Silversea Cruises has revealed details about its 140-day World Cruise setting sail in 2026.

"The Curious and the Sea" will be the ultra-luxury cruise line's most diverse and immersive voyage ever. Guests will embark on Silver Dawn in Fort Lauderdale on January 6, 2026, before sailing to as many as 70 destinations in 37 different countries (the most ever on a Silversea World Cruise) around the globe.

The cruise includes 26 calls that are new for a Silversea World Cruise or unvisited since 2020. The sailing will also feature nine overnights.

An exclusive pre-sale opens to Venetian Society members on June 14, with general sales opening on June 22.

“Calling in more destinations than any voyage in Silversea’s history, our World Cruise 2026, ‘The Curious and the Sea,’ will connect the most enriching experiences across 70 destinations and six continents,” Silversea President and CEO Barbara Muckermann said in a statement. "For this World Cruise, we took inspiration from history’s most pioneering explorers, each of whom has sailed to the end of the earth—driven by curiosity and a thirst for discovery."

"Appealing to the curious traveler within, we are inviting our guests to experience our planet’s beauty with new eyes, while celebrating the rich history of navigation," Muckermann added. "‘The Curious and the Sea’ demonstrates our commitment to unlocking the most immersive travel experiences for our guests, broadening the largest collection of extended voyages in ultra-luxury cruising. We can’t wait to welcome our extended family aboard Silver Dawn for this special sailing.”

Highlights will include a 28-day immersion into French Polynesia and the South Pacific, Silversea's first 21-day semi-circumnavigation of Australia, all-new cultural experiences in Northern Africa and a handful of bespoke and exclusive events including a seafood feast and cultural performances in French Polynesia, snorkeling and dancing on Mystery Island in Vanuatu, a visit to the five-star Tanah Gajah resort in Benoa, Bali and a journey into Alleppey in the backwaters of Cochin, India for a bespoke afternoon of entertainment.
