  • If you crave the thrill of adventure, and desire to explore some of the world’s most remote destinations, then you must take a trip on the Silversea Silver Explorer. Designed to navigate small spaces, you can travel to some of the world’s most remote locations in unsurpassed luxury. Whether you’re interested in exploring the dramatic natural beauty of Antarctica or the island cultures hidden in the tranquil Pacific Ocean, the Silver Explorer is the only choice for you. When you book a cruise aboard the Silver Explorer, you’ll venture deep into regions where other vessels cannot go, enjoying a privileged lifestyle that is simply second-to-none.

    Hosting only 132 guests, and staffed with an enthusiastic and informative expedition team, each voyage is hosted by leading naturalists who share their expert knowledge of each area's unique wildlife, history, ecology and geology. From educational shipboard lectures to guided field studies, these experts offer great insight on the nature and culture of the day's destination. Enjoy the warm camaraderie of these intimate group outings as you gain a deep appreciation for the rugged yet fragile beauty that surrounds you.

    The suites on the Silver Explorer have all been designed to ensure that travelers reach their destinations from the most luxurious surroundings imaginable. Luxury is found in every detail of the Silver Explorer: cut crystal, crisp linens, personalized stationery, shampoo, and lotion. Whether you opt for the cozy opulence of the Explorer Suite, the quiet sanctuary of the Vista Suite, or the prestigious and stylish Owner’s Suite, the accommodations aboard the Silver Explorer are sure to delight. Many suites feature a teak-style balcony, flat screen televisions, living rooms, walk-in wardrobes, and other luxurious amenities. With a range of different entertainment and dining options, your time on the ship will be as incredible as your adventures on land.

    In the interest of providing travelers the opportunity to explore, the Silver Explorer carries eight inflatable Zodiac boats, allowing you to reach places that would otherwise be inaccessible. In Antarctica, where there are no piers, Zodiacs are the perfect solution. They are not only incredibly safe and secure, but also allow for up-close explorations; close enough to examine the varied textures and crystallized patterns in a vivid blue iceberg, close enough to make a beach landing and exchange greetings of welcome with native islanders.

    Lisbon expedition

    5/2015 Portugal, Spain, France
    Full Review
    This is a very small ship so there was not entertainment other than piano and speakers(wine, cheese, history). Also no pool and the exercise room is tiny. Expedition leader got a little overbearing with her announcements. I have been on the Cloud &Whisper, and this is my least favorite ship of Silver Seas. Eric the piano player was outstanding. Last stop in France the mooring rope got tangled in the prop and delayed departure 6 hours. Some people missed their connecting flights.
    Pros great room and butler,food was teriffice(save for fish),SPA small but good
    Cons small ship, service at night spotty,one excusrsion awful, and two Fr tour gisues unbearable
