Silversea opts for Asia over congested Sydney

Sydney: Sydney’s congested cruise facilities have seen one line shun Australiasia in favour of Asia. Silversea has decided to ditch plans for a number of Sydney and Auckland voyages this year in favour of keeping a ship, Silver Wind, in Asia.

“That ship is going to concentrate more on Asia, and particularly on Myanmar which has become the really hot ticket,” senior vice president UK, Europe & Asia Pacific Steve Odell told media in Sydney on Thursday.

“Frankly speaking, we will miss having the Sydney and Auckland cruises, but Sydney is becoming increasingly difficult as a destination to find berths, it’s expensive and from an operational point of view, it can be more profitable going to these other kinds of destinations.”
