When Do You Want To Go?

Luxury Expedition Cruising

The Silver Explorer brings 5* luxury to expedition cruising and is one of the most comfortable, well-appointed small ships in the polar waters. Décor on board has a quality, classic feel with a variety of different space to enjoy. The Panorama Lounge at the aft of deck 5 is a real hub with the bar serving a variety of delicious beverages to the backround music from the ships pianist. A sweeping staircase then leads down into the restaurant which is a magnificent space to enjoy. The food served is absolutely delicious and the menu changes daily. Breakfast and lunch are generally served buffet style but dinner is served course by course with candlelight adding an elegant touch.

Despite being a luxury vessel the atmosphere on board is an intimate, relaxed affair for just 130 guests. If you are looking for a more casual dining, the ship has a spacious outdoor grill at the aft of deck 6 which is open during good weather. On deck you will also find 2 whirlpools which offer a unique experience that you must try at least once during your cruise! The ship also has a small spa and gymnasium too.

The Silver Explorer is an all-suite ship with 6 categories to choose from. Each suite is elegantly appointed with a comfortable bed, private bathroom, ocean view and each suite comes with butler service. We particularly recommend the Veranda Suites which feature a small seating area and Juliet balcony – perfect for snapping pictures from the comfort of your suite!

The great range of facilities and comfort is not at the expense of the expedition side. The Silver Explorer has a great team of top expedition staff who will make sure you get the most out of your time in the polar regions. There is a fleet of zodiacs for exploring and the aim is to make 2 excursions per day (except days at sea). Each day the team hold lectures and briefings in the ships presentation lounge and you will often find them on-deck to add further insight into the magical landscape. The Silver Explorer offers expedition cruising in style.

Features Include; 

All suite ship, private bathrooms with hot water, butler service, panoramic lounge / bar, restaurant, outdoor grill, presentation lounge, fitness centre, small spa, whirlpools, elevator, shop, fleet of zodiac boats, top expedition staff,
