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.”
