By: Ana Figueroa

Silversea’s first World Cruise to completely circle the globe will feature an exclusive collection of 22 optional overland excursions of one to six nights.

Departing Jan. 15, 2007, from Fort Lauderdale, Silver Shadow’s World Cruise will cross three oceans, seven seas and six continents, visiting 61 different ports, and conclude in New York City, on May 22. Throughout the journey, guests of the award-winning, all-suite line will have the opportunity to participate in excursions that highlight the culture, flavors and excitement of the exotic itinerary.

For example, World Cruise guests will be able to walk in the footsteps of Charles Darwin in the Galapagos Islands; take a scenic rail journey through the Andes to mystical Machu Picchu; soar over the Australian Outback in a balloon; visit Bali’s ancient Buddhist and Hindu temples; or cross the Nile to explore Egypt’s ancient Valley of the Kings.

Each of the unique overland extensions includes deluxe accommodations, porterage, all transfers, sightseeing and some meals. Prices range from $445 to $4,295 per person, double occupancy.

For guests who prefer shorter tours, Silversea is also offering over 200 additional optional shore excursions ranging from just a few hours to a full day, all designed to enhance the World Cruise experience.
