Italy, Greece and Croatia – three countries with separate identities but fused by years of bloody history and passion for good food and wine.  Begin this journey in Venice with your host, Canvasback winemaker Brian Rudin, and fellow Duckhorn Portfolio enthusiasts, before gathering speed to the beautiful and illustrious Trieste.  Croatia’s trio of crown jewels – Split, Hvar and Dubrovnik shine bright next, as do the crooked streets of Italy’s Bari.  Get ready for island life in Corfu and Sicily before returning, via Naples, to the mainland.

Your ship, the new and ultra-luxurious Silver Dawn carries just 546 guests, ensuring the perfect balance between choice and intimacy. All accommodations are spacious suites that include around-the-clock butler service.  You’ll appreciate the ease, convenience and value of an all-inclusive cruise fare that includes almost all of your discretionary onboard expenses and Silversea’s culinary excellence offering a choice of multiple dining options, as well as several specialty venues.

About The Ship

Introducing: Silver Dawn
Coming in Spring of 2022

A new world of luxury is waiting aboard Silver Dawn.  Both classic yet modern, Silver Dawn is the natural evolution of the Silversea fleet.  Large enough to offer eight dining options – including the superb Sea and Land Taste (S.A.L.T.) program – yet small enough for the famed Silversea onboard ambience.  Silver Dawn inherits the best features of her sister ships Silver Muse and Silver Moon, but is in a class all of her own. Sumptuous suites, outstanding itineraries plus cutting-edge design and technology, Silver Dawn sets new standards of luxury.  Let’s wake up to a new dawn with Silversea.
