Ultra-luxury cruise line Silversea has announced new summer voyages in Alaska and Iceland, starting in July 2021. Silver Muse will resume round-trip sailings from Seattle starting Thursday 29th July 2021, making Silversea the first ultra-luxury cruise line to operate in Alaska this summer. Silver Shadow will circumnavigate Iceland with the launch of new all-Icelandic itineraries, returning to Northern Europe with three 10-day voyages from Reykjavík from Friday 30th July 2021.
Roberto Martinoli, President and CEO of Silversea, said, “We proudly continue to lead the ultra-luxury cruise industry’s healthy return to service and commend the leadership of Alaska and Iceland for taking steps to advance the safe resumption of global travel.
“The return to service is fast gaining momentum and we’ve seen exceptional demand for travel in Alaska and Iceland. We’re eager to welcome back our guests to unlock unforgettable experiences aboard Silver Muse and Silver Shadow while contributing to the local economies of the incredible communities we visit.”
Silver Muse will set sail on round-trip voyages from Seattle following a varied series of 10 and 11-day itineraries.
