Welcome aboard the Silver Explorer, an expedition cruise ship intricately designed to navigate the remote waters of the Antarctic regions. The Silver Explorer is equipped with an 1A ice-class strengthened hull and can push through ice with ease. With a maximum passenger capacity of 144 and a crew of 118, the Silver Explorer is the smallest cruise ship in the Silversea fleet, offering a more intimate cruise experience. The 12 Zodiac boats aboard the cruise ship allow its passengers to visit the most off-the-beaten path locations, while the expert Expedition Team offers valuable knowledge to each exciting Antarctic cruise excursion. The award-winning itineraries make the Silver Explorer the ideal combination of unforgettable adventure and exceptional service.

The Silver Explorer strives to provide comfort, scenic charm, and impeccable service during your stay. All suites aboard the cruise ship offer ocean views and butler service. The Silver Explorer offers 20 suites with French balconies, where you can enjoy your morning coffee with the picturesque view of the Antarctic horizons. The largest suite aboard, the Owner’s Suite, is an impressive 782sq feet (ca. 73 m²). Upon arrival, all passengers are greeted with flowers, a fresh fruit basket, and a fully-stocked cabinet with your preferences. Other suite amenities include binoculars, a personal safe, complimentary movies and documentaries, Wi-Fi, marble bathrooms, and your preference of toiletries to name a few. Gratuities are also included on your Antarctic cruise. No other tips are necessary, nor does the crew expect them.

The Silver Explorer is rightly named. This ship was built with the spirit of exploration in mind. Its itinerary program consists of luxury adventure Antarctic cruises anywhere from 10 to 21 days long. The Silver Explorer is equipped with an Expedition Team of specialists who are passionate about the amazing Antarctic and experts at spotting wildlife. You may even receive a 2am wake-up call if there’s an orca whale nearby. Head over to The Theater during your voyage for expert presentations, where you will hear tales of adventure or learn about endemic flora, fauna, and wildlife.

When passengers are not enjoying the exciting included excursions, the Silver Explorer offers plenty of entertainment, relaxation and fitness options. Your Antarctic cruise is not complete without martini or wine tasting, culinary demonstrations, or afternoon outdoor tea parties. The lounges also offer a variety of board games. Passengers can also take advantage of the Internet Café, which offers web-surfing stations and complimentary black and white printing. Relax in the Connoisseur Lounge, and sip on the finest cognac and vintage wines while enjoying a cigar. Or get pampered aboard at the luxury Zagara Beauty Spa and Salon. The spa is fully equipped with a sauna, steam room, and treatment room. An absolutely perfect way to wind down after a hike. If you’d like more physical activity during your cruise, head over to the small gym or jogging track aboard the Explorer.
