What do you think of when you hear the term luxury cruising? Do ocean-view suites come to mind? How about butler service and private verandas?
Does the idea of luxury cruising mean having the ability to travel to more than 800 destinations across all seven continents?
If you’ve answered yes to any or all of these, then you’ll simply fall in love with Silversea.
Where does Silversea venture to?
Africa. Indian Ocean. Antarctica. Alaska. Asia. Arctic. Asia. Australia & New Zealand. Galapagos Islands. Micronesia, Melanesia & Polynesia. Northern Europe & British Isles. Russian Far East. South America.
Silversea’s small luxury ships travel to more destinations than any other cruise line on the planet. Their unique, ultimate-luxury ships are able to sail up narrow waterways in the heart of a city or tie up right at the pier, unlike other ships that must anchor off shore.
But the intimate size of Silversea’s luxury ships is just the tip of the iceberg of what makes this family-owned cruise company the best in class.
All inclusive cruises: Silversea remains true to their word
Finding luxury on a cruise ship isn’t always that easy. Most travelers long for an intimate setting; however, intimacy on a sea vessel could mean cramped living quarters.
Not with Silversea.
Five ships are used for Silversea’s general cruises, each holding anywhere from 296 to 540 guests. Despite their smaller sizes, these ships boast some of the highest space ratios at sea, yet still offer luxurious amenities including first-class restaurants, show lounges, health spas, and fully equipped gyms.
Each suite boasts ocean views, as well as:
- Flat screen TVs
- Full marble baths
- In-suite bars and refrigerators stocked with complimentary beverages
- The option to personalize your suite (including bed size, type of mattress, style of toiletries and much, much more)
Silversea is also the only cruise line in the world to include butler service in every suite.
Silversea offers at least four dining choices on every ship, and passengers get to choose from an extensive section of complimentary red and white wines. And, with its unique open-seating policy, Silversea allows you to arrive to your meals at your leisure and dine with whomever you please.
What about gratuity?
Many cruise lines promote their all-inclusive offerings; however, many of these offerings fall short of the all-inclusive aspect.
Silversea’s all-inclusive package lives up to its word, including when it comes to gratuities. From the waiter who keeps your water glass filled, to the chef who prepares your meals, you’ll constantly get treated to first-class personal service – yet gratuities are never expected.
They’re included in your fare.
Feed your adventurous spirit with Silversea Expeditions
Silversea also offers the opportunity to take travelers to the most remote regions of the planet.
Do you long to see an orangutan in the wild? Want to carve through icebergs and glaciers? Silvesea’s three expedition ships are designed to get you up close and personal to these remote areas. Each ship features:
- Ice-strengthened hulls
- Fleet of Zodiac inflatable boats (to allow passengers to see off-the-beaten-paths locations)
- Expedition Teams, made up of trained professionals who’ll offer insight and understanding to each journey
While these expeditions focus on the remote corners of the world, luxury is never compromised. As is the hallmark of the Silversea experience, all suites boast butler service and ocean views, as well as:
- Complimentary beverages in-suite and throughout the ship
- Open-seating dining options
- Complimentary expedition gear
- In-suite dining and room service
- Gratuities are always included with your initial fare
In addition to these amenities, Silversea Expeditions also provides onboard lectures, recaps and briefings from eminent naturalists, geologists, biologists, historians, and ornithologists, all of whom are onboard to help you get the most out of your adventure.
