Silversea

'Cruise Circle says..'

Silversea is committed to offering superlative service and an exceptional on-board experience, with large-ship amenities aboard intimate, beautifully appointed vessels. With an accent on space and privacy, the atmosphere is one of unhurried elegance.

All-suite, ocean-facing accommodation comes with butler service and superior extras, from designer cosmetics to a bar stocked according to preference.

Exquisite à la carte dining is served in association with Relais & Châteaux; Silversea’s preferred culinary partner, and complimentary champagne, fine wines and spirits are served throughout the ships.

All on-board gratuities are also included. With unique itineraries, including expeditions to some of the most remote places on earth, Silversea reaches all seven continents and sails to more destinations than any other cruise line. So with unique levels of choice, exquisite inclusions and outstanding service, Silversea truly offers the ultimate experience in luxury cruising. 

Who goes on Silversea cruise ships?

Silversea caters to Baby Boomers, affluent and often retired, with the leisure and the resources to make Silversea their cruise line of choice. Silversea Expeditions also appeals to that demographic, as well as younger professionals with a desire for active cruising that includes posh cabins and stellar service alongside Zodiac expeditions, snorkelling excursions and in-port hikes. Shorter classic voyages also tend to draw younger passengers. About 60 percent of passengers onboard come from the Americas, the rest from international markets.


Do I have to dress up on a Silversea cruise?

Yes, if you are going on a classic cruise ship; no if you're sailing on a luxury expedition cruise. The classic ships divide evenings among casual resort wear, informal attire (for men, this means a jacket, tie optional, and women wear dresses or trouser suits) and formal nights when eveningwear for women is an evening gown or cocktail dress and men wear tuxedos, dinner jackets or dark suits, and a tie is required. The dress code is more casual on the expedition vessels, and there are no formal nights.


Is everything free on Silversea cruises?

Silversea cruises are fairly inclusive, with the only extras being shore excursions (except on Silversea's expedition cruises on which they're included in the cruise price), shop purchases, spa and beauty treatments, and send-out laundry. Some speciality restaurants also cost extra (and caviar on the room service menu). Cruise fares include gratuities, unlimited beverages (soft and alcoholic), internet access and round trip transportation into town in most ports. Most itineraries also include transfers to/from the ship, and some even include complimentary round trip economy airfare.


What are Silversea's most popular activities?

Onboard, each Silversea cruise ship has a pool and hot tubs that see a lot of action, and the spa gets a lot of use, as well. Silversea cruisers also enjoy attending lectures on the culture and history of the destinations they visit, and like to spend time in the library. Evening shows, which range from opera-themed to swing-era classics, also draw a crowd. When in port, most Silversea cruisers opt for one of the line's many shore excursion offerings. Expedition cruises bring cruisers together with experts to lead hiking, Zodiac, snorkelling, diving and other small group excursions.


Best for...

Sophisticated international travellers who enjoy unusual destinations yet want a hint of traditional formality, complete with butler service

What's Included

Butler Service in Every Suite. All guests are pampered equally aboard our ships. We are the only cruise line in the world to include butler service in every suite, in every category. A staff-to-guest ratio of nearly one to one ensures that your every wish is fulfilled with earnest precision, from the concierge who can customise your voyage to the butler who serves your breakfast in suite.

Beverages in-Suite and throughout the Ship. Select wines, premium spirits, speciality coffees, as well as bottled water, juices and soft drinks are complimentary in all bars and lounges. Your suite’s mini-bar is also stocked with your preferred beverages including wines and spirits. Your butler will replenish them upon request.

Gourmet Dining. Delicious meals created with thought and panache, discerningly elaborated menus with perfectly balanced wine choices and a relaxed atmosphere with erudite friends – dining aboard any Silversea ship is the ultimate experience for people who only want superlatives. It just doesn’t get any better than this. Why not ask the couple you just met to join you? With our open-seating policy, arrive at your leisure and dine with whomever you please.

Gratuities. Our unwavering commitment to flawless service requires an attitude that is totally focused on the part of every member of the staff. Their professional training is readily apparent from the waiter who keeps your water glass filled to the chef who prepares your favourite soufflé à la minute. Yet surprisingly gratuities are not expected. They’re included in your fare. *Please note: Beauty salon and spa treatment gratuities not included.
