Silver Explorer

A fortified hull helps Silver Explorer to navigate the icy waters that are found in the harsh Polar Regions at both tips of the earth. Custom built to deal with these extreme conditions; she easily transports tourists and crew members to places that many other ships could only dream of reaching. Silver Explorer is one of three boats in Silversea’s expedition fleet, along with Silver Galapagos and Silver Discoverer, all of which aim to combine the comforts and luxury found aboard more conventional cruise ships with the sturdiness and probing capabilities that ships like this need to enable the most far-flung adventure cruises to take place.

With almost as many crew on board as guests, you are sure to receive a superior service whilst getting the chance to see a selection of the world’s more arcane places; something which the majority of people will never get to do. As well as the Artic and Antarctica, Silver Explorer also travels to Africa, Central and South America as well as Europe and the British Isles.
