Silver Explorer

Luxury expedition ship

Designed specifically for extreme destinations, the Silver Explorer effortlessly finds its way through bays full of ice floes. However, the robust construction of this expedition ship is completely hidden behind a stylish interior with beautiful details. The spacious suites are atmospheric and extremely comfortable, and you always have ocean views. In addition, you can count on excellent and personal service, which will make your stay on this ship particularly enjoyable. The Silver Explorer is one of the most luxurious cruise ships that sail the seas around the poles.

Without paying attention to the time, you can enjoy the panoramic views in one of the lounges, or silently look out over the icelandic landscapes from the observation deck. In the restaurant you are welcome at any time for breakfast, extensive lunch or à la carte dinner. This way you are free to complete the time you spend on board as desired.

The members of the professional expedition team are driven to give you the trip of a lifetime. They transfer their passion during lectures and briefings, and they accompany all excursions outside the ship. Per zodiac you glide through the clear seawater between icebergs, it's an impressive experience when whales come close to the surface. On land you get plenty of time to observe penguins, fur seals and seabirds up close. It is wonderful to return afterwards on board the warm ship and give in to fatigue after the intense experience, by warming up in the sauna, or by relaxing during a benevolent massage. Or maybe you just want to hold on to the feeling of euphoria for a while, and you'll settle down in one of the lounges to talk to your travel companions.
