Silversea ships

While most cruise ships keep getting bigger and bigger, there is something uniquely satisfying about Silversea's luxurious small ship cruises. The intimacy. The close-knit camaraderie. The excitement of exploring secluded, rarely seen harbours 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 personalised onboard experience, but also a meaningful and life-enriching travel experience for their guests.

Along with landmark destinations, Silversea luxury cruise ships call at smaller harbours 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 go exploring.

Silver Cloud
Silver Cloud

As the inaugural ship for Silversea Cruises, Silver Cloud epitomises everything that is Silversea. Designed to provide the most intimate of sailing experiences, a Silver Cloud cruise provides 296 privileged guests with the luxury of space and the ability to slip into exotic ports off the beaten path.
Silver Explorer
Silver Explorer

Silversea's purpose-built Silver Explorer expedition ship (formerly the Prince Albert II) has been designed specifically for navigating waters in some of the world's most remote destinations, including both of earth's polar regions.
Silver Galapagos
Silver Galapagos

Meet the newest addition to Silversea's fleet of ultra-luxury ships: the 100-guest Silver Galapagos. With sleek lines and a proven skill for navigating the waterways throughout the Galápagos Islands, she is naturally suited for in-depth explorations of this spectacular region
Silver Shadow
Silver Shadow

Silversea's Millennium Class ships – Silver Shadow and her sister ship Silver Whisper – are built with proportions slightly larger in size than the two earlier ships, yet retain the same level of genuine hospitality.
Silver Spirit
Silver Spirit

The newest vessel in the Silversea family, Silver Spirit offers the distinctive luxuries and celebrated lifestyle Silversea guests adore, plus enticing enhancements including Stars Supper Club, an Asian-themed restaurant, an expansive 8,300-square-foot spa, a resort-style pool, four whirlpools, and the largest suites in the Silversea fleet — 95% with private verandas.
Silver Whisper
Silver Whisper

Taking Silversea's award-winning concept of all-suite luxury to the next level, these two sister ships – Silver Shadow and Silver Whisper – are slightly larger, yet retain the familiarity and intimacy of Silversea's two earlier ships.
Silver Wind
Silver Wind

Second in the Silversea fleet, Silver Wind is much like Silver Cloud and a shining example of intimate, elegant cruising. As spacious as a grand hotel, as gracious as a best friends' home, the lifestyle on board Silver Wind is one of fewer guests, more space and features Silversea's renowned personalised service
Silver Discoverer
Silver Discoverer

Silversea's third expedition ship is expertly engineered to explore the most isolated archipelagos of the Pacific. Her small size and shallow draft allow close-up access to rugged coasts well beyond the reach of ordinary vessels. And she has been newly refurbished to help guests maximize their experience and build a genuine connection with the regions they visit.

Ian Warren – 19-05-2011 – Silversea - Silver Spirit

Previously my only experience of Silversea was a visit to Prince Albert, but I wanted to see what one of their newer ships was like.


Ian Warren – 10-05-2010 – Silversea - Prince Albert II

I wasn't really sure what to expect with regards to how big (or small) she would be, but I was a little surprised that she looked so small. As Chris Roberts said to me, "she looks like a lifeboat from Oasis of the Seas".
