Silver Galapagos


Dear Adventure Traveller, i am very excited to present our silversea expeditions for 2014 including the new Silver Galapagos. as director of expedition cruises, i’ve planned itineraries for silversea expeditions since the very beginning, and have to say that 2014 is going to be, in a word… fantastic! Silver Galapagos begins operations in october 2013, offering a choice of two incredible 7-day itineraries throughout the remote Galapagos islands. each offers a unique combination of secluded setting, great wildlife and onboard luxuries for a truly spectacular experience that should not be missed. as for the elegant Silver Explorer, the year begins with our always popular antarctic cruises, followed by a non-traditional northbound route along south america. Silver Explorer guests can discover a destination in a way very different than with larger ships. We can anchor and go ashore by Zodiac to see wildlife in its natural habitat and are able to spend more time in port. Silver Explorer also visits the remote British isles, norway’s scenic fjords and spends summer with the polar bears in the arctic. a shortened svalbard season allows us to experience Greenland before commencing our highly anticipated northwest passage itinerary. this epic 23-day journey navigates the usually ice-choked waters of arctic canada. then it’s off to the russian Far east with its volcanic landscapes, remote villages and brown bears. new for 2014, Silver Explorer discovers the remote islands of Japan, the marianas and micronesia. accessible only by sea and rarely visited by outsiders, the cultures are fascinating and snorkelling opportunities at the unspoiled reefs are simply extraordinary. deep in the south pacific, we find Fiji and beautiful Bora Bora, spend two incredible days in easter island, and are the only cruise line to visit the lush austral islands. 2014 concludes as it began with another exhilarating antarctic season, featuring a special extended holiday sailing. We hope that you will join us in 2014 for any – or many – of these exciting silversea expeditions. conrad combrink Director of Expeditions
