Silversea Expeditions

Silversea Expeditions offer soft adventure-style cruises in several of the world’s most remote regions, including Antarctica, the Galapagos Islands and the Asia Pacific regions.

Sailing aboard a fleet of purpose-built ships, Silversea Expeditions combines luxurious onboard environment and first class service with expertly-crafted itineraries that focus on destination discovery and exploration. Each voyage features numerous highlights; from Zodiac landings on glaciers, visits to seldom-visited islands and face-to-face interactions with remote communities, we guarantee that no two days with Silversea Expeditions are the same.

We highly recommend Silversea Expeditions if you are looking for an alternative to the traditional cruise experience; particularly if you have an interest in natural history, wildlife and cultural traditions. They are also a great choice for solo cruisers, due to the great comraderies that are forged onboard through group excursions and shared experiences.

Silversea Expeditions in Antarctica, The Galapagos Islands & More

Silversea Expeditions offer no shortage of itinerary choices should there be somewhere you wish to cross off your bucket-list. The regions they visit are truly off-the-beaten path and are best seen on a small ship that allows you privileged access to hidden harbours and landing zones that are inaccessible to larger vessels.

Antarctica aboard Silver Explorer

While Silversea Expeditions operate voyages in all seven of the world’s continents, they are renowned for their Antarctica cruises aboard Silver Explorer, all of which set sail from Ushuaia in southern Argentina and run between November and late February. Depending on which itinerary you choose, sailings can include visits to highlights such as the Elephant Island and the South Shetland Islands as well as the opportunity to walk on giant glaciers, get up close to Chinstrap and Gentoo penguins and maybe even catch a glimpse of breaching Humpback whales.

The Galapagos Islands aboard Silver Galapagos

Another popular choice of expedition cruise are the itineraries Silversea offers in the Galapagos Islands. Sailing aboard the Silver Galapagos, Silversea offer two distinctive sailings in the region, each one lasting a duration of 7 nights. The sailings feature numerous highlights, from the famous Charles Darwin Research Centre on Santa Cruz Island to Espanola Island’s Gardner Bay; a stunning stretch of shoreline with crystal clear waters, white sands and an abundance of sea lions. Cruising the Galapagos Islands really is a must if you have an interest in natural history, wildlife or photography – and there is no better way of seeing them than with Silversea Expeditions.

Asia-Pacific aboard Silver Discoverer

Silversea Expeditions’ newest ship, Silver Discoverer, offers a more diverse itinerary schedule than the lines other vessels and is mainly based in the Asia-Pacific region. During the winter months, Silver Discoverer cruises Asia and the Indian Ocean before heading to Australasia for the summer. The most popular voyages in her collection are those operated in the beautifully remote Kimberley region of Western Australia.

Dependent on the time of year, Silversea Expeditions also offer cruises in the British Isles, the Arctic Circle, the Caribbean and the Russian Far East.
