Silversea Cruises Bets On Expedition Cruising With Third Ship

Silversea Cruises has signalled its intentions to take advantage of growing demand for expedition cruising with the addition of a third vessel to its expedition fleet. In March 2014, the 128-passenger Silver Discoverer will join the line, following a major refurbishment.


Formerly known as the Clipper Odyssey, she will feature 5 suite categories, an onboard restaurant serving regional cuisines and dishes inspired by Relais & Chateaux, panoramic lounge, a lecture room for in-depth stories and briefings, pool deck, fitness centre, internet cafe and a beauty salon. 12 Zodiac boats and a glass-bottom boat allow exploration from the water or remote landings.


Silver Discoverer will spend her inaugural season exploring the remote corners of Asia-Pacific. Expeditions to Micronesia, Melanesia and Polynesia, the Russian Far East, Southeast Asia, as well as New Zealand and Australia (including one of its hidden treasures, the Kimberley) will be offered. On each expedition, a team of 11 experts in fields ranging from diving and marine biology to natural history and geology, accompany passengers to provide insights and knowledge for a more fulfilling cruise.


Joining the Silversea Expedition fleet, which includes the Silver Explorer and Silver Galapagos, Silver Discoverer brings Silversea Cruises’ luxury fleet to 8 intimate yachts. Recognized as one of the industry’s top luxury lines since its debut in 1994, the Monaco-based company today boasts a global presence, with branch offices in Australia, Singapore, the UK and USA.
