Silversea is a world leader in terms of luxury cruising, but what makes it stand out amongst the competition? Why should you sail with Silversea? One of the most fascinating features of Silversea is the cruise lines ability to transport you back in time to the golden era of cruising, and one of the most revolutionary, exciting, and opulent ages of travel. You will find the walls adorned with art deco paintings and sculptures, symbolic of post-war glamour and decadence, and grand staircases illuminated by the stars of the night sky. Everything about Silversea signifies classic luxury, and you won’t find an atmosphere as timeless as this with any other cruise line.
One of Silversea’s prime advantages over other cruise lines is that it focuses solely upon small ship cruising. From the 100 passenger Silver Galapagos expedition ship through to the cruise line’s largest vessel, the Silver Spirit which carries 540 guests per voyage, Silversea is one of the most renowned small ship cruise lines in the world. Many first time cruisers are wary of travelling on such intimate vessels, concerned that it will be more difficult to keep busy than when travelling on the more modern, larger, ocean liners. However, what makes Silversea so special is that it combines big ship excitement and activities with the exclusive small ship ambiance and personalised service. You will find boutique shopping, enrichment classes, fully equipped spas and fitness facilities, but at the same time you’ll appreciate the almost 1:1 guest to staff ratio which ensures you get to experience the very best of cruising.
Silversea is a truly global brand and focuses on a huge variety of exotic and fascinating destinations all over the world. Round trip voyages from the UK are relatively rare, but what you will find with Silversea is a huge variety of one-way sailings to or from Southampton to amazing ports in Northern Europe, Canada and the USA, and the Spanish Mediterranean. These types of itinerary give passengers the best of both worlds - the opportunity to sail through the English Channel, catching unique glimpses of the stunning British coastline, coupled with the chance to visit far away destinations that really take your breath away. It means that the cruise line can take you further afield, broaden your horizons, and thoroughly immerse you in different cultures all within the space of just a few weeks - ideal for travellers with work commitments back home. Sample itineraries from Southampton include transatlantic sailings which take in the very best of Ireland, Iceland, and Canada’s largest province, Quebec, and Baltic cruises leaving Southampton and transiting through the Kiel Canal - a wonderful sight that only those lucky enough to be cruising on small ships get to experience in all its glory.
If you are willing to take a round trip flight as part of your cruise holiday, the possibilities with Silversea are endless. Their primary vessels travel all around the world to destinations in Africa & the Middle East, Australasia, the Americas, Europe, the Far East, and the South Pacific. Visit world renowned destinations such as Tahiti, Singapore, and Hong Kong, or experience some of the world’s best hidden secrets, such as Fanning Island, where you can pick up authentic Polynesian handicrafts, or Noumea with its beautiful French colonial architecture. Silversea also operate not one but three expedition ships which are designed to set you off on the ultimate, once-in-a-lifetime voyage of discovery. Discover the native prickly pear cactus growing wild in the Galapagos Islands or hike the icy glaciers of the Arctic – it will be something you never forget.
If you’re a seasoned cruiser and are looking for something more from your cruise holiday, Silversea’s enrichment cruises could be just the thing you’re looking for. A select number of sailings are designated ‘enrichment cruises’ which means they offer the same great advantages as regular sailings, but with a little something extra. This could be bridge tournaments overseen by players from the American Contract Bridge League, it could be cooking classes designed by the world famous Relais & Châteaux who own and operate a number of luxury hotels and restaurants all over the globe, or it could be guest speakers who want to share their knowledge and experience with you. Past lecturers have included historian Patrick Allitt, astronomy journalist Dan Benedict, and artist Verla Brown.
