Silver Explorer

Silver Explorer is Rated 5 Star Rating 4.5 out of 5 with highest 5 stars based on 2 reviews.

The Silver Explorer is a purpose-rebuilt expedition ship which has been a stalwart of exciting snow bound adventures within the Silverseas fleet. Originally built in 1989 as the World Discoverer II, this beautiful cruiser was given a multi-million pound refit in Italy in order to create one of the finest Silverseas expedition vessels to ever grace the waters.

A stunning variety of expeditions and excursions await cruisers who take an adventure to the world’s most stunning rugged landscapes, such as the icy splendour of the Arctic Circle. Passengers can look forward to a breath-taking range of hikes, day trips and wildlife-watching, supported by diligent, knowledgeable guides. Amidst all of this excitement though, the Silver Explorer is still abundant with all the luxury you expect from Silverseas, including exceptional dining, absolutely pristine décor, and an atmosphere of sumptuous sophistication pervading every gorgeous deck.




Silver Explorer Experience


Due to the outstanding refit which gave the Silver Explorer a modern sheen to go along with classical styling, the number of suites and staterooms was reduced from 122 to 66, meaning that this awe-inspiring vessel features some of the most spacious cabins in the whole of the Silverseas fleet. All of the staterooms on board feature a brilliant array of features throughout, in order to make sure you can experience your stay in the style and comfort you deserve. From a full size Italian marble bathroom, to a beautiful bedspread fitted with fine linens and down duvets, everything in your suite embodies luxury.


There a wealth of options for intrepid cruisers when it comes to dining on board the Silver Explorer. Fitting in with the adventurous atmosphere that comes from travelling on this pioneering vessel, lunches and breakfast can often be taken in the sunshine upon the outside deck, giving cruisers a gorgeous taste of fresh air and a beautiful food to accompany the splendid meals. All of the cuisine on board is prepared by world-class chefs, and is often unique to each destination, travelling through the Chilean Fjords, for example means that Roasted Chilean Sea Bass will be a highlight of that night’s menu, making every meal a unique experience as individual as the cruisers on board.


Just because the Silver Explorer is a ship tailored for expeditions doesn’t mean it’s lacking in an abundance of luxury comforts. The boutique is a perfect place to enjoy some leisure time. Featuring designed clothing collections and duty-free shopping, it’s easy to while away an afternoon enjoying its delights. Alongside the high fashion items of the boutique, there is plenty to keep you occupied. The Connoisseur’s Corner is a fantastic place to unwind with a premium cigar and some exceptional spirits, all within plush surroundings which would not be unsuited to the most exclusive of gentleman’s clubs. Make sure to head to the Observation lounges to enjoy some downtime with the added bonus of exquisite panoramic views.


If far flung adventures are what you want from a cruise holiday, then the off-beat attractions that the Silver Explorer is home to are sure to prove an absolute delight. Alongside shore excursions which include hikes and negotiating wildlife trails, cruisers are also given the unique opportunity to embark on a trip by Zodiac to get an unprecedented look at colonies of Walruses, ice floes filled with polar bears, and flocks of rare seabirds. There also informative and thoroughly entertaining lectures given in The Theatre which offer enthralling insights into the local wildlife, natural wonders, and history of the regions you are visiting.


With such a pristine, spacious vessel to explore, the intimate atmosphere of the Silver Explorer means a moment of serenity is never far away. Enjoy a quiet drink in the Panorama and Observation lounges, or even take a trip to the library, to delve into a favourite classic or a new release within tranquil, plush surroundings. There is also a Spa on board which offers numerous treatments from expert specialists, ranging from wraps and facials, to a deep-tissue massage to work out those stresses and sore muscles. There is even a modern sauna and steam room to enjoy, featuring roomy, authentic wood interiors.


Silver Explorer is aimed at mature travellers, and although children are welcome on-board, there are no features aimed specifically at younger cruisers.
