Silversea offers an all-suite, multi-award-winning 'small ship' experience, undisturbed by pretence or formality. Luxurious and elegant in an understated way, it is a collection of all the small details, the unseen intangibles that make a Silversea voyage so much more. Guests are attended to by a crew that makes a genuine effort to know each individual and anticipate every need, while structured activities are available but tend toward the relaxing and cerebral, with announcements, games and contests the exception rather than the rule. At sea and in port, days are casual, whilst evenings are low-key but elegant.

Created in the early 1990s by the Lefebvre family of Rome, the Silversea name was chosen to suggest quality, luxury and the romance of the sea. Encouraged by the initial success of its 17,400-ton ship Silver Wind (each taking up to 296 guests), the line added another set of larger twins; Silver Shadow in 2000 and Silver Whisper in 2001 (both 28, 258 tons and carrying 382 guests apiece). These younger ships are similar in design to their predecessors but offer larger bathrooms and wardrobes and more top-grade suites. Silver Spirit, which at 36,000 tons and a 540-guest capacity is the largest of the fleet and offers a choice of six dining venues, an 8,300ft² spa, a resort-style pool and sumptuous guest suites – nearly all with private balconies. The recent addition of  Silver Muse makes for the most luxurious of the fleet, boasting eight gourmet restaurants, a decadent spa and five-star facilities throughout, while Silver Explorer has been expertly designed for navigating the icy polar regions for those with an adventurous side.

The ships enjoy a crew-to-passenger ratio of almost one-to-one and enough space to hide yourself away in one of numerous nooks and crannies, should you desire. Nevertheless, Silversea generally attracts a gregarious gathering of sophisticated travellers, all of whom appreciate the finer things in life.

A selection of voyages feature the exclusive Relais & Châteaux Interactive Cooking School. Perfect for those who like to cook, this entertaining experience allows guests to learn new cooking techniques and sample delectable dishes with expert Chefs. Please ask your Travel Consultant for details.
