Would you take an all-en­com­pass­ing cruise?

In 2020, Sil­versea will launch an ex­haust­ing 140-day round-the-world voy­age – the first to visit all seven con­ti­nents in one trip. We ask: would you buy a ticket?

YES Sheela KL,

Wan­der­lust reader “One of my fan­tasies as a lit­tle girl was to see the world in 80 days. It has re­mained my mo­ti­va­tion, and I’ve been to 32 coun­tries so far (al­beit not in 80 days). Now, this idea to see seven con­ti­nents in 140 days is a game-changer. Ev­ery­thing on this cruise sounds ad­ven­tur­ous, right from liv­ing on the ship to wak­ing up at sea, to sun­rises and touch­ing the sands on the shores. That sea breeze should be call­ing my name and invit­ing me to join the ad­ven­ture of a life­time.”

“I def­i­nitely see the ap­peal of this cruise, but for me, it’s too much in one go. I’d rather spend 140 days ded­i­cated to one con­ti­nent. Even af­ter spend­ing six months in South Amer­ica, I still felt like I’d only scratched the sur­face. Dif­fer­ent coun­tries in one con­ti­nent vary so much in char­ac­ter, land­scape, lan­guage and cul­ture, and I wouldn’t want to miss that. You could ar­gue that you could even spend 140 days ex­plor­ing one coun­try, let alone a con­ti­nent.”
