In a world of multi-national conglomerates, Silversea Cruises is owned and operated by one family — the Lefebvres of Rome. This means genuine pride in ownership and a true Italian passion for embracing the best of life and a personal commitment to maintain the high standards of cruise excellence that have been the cornerstone of Silversea from the very beginning.
Silversea's small luxury ships are designed for those who delight in the thrill of discovery while indulging mind and body in the most lavish surroundings imaginable. All accommodations are spacious, ocean-view suites and most include butler service and private verandas. Silversea voyages and cruise expeditions sail to over 800 destinations on all seven continents, more than any other cruise line!
Silversea is renowned for culinary excellence and their luxury cruises offer a choice of open-seating dining options throughout the fleet, as well as several specialty venues aboard all non-expedition ships. Enjoy the ease, convenience and value of an all-inclusive cruise fare that includes almost all of your discretionary onboard expenses.
With eight small luxury ships, Silversea can show you the world in a far more personal, meaningful way. They can glide into small, secluded harbors not yet on the radar screen, or transport you on an expedition to some of the most remote regions of the globe. Then return at night to the gracious hospitality that reflects the companies Italian heritage.
Silversea boasts sumptuous ocean-view suites, all with butler service. Distinctive European styling is reflected in every detail, and with some of the highest space ratios at sea, their small ships have choice restaurants, show lounges, health spas and full-equipped gyms.
Silversea's purpose-built expedition ships are designed with ice-strengthened hulls and the latest technologies to ensure maximum comfort and safety while exploring the world's most remote destinations. A fleet of Zodiac inflatable boats allows guests to explore even the most off-the-beaten path locations, and an Expedition Team of the highest caliber adds insight and understanding to each unforgettable journey. On these voyages you will also enjoy the welcoming and attentive support of Silversea's experienced on-board crew, with the benefit of the best crew-to-guest ratio in expedition cruising!
You'll find some of the most spacious accommodations at sea aboard these intimate ships. Even the lowest categories are generously proportioned, and equipped with the amenities you would expect in the most exclusive resorts such as flat-screen TVs, full marble baths, in-suite bars and refrigerators stocked with your favorite beverages, (complimentary, of course). But what is unique about Silversea accommodations is the extent to which you can personalize your suite. Queen or twin-size beds? Firm or soft mattress? Bvlgari or Ferragamo toiletries? And that's just for starters.
All guests are pampered equally aboard Silversea ships. Silversea is the cruise line in the world to include butler service in every suite, in every category.
Silversea's unwavering commitment to flawless service requires an attitude that is totally focused on the part of every member of the staff. Their professional training is readily apparent from the waiter who keeps your water glass filled to the chef who prepares your favorite soufflé à la minute. It is a rare treat to experience personal service on such a high plane. Yet surprisingly gratuities are not expected. They're included in your fare.
Select wines, premium spirits, specialty coffees and soft drinks are complimentary in all bars, lounges and dining rooms. Your suite's mini-bar is also stocked with your preferences and replenished by your butler upon request.
A late-night snack? Breakfast in suite? A formal dinner served course-by-course from The Restaurant*? Room service is always complimentary, always an option, and always available.
*Selections from The Restaurant menu is available only during dinner hours.
For guests who prefer to explore on their own, roundtrip transportation from the pier to the heart of town is provided in most ports of call.
