Silversea Cruises

About Silversea Cruises

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 five 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 four ships to its fleet since June 2020 – Silver OriginSilver Moon and Silver Dawn, Silver Endeavour – bringing the fleet’s tally to 11.

Silversea Cruises continues to innovate in the ultra-luxury and expedition cruise industries. The launch of Silver Moon in October 2020 marked the introduction of Silversea’s groundbreaking S.A.L.T. culinary programme. S.A.L.T. enables travellers to dive deep into the world’s richest culinary cultures, taking regional food and drink as lenses through which guests can engage with the soul of a destination. Aboard Silver Dawn, which joined the fleet in November 2021, guests enjoy the Otium wellness programme—an indulgent innovation in wellness at sea, which, inspired by the Roman lifestyle, focuses on pampering and pleasure over sacrifice and delayed gratification.

In July 2022, Silversea welcomed Silver Endeavour to its fleet—the world’s most luxurious expedition ship, designed specifically to take travellers to the world’s most remote destinations, including both Polar Regions. Complete with state of the art amenities and the highest space-to-guest ratio in expedition cruising, Silver Endeavour strengthens Silversea’s position as the leading ultra-luxury expedition cruise line, broadening the industry’s most diverse polar offering.

Building on the ongoing sustainability efforts of the Group, Silversea will take delivery of two Nova-class ships - Silver Nova and Silver Ray - in 2023 and 2024, respectively, pushing boundaries in sustainable cruise travel, with pioneering technology that will reduce the ships’ carbon footprints. ‘Project Evolution’ will be the first cruise ship to use fuel cells to provide 100% of power while at 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.

Complimentary beverages everywhere

Enjoy a glass or bottle of champagne, wine, beer, or premium spirits on the house. We’ll also ensure you’re well stocked with water, juices and soft drinks in the public bars and your suite. Our Silversea promise is to keep your mini-bar full of your favourite drinks – alcoholic beverages (including wine, spirits and mixers) or cold bottles of water for hot, sunny days! Your butler will replenish daily, but if you want a little extra, ask, and we’ll ensure you get exactly what you want. No wish is too big or too small. Yes, really!
