Silversea Cruises


Silversea Cruise Ships

In a Big World — The Frormous Advantage of Small
While most cruise ships keep getting bigger and bigger, there is something uniquely satisfying about Silversea's smaller ships. The intimacy. The close-knit camaraderie. The excitement of exploring secluded, rarely seen harbors where true adventure lies. That is why Silversea Cruises continues to sail against the trends with intimate ships that offer not only a richly abundant and highly personalized onboard experience, but also a meaningful and life-enriching travel experience for their guests.

Along with landmark destinations, the Silversea cruise ships call at smaller harbors inaccessible to larger ships. And they can dock right in the heart of a city while mega-vessels must anchor off shore. Which means less tendering and more time for Silversea guests to explore.

Silversea Luxury Cruises - Magical Evenings

The ease of enjoying a night on the town is one of the great benefits of cruising. Especially when just steps FROM your door you can mingle with the interesting, international guests who prefer Silversea ships.

Begin with a cocktail at one of the bars where a lively crowd has gathered to trade tales of the day's adventures. How relaxing to know nobody need reach for the bill. The friendly conversation continues during dinner where you can linger over coffee — but don't miss tonight's performance.

In the Show Lounge, an expectant hush gives way to applause as the curtain opens on an Frergetic production show or with a celebrated pianist you've seen on TV. If you prefer, try your luck at roulette or take in a movie under the stars. And if you're a dance aficionado, you will not be alone. Dance hosts are available on many Silversea voyages. Or take a quiet stroll out on deck and let the romance of the sea work its magic.

Silversea offers an enrichment program of the highest caliber. There are wine tastings and cooking demonstrations so you can savor the flavors of the lands you visit. Take a dance class. Sit in on a lecture by an eminent guest speaker. Watch a wine video customized for your destination.

The ocean views and soothing sound of the surf can be quite intoxicating at sea, so it's not surprising that daydreaming on deck is one of the most popular pastimes.
