CroisiEurope’s New Oceangoing Ship.

By Anne Kalosh.

La Belle des Océans, currently sailing as Silver Discoverer for Silversea Expeditions, will vastly expand CroisiEurope’s oceangoing itineraries when it debuts for its new owner in October.

The 120-passenger ship is going to begin service in Southeast Asia before sailing to India, the Arabian Gulf, Egypt, the Greek Islands and the Mediterranean, before continuing on to North America on the St. Lawrence/Great Lakes in summer 2020.

La Belle des Océans will begin service with a 10-night itinerary between Singapore and Phuket. Destinations include Malaysia’s Malacca, Port Klang (for Kuala Lumpur), Penang and Langkawi, and Thailand’s Ko Muk, Ko Lanta and Phang Nga Bay. Ten departures are scheduled from Oct. 17 to Dec. 28, 2019.

In January, the ship will sail a pair of 10-night cruises, first to India and then from Abu Dhabi to Oman. A nine-night cruise in February explores Jordan, Egypt, Israel and Cyprus.

On to the Mediterranean

Weeklong voyages from Piraeus (Athens) to Naples, Italy; Naples to Nice, France; and Nice to Ajaccio, Corsica, follow. April 2020 will be spent on weeklong Corsica sailings.

Then, in May, La Belle des Océans will cruise to Lisbon in 11 nights, and from there to the Portuguese island of Madeira and the Azores in an eight-night program.

Summer 2020 on the St. Lawrence

The ship will then head via Saint Pierre et Miquelon, a French outpost in North America, to Québec. Ten-night cruises visiting ports on the St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario will operate until October, with calls at Québec, Montréal, the Thousand Islands and Niagara-on-the-Lake for Niagara Falls.

La Belle des Océans will become CroisiEurope’s second oceangoing ship, joining La Belle de l’Adriatique.
