LEGENDS OF CRUISING
140 DAYS — 7 CONTINENTS — 32 COUNTRIES — 62 PORTS
Unlike any other World Cruise ever conceived, Legends of Cruising takes you on a journey that lets you set foot on all 7 continents. It gives you the opportunity to swim in every ocean, learn of countless cultures and see innumerable natural wonders.
We want you to be one of the select few who are able to say yes they have seen the unspoilt, snowy plains of Antarctica and bathed in the vibrant rhythm of South America. Yes — they have felt the heat of Africa, drank from the melting pot of Australia, found peace in Asia and imbibe in the captivating history of Europe.
140 Days/139 Nights
Uncover the world’s best-guarded secrets through an exclusive series of immersive and insightful events while making cruising history. Below is a taste of things to come.
26 January – Buenos Aires
Time Travel and Tango
Travel by vintage car as we take you back to the thirties for an evening of fine Argentine culture in one of the city’s oldest architectural gems, El Zanjo.

14 and 15 March – Champagne Beach & Pentecost Island, Vanuatu
Immersion in the Pacific’s mysterious cultures
Complimentary events in the Pacific Ocean let you immerse in the diverse traditions of Vanuatu’s secluded islands as back-to-back experiences in Champagne Beach and Pentecost Island take you through a series of adrenaline-packed moments.

On Pentecost Island, partake in the festivities of the death defying land divers and witness the young males perform a celebratory jump from 70ft high wooden tower with nothing but tree vines as wrapped around their ankles.
28 March – Fremantle (Perth), Australia
Symphonies and Champagne at the Quarry Rocks
Nestled in the stunning setting at Bold Park reserve with the city’s skyline in view and a champagne picnic basket to hand, treat your sense to a remarkable evening of sound and colour as Perth’s Symphony Orchestra performs exclusively for our Legends in the outdoors of Quarry Rocks’ Amphitheatre.

Travel in the fleet of vintage cars hired specifically for the evening and the throwback to the thirties feel is complete!
VOYAGE TWO OF NINE
BUENOS AIRES TO VALPARAISO
The frozen continent at the end of the earth is well worth the wait. The coldest, highest and driest of all seven continents, Antarctica begs discovery. Be humbled by the solitude and emptiness, as pods of seals lazily bask on floes, waddles of penguins dive (and thrive) in the icy waters and humpbacks – the most magnificent of all maritime beasts; breach gracefully before your very eyes.
2 February – Stanley, Falkland islands
One of the smallest capital in the world, Stanley is home to war memorials, a red phone box and a plethora of endemic wildlife. Biologists, birders and historians will revel in the Falkland Islands’ only town, which seems in many ways a British village fallen out of the sky.
5-6-7 February – Antarctica Experience
For the first time ever during a World Cruise, enjoy an expertly led, 3-day programme of exploring in Antarctica with our Expedition Team. Hand in hand with our team, set foot on the last continent and wander through its vast white horizons, with a unique choice of excursions and workshops organised by our acclaimed Experts.

VALPARAISO TO PAPEETE
As you move west across the South Pacific, enjoy this unique opportunity to explore three of the world’s most captivating islands. Just tiny dots in the vast blue mass, Robinson Crusoe Island, Easter Island and Pitcairn Island are the stuff of many childhood dreams. The fairy-tale completes itself with the school of kaleidoscopic fish that swim in crystalline waters around your feet. Paradise found.
17 February – Robinson Crusoe Island
At 420 miles off the coast of Chile with nothing but a royal blue horizon at sights, it is no surprise that Robinson Crusoe island is said to have inspired Daniel Defoe in the creation of his eponymic hero. Today however, this volcanic island is a renowned destination for trekking and sightseeing, as it holds an incredible variety of fauna and flora.
22-23 February – Easter Island
Sailing towards the heart of the Pacific, learn the legend of the mystical and mysterious Easter Island statues. Silver Whisper will stay her overnight, leaving ample time to wander through the famous Rapa Nui Park, in search of the enigmatic Moai statues.

Situated halfway between Peru and New Zealand and with just 56 residents, it does not take long to walk around Pitcairn Island and learn about the famous Bounty Mutineers and their Tahitian companions. Through stops at the SDA Church and John Adam’s grave, wanderers will have a wide choice of routes and treks to choose from.
VOYAGE FOUR OF NINE
PAPEETE TO SYDNEY
And on we go, the infinite expanse of sea punctuated by the coral gardens of islands, each more beautiful than the last.

14 March – Champagne Beach
Ghoulish masks, shells, ornate headgear and other worldly body painting, step into the mysterious and slightly frightening cultures of some of the Pacific’s remotest cultures.

19-20 March – Sydney
Docking next to the world’s most famous Opera House, how will you decide to spend your time in Sydney?

And with an overnight schedule, there’s sufficient time tick quite a few boxes.
