59 destinations in 30 countries across four continents in 136 days – are you ready for this? Silversea Cruises has an exclusive pre-sale on its new Controtempo World Cruise 2025 that journeys to iconic and offbeat ports in unconventional seasons with immersive experiences that hero local people and compelling stories.

Silversea Cruises President and CEO Roberto Martinoli said the new Controtempo World Cruise 2025 was designed to feed the high demand for extended voyages and enable experienced travellers to see the world in a new way.

“Controtempo, a musical term that means ‘off-tempo’, will take guests closer to the authentic heartbeat of iconic and off-the-beaten-path destinations – travelling to an unusual rhythm, from East to West, with more time ashore in unconventional seasons,” he said.

“For the first time, we will host our World Cruise aboard our beautiful Silver Dawn – a slightly larger ship with a capacity of 596, which pays testament to the high demand we are seeing for extended voyages.”

The Controtempo World Cruise, departing from Tokyo for New York on 13 January 2025, will incorporate 33 overnight calls, seven exclusive events, three optional overland programs and 19 maiden calls.

Divided into 10 segments, passengers will cruise from Tokyo to Hong Kong, before departing on 27 January to visit Halong Bay, Hue, Da Nang and Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam on the way to Singapore.

The next leg cruises from Singapore to Mumbai with 11 days in India and Sri Lanka as well as port calls to Phuket, Chennai and Trincomalee. Passengers aboard Silver Dawn will then voyage to Instanbul, exploring Jerusalem and Egypt plus an overnight call in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, the gateway to Mecca.

Departing Istanbul on 16 March, cruisers can enjoy an in-depth exploration of the Eastern Mediterranean via Greece, before travelling on from Naples to Lisbon.

The seventh segment sees Silver Dawn sail between Lisbon and Southampton, England in April with calls in Portugal, Spain, France and the UK, including the new Silversea destination of Guernsey.

Sailing on to Stockholm, guests will have overnight calls in Rouen, Hamburg, Copenhagen, Tallinn and Helsinki and be able to explore Paris and Amsterdam before continuing to Reykjavik via Bergen, the Faroe Islands and Oslo.
