PROFILE & PHILOSOPHY
The ‘jewel in the crown’ of the Royal Caribbean Group, Silversea Cruises is the leading ultra-luxury and expedition cruise line—acclaimed for both its all-inclusive lifestyle offering and its global destination portfolio. Launched in 1994 as the world’s first all-inclusive, ultra-luxury global cruise line, Silversea officially became part of the Royal Caribbean group in July 2018 when the Group purchased two-thirds of the cruise line’s shares, subsequently acquiring the remaining shares in July 2020.
Silversea provides one of the most inclusive offerings in ultra-luxury cruising. Voyages include butler service in every suite category; a choice of restaurants on every ship, as well as in-suite dining around the clock, complimentary sustainable caviar on-demand 24/7, and premium beverages served throughout the ship; and a true door-to-door service, with private executive transfers and flights included as standard, among other inclusions. Silversea’s guests travel deep into over 900 destinations across all seven continents, enjoying a curated selection of immersive experiences in the world’s most remarkable places.
In addition to four ultra-luxury expedition ships, Silversea counts six classic vessels in its fleet. Among the most comfortable and spacious ships at sea, each of the cruise line’s ships enjoys an atmosphere of elegance, conviviality, and whispered luxury. Silversea has recently welcomed three ships to its fleet since June 2020 – Silver Origin, Silver Moon and Silver Dawn – bringing the fleet’s tally to 10.
Silversea Cruises is recognized as an innovator in the ultra-luxury cruise industry, offering guests large-ship amenities aboard its intimate, all-suite vessels: Silver Dawn, Silver Shadow, Silver Whisper, Silver Spirit, Silver Muse and Silver Moon – all designed to offer an atmosphere of conviviality and casual elegance.
With the inclusion of the expedition ships Silver Origin, Silver Wind, Silver Explorer, and Silver Cloud, Silversea’s Expedition itineraries encompass all seven continents and feature worldwide luxury cruises to destinations including South America, the Caribbean, the Galapagos, both Polar Regions (Antarctica, Arctic & Greenland), and hundreds of fascinating destinations in between. All destinations operated by Silversea can be found here.
Our ships in our Expedition fleet are purpose-built for navigating waters in the most remote realms of the world and beyond – in supreme comfort, safety, and all-inclusive luxury. Hosting a mere 100 to 274 guests in all-suite accommodations, these ships are intimate in scale yet huge on adventure. Hosted by up to 28 expedition staff on every voyage, each ship comes equipped with brand-new Zodiacs, kayaks, snorkel gear, and all the other essentials necessary for your clients to experience true 360º immersion in fascinating, far-flung locales.

FUTURE OPENINGS & PROJECTS
Building on the ongoing sustainability efforts of the Group, Silversea will take delivery of two Nova-class ships in 2023 and 2024, respectively, pushing boundaries in sustainable cruise travel, with pioneering technology that will reduce the ships’ carbon footprints. Silver Nova will be the first cruise ship to use fuel cells to provide 100% of the power while at the port. It will operate using a trio of power sources, including a fuel cell system, battery technology, and dual-fuel engines that use liquefied natural gas (LNG) as the main fuel.

And why not add a little extra sparkle?
Every guest aboard a Silversea ultra-luxury cruise gets ultra-luxury service. But, as larger suites can accommodate larger parties, why not ask the butler to organise a little in-suite cocktail party? After all, great travel experiences are so much better when shared with like-minded friends. From drawing a scented bath to making sure everything your clients want is looked after, our butler service is simply the best there is. But perhaps the greatest gift of our butler service is knowing that they are there when they need them and mysteriously disappear when they don’t.
