The inspiration behind the cruise “is to take guests closer to the authentic heartbeat of iconic and off-the-beaten-path destinations,” he adds. “We will be travelling to an unusual rhythm, from East to West, with more time ashore in unconventional seasons.”

While world cruises typically begin in winter and end in spring, focusing primarily on destinations with warm climates, Controtempo will depart at a time of year “when you’re not going to find millions of tourists at both marquee and less-discovered destinations,” says Andrea Tonet, Silversea’s vice president of product strategy. “We’re travelling deeper because we’re offering a different perspective, a different view, of the places you may think you know.”

Controtempo World Cruise 2025 departs from Tokyo on Jan. 13, 2025 and arrives in New York, its final port of call, on May 29, 2025. The 136-day voyage will visit 30 countries and 59 ports on four continents, and will include 33 overnight calls, seven bespoke events that are exclusive to full-world-cruise guests, three optional overland tours, and 23 world cruise maiden calls.

The voyage will sail aboard the 596-passenger Silver Dawn, which made its debut in 2022. According to Martinoli, the world cruise will boast Silversea’s highest space ratio onboard, plus the line’s largest selection of restaurants, bars and lounges. It will also feature S.A.L.T. (Sea and Land Taste), Silversea’s culinary immersion program, and OTIVM, its indulgent wellness initiatives.
