Silversea Luxury Cruises Recognised as the World's Best by the readers of Condé Nast Traveller and Travel & Leisure, Silversea offers guests large-ship amenities aboard specially designed, intimate vessels. Their distinctive European style reflects the line's true Italian heritage and this is evident in every detail, from the sublime all-suite accommodation and uncompromising service levels, to the exquisite gourmet dining and a carefree all-inclusive philosophy. Intimate ships
Silversea launched its first ship Silver Cloud in 1994, followed by Silver Wind in 1995, Silver Shadow in 2000, Silver Whisper in 2001 and Silver Spirit in 2009. The fleet was purpose-built for the ultra-luxury market, establishing a new class of smaller, intimate vessels that could slip into more exotic ports. These elite vessels were specifically designed for fewer guests, more space and the highest levels of personalized service, whilst incorporating the most popular amenities found on larger ships, such as an elaborate show lounges, casinos, spas and state-of-the-art fitness facilities.
In addition to its five luxurious ships, Silversea added an expedition vessel to its fleet in 2008, named Silver Explorer. This incredible vessel journeys to some of the world’s most far-flung and remote destinations, while still maintaining high levels of luxury and service unrivalled on any other expedition cruise. She was joined in 2013 by Silver Galapagos and in 2014 by Silver Discoverer, which offer explorational sailings to the Galapagos Islands and the South Pacific respectively.
There are a wealth of options when it comes to daily activities on-board with Silversea. Whether it’s a delightful cup of afternoon tea, a matinee of movies, a dance class or culinary demonstration, a game of bingo, shuffleboard or even table tennis, there is a little something to suit every taste. After dinner, guests will be invited to enjoy a treasure trove of lounges, bars and entertainment venues around the ship, before retreating back to their sumptuous suite, offering a haven of amenities for the perfect night’s sleep. Making their debut in 2015 are the Voices of Silversea, a talented ensemble of vocalists who will lend their talents to seven all-new and exclusive production shows which will be performed in each ship's show lounges. Also contributing to this incredible evening entertainment programme are members of The London Philharmonic Orchestra, who have provided exclusively-recorded backing music for a number of the productions.
