Silversea Expeditions

Silversea Expeditions offer luxury expedition cruises in several awe-inspiring regions, including Antarctica, the Arctic, the Galapagos Islands and the Pacific.

Sailing aboard a fleet of adventure-ready ships, Silversea Expeditions combines a luxurious onboard experience with immersive itineraries focused destination-led discovery. Accompanied by Silversea's highly professional Expedition Team and hand-picked local guides, you will enjoy a journey of enlightenment in one of the world's greatest wildernesses.

On every Silversea Expeditions' cruise, you will have the opportunity to enjoy numerous highlights. From Zodiac landings on glaciers to visits to seldom-seen islands and face-to-face interactions with remote communities, no two days with Silversea Expeditions are ever the same.

We highly recommend Silversea Expeditions if you are looking for an alternative to the more 'traditional' cruise experience; particularly if you have a yearning to discover your inner explorer. Silversea Expeditions are also an ideal choice for solo travellers, due to the camaraderie forged through small-group excursions and shared experiences.

Silversea Expeditions Destinations & Itineraries

Silversea Expeditions offer no shortage of itineraries should you be looking to cross somewhere off your travel bucket list. Silversea's fleet of vessels are small enough to be granted privileged access to hidden harbours and landing zones - many of which are inaccessible to larger ships.

Antarctica aboard Silver Explorer, Silver Cloud and Silver Wind

Silversea Expeditions have a long, illustrious history of cruising Antarctica. Having first visited the region in 2008 aboard Silver Explorer (previously named Prince Albert II), Silversea has since increased the number of itineraries and experiences available, courtesy of the recent expedition-ready refurbishments of Silver Cloud and Silver Wind.

The majority of Silversea Expeditions' Antarctica cruises set sail from Ushuaia and operate between November and late February. The most popular itinerary is a 10-day Ushuaia round-trip sailing which features four days exploring the Antarctic Peninsula and one day in the South Shetland Islands. However, should you wish to stay in the region for longer, Silversea also offers 18-day voyages which include South Georgia and the Falkland Islands.

During your time in the Antarctic Peninsula, you will have the chance to follow in the footsteps of great explorers like Shackleton and Scott, while also enjoying close-encounters with penguins, seals and maybe even breaching humpback whales.

The Galapagos Islands aboard Silver Galapagos and Silver Origin

There is no better way of exploring the Galapagos Islands than with Silversea Expeditions. Sailing aboard either Silversea Galapagos (which is due to end its service in July 2020) or the new Silver Origin, every seven-night itinerary is brimming with highlights.

Departing from either Baltra or San Cristobal, you can visit the Charles Darwin Research Station on Santa Cruz Island, walk on the white sands of Espanola Island's Gardner Bay and hike to the top of Punta Pitt for incredible views of the sparkling seas below.

The South Pacific aboard Silver Explorer and Silver Cloud

Set sail for the South Pacific with Silversea Expeditions and discover a region that is as close to paradise as one could imagine. Sailing aboard either Silver Explorer or Silver Cloud, Silversea's South Pacific itineraries feature stops in several of the region's, including Easter Island - home to the famous Moai - and Bora Bora in the gloriously tropical Society Islands. Choose an itinerary that features Papua New Guinea and come face-to-face with the Baining Fire Dancers, or dive beneath the waves on a snorkelling trip on Rangiroa Island.
