Silversea’s purposefully designed expedition ships have the strength to navigate Antarctic waters, the amenities and comforts of a luxury cruise ship, and the ability to enter small ports that larger cruise ships can’t access. The expedition cruise voyages are focused on wildlife, photography, cultural encounters, scenery and more in some of the world’s most exotic destinations.
Rather than simply “seeing” a destination, expedition cruise guests can snorkel with sea turtles in the Galapagos, photograph Arctic glaciers up close from a Zodiac, hike along volcanoes in Micronesia and visit remote villages in Panama’s jungles. Expert guides, attentive crew members, spacious suites, fine dining and a luxurious ship complete the incredible expedition cruise experience.
For photographers, nature enthusiasts, artists, adventurers and travelers looking to go beyond merely “seeing” a destination, an expedition cruise is an immersive, experiential and unforgettable way to explore the world. Contact us for the full list of their itineraries and destinations!
