THE SILVER EXPLORER

There is something uniquely satisfying about a smaller ship. The intimacy. The friendly camaraderie. The excitement of exploring secluded harbours where others cannot go.

This intimate, ultra-luxury ship can sail up narrow waterways into the heart of a city, or tie up right at the pier while others must anchor off shore. And for those who yearn to explore the new and unknown, the Silver Explorer can transport you to the furthermost boundaries of the planet.

Equally gratifying is the experience on board this prestigious ship, for example the spacious suites with butler service. The delicious cuisine. The warm hospitality and European cachet that attract guests from around the globe. Travel is the elixir of life and every cruise is a voyage of discovery, and with a capacity of just 144 passengers, guests will feel at home.

The purpose-built luxury Silver Explorer expedition cruise ship has been designed specifically for navigating waters in some of the world’s most remote destinations, including both of earth’s polar regions.  A strengthened hull with a Lloyd’s Register ice-class notation (1A) for passenger vessels enables the Silver Explorer Expedition Cruise Ship to safely push through ice floes with ease.

A fleet of Zodiac boats allows Silversea Expedition guests to visit even the most off-the-beaten path locations and an expert Expedition Team provides insight and understanding to each unforgettable Silver Explorer luxury cruise adventure.
