When it comes to luxury cruising, Silversea Cruises® is among one of the best in its class. Consistently recognized for their outstanding levels of service, itineraries, suites, and excursions, Silversea has been named Best Small-Ship Cruise Line for 12 years by readers of Condé Nast Traveller.
Why cruise with Silversea? Let us count the reasons:
Carrying no more than 608 guests, Silversea’s fleet of eight ships provides the pinnacle experience in small-ship cruising. Relax in a social camaraderie onboard with friends who you will see daily, explore harbours and hamlets that are off-limits to large ships, and enjoy quick access to gourmet dining, inviting lounges, and the open sun decks, all steps away from your suite. Onboard Silversea, line-ups and crowds are a thing of the past.
Silversea’s classic fleet includes Silver Spirit, Silver Whisper, Silver Wind, Silver Shadow, and Silver Muse, while the expedition fleet includes Silver Galapagos, Silver Cloud, and Silver Explorer. Carrying only 100-254 guests, the expedition vessels take guests to explore the most remote and bio-diverse areas of the planet.
In August 2020, Silversea will welcome its ninth luxury vessel Silver Moon, sister to the much-lauded Silver Muse. Also arriving in Summer 2020 will be the Silver Origin, the first ship built by Silversea to specifically sail the waters of the Galapagos. Silver Origin will host just 100 guests in butler-attended suites, elegant lounges, and gleaming decks. In keeping with the company’s focus on sustainability travel, the Silver Origin will employ a dynamic positioning system without the use of anchors, and the vessel will be 100 percent free of single-use plastics.
Luxurious Oceanview Suites
Your home-away-from-home onboard Silversea is an oceanview suite with premium bedding and a choice of pillows. A marble bath awaits, along with plush robes, slippers, and walk-in wardrobe. In the sitting area, you’ll find a refrigerator and bar stocked with beverages of your preference, a flat-screen TV, and a writing desk. Want more space? Upgrade to a veranda suite, with floor-to-ceiling windows and a private deck. And for the ultimate in luxury, choose from an array of apartment-style suites with separate bedroom, dining and living room.
Luxury means never having to pull out your wallet for every little thing, and Silversea delivers a stress-free experience. Enjoy gourmet meals in the main restaurant, buffet, poolside, or in the comfort of your suite. It’s all included. Fancy a drink? Select wines, beers, premium spirits, as well as specialty coffees and non-alcoholic beverages are all included. Gratuities to the dining room servers, bar staff, and suite attendants are also included. Onboard expedition voyages, a shore-side activity is also included at every landing.
The dining experience receives high priority onboard Silversea. Each ship features a main restaurant where guests dine on continental and international cuisine amid sparkling crystal, fine silver, and sweeping ocean views. Special attention is taken to incorporate regional specialties of the destinations the ships are sailing in. Casual meals can be taken at the rotisserie and burger bar, which transforms into a lava-stone cooking venue in the evenings. Additional options include French and Asian specialty restaurants (varies by ship). And of course, to celebrate Silversea’s Italian roots, fine Italian cuisine can be found onboard, with authentic dishes and the freshest ingredients to tantalize your taste buds. Dining onboard Silversea is always open seating, where guests can dine at any time, with whomever they choose.
With a staff to guest ratio of nearly one to one, Silversea boasts one of the best service levels in the industry. Guests are spoiled by white-gloved staff who anticipate needs and deliver perfection. Every suite includes a personal butler who will offer unpacking and packing services, make dinner reservations, and leaves every guest wanting for nothing. On expedition cruises, a team of field experts guide tours and educate guests about the history, culture, and the landscapes they are visiting.
Sailing to over 900 destinations across seven continents, Silversea can take you wherever you like to go. And with their small ships, you have access to ports and coves where large ships can’t venture into, such as sailing right into the heart of town and docking next to the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, or the Tower Bridge in London. Expedition cruise destinations include the Polar regions, the Galapagos, the South Pacific Islands, Africa & the Indian Ocean, and Australia & New Zealand. Every year, a grand world voyage, as well as several extended voyages are offered, allowing for leisure-paced globetrotting while travelling in grand style.
If you are looking to explore the world while being utterly spoiled with the very best in accommodations, cuisine, and service, consider a cruise onboard Silversea Cruises! Contact your Vacation Consultant today to find out more.
