Silver Whisper will sail from Los Angeles on 5 January 2013, on the ultimate 115 day world cruise, following the sun, crossing the equator four times and visiting 52 destinations in 28 countries, before arriving in Ft. Lauderdale on 1 May 2013.

With just 382 guests, Silver Whisper is small enough to sail along secluded waterways or into small harbours, where larger ships cannot venture. The world cruise offers plenty of sea days for experienced cruisers.

The full 115 day world cruise is priced from AU$47,925 per person double occupancy. Destinations include French Polynesia, New Zealand, Australia, Asia, India, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Mauritius, Madagascar and Mozambique in the Indian Ocean. Silver Whisper will offer extensive cruising around South African harbours and calls at some fascinating ports along the West African coast, before heading for Central America, the Caribbean and Ft. Lauderdale.

The fare is inclusive of all suite accommodation with personal butler service, all fine dining with wines, Champagne and soft drinks complimentary, 24 hour room service and all gratuities. Generous US$3500 world cruise on board spending credits per double occupancy/suite will cover those little extras like spa treatments and shore excursions.

Full world cruise guests enjoy private car airport/ship/airport transfers, gala Bon Voyage reception dinner and overnight accommodation at The Peninsula Beverly Hills prior to boarding and complimentary laundry service.  They will also be invited to an exclusive dinner at the stylish China Club in Singapore and a Night in the Winelands in Cape Town, South Africa which includes a wine tasting, a gala dinner and overnight accommodation at one of the Winelands finest resort hotels.

In addition, all guests will be treated to complimentary Dinner in the Desert Experience amongst the dunes in Walvis Bay, Namibia.
