The Home of Luxury Cruising

Silversea‘s purpose-built Silver Explorer expedition ship (formerly the Prince Albert II) has been designed specifically for navigating waters in some of the world’s most remote destinations, including both of earth‘s polar regions. A strengthened hull with a Lloyd’s Register ice-class notation (1A) for passenger vessels enables Silver Explorer to safely push through ice floes with ease. A fleet of Zodiac boats allows Silversea Expedition guests to visit even the most off-the-beaten path locations and an expert Expedition Team provides insight and understanding to each unforgettable Silver Explorer cruise adventure.

The Silver Explorer is the newest in the Silversea fleet, specifically built to sail the most far flung waters of the world. The Silver Explorer provides an unusual oasis of luxury in some of the most remote oceans, including those in the Arctic and Antarctic.

Only 132 fortunate guests can sail aboard the Silver Explorer at one time, to experience some of the most beautiful and wild environments in the world. Life aboard is akin to that of an expedition, and not just a cruise.

The facilities on board are just as luxurious and wide ranging as those aboard any of the other luxury vessels sailing under the Silversea banner. Guests are afforded a superb lively atmosphere created by like-minded passengers. During the day time, should guests tire of the stunning surroundings, there is a full service spa to enjoy, including a beauty salon, fitness centre, sauna and two whirlpools on the top deck. During the evening house, there is live entertainment in the lounges, and the ever-popular Humidor, where guests can enjoy fine cigars and cognacs.


Accommodation is in beautiful suites and staterooms, offering spacious and private rooms for every one on board. No expense is spared across the entire ship. A trip aboard the Silver Explorer is undoubtedly unique, her fantastic structure and size taking people to places they could only imagine before stepping inside and sailing away.
