Experienced travelers and adventure seekers are looking for itineraries and experiences off-the-beaten path. Silversea was the first luxury cruise line that created a niche in luxury expedition cruising, first with one, and now with four expedition ships, exploring more exotic corners of the planet.

Silversea Expeditions luxury line ships explore over 500 far-flung destinations including Australia's Kimberley Coast, the Russian Far East, the Galapagos Islands, the Arctic and Antarctic, and more.

All the service staff are trained at top hotel and hospitality schools around the world. With a crew ratio of nearly one-to-one, personal service is Silversea's maxim, and the line offers the best service ration in expedition cruising.

Silversea is a member of the Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators (AECO) and the International Association of Antarctic Tour Operators (IAATO), and adheres to each organization's guidelines to ensure sustainable tourism. These include such measures as limiting the number of guests going ashore in certain areas of the Arctic and allowing for a broader range of Antarctic landing sites for expedition ships with no more than 200 guests. For the Arctic/Antarctic expedition voyages, there is on average one team member guiding no more than twelve guests each. Plus the ship will be augmented by a fleet of Zodiac craft for up-close explorations.

An impressive array of programs for guests' personal enrichment are offered, with destination lectures by a highly qualified team, photo presentations and daily recaps. Exploratory excursions are complimentary (in the Arctic/Antarctic), and led by a team of experts, including marine biologists, ornithologists, geologists, botanists, historians, and anthropologists. Expedition gear is complimentary.

These expedition cruises offer a comfortable, intimate and convivial onboard lifestyle where guests can feel at home as they explore secluded lands. Guests enjoy ocean-view suites, gourmet cuisine, the personalized service of a butler, and a generous selection of all-inclusive shipboard amenities, including complimentary beverages, wines and spirits, a stocked in-suite beverage cabinet, and complimentary Wi-Fi for each guest.

Fine dining venues include the main and Italian restaurants, a poolside grill, and a Wine Restaurant by Relais & Châteaux that features superb vintages paired with regional fares. Silversea features one of the best-stocked cellars at sea. You’ll be able to savor the different wines, champagne and spirits, as well as beer, bottled water and specialty coffees, which are provided complimentary throughout the ship. Your in-room bar and regrigerator is also stocked with your preferred beverage selections.
