A Silversea polar cruise on board Silver Explorer is the most luxurious way to truly experience the Arctic and Antarctica.
Silversea Antarctics Cruise Silver Explorer was built as an expedition vessel with ice strengthened hull. Silversea, purchased it and undertook a complete refurbishment to convert it into a luxury vessel with standards of comfort and service to match other ships in the Silversea fleet, including cuisine by Relais & Chateaux, staterooms and suites with marble baths and butler service. Your Silversea polar cruise on Silver Explorer is also fully inclusive of all food and non-premium liquor (although there is a high threshold before a premium standard is reached!).
All 66 staterooms and suites on board Silver Explorer are of a high standard. There is one restaurant serving buffet or table service breakfasts and lunches and a la carte dinners; room service is available at all times. There is also a lecture theatre, a well stocked library, a lounge bar with humidor and a lounge/observation deck.
Shore and ice excursions from Silver Explorer are taken on board inflatable zodiacs with experienced expedition staff. These experts, internationally recognised in wildlife, photography and polar travel, offer lectures and commentary throughout the voyage.
Otherwise, entertainment on board Silver Explorer is limited to an evening pianist, some home-grown performances by the crew and in-cabin satellite TV and DVD. There is also the opportunity to relax in the small spa and fitness centre, the sauna or one of two decktop hot tubs.
A Silversea polar cruise is ideal for those who want to experience all the aspects of a polar adventure including ice, wildlife and the elements, combined with a stimulating educational and enrichment programme but always return to relax in the ultimate comfort and convenience. Silversea’s Silver Explorer offers adventure with style!
