An innovator in luxury cruising, Silversea Cruises is pleased to announce that David McAllister AM, Artistic Director of The Australian Ballet, will join Silver Muse as a guest enrichment lecturer in January 2020. 

As a celebration of David’s final year as Artistic Director in 2020 and as part of the exclusive partnership between Silversea and The Australian Ballet, guests travelling on board the elegant Silver Muse will have the chance to attend thought-provoking lectures presented by David, along with the exciting opportunity to meet him in person, during an enlightening 13-day Pacific Islands voyage, departing Sydney on 3 January 2020.

Adam Armstrong, Managing Director – Australia and New Zealand, Silversea Cruises said:

“We are delighted to welcome David aboard our newest flagship vessel, Silver Muse, when she returns to the region later this year.  Silversea’s programme of enriched voyages is designed to blend culture and travel for a more immersive experience, and, as the longest serving Artistic Director of The Australian Ballet, David will further enhance this voyage for Silversea’s guests. David will provide an exclusive insight into his illustrious career, which includes almost four decades with The Australian Ballet and recognition in the 2004 Australia Day Honours List.”

David joined The Australian Ballet in 1983 and since then his legacy amounts to two substantial careers within the company as a dancer and as Artistic Director. As both Principal Artist of The Australian Ballet and as its longest serving Artistic Director, David has made an extraordinary and unique contribution to dance and the performing arts in Australia.  His career exemplifies the transformative power of ballet and under his leadership The Australian Ballet has become internationally renowned for its distinctively Australian style and character.

The enriched, all-inclusive cruise will journey through the Pacific Islands, making calls in New Caledonia, Vanuatu and Fiji. From the superlative luxury aboard, to the charming water music in Vanuatu and bathing in the natural pools of new destination Ile des Pins in New Caledonia, this journey will enable guests to experience the authentic beauty of the region.  Early Booking Bonus, cruise-only fares for the 13-day sailing start from AUD$6,920 per person, based on double occupancy in a Vista Suite.

The 596-guest Silver Muse offers uncompromising levels of comfort, service and quality for the world’s most discerning travellers. On board, guests will experience enhanced small-ship intimacy, spacious all-suite accommodations, expansive outdoor spaces and the most comprehensive choice of dining options at sea with eight venues, including speciality choices, such as Kaiseki and Indochine, plus 24-hour complimentary dining options in-suite and throughout the ship.
