Silversea Cruises to the South Pacific

Sandy atolls home to small villages and dense greenery surround the azure blue waters of a lagoon. Exotic birds zip overhead, while bright coral reefs below the surface are home to many species. No matter the perspective, the South Pacific region is one of the most stunning – and its landscape, seen nowhere else in the world, has inspired artists, from playwrights to painters, for centuries.

Luxury cruise line Silversea captures this vision with itineraries full of must-see destinations across the world’s largest ocean. Idyllic, tranquil settings, however, are for more than viewing. Take them in by lounging on the black sands or near beautiful lagoons, exploring the surroundings, learning about each island nation’s unique cultures, and tasting the cuisine.


Silversea’s elegance and spacious accommodations frame each trip. Rooms with ample space, multiple dining and entertainment options, salons, a casino, a spa, and gym round out each ship, which departs from several major cities around the Pacific Rim. Three ships travel across this vast ocean: • Silver Shadow • Silver Whisper • Silver Spirit

All South Pacific cruises last at least eight days and are scheduled during fall and winter months.


Silversea takes the following routes:

Departing San Francisco or Los Angeles: For travelers looking to start close to home, consider this route. After Silversea departs California, the ship heads toward Hawaii, with stops in Hilo and Lahaina. Volcanoes, World War II history, and a cultural melting pot influencing several aspects of everyday life characterize your stay, before Silversea makes a path toward French Polynesia. After dropping anchor on Fanning Island and Christmas Island, Silversea explores several key points in this major archipelago: Bora Bora, Moorea, and Papeete, Tahiti.

Round Trip to Papeete: Take a detailed tour of French Polynesia. Lagoons, small villages, black pearl farms, and delicious cuisine are discovered as you tour through Bora Bora, Huahine, Moorea, Papeete, Aitu Taki, Rarotonga, Nuku Hiva, Hiva On, Raiatea, and Rangiroa.

Between Papeete and South America: These one-way itineraries take you between the major sights of French Polynesia and South America. Begin in Papeete to finish in Valparaiso, or start in Peru to end on Tahiti. In between, routes taken by explorers for centuries introduce you to the bounty history of Pitcairn Island, the Moai and well-known statues in Easter Island, and the exotic wildlife and stunning, untouched landscapes of Robinson Crusoe Island.

Papeete to Sydney: The sights of French Polynesia – some of the world’s most beautiful – begin your trip across the South Pacific. After Tahiti, you’ll spend time in Bora Bora, Nuku’Alofa, New Caledonia, Auckland, and Tauranga, New Zealand, before finishing in one of Australia’s most cosmopolitan cities.

Papeete to Auckland: There’s more than one way to cross the South Pacific westward, and with this route, you’ll explore Rarotonga, Bora Bora, and the Bay of Islands, before arriving in New Zealand’s largest city.

Los Angeles to Fiji: This cross-section of the Pacific begins on American soil, takes you through Hawaii’s beautiful landscapes and unique culture, and, after stops in Fanning Island, Sanu Savu, and Apia, ends in Lautonka, a Fijian location with one of the most awe-inspiring landscapes.

The South Pacific’s blue vastness begs for exploration. So find out why art keeps returning to this region with a Silversea cruise. Find an itinerary and book your trip today through Direct Line Cruises.
