About Silversea Cruises

Silversea Cruises offers a unique perspective, with small ships including four special expedition vessels, which carry small numbers of passengers to exotic locations that other companies never reach. All vessels in Silversea's fleet of 9 are far smaller than the giant mega ships of other cruise companies, for an intimate, luxurious experience.

Silver Muse, the newest and largest ship in the fleet, built in 2017, can carry just 691 passengers. At the other end of the scale, 1990's Silver Galapagos is an expedition ship with capacity for only 120 guests. The crew to passenger ratio is high, and all staterooms come with butler service. Voyages on the smaller expedition ships are often longer and usually more expensive than on the company's cruise ships.

Silversea prides itself on its unusual itineraries. Its ships travel all over the globe, and while shorter, more traditional cruise destinations can be booked, such as Caribbean journeys of 5 to 7 nights, the company's appeal really lies in its more exotic offerings. A 6-night river journey on Silver Muse carries guests from Manaus, Brazil, down the Amazon river to the ocean.

Silver Cloud's 21-night African expedition starts in the popular cruise destination of Cape Town, South Africa, but soon veers off the beaten track, visiting Luanda, Angola and Abidjan on the Ivory Coast. The company is also well known for its 7-night Galapagos voyages, which use smaller expedition ships to explore the remarkable archipelago.

Given the company's emphasis on exploration and visiting uncommon destinations, it is fitting that cruises usually offer a number of lectures for guests. Experts give presentations about local culture, nature, and wildlife. Furthermore, the company employs a number of professional guides and naturalists, highly qualified and able to accompany guests onshore to make shore excursions an educational opportunity.

Shore excursions are a real highlight of the Silversea experience. There are tours of culturally important buildings and historic areas, as well as options to entice nature lovers. In the Galapagos Islands, passengers can snorkel with sea lions. While in Walvis Bay, Namibia, a flight above the Sossusvlei Dunes can be enjoyed. Wildlife-spotting is also a common activity in many destinations.

The onboard experience will vary between the cruise ships and expedition ships. The cruise ships all come equipped with a pool and hot tubs, which are not always standard on the expedition vessels. However, Silver Discoverer and Silver Galapagos do both have a salon and gym. Silver Galapagos' spa is limited to a single massage room.

Cabins are generally spacious, and all come with a flat screen TV, writing desk, safe, mini-bar, hairdryer, bathroom and seating area. Most cabins have a bathtub as standard. Silversea voyages are all-inclusive, so the mini-bar is complementary, and guests who find themselves lacking something can speak to the butler.

These journeys are emphatically not designed for children. There are no child-specific facilities onboard, and while a few families travel with Silversea, they are definitely in the minority. Most passengers are mature adults with an interest in adventure. This is a popular line with retirees, who appreciate the chance to see unusual parts of the world in luxury and the quiet onboard atmosphere. Expedition ships attract a more diverse clientele, as younger adults often enjoy the physically active shore excursions on offer.

Evening entertainment is sophisticated and calm. Mature musical performances are common. On Silversea expedition ships, the night before a shore excursion, passengers are given the chance to attend a briefing to learn about the destination. Often, movies that showcase the local area are screened. The emphasis on these voyages is very much education and exploration, rather than resort-style entertainment, for a cultural cruise experience.
