Silversea’s purpose-built luxury Silver Explorer expedition cruise ship, with its ice-strengthened hull, was designed to navigate the waters of some of the world’s most remote destinations, including both of the Earth’s polar regions. You can now travel with her all the way from the Caribbean to Antarctica on a seamless series of short expedition cruises: choose the itinerary that most interests and inspires you.
Offering a guest to staff ratio of 144-117, this ship delivers a top-of-the-range experience from the champagne proffered as you are escorted to your quarters to the butler bringing you breakfast in your suite and the concierge who can fully customise your voyage.
The fleet of motorised Zodiac boats ferries guests ashore or for coastal cruises, accompanied by an expert Expedition team. While your guides will inform you about the natural and human history of the continent, while relaxing on-board you will experience the facilities of a luxury hotel or apartment. There is a variety of cabins and suites to choose from, from comfortable accommodation with port holes to large two-roomed suites with French windows opening on to private terraces. Spacious lounges, a piano bar and gourmet dining with fine wines complement the superior service.
Her relatively small size and agility means that the ship can navigate narrow waterways to get up close to glaciers and icebergs and enter narrow or shallow harbours. This flexibility means she is as well at home negotiating the cliff-bound channels of ice-stifled Antarctica as the palm-fringed bays of the Caribbean.
