    • SILVERSEA World Cruises

      Silversea Cruises

      World's Best Luxury Cruise Line In a global world of continually merging, multi-national conglomerates, Silversea Cruises is owned and operated by one family - the Lefebvres of Rome. That means genuine pride in ownership and a true Italian passion for embracing the best of life. And that also means a deep commitment to maintaining the high standards of cruise excellence that have been the cornerstone of Silversea from the very beginning. Silversea is recognized as the defining luxury cruise experience. In the early 1990s, the Lefebvre family conceived and organized this unique, luxury cruise line, pledging to build and operate the highest quality ships in the ultra-luxury segment and to offer a product unlike any other. Silversea launched its first ship in 1994, thus creating a new niche for the ultra-luxury travel market with a class of smaller, purpose-built vessels that could slip into more exotic ports off the beaten path. These elite and intimate ships are specifically designed for fewer guests, featuring more space and the highest levels of personalized service. Accommodations are amongst the largest at sea; all have ocean views and butler service and most feature private verandas. Dining is an exquisite affair with open-seating options so guests dine when, where and with whom they desire. But what is also unique is that although the ships are intimate, they incorporate amenities usually found only on larger ships, such as an elaborate show lounge featuring nightly entertainment, casino, and state-of-the-art spa and fitness facilities. As an innovator in the ultra-luxury cruise segment with all-inclusive pricing and an unmatched onboard lifestyle, Silversea is the preferred luxury cruise line among modern affluent travelers from across the globe - providing for a convivial cosmopolitan ambience and yet another unique Silversea distinction. Silversea caters to the cosmopolitan world traveler and maintains branch offices in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and Singapore. The company's headquarters are based in Monaco. FLEET OF REMARKABLE SHIPSSilversea Cruise Ships In a Big World - The Enormous Advantage of Small While most cruise ships keep getting bigger and bigger, there is something uniquely satisfying about Silversea's smaller ships. The intimacy. The close-knit camaraderie. The excitement of exploring secluded, rarely seen harbors where true adventure lies. That is why Silversea Cruises continues to sail against the trends with intimate ships that offer not only a richly abundant and highly personalized onboard experience, but also a meaningful and life-enriching travel experience for their guests. Along with landmark destinations, the Silversea cruise ships call at smaller harbors inaccessible to larger ships. And they can dock right in the heart of a city while mega-vessels must anchor off shore. Which means less tendering and more time for Silversea guests to explore. Silver Cloud Beginning Silversea's tradition of excellence, Silver Cloud is a special place many guests return to again and again. 296 Guests, 222 Crew Members Silver Wind Silver Wind is one of the most intimate ships afloat, yet large enough to have multiple entertainment venues, plenty of deck space, an expanded spa, wine bar and more. 296 Guests, 222 Crew Members Silver ShadowThe luxuries of a private yacht, the amenities of a country club and the fine services of an exclusive hotel are yours to enjoy aboard Silver Shadow. 382 Guests, 302 Crew Members Silver WhisperEach ocean-view suite provides a sumptuous retreat. Each public space is intimate yet inviting. Silver Whisper wraps you in a warm feeling of home upon the seas of the Earth. 382 Guests, 302 Crew Members Silver SpiritHaving made her debut in December 2009, Silver Spirit is Silversea's beautiful new flagship. Experience for yourself the ultimate travel indulgence aboard Silver Spirit. 540 Guests, 376 Crew Members Silver ExplorerWith an ice-strengthened hull and unmatched level of luxury, the Silver Explorer offers an authentic expedition experience unlike any other. 132 Guests, 117 Crew Members Silver GalapagosThe newest addition to Silversea’s expedition fleet, the Silver Galapagos. Naturally suited for in-depth exploration throughout the spectacular region of the Galapagos Islands. 100 Guests, 75 Crew Members Silver Discoverer The newest addition to Silversea’s expedition fleet, the Silver Discoverer is expertly engineered to explore the most isolated archipelagos of the Pacific. 120 Guests, 96 Crew Members
