FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., Dec. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- For discerning world travelers, there's no better way to explore South America than aboard one of ultra-luxury Silversea Cruises' Grand Voyages scheduled to circumnavigate the continent in 2017.
Stretching from the steaming Amazon to the bone-dry Atacama Desert and the glacial peaks of the Andes, South America is a land of stunning extremes -- the world's highest waterfall, the world's longest mountain range, the world's driest desert, and the world's largest rainforest. And now the luxury cruise guests of Silversea may discover its dramatic diversity while sailing roundtrip from Fort Lauderdale aboard one of two bespoke voyages: a 63-day Silver Spirit cruise departing on January 16, and a 66-day cruise aboard the line's newest ship, Silver MuseSM, departing on October 13.
Designed for the traveler who relishes a more leisurely pace, these "Circle South America" odysseys combine the luxury of sailing aboard an intimate, elegant ship with the excitement of discovering South America's most captivating ports, unique cultures, and breathtaking scenery. Highlights include a crossing of the Panama Canal, two days cruising Chile's majestic fjords, a two or three-day stopover in Rio de Janeiro, plus multi-day calls in Buenos Aires and Callao (gateway to Lima and Machu Picchu).
On the Grand Voyages, full-voyage guests will enjoy an array of exclusive benefits:
--$2,000 Onboard Spending Credit (per double-occupancy suite)
--One exclusive Silversea Experience
--One exclusive shoreside event
--Free laundry service plus dry cleaning
"Our 'Circle South America' voyages aboard Silver Spirit and Silver Muse are perfectly suited to the traveler who has the time and passion to indulge in travel on a grand scale," said Kristian Anderson, Silversea's senior vice president and general manager for the Americas. "No matter which one you choose, you'll enjoy an epic voyage of virtually unlimited discoveries."
On these voyages guests will also enjoy ocean-view suites, gourmet cuisine, the personalized service of a butler, and a generous selection of all-inclusive shipboard amenities, including complimentary Champagne, select wines, premium spirits, specialty coffees, bottled water, juices and soft drinks; in-suite bar stocked with guests' preferences; in-suite dining and 24-hour dining service (from a formal dinner ordered from The Restaurant menu and served in-suite, to lighter fare served in attended lounges); lecture and enrichment programs; roundtrip transportation into town (in most ports); onboard gratuities (exclusive of spa treatments), and free Wi-Fi for each guest.
