Silversea Cruises has opened an exclusive pre-sale on its Controtempo World Cruise for 2025, inviting guests to journey offbeat to 59 destinations in 30 countries across four continents. Unveiled by the cruise line’s executives during a special live-streamed event, the 136-day Controtempo World Cruise will depart Tokyo for New York on January 13, 2025, unlocking some of the world’s most iconic and off-the-beaten-path destinations during unconventional seasons, with immersive experiences that introduce local people and the most compelling stories. Guests will journey aboard Silversea’s ultra-luxury Silver Dawn for the global voyage, marking the first time a Muse-class ship has hosted a World Cruise.
The Controtempo World Cruise 2025 was unveiled to selected guests and travel partners during a virtual premiere, which featured a video starring Fernando Barroso de Oliveira—Silversea’s President’s Ambassador to the Venetian Society. Incorporating a 10-song soundtrack composed especially for the event, inspired by each region on the voyage, the video depicts Fernando walking through a sample of the voyage’s destinations. He reveals the authentic experiences that await guests in each region, highlighting the draw of discovering the world off-season and through local eyes. At the video’s conclusion and following a brief presentation, attendees posed their questions to Roberto Martinoli, President and CEO, Silversea Cruises; Barbara Muckermann, Chief Commercial Officer, Silversea Cruises; and Fernando.
