On Your Doorstep: Luxury Cruising

From the natural treasures of the Great Barrier Reef to breath-taking South Island vineyards, explore more of Australia and New Zealand in all-inclusive luxury with Silversea

Sponsored by

Summer is a time for sand and surf, ice cubes in cocktails, hot destinations and cool city vibes. We yearn to go places, and where better than unique coastal destinations on our own doorstep?


Silversea’s all-inclusive voyages offer an incredibly easy and indulgent way to discover the breathtaking landscapes, superbly scenic harbours, wildlife, wineries and urban playgrounds of Australia and New Zealand. Step aboard the ultra-luxury line’s elegant small ships and discover spacious suites with butler service, a reinvigorating spa and wide choice of restaurants.


And with 30 years of cruise experience, Silversea has depth of local knowledge for exploration ashore, too, whether you dream of snorkelling on tropical reefs, or exploring culture-rich towns such as Dunedin and Napier. The fleet sails to more than 100 unique destinations in Australia and New Zealand, where guests can join bespoke small-group shore excursions and get up close and personal with each unique place they visit. 


A 16-day day Sydney-Auckland cruise departing on December 4, 2024 visits vibrant Hobart for an overnight stay, before sailing on to New Zealand to discover the pristine Milford and Dusky Sounds, as well as Christchurch, Picton, Wellington, Napier and Gisborne for a taste of these renowned wine regions. Ready to start the New Year in style? A 16-day Auckland-Sydney voyage departing on December 20, 2024 takes guests on a spectacular South Pacific voyage visiting six countries, including two blissful days in Fiji and Vanuatu, plus visits to New Caledonia and Norfolk Island.


Fabulous destinations apart, you’ll want to experience Silversea’s latest ultra-luxury ship Silver Nova. The innovative, 728-guest ship, which launched in August 2023, arrives in Australasia for the very first time this year. Expect bold new levels of style and design, as well as revolutionary technological solutions that make Silver Nova the most environmentally conscious ultra-luxury ship at sea. The ship’s unusual asymmetrical layout allows for an outward-facing rather than enclosed pool deck, and new outdoor spaces with floor-to-ceiling glass that flood the ship with light and provide a strong connection to your surroundings – ideal amid the scenic beauty of New Zealand.


Silver Nova is all about choice, whether it’s the ship’s 13 different suite categories – some entirely new for Silversea – or treatments available in the sophisticated Otium Spa, whose décor is inspired by ancient Roman baths. Silver Nova also brings an unrivalled foodie adventure Down Under through Silversea’s immersive S.A.L.T. (Sea and Land Taste) culinary programme, which tingles your taste buds with local flavours and traditions of the regions Silversea ships sail through. The restaurant S.A.L.T Kitchen serves an ever-changing menu of destination-flavoured dishes wherever the ship sails, while interactive professional kitchen S.A.L.T. Lab allows guests to get hands-on experience of local recipes.

With so many incredible experiences awaiting onboard and ashore, Silversea’s 2024-2025 voyages make the perfect choice for all-inclusive summer holidays right on your doorstep.
