– William Cowper
And variety is what is happening in the travel industry. It's spicing up our travel options and continually giving us choices we would never have imagined possible!
In previous posts we've covered:
- The new Regent Seven Seas Explorer in July, 2016
- The Belmond Grand Hibernian luxury train in Ireland in 2016
- The Crystal ships beginning December, 2015, and the Crystal Dreamliner, a private jet slated for 2017
- Disney sailing on European rivers with AMA Waterways in 2016
- Virgin Group's three ships to debut beginning 2020
And now we can add the Silversea Cruises ultra-luxury new flagship, the 596-guest Silver Muse The Muse is scheduled for delivery in April, 2017. It will be a bit larger than their last new-build, the Silver Spirit. So we can still be assured of the small-ship intimacy and spacious all-suite accommodations that have always made Silversea voyages so special to look forward to and to look back on.

Silversea operates two fleets - the Classic Fleet of five traditional luxury ships and their three-ship Expedition Fleet. The Expedition Fleet offers upscale adventure cruises to Antarctica, the Galapagos and other "off the beaten path" destinations. These are places where we could use a little pampering after a day of zodiacing, and hob-nobbing in foul-weather garb in uninhabitable climes.
Seabourn, so special to so many of us, has announced that bookings are already open for their newly-built Seabuorn Encore. And in 2018 their new Seabourn Ovation will begin its sailings. The Ovation will be accommodating 604 guests and should prove to provide luxury travel in an intimate setting.
It's pretty difficult to keep track of it all, isn't it? What we can do though is start a shopping list. You know...make columns for When, What, Where and Likes. Or, just call us at Reid Travel, where our advisers stay on top of who's doing what, when and where and are very happy to share it all with you. Keep in mind that once new ships open for bookings, they fill up fast!
