Silver Explorer Cruises

5
(from 1 verified customers)

Last refitted in 2018, and carrying just 144 passengers (and 118 crew), what can you expect onboard? Butler service, casual attire and open-seated dining, genuine hospitality, anytime access to the Captain’s bridge (weather permitting), and all-inclusive service are some of the pleasures you can expect. On shore your fare includes hosted adventures lead by scientists and destination experts.

Your fellow guests will be adventurous couples and single travellers of mature years who enjoy nature and wild life at close range. They will probably be some of the most interesting people you’ll ever meet. The ship will cater to your pampering, fitness, shopping, and contact-with-the-outside-world needs.

Accommodation is most comfortable, expanding in size and extras with the choice of eight suite levels. All staterooms feature Champagne upon arrival, fresh fruit and flowers, beverage cabinet replenished regularly, electronic entertainment and communications, regular room service, and butler services. Bedding is excellent and the marbled bathroom comes with European bath amenities and rain forest showers.

Six suites have a private balcony, and 14 have glass doors that open to a narrow French Balcony. Higher suite categories come with more space and additional amenities, such as dry cleaning and pressing, coffee machine, extended butler services, and a good amount of free usage of world-wide telephone and Internet time. The Owner’s Suite has two rooms with interconnecting door to provide a separate lounge, bedroom, and two bathrooms. This vessel has been described as ‘an exclusive floating country club’.
