EXPLORE REMOTE REGIONS. DISCOVER INTI MATE LUXURY.


EXPLORE REMOTE REGIONS. DISCOVER INTIMATE LUXURY. Dear Adventure Traveller, I am very excited to present our Silversea Expeditions for 2014 including our newest ship Silver Galapagos. As Director of Expeditions, I have planned itineraries for Silversea Expeditions since the very beginning, and I have to say that 2014 is going to be, in a word…extraordinary, visiting five continents and 234 unique destinations! Our new vessel, Silver Galapagos, will follow incredible 7-day itineraries throughout the remote Galápagos Islands. Each offers a unique combination of secluded settings, great wildlife and onboard luxuries for a truly spectacular experience that should not be missed. As for the elegant Silver Explorer, she has a packed programme of voyages through the polar regions, Central and South America, the Pacific and Europe. New journeys for 2014 include expeditions to the Northwest Passage, Russian Far East, Japan, French Polynesia and the South Pacific. In the remote Siberian Arctic, we will meet reindeer herders and search for birdlife, seals and brown bears. Further south, taking in the spectacle of Micronesia and Melanesia’s thousand islands, we may sail on a sleek outrigger, hike up an active volcano or snorkel along brilliant coral reefs. I invite you to join us as we travel through idyllic isles and distant seas where time moves at a relaxed pace. I look forward to welcoming you on board any, or many, of our Silversea Expeditions. With fine dining, spacious suites and personal pampering, we are charting a new course for expedition cruising.

ENCOUNTER THE WILD, ENRICH THE SOUL Venture to the wild extremities of this extraordinary world. Get close to rare creatures on distant lands and seas. Commune with nature, as your inspirational guides spot species such as the flightless cormorant, lava lizard and arctic fox. On every voyage, biologists, zoologists and ornithologists will join historians and anthropologists to enrich your experiences. The more you explore, the more long-lasting memories you will gather. And the more you will marvel at the wonders of nature. Your Expedition Leader will work closely with the Captain to enhance the opportunities for adventure and exploration, based on weather, wildlife activity and sea or ice conditions. In all regions, the itineraries allow for moment-to-moment flexibility, staying longer at sites of particular interest or making slight detours whenever weather, nature or mere curiosity dictate. All expedition voyages feature rugged, inflatable boats that allow for up-close explorations in shallow waters and narrow passages.

Each Expedition Team member is selected for a particular expertise. Their education, experience and enthusiasm make them ideal companions for wilderness adventure. The lecture staff will introduce you to the history, wildlife, terrain and cultural customs we expect to encounter as we reach each thrilling new destination.

THE ROYAL GEOGRAPHICAL SOCIETY In an exclusive partnership, The Royal Geographical Society and Silversea Expeditions have joined forces to spread knowledge collated from centuries of scientific exploration. The renowned Royal Geographical Society (with The Institute of British Geographers) is providing detailed scientific and historical information to guests embarking on voyages aboard Silver Explorer and Silver Galapagos.

CHARLES DARWIN Revolutionary Naturalist 1809 — 1882 Born in Shrewsbury, Darwin was an enthusiastic amateur naturalist. On the second voyage of HMS Beagle, his discoveries on the Galápagos Islands played a major role in his development of the ‘Theory of Evolution’.

A Landmark (and Seafaring) Partnership Founded in London nearly 200 years ago to advance geographical science, The Society, whose patron is Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, is to share some of the world’s most important geographical research and archive material with Silversea Expedition guests. Dating back as far as 1472, there are more than two million items in the Society’s historic collection, including a million maps, half a million photographs, 250,000 books and many journals, manuscripts and iconic artefacts. The Royal Geographical Society is a respected professional body for geography and geographers and is one of the largest societies of its kind in the world, as well as the biggest in Europe. It has a powerful history associated with exploring, documenting and understanding the world’s environments, people and places.

Explore the Society’s Collection Throughout its history, the Society has enhanced geographical and environmental education, been a champion of fieldwork and scientific expeditions and raised public understanding of the changing world. The Society has been a notable supporter and communicator of the work of leading explorers and scientists, including Charles Darwin, David Livingstone, Robert Scott, Sir Ernest Shackleton and Sir Edmund Hillary. As a Silversea guest, you will have access to a wide range of specialised visual and written content from the Society, enabling you to learn even more about early expeditions to destinations including Antarctica, the Arctic, the Galápagos Islands, South America, Africa and Europe.

EXPERT OBSERVATIONS… Travelling at the western side of the archipelago one feels transported back in time, with active volcanoes; fresh lava floes; peaceful marine iguanas and sea turtles feeding under snorkellers; flightless cormorants diving for food and sea lions basking under the equatorial sun. All creatures living together in harmony make us appreciate this paradise lost in time. MAGDALENA TERNEUS GALÁPAGOS FIELD STAFF COORDINATOR & PACK GUIDE 06

GALÁPAGOS NORTH CENTRAL ITINERARY

GAL��PAGOS EXPLORATION BALTRA ROUNDTRIP — NORTH CENTRAL GALÁPAGOS

Cruising by Zodiac along scenic coastlines and stepping ashore on uninhabited islands, you will see marine iguanas, families of sea lions and giant tortoises. Experiencing first-hand the fearless behaviour of the indigenous wildlife, you will catch sight of red- and blue-footed boobies and search for the endemic Galápagos barn owl. Bird Island, alone, is home to over 70 bird species.

