The Silver Explorer is a purpose-rebuilt expedition ship which has been a stalwart of exciting snowbound adventures within the Silversea fleet. Originally built in 1989 as the World Discoverer II, this beautiful cruiser was given a multi-million-pound refit in Italy and is now one of the finest Silversea expedition vessels to ever grace the waters.
Take to the sea and venture to the southern tip of Argentina, embarking to the Antarctic Peninsula, South Georgia and the Falkland Islands for a trio of truly awe-inspiring visits. Alternatively, explore the South Pacific coastline and visit the ports of Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Costa Rica and Panama, on a journey of discovery.
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 Silversea, including exceptional dining, absolutely pristine décor, and an atmosphere of sumptuous sophistication pervading every gorgeous deck.
