Silversea made history with the first-ever cruise ship call to Bangladesh on February 22, according to the Monaco-based company, when the Silver Discoverer visited Maheshkhali Island.
The three-day stopover in the country also included visits to Hiron Point, Charaputia, Harbaria and Kokilmoni. High points for guests included explorations of the Sundarbans mangrove forest, a UNESCO World Heritage Site renowned for its population of Bengal tigers.
The ship sailed again to Bangladesh last week on a 14-day voyage that continues this week with visits to several destinations in Myanmar.
“This is a major milestone in Silversea’s history that underscores our commitment to exploring some of the world’s most remote and secluded regions,” said Conrad Combrink, global head of expedition planning and strategic development. “Our inaugural call in Bangladesh is just one example of themany once-in-a-lifetime adventures that can be enjoyed aboard our expedition ships, which sail to virtually every fascinating corner of the globe.”
