Silversea Announces New, Exotic Ports for 2007

January 6, 2006

Silversea is answering the call for more exotic travel with the introduction of 29 new ports for 2007. This is just one of a series of ambitious moves by Silversea to expand its worldwide reach -- just three months ago, the luxury line revealed plans for its first-ever world cruise, also scheduled for 2007.

So what's new for Silversea in 2007 destination-wise?

The Mediterranean: There will be inaugural calls in France at Antibes, Cassis, Porquerolles and Cherbourg. Other fresh stops for the line include Vigo (Spain), Sibenik (Croatia), Batumi (Georgia) and Latakia (Syria).

Northern Europe: Oye (Norway), Vaasa (Finland), Lulea and Ornskoldsvik (Sweden), Oban (Scotland), and Plymouth (England) will appear on itineraries.

The Indian Ocean and Arabian Peninsula: Inaugural visits include Dzaoudzi (Mayotte), Tulear (Madagascar), Curieuse (Seychelles) and Al Manamah (Bahrain).

The Far East: Pare Pare (Indonesia) and Guangzhou (China) will debut.

The Caribbean and the Azores: A visit to the Caribbean island of Marie Galante, Guadeloupe and the island of La Horta in the Azores.

Silversea is also returning to destinations that have been "off limits" for the last few years; Silversea will once again call at Haifa and Ashdod in Israel with Silver Whisper, and Silver Wind will return to Lebanon, Syria and Libya.
