Silversea introduced new summer voyages in Alaska and Iceland, beginning in July.

Via the passage of the United States' Alaska Tourism Restoration Act, enabling sailings to Alaska without required calls in Canada, the company's Silver Muse is scheduled to resume round-trip cruises from Seattle Washinfton starting on July 29, making Silversea the first ultra-luxury line to operate in Alaska during the summer months.

Silver Shadow is due to circumnavigate Iceland with the launch of all-Icelandic itineraries, returning to Northern Europe with a trio of 10-day cruises from Reykjavik, beginning on July 30.

Silver Muse ship's "ALASKA: THE LAST FRONTIER" itinerary program is based on roundtrips from Seattle, with a series of 10-11-day voyages. The extended Alaskan cruises enable Silversea’s guests to visit some of the region's best-known destinations, such as Sawyer Glacier and Mendenhall Glacier, as well as experience the state's scenic landscapes, wildlife and remote communities, including Juneau, Ketchikan, Sitka, Skagway, and Wrangell. An onboard naturalist is expected to explain the habitat and behavior of the wildlife. 

Silver Shadow ship's "ICELAND: THE LAND OF FIRE AND ICE" itinerary program includes 3 roundtrips from Reykjavik with visits to Akureyri, Husavik,Isafjordur, Grundarfjordur, Seydisfjordur, Siglufjordur, and the island of Heimaey. Circumnavigating the land of geological wonders aboard Silver Shadow, guests have the chance to marvel at glacier-sculpted fjords and volcanoes, walk across lava fields, and witness bubbling hot springs.

With Silversea's flexible booking policy, passengers who book before August 31 will be able to cancel their voyage up to 30 days before departure for all sailings (except World Cruises) through April 30, 2022, without penalties when choosing an FCC (Future Cruise Credit). 

All passengers and crew will be fully vaccinated against the COVID prior to embarkation, as part of the company’s comprehensive, multi-layered set of protocols that help to safeguard the health & safety of passengers, crew members, and visited communities.
