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.
The 136-day Controtempo World Cruise will depart Tokyo for New York on January 13, 2025, stopping in iconic and off-the-beaten-path destinations during unconventional seasons.
Guests will journey aboard Silversea’s 596-guest Silver Dawn for the global voyage, marking the first time a Muse-class ship has hosted a World Cruise.

“Feeding the incredibly high demand for extended voyages, our destination experts have designed our new Controtempo World Cruise 2025 to sail offbeat, enabling the world’s most experienced travellers to rediscover the world in a whole new light,” said Roberto Martinoli, president and CEO, Silversea Cruises. “Controtempo, a musical term that means ‘off-tempo’, will take guests closer to the authentic heartbeat of iconic and off-the-beaten-path destinations. We will be travelling to an unusual rhythm, from East to West, with more time ashore in unconventional seasons. For the first time, we will host our World Cruise aboard our beautiful Silver Dawn—a slightly larger ship with a capacity of 596—which pays testament to the high demand we are seeing for extended voyages.”
Guests will also enjoy an enhanced experience aboard Silver Dawn, with the choice of eight restaurants; eight bars and lounges; an immersive culinary programme, S.A.L.T.®; and an indulgent wellness programme, Otium.
“This is the invitation to gain a different perspective on the world, in true Silversea style,” Martinoli said.
