Experience modern luxury

With a fleet of nine small luxury ships traversing the globe, Silversea is the line with something for everyone. They focus on an intimate, personal style of travel, taking you to smaller ports and more remote locations to really explore. To this end, they have traditional luxury ships and expedition ships, which are hardier for the more extreme voyages.

The fleet
Silversea is an all-suite line, with a range of different ships:

And in their specialised expeditions fleet:

All-inclusive
In the case of Silversea, all-inclusive means that the vast majority of amenities are at no extra charge. This includes the primary restaurants (there are a few specialty restaurants with a small charge), open bars throughout the ship, butler service in every suite, a mini-bar stocked with your preference of drinks, 24-hour room service and transfers from the ship into the town centre where applicable. For expedition cruises, all zodiac tours and onshore activities are also at no extra charge, along with expedition gear.

Service
The service is a hallmark of any luxury cruise line, and Silversea prides itself on wonderful service. They have an exceptionally high staff-to-passenger ratio of almost 1:1, which certainly helps! Personalised, attentive service makes for an upscale yet laidback atmosphere, and the trained butler for each suite is a fantastic touch.

Dining
With such a range of ships, the dining venues are different across the fleet. However all meals are fine dining, thanks to top quality ingredients and a partnership with the prestigious Grands Chefs Relais & Châteaux. The main dining rooms are simply named “The Restaurant”, and additional options on various vessels include The Grill for casual dining al fresco, Indochine and Seishin for Asian flavours, Italian cuisine at La Terrazza, among others.

Entertainment
On a Silversea cruise, entertainment and enrichment go hand in hand. Lectures and seminars are often destination-focused, and there is always an interesting array of guest speakers, lessons and other opportunities to learn.

During the day, pools, gyms, spas and games like bridge offer plenty to do, and there is a bar or two on each ship for socializing, drinks and live music after dark.

Take a look at our Silversea cruise deals and you could experience this fabulous line and its adventurous itineraries for yourself. If you’ve sailed with Silversea, we’d love to hear what you think in the comments.

I have enjoyed visiting as much of the world as possible over the years. Europe and the Mediterranean are personal favourites, but there is so much to see very close to our little Australasian corner of the globe- one of my top travel experiences was snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles in New Caledonia! Cruising is a fantastic way to see it all, and we hope to make booking a cruise easier for both first-timers and old salts. From ship tips to destination news and views, we will keep you up-to-date. Happy cruising!