01

EXPERT OBSERVATIONS… Visitors come to the Galápagos from all over the world to experience the unique innocence that Charles Darwin discovered in 1835. Nowhere else can you get so close to playful sea lions, oblivious penguins, nesting albatrosses and dancing blue-footed boobies. You may wonder why these creatures are so naïve, trusting us the way they do. They share their environment with us, as they would with any other being, because they have evolved without the presence of humans.

REMOTE ARCTIC & RUSSIAN FAR EAST Explore the top of the world in search of reindeer, Arctic fox, seals, walrus, whales and polar bears. Beyond the Arctic Circle, venture deep into icy waters and spectacular terrain only accessible during the brief summer thaw. This unforgiving yet unforgettable land will reveal nature’s beauty and fragility.


REMOTE ARCTIC & RUSSIAN FAR EAST FEATURED ITINERARY

THE FABLED NORTHWEST PASSAGE K ANGERLUSSUAQ TO NOM E

Taking the route of Roald Amundsen, the first person to successfully navigate the legendary Northwest Passage, you will cruise alongside spectacular icebergs and see one of the world’s fastest moving glaciers. You will hike across barren tundra landscapes, discover the cultures of remote Greenlandic towns and learn about the native Inuit and Pre-Dorset peoples. Along the way, look for polar bears, musk ox, caribou and bears.

01

EXPERT OBSERVATIONS… We will visit various settlements of Inuits and learn about their culture. As we explore the wilderness, we will reveal the history of this region, visiting former outposts of the Royal Mounted Police, graves of members from the mid 19th century Franklin Expedition and overwintering places of the Amundsen Expedition. And we will keep a good eye to find the king of the Arctic – the polar bear. STEFAN KREDEL EXPEDITION LEADER 05

EXPERT OBSERVATIONS… My two favourite parts of the world are the Russian Far East and my adopted home of Japan; the former for its vast wilderness areas and wildlife, and the latter for its almost infinitely varying islands (more than 6,000), its gracious people, fascinating culture and its extraordinary biodiversity. I am looking forward to travelling through both areas with Silversea in 2014. MARK BRAZIL LECTURER & HOKK AIDO RESIDENT

REMOTE ARCTIC & RUSSIAN FAR EAST FEATURED ITINERARY

SVALBARD & SCORESBY SUND LONGYEARBYEN TO REYKJAVIK

Observe majestic fjords, icebergs, and glacier-filled bays as you ice-cruise by ship and Zodiac. Crossing the Arctic Circle, you will search the shoreline for the king of the Arctic – the polar bear. You will identify seabirds, seals, walrus and whales, see fascinating lava caves and visit an Inuit settlement abandoned 200 years ago. Whether cruising or taking a guided walk ashore, you will come up-close to mystical settings.

01

EXPERT OBSERVATIONS… Nothing matches the excitement of seeing the inner fjords of Southern Greenland, the home of the first Norse settlers under Eirik the Red. Dating back to the 10th century, farmsteads were built by the new Norse settlers and today many of these stone buildings can still be easily seen along the fjords. To visit such farms as Qassiarsuk and Gardar, mentioned in the Icelandic Sagas, is truly unforgettable, and for many a dream come true. DR. COLLEEN BATEY HISTORIAN 05

EXPERT OBSERVATIONS… The Chilean Fjords are one of the few places on earth where you can find a Temperate Rainforest. Nine glaciers come down from the high Andean Mountains, finishing with a spectacular glacial front in the fjords. The scenery is beautiful and is home to more than 1,500 plants and some 150 bird species. The crystal clear waters are inhabited by dolphins, marine otters and seals. The fjords are a paradise for any biologist and nature lover. HANS PETER REINTHALER MARINE BIOLOGIST 05

EXPERT OBSERVATIONS… The untamed, unspoilt and mega-diverse Pacific coast of Colombia is a raw diamond waiting to be explored – with the highest biodiversity of birds, butterflies and frogs in the world. Explore this green wonderland on Silver Explorer and let us show you these destinations in style. The Panama Canal – constructed over 100 years ago – is still as awe inspiring since the day it was built. A Panama Canal daytime transit should be a ‘must see’ on the well-travelled cruiser’s list of places to go. JUAN CARLOS RESTREPO EXPEDITION LEADER 06

Guests are advised to contact the airline(s) directly to confirm and / or change pre-assigned seating. Other requests such as adding frequent flyer numbers and requesting special meals or wheelchair assistance must be requested directly with the airline(s).

Silversea issues airline tickets within 90 days of sailing and only after final payment has been received. Due to the fact that airlines change their schedules often, guests are urged to review their flight details upon receiving their electronic ticket receipt, and should also contact the airline(s) directly at least 72 hours in advance to reconfirm flight schedules and baggage allowance / fees. From time to time, Silversea will contract for charter air service via its local ground operator or with the airline(s) directly. The ground operator acts on Silversea’s behalf with regard to flight confirmation, ticket purchase, and advance seat assignments. Charter service booked via the ground operator is in Economy Class, unless otherwise specified. If offered, upgrades may be requested for an additional charge, but are not guaranteed. Waitlists for upgrades will not be accepted. Full flight details may not be available in advance of final documentation.
