GO EXPLORE INTRODUCING SILVERSEA EXPEDITIONS A voyage with Silversea expeditions is thrilling, awe-inspiring and humbling all at the same time. It is for the curious traveller who longs to delve beyond the surface of the places they visit to uncover the hidden treasures unique to each.

Then explore by Zodiac®, kayak, or on foot, going further and getting closer to nature, wildlife and intriguing cultures. From the raw beauty of Antarctica to the tribes of Papua New Guinea, Silversea can transport you to the most remote and amazing places on the planet. But no matter where you go, you’ll enjoy a uniquely enriching experience, expanding your global perspective and prompting you to re-evaluate what really matters.

THE SUN THE MOON … PLUS EVERY CORNER OF THE PLANET Superb cuisine, the supreme pampering of a dedicated butler … plus a celestial choice of all-inclusive voyages to all seven continents. Travel in its most consummate form? We think so. We now have nine boutique ships that can transport you in the most heavenly way imaginable to the most intriguing destinations on earth. All told we visit over 800 destinations including over 90 new ones — more than any other cruise line. And that includes places you’ll only find aboard a smaller ship. The Mergui Archipelago, for example, an irresistibly lovely lost world of 800 islands in the midst of the Andaman Sea, and Bangladesh’s Moheshkhali Island — Silver Discoverer will be the first expedition cruise ship to visit this river-laced, gorgeously green country. Our itineraries are not award-winning for nothing. Explore the secluded harbours of the White Sea, the rugged coastline of The Kimberley or the hidden gems of the Indian Ocean. Follow the trading routes of Henry the Navigator or swim with the spectacular manta rays in the Galápagos, from thrilling expeditions to an epic world cruise, from discovery and adventure to sun, sand and sea — whatever you dream of, wherever you dream of going — we can make it happen. Now more than ever.

ACCESS ALL AREAS There is something uniquely satisfying about a smaller ship. The intimacy. The camaraderie. The excitement of calling at secluded harbours where others cannot go. Our intimate ships can transit narrow waterways and tie up dockside while others must anchor off shore. That means less tendering and more time to explore. While for those who dream of the new and unknown, our expedition fleet can transport you to the furthermost boundaries of the world.

SILVERSEA EXPEDITIONS SILVER EXPLORER — 132 GUESTS Designed for navigating waters in some of the world’s most remote destinations, including both polar regions, our purpose-built expedition ship can push through ice floes with ease. Silver Explorer offers a level of luxury and service unmatched in expedition cruising.

SILVER DISCOVERER — 120 GUESTS Silver Discoverer sails for lands untouched by time or tourists. Visit remote tribal villages where few visitors have ever set foot, uncharted atolls and coral isles vibrant with marine life, and vast yet fragile rainforests that nature still claims as her own.

SILVER GALAPAGOS — 100 GUESTS With a proven skill for navigating the waterways throughout the Galápagos Islands, Silver Galapagos is naturally suited for in-depth explorations. Make this elegant, intimate ship your home away from home as you discover this spectacular region.

SILVER CLOUD — 200 GUESTS BEGINNING NOVEMBER 2017 With five dining options, the highest space and service ratios at sea, and verandas in almost every suite, Silver Cloud sets a new standard of luxury in expedition travel — including a two-story state-of-the-art theatre, perfect for lectures, seminars and films.

SILVERSEA CLASSIC SILVER CLOUD — 296 GUESTS UP TO AUGUST 2017 Resembling a private yacht, Silver Cloud sets the standard of excellence as the inaugural ship in our fleet. She provides the most intimate sailing experiences, the luxury of space and the ability to slip into exotic ports off the beaten path.

SILVER SHADOW — 382 GUESTS Silver Shadow takes award-winning, all-suite luxury to the next level while maintaining Silversea’s genuine hospitality and intimate, elegant ambience. This ship features one of the highest space-to-guest ratios in cruising.

SILVER SPIRIT — 540 GUESTS Silver Spirit combines our distinctive luxuries and celebrated lifestyle with new enhancements, including six dining venues, an expansive 8,300 square foot spa, a resort-style pool, four whirlpools, and the largest suites in the Silversea fleet — 95% with private verandas.

SILVER WIND — 296 GUESTS Silver Wind embraces Silversea’s most lauded features … fewer guests, more space and highly personalised service. One of the most intimate ships afloat, she is still large enough to offer multiple entertainment venues, plenty of room on deck and a spacious spa.

SILVER WHISPER — 382 GUESTS Maintaining an intimate ambience, Silver Whisper offers many amenities usually found only on larger ships. She reinforces Silversea’s reputation for combining small-ship service with a choice of wide-ranging facilities.

