Guests travelling aboard Silversea Cruises’ Silver Whisper arrived in Copenhagen on May 22, marking the conclusion of the Tale of Tales World Cruise—the only ultra-luxury world cruise to have operated in 2022.
Roberto Martinoli, Silversea’s President and CEO, and Barbara Muckermann, Chief Commercial Officer, bid farewell to guests at a special gala dinner at Oslo’s historic Gamle Logen on May 18, celebrating the finale of a hugely successful world cruise.
Over 138 days, travellers discovered 62 destinations in 30 countries across six continents, journeying from 65° south to 65° north—taking in such contrasting destinations as Antarctica and Iceland, Turkey and South Africa, and South Georgia and the Seychelles.
“We are incredibly proud to have welcomed guests aboard Silver Whisper for our Tale of Tales World Cruise 2022, overcoming many challenges to operate the only ultra-luxury world cruises of the year,” said Roberto Martinoli, Silversea’s President and CEO. “We thank our guests for joining us on this great voyage—their support and enthusiasm encouraged us to push ahead. In the company of some of the world’s foremost creative storytellers, our guests enjoyed some of the most authentic experiences available in the planet’s most enriching destinations—on an itinerary that was mostly unchanged from the original. I must thank our phenomenal crew, who are the unsung heroes of the voyage. Overwhelmingly strong demand for our world cruises in 2023 and 2024 meant that they sold out very quickly, but we will soon unveil more details on Silversea’s innovative world cruise for 2025.”
CONTROTEMPO WORLD CRUISE 2025
Following exceptionally strong demand, Silversea’s world cruises for 2023 and 2024 are fully booked, and the cruise line will soon share details on its global sailing for 2025.
Introduced in brief by Barbara Muckermann at the world cruise’s farewell gala dinner, the ‘Controtempo’ world cruise will set sail in January 2025, unlocking new experiences in iconic destinations during unconventional seasons. Silversea’s well-travelled guests will experience familiar destinations in a whole new light, with immersive moments tailored by the cruise line’s destination experts that best showcase each place’s people and stories.
“Our guests have seen much of the world,” says Barbara Muckermann. “But our Controtempo world cruise in 2025 will unlock new ways of travelling even deeper into the planet’s most familiar, iconic destinations, while also journeying off-beat to all-new places, too. Our close-knit community of world-cruising guests is exceptionally passionate about discovering new experiences and Controtempo will enable them to do exactly this. Silversea has long excelled at delivering unique moments in luxury, but the newest iteration of our flagship voyage will raise the bar to all new heights.”
