Review of Silver Explorer

Launched in 1989, MS Silver Explorer expedition cruise ship is owned by Silversea Cruises and operated by company's “Silversea Expeditions” division. Her sisters in the fleet are Silver Galapagos (2013) and Silver Discoverer (2014). The ship cost US $50 million to build and was last refurbished in 2014.

History - construction & ownership

Silversea Cruises is a Monaco-based privately owned luxury cruise line. It was established in 1994 by a joint venture of V-Ships, Monaco (known previously as Vlasov Group) and the Lefebvre family of Italy (Rome). Silversea pioneered all-inclusive cruising with the launch of its first ship, Silver Cloud. As of early 2014, Silversea Cruises owns eight boutique cruise vessels, each carrying only 100 to 540 guests. The business model of Silversea is to operate cruise ships in the small, ultra-luxury, all-suite category. The new all inclusive fares of the line offer such features as beverages (including selected wines), gratuities (none are allowed), travel insurance, port charges and one or more complimentary shore excursions in every itinerary.

The 6,130-ton, 132-passenger cruise ship Silver Explorer has been operated under different names before being acquired by Society Expeditions. The last names she operated under were World Discoverer and World Adventurer. In 2007 the ship was purchased by Silversea and underwent a refit at Fincantieri (Trieste) that cost multi-million pound. In June 2008 in Monte Carlo, the ship was re-christened as “ms Prince Albert II”, and later in 2011 renamed Silver Explorer in order to align with fleet’s other vessels.

The Silversea Explorer ship has been designed for navigating waters in the most remote destinations – both polar regions as well. The strengthened 1A ice-class notation hull enables ship to safely push through floes with ease. The Zodiac boats’ fleet allows passengers visit the most far away path locations.

Cruise itinerary program

Silver Explorer itinerary program is based on top luxury adventure polar cruises that last from 10 to 21 days. Silver Explorer cruises the Arctic Circle in summer with calls on Iceland, Greenland and Svalbard archipelago. During northern hemisphere winter and autumn, the Silversea’s Explorer sails off Antarctica and South America. The ports of departure include Ushuaia, Cape Town, Dakar, Lisbon, Tromso, Reykjavik.

Cabins

The Silver Explorer expedition ship is carrying up to 132 guests in 66 cabins. During World Discoverer II refit, the accommodations’ number was limited from 112 to only 66 (in 10 categories) in order to create larger staterooms. Ten are cabins, the rest – suites, all offering oceanview and butler service. Twenty of the Explorer’s cabins feature French balconies or verandahs. Upon arrival, all passengers will find flowers and a fruit basket, the beverage cabinet will be stocked to their preferences. The largest aboard Silver Explorer are the Owner's Suites (728 ft2).

Gratuities are included in fares and no other tips are needed. Other staterooms’ amenities include binoculars, personalized stationery, personal safe, flat-screen television, satellite news reception, music channels, complimentary movies and documentaries. All cabins are Wi-Fi accessible. The bathrooms are marbled, and have separate shower and tub, as well as oversized wash basin (the best option for babies). Passengers may choose from Bvlgari, Neutrogena or Ferragamo bath products.

Dining options - Food & Drinks

Silver Explorer's Restaurant offers contemporary, international cuisine with impeccable service and sophisticated elegance. Menus feature regional specialities that are unique to the cruise destination, for example, while cruising the Chilean fjords passengers can try Roasted Chilean Sea Bass. During days at sea, guests are pampered by La Collection du Monde, which is a series of signature dishes designed exclusively for the line by the Grands Chefs of Relais and Châteaux. The Restaurant provides open-seating dining, with no assigned times and tables. Guests are free to dine where, when and with whom they please.

  • Outdoor Grill.

Entertainment options - Fun & Sport

The Silver Explorer cruise ship has an Expedition Team of experts to provide guests with understanding and insight to each adventure voyage. Schedules vary from the first announced times, and it is important to be on short notice ready for getting into Zodiacs if weather conditions or wildlife sightings dictate changes. When a polar bear is first seen in the Arctic, an announcement is made, though it may be 2:00 a.m.

On Silver Explorer cruises, Silversea sends packing recommendations to passengers for the polar expeditions. Lists include items like boots, waterproof pants, gloves, thermal underwear. The Explorer’s passengers are well-traveled and well-heeled Europeans (many of them Germans) and Americans, couples mostly in their 40’s-60’s.

The Silver Explorer cruise entertainment options include martini and wine tastings, culinary demonstration and outdoor afternoon tea parties served on deck. No casino is featured onboard. Different board games are available in the lounges for play. Four Internet access stations are provided at the internet centre, as well as Wi-Fi, fully equipped library and lecture theatre.

After the Explorer’s transformation, the swimming pool was removed, as it was rarely used during ship’s polar expeditions. The ship has two whirlpools used occasionally. Fitness options include Fitness Centre and jogging track. Numerous spa facilities are offered – sauna, steam room, treatment room for facials, massages, and wraps. The treatments include Elemis Cleanse men’s facial ($129), deep-tissue massage ($116); Swedish massage ($110), and Elemis Stone Aroma therapy ($159), all great after the long hikes.

Follows the complete list of Silver Explorer lounges, clubs and other entertainment venues for kids, teens and adults.
