Silver Explorer

This purpose built cruise ship was designed by Silversea to reach some of the globe's most remote and fascinating spots, including the polar regions. With a name like Silver Explorer, this cruise ship will fit right in amid the snowcapped cliffs, icy waters and northern lights.

About Silver Explorer

The adventure begins before you even set foot on Silver Explorer, with a number of glamorous suites to choose from. The Explorer Suite, Owner’s Suite, Expedition Suite and Medallion Suite are just four of the many luxurious accommodation options available to cruisers onboard Silver Explorer.

While onboard you can enjoy the soft breeze and ocean views of dining al fresco. The Grill is Silver Explorer’s on-deck restaurant and offers both tapas and cocktails to enjoy day or night. If you’d rather dine indoors, then a feast of contemporary international cuisine awaits you at The Restaurant. Each offering is unique to the journey you make, with Chilean Sea Bass offered up while touring the Fjords, for example. Come in and sit down – it’s an open table format so there’s no need to book.

In your spare time, there are plenty of places to explore onboard Silversea’s cruise ship. For lovers of relaxation, the Silver Explorer Spa is the perfect place to indulge, with massages and skin treatments galore. Meanwhile, the Theatre shows all manner of films, so you can chill out and let the cinema take you on yet another adventure.

There’s also a library onboard, boasting a wide selection of hardcover books, newspapers and magazines. Or, if you’re so inclined, take to the Connoisseur’s Corner for an evening of cognac and cigars.

Cap off each day of adventure with yet another unforgettable activity onboard your expedition cruise – dinner in The Restaurant.

This is the time to recount experiences ashore with fellow guests and discuss lecture topics with Expedition Team members while savouring fine cuisine and perfectly paired wines. When possible, the Captain will manoeuvre the ship so as to enjoy spectacular sunset views or to follow the flukes of migrating whales.

Menus feature regional specialities unique to the voyage destination, for example, Roasted Chilean Sea Bass while cruising the Chilean fjords. During days at sea, choose something from La Collection du Monde, a series of signature dishes created exclusively for Silversea by the Grands Chefs Relais & Châteaux.

The ocean views and soothing sound of the surf can be quite intoxicating at sea, so it’s not surprising that daydreaming on deck is one of the most popular pastimes. However, every Silversea all inclusive cruise also includes a considerable number of more active pursuits — some for the body, some for the mind … and some just for fun.


The Library

The Library has an extensive selection of hardcover books, magazines, reference materials and newspapers, as well as audio listening stations. On-Demand Movies are available and can be viewed on your in-suite entertainment centre.

The Panorama Lounge

The Panorama Lounge is specially designed to provide an uninterrupted view of the day’s destination from the comfort of the cruise ship’s interior. This is an ideal place to unwind, listen to the pianist and enjoy a nightcap with new friends.

The Theatre

Gather in The Theatre to hear fascinating tales of adventure or to learn about the region’s endemic wildlife and remarkable nature. Lectures and seminars are presented by knowledgeable experts in a variety of scientific fields throughout the cruise.

Connoisseur's Corner

The Connoisseur’s Corner offers exceptional cognacs along with a premium selection of cigars for purchase.

Observation Lounge

Located on Deck 6 high atop the ship, the Observation Lounge offers panoramic views. Here you will find comfortable seats to enjoy a beverage and watch the ever-changing view throughout your cruise.

Internet Cafe

Email friends and family back home or surf the web for a nominal fee. Headphones and complimentary black and white laser printing are also available.

Although the emphasis onboard Silversea's Expedition cruises is the adventure it doesn't mean you have to miss out on the chance to lie back relax and treat yourself to a massage. Or if staying active is more your thing than hope onto one of the ships treadmills and work up a sweat.


Fitness Centre

The Fitness Centre is open daily and offers a treadmill, elliptical trainer, stationary bike and a weight machine.

The Spa at Silversea

Relax your body and mind with a wide range of soothing therapies including facials, body wraps and massages. Sauna and steam rooms are perfect for relaxing before your spa treatment or after a long nature hike.

A full range of Beauty Salon services are also available for both men and women including hairstyling, manicures and pedicures. Appointments for these chargeable services may be made on board the ship.

Silversea offers an enrichment programme of the highest calibre. There are wine tastings and cooking demonstrations so that you can savour the flavours of the lands you visit. Take a dance class. Sit in on a lecture by an eminent guest speaker. Watch a wine video customised for your destination. Or devote your time to more active pursuits — jogging, swimming or an exercise class at the Fitness Centre. Or perhaps you prefer shopping in the boutique, indulging in a massage, or soaking in a warm whirlpool. On board Silversea all inclusive cruises, the choices are many and they’re all yours.


Guest Lectures

The Expeditions Team is composed of knowledgeable experts well-versed in their field – from ornithologists, to marine biologists, geologists, historians and anthropologists - who provide informative onboard lectures on enthralling topics relating to your destinations. Silversea Expeditions allows the opportunity to extend your knowledge both on expeditions ashore, and also in the relaxed and comfortable environment of the ship.
