From the Arctic to Antarctica, Silversea Expedition voyages challenge your senses and show you the world up close, in all its vivid, glorious detail. Silversea’s all-suite, all-inclusive ultra-luxury Expedition ships were built to take you to places few people ever see, and they’re going even further in 2021-22. They’re introducing the first Expedition World Cruise in history, crossing 21 oceans and seas to visit 107 destinations in 30 countries, and the world’s first ultra-luxury fly-cruise to Antarctica. Silversea also expanded their experience of the Galapagos with new itineraries and destinations and are launching their first cruise ever to cross the Antarctic Polar Circle, reaching all the way to latitude 69°S. Find out more about each destination below.
To further enhance guests’ destination experience in the Galapagos Islands, 68 new voyages aboard Silver Origin will incorporate five maiden calls, including the beautiful island of Santa Fe. The iconic islands of Fernandina and Isabela now feature on both itineraries, and each will include improved programmes ashore. Guests will have more opportunities to admire the iconic wildlife species of the archipelago, including the Galapagos Penguin, green sea turtles, endemic iguanas, and many remarkable bird species. Silver Origin will build on Silversea’s multi-award-winning cruise experience in this unique region, forming meaningful connections between travellers and the destination. Aboard Silver Origin, guests will enjoy the highest expert guide-to-guest ratio (1:10) and the highest Zodiac-to-guest ratio (1:12.5) in the region.
Silver Cloud, Silver Explorer, Silver Wind
Silversea’s longest-ever voyage to Antarctica, travellers will embark on the cruise line’s first-ever voyage dedicated to attempting to cross the Antarctic Polar Circle on a 20-day exploration of the White Continent, departing January 27th, 2022. Part of an enriched 35-voyage Antarctica season, the Deep Antarctica expedition will take guests to unprecedented latitudes in the history of Silversea, with Silver Explorer proposing to reach an impressive 69°S. Guests aboard Silver Explorer will venture to Marguerite Bay and potentially even as far south as the Bellingshausen Sea, a spectacular and seldom visit area of the Antarctic Peninsula. Following Silver Explorer’s dry dock period, guests will enjoy the highest expert-to-guest and Zodiac-to-guest ratios in the region with 14 Zodiacs and a dedicated team of 14 world-class expedition staff.
Expedition World Cruise
Proving that Silversea breaks the ice in more ways than one, Silver Cloud will host on our first Expedition World Cruise in early 2022. Postponed from 2021, the ground breaking World Cruise will sail pole to pole, covering 107 destinations, 30 countries, 21 oceans and seas in 167 days. Lucky guests can not only expect to experience the very best of each country, but also a plethora of extraordinary events and educational lectures. If you have ever truly wanted to experience the authentic beauty of the world, then the Expedition World Cruise is the way to do it.
Grand Arctic Expedition
Silver Cloud will welcome intrepid explorers in July 2021 aboard Silversea’s first ever Grand Arctic Voyage. Sailing from Tromso to Nome (Alaska) in 64 days, the unprecedented journey takes in some of the world’s least travelled routes, including the mythic Northwest Passage. Take advantage of the brief summer thaw and experience a pristine region at the top of the world where nature rules the roost. Zodiac cruises, exclusive events, superb speakers and supreme comfort guaranteed.
Also included in Silversea’s new collection of expedition voyages for 2021/2022 are 10 voyages in Northern Europe, with five sailings departing from various ports in the British Isles and two voyages to the Norwegian Fjords; a wide selection of in-depth expeditions in Australia’s Kimberley Region, as well as Southeast Asia and Melanesia; seven exceptional voyages to the South Pacific Islands; a variety of options in South America, including two spectacular itineraries to the Chilean Fjords; and the chance to discover Alaska and the American West Coast; and more.
Silversea’s guests will embark upon these enriched voyages aboard the cruise line’s fleet of ultra-luxury expedition ships—two of which will see further enhancements in 2021. Silver Explorer will offer an even more immersive and personalised expedition experience with an increased number of Zodiacs and expedition members on-board. Silver Wind, meanwhile, will be converted into an ice-class ship; her maiden voyages in polar waters will strengthen Silversea’s expedition activity with even greater variety.
