Elegant luxury ship purpose-built to explore remote regions in first class comfort.

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 throughout Latin America and Antarctica on an inspirational series of short expedition cruises.

With a guest to staff ratio of 144-117, this ship delivers a uniquely civilised and all-inclusive expedition experience, with the service you’d expect from a top-notch hotel. You may start your day with breakfast in bed, courtesy of your butler. Enjoy traditional afternoon teas, four-course gourmet dinners and quality wines served by immaculate, attentive staff. Round off with a nightcap in the piano lounge – or help yourself to something from the personalised mini-bar in your cabin. Choose from cosy and comfortable accommodation with port holes or picture windows to large two-roomed suites with French windows opening on to private terraces.

A fleet of motorised Zodiac boats ferries guests ashore or for coastal cruises, accompanied by an expert expedition team. Landings are imaginative, fulfilling and adventurous in spirit. Back on board, your guides will tell you about the natural and human history of the continent through revealing talks and workshops.

Silver Explorer’s 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.

See our Latin America Coastal Cruises pages for a selection of incredible voyages beyond Antarctica.