INTRODUCING SILVER MUSE — 596 GUESTS Offering the highest number of large suites aboard any of our ships, Silver Muse fuses state of the art technology, Italian craftsmanship and luxury modern amenities. Look forward to eight innovative dining venues, multiple culinary options and new and improved facilities aboard.

WHERE IN THE WORLD WOULD YOU LIKE TO GO? A Silversea Expedition cruise is like nothing you have ever experienced. Imagine the comfort and intimacy of our ships, coupled with fabled destinations so hard to reach that tourists never visit. Our on board service and dining options won’t compromise your love of luxury, while the award-winning itineraries are designed to offer the best possible onshore experience. Step foot on the extraordinary continent of Antarctica, lose yourself on the tiny atoll of Aldabra, so protected from all human influence that it hosts the world’s largest population of giant tortoise. Liaise with our hand-picked team of experts who will help and guide you through your voyage in order to give you the most enriching journey imaginable. With over 80 new ports of call for 2017, we ensure that wherever in the world you want to go, you can get there with Silversea.

Kamchatka, Russia

EXPLORE THE REMOTE AND REMARKABLE Whether it’s attending a briefing, exploring by Zodiac®, or hiking on terra firma, a voyage with Silversea Expeditions will immerse you immediately in your destination. One day you could be snorkelling with sea turtles, the next day blazing a trail through an old growth rainforest while Long-tailed macaques screech overhead. And every year we add new and intriguing destinations — some so isolated and remote they have yet to surface on the radar screen. In 2017 we’re pleased to debut over 80 ports including 12 new islands in the nutrient-rich Bering Sea, a treasure-trove of wildlife and scenic wonders. Further north, the Andaman Islands were closed to foreign travellers for many years and remain untouched and spectacular. We are particularly delighted to be the first cruise line to call at Bangladesh, visiting wildlife sanctuaries in the Sundarbans, home to the Bengal tiger. For many modern-day adventurers, Antarctica represents the final frontier and this year both Silver Explorer and Silver Cloud will be winding through the glacial waters of the White Continent. Or you can sail across the top of the world to marvel at polar bears, vast herds of caribou, and enormous colonies of seabirds that thrive in these frozen regions.

SILVER CLOUD EXPEDITIONS DISTINCTIONS • Highest space ratio — 7.8 M2 / guest • Highest service ratio in Antarctica — virtually one-to-one • Five dining options — more than any other ice class ship • All ocean-view suites with butler service • 80% suites with private verandas • Two-story state-of-the-art lecture theatre • Dedicated polar library • Polar boutique • 18 Zodiacs® and 19 guides • Onboard activities include lectures, briefings, recaps, discussion groups, photography workshops • Complimentary down-filled parka and backpack

THE LUXURY YOU WANT … THE ADVENTURE YOU DREAM OF INTRODUCING SILVER CLOUD EXPEDITIONS After an extensive refurbishment, your favourite ship will be the most luxurious Ice class ship in Antarctica. Along with more dining options, her service and space ratios are the highest in expedition cruising. And she is superbly designed to capture the magnificent scenery with panoramic public rooms, broad decks, and verandas in most suites so that breaching whales or cavorting penguins are never far from view. Purpose-built with an 1C ice class hull, Silver Cloud can carry up to 260 guests. But when in Antarctica, we’ve chosen to limit her complement to a maximum of 200 guests. That’s important, since crowds reduce the number of landings permitted in this fragile environment. And with 18 new state-of-the-art Zodiacs®, you’ll have plenty of opportunities for exploring the wonders ashore.

Equal parts lush and raw, it is a place of both unforgiving terrain and unforgettable beauty.

INGREDIENTS of EXCELLENCE A key component of Italian culture, fine dining has been a centrepiece of the Silversea experience since the very beginning. Partnerships with such high-profile names as Relais & Châteaux® and Slow Food keep us at the cutting edge of the culinary scene, and we are continually pushing the boundaries with local, traceable, sustainable and other ethical food trends. Thanks to the size of our ships, our chefs can source produce and seafood directly from the ports we visit. Epicurean adventures across the globe mean that Silversea Expeditions offer the best ocean-fresh fish, crisp salads, prime cuts and vegetarian options. A special culinary expedition voyage is available for those who want to fully immerse themselves in the local cuisine and culture of the regions visited. What do we serve? What do you prefer? Our master chefs prepare a global range of inventive creations and regional specialities, all artfully presented with every micro-green morsel perfectly in place. There’s also a generous choice of fine wines from some of the world’s foremost wine regions. Whether you prefer to sip and savour your repast at an indoor or outdoor dining venue, or served course-by-course in the privacy of your suite, as always, the choice is yours.
