Expeditions to far-flung shores
Our expedition cruises allow the more adventurous of travellers to venture deep into remote locales. Embark upon a virtual circumnavigation of the UK or skirt the shorelines of Greenland and Canada, or reach the Geographic North Pole. Reaching the otherwise inaccessible becomes effortless, with nimble onboard watercraft binging the action closer still.
Our Expedition Fleet
Silversea’s latest arrival raises the bar for expedition cruising. This most luxurious vessel offers comforts rivalling the finest hotel, all while escorting you to the sublime wilderness of Antarctica. Enjoy a multitude of vantage points from the ship’s expansive decks and public areas.
Explore the world in pure comfort aboard the sleek Silver Wind. Refurbished in November 2021, the ship now stands as one of the most versatile in Silversea’s fleet. Four restaurants serve a range of inspired dishes, while an abundance of lounges and bars offer a relaxing atmosphere during days at sea.
The world’s only luxury icebreaker, Ponant’s Le Commandant Charcot is capable of cutting through thick ice floes and thus the first of its kind to carry passengers to the Geographic North Pole. With maximum guest numbers of 245, this small ship can access even the most remote areas with ease.
GET CLOSE TO THE ACTION
Our onboard watercraft are ready at a moment’s notice to explore secluded waterways and remote shorelines wherever we may be. From the imposing rock formations of the Kimberley to the faraway islands of the North Atlantic, our vessels are equipped to offer a range of tailor-made experiences.
From naturalists to marine biologists, our knowledgeable expedition team are leaders in their field and play a vital role in your daily discoveries as they expertly guide every foray off the ship.
The flexible nature of our expedition cruises means there is no regimented itinerary. We might linger a little longer to catch a glimpse of some wildlife, or take a different route on our onboard watercraft if the tides are changing faster than expected.
Your All-Inclusive Life On Board
Everything has been catered for during all of our expedition cruises. Our vessels each promote a casual and intimate experience, with numerous social spaces. Dine in their onboard restaurants, enjoying regional gourmet flavours complemented by fine wines.
