Leading, ultra-luxury cruise operator Silversea, is to sail to even more remote and stunning destinations from April 2014 with the arrival of its newest expedition ship, the 120-guest Silver Discoverer. Guests will be able to explore the Kimberley; remote areas of Micronesia, Melanesia and Polynesia; the Russian Far East; South-East Asia; and the varied landscapes of New Zealand.
The small-sized ship, the eighth in Silversea’s fleet, will become part of the Silversea Expedition fleet, joining the Silver Explorer and Silver Galapagos. Since launching in 2008, Silversea Expeditions has established itself as the leading expedition cruiseline, enabling guests to view extraordinary scenery, get close to marine and wildlife, and explore some of the world’s last wildernesses in a luxury, eco-conscious manner.
Silver Discoverer is undergoing a major refurbishment prior to entering service on 2 April 2014 and will offer five suite categories. She can accommodate up to 120 guests and has extensive facilities on board including: 12 Zodiac boats and a glass-bottom boat for unique exploration of marine life; a swimming pool; a gym and beauty salon; a restaurant and pool grill; a lecture room for in-depth stories and briefings about the destinations; and a panoramic lounge.
Guests will benefit from the huge knowledge and experience of the highly-qualified Silversea Expeditions team consisting of 11 experts, from expedition leaders, dive masters and marine biologists to historians, geologists and naturalists.
Enzo Visone, CEO of Silversea, commented: “It’s fitting that, in our 20th anniversary year, our newest ship will continue the Silversea tradition of reaching some of the most remote areas of the world. Silver Discoverer will bring our guests even closer to dramatic landscapes, historic locations, and ecologically important destinations – all in the comfort of one of the finest expedition ships operating today with all the trappings that our guests have come to expect of Silversea.”
