Silversea concludes only ultra-luxury world cruise of 2022

The epic sailing visited six continents

Silversea Cruises has completed its Tale of Tales World Cruise, billed as the only ultra-luxury world cruise to have operated in 2022. 

The sailing, on Silver Whisper, concluded in Copenhagen on May 22. 

Over 138 days travellers discovered 62 destinations in 30 countries across six continents, journeying from 65° south to 65° north. They visited destinations including Antarctica, Iceland, Turkey, South Africa, South Georgia and the Seychelles.

President and CEO Roberto Martinoli said the line overcome “many challenges” to operate the sailing, but stressed that the itinerary was “mostly unchanged” from the original. 

He added: “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.”

The line has announced that its Controtempo world cruise will set sail in January 2025.

During the 2022 sailing, seven creatives were invited on board to host presentations and meet with guests. Known as ‘Tale Tellers’, they will each contribute a chapter to the Tale of Tales anthology, which, inspired by their experiences, will be gifted to guests as a keepsake. 

The Tale Tellers included Nicholas Crane, former president of the Royal Geographical Society; Pico Iyer, a global essayist, novelist, and travel writer; Monica Hanna, an internationally acclaimed figure in the world of archaeology; and Christina Franco, a pioneering explorer, guide and Polar Race winner.

Guests also enjoyed an overland experience in Turkey and several exclusive events and experiences. 

In March Silversea unveiled details of its plush suites poised to debut on Silver Nova in summer 2023.
