Luxury line Silversea has announced plans for a world cruise to all seven continents — an industry first.
The 140-day voyage on the 382-passenger Silver Whisper will kick off Jan. 6, 2020 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. And include stops at 62 ports in 32 countries. It’ll end May 25, 2020 in Amsterdam.
After leaving Fort Lauderdale, Silver Whisper will head south to the Caribbean, Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina before sailing to Antarctica. From there, the ship will head back north up the coast of Chile before sailing across the Pacific to Easter Island, Pitcain Island and French Polynesia.

The price includes a pre-cruise hotel stay in Fort Lauderdale, business class air to reach the ship, transfers, a $4,000 on-board spending credit per cabin, complimentary laundry service, and free unlimited Internet access.
