side Story

Cape Town, South Africa.

The immersive voyage will take guests deep into the Southern Hemisphere, sailing from the South Seas to the Amazon Rainforest and beyond, calling in 66 destinations in 34 countries across five continents.

As it charts a course through captivating landscapes, each segment will unlock the history, culture and spirit of the people and places visited. Exclusive World Cruise events will open the doors to the sights, tastes and rhythms of local life, and shine a light on regional music, art, theatre, and dance traditions with authentic performances.

Recently previewed through Silversea’s largest-ever creative production, this world journey will provide an epic stage for discovery, with each guest enjoying the role of both spectator and storyteller.

“We are delighted to have seen unprecedented demand for our World Cruise 2023, South Side Story, which sold out within hours of its general opening,” says Roberto Martinoli, Silversea’s President & CEO. 

“The most successful World Cruise launch in the history of our cruise line, this triumph pays testament to the strong demand we are seeing in the market, particularly from affluent, sophisticated travelers.
