Amber Wilson, Managing Director, Asia-Pacific, Silversea Cruises said:
“Following the launch of Silver Muse in April this year, we are thrilled that she will be making her inaugural visit to Australia in December 2018, before travelling on to Auckland in January and February 2019, offering guests the chance to discover the stunning beauty of New Zealand in the complete luxury of our newest flagship vessel.”
“The itineraries have been carefully crafted by our in-house team of experts, providing guests with the opportunity to discover an intriguing combination of rugged mountains, sparkling rivers, thundering waterfalls and cosmopolitan evenings. From the buzzing café culture of Melbourne to the award-winning wines of Wellington, guests will be awed at the beauty they encounter.”
The unique itineraries take in the rugged beauty of New Zealand’s fjord country along with the antipodean towns of Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland. Guests will be transported through the Fjord land National Park, one of New Zealand’s premier attractions, where they will discover rugged mountain ranges, dense rainforest, solitary alpine lakes, sparkling rivers and splashing waterfalls.
Highlights of these spectacular voyages include: cruising the beautiful Doubtful and Milford Sounds; Kangaroo Island, home to native wildlife such as sea lions, koalas and diverse bird species; Stewart Island, home to New Zealand’s newest national park, Rakiura National Park; Port Chalmers (Dunedin), home to the Royal Albatross and yellow-eyed penguins; and Napier, set amid the renowned wine-producing region of Hawke’s Bay and known for its art deco landmarks such as the zigzag-patterned Daily Telegraph Building.
Following three sailings between Sydney and Auckland, Silver Muse will depart Auckland on a 19 day voyage to Bali, leaving behind the rugged coastline of New Zealand to take in the sights of Sydney, Adelaide and Western Australia before arriving into Indonesia.
