Silversea Cruises is an award-winning ultra-luxury cruise line with intimate, smaller-size ships that enable them access to more remote ports and better positioning in many ports where larger ships are unable to dock. Silversea sails to all 7 continents and over 900 destinations with their extensive itinerary offerings all year long.

Their ships range in size from 51 to 364 suites with nearly one staff member for every guest and dedicated butler service in all suites. Whether you think you need a butler or not, once you’ve had one, you’ll always want one since they take care of anything and everything you may require during your sailing including unpacking and packing, making shore excursion reservations, dining reservations, serving you drinks, canapes, anything and everything your heart may desire!

They have completely inclusive door-to-door options with air and all transfers included, port-to-port options where you can plan air and transfers separately, and they have even come up with a lower-priced cruise only fare option that still includes more than most cruise ship companies with complete inclusivity on board the ship but enables more freedom for clients to choose their own preferences with or without shore excursions being added. They call this their new “Essential” fare option.

Their “door-to-door” option is the first in the cruise line industry that actually provides private executive transfers from your home to the airport and return following your sailing with them. They also are able to provide all-inclusive air with these packages with the ability to upgrade to premium economy and business class where available. Of course, excursions are also included as well, generally with one available in each and every port during the cruise.

Silversea is even offering zero extra supplement on select sailings for those wanting to have their own accommodation from a single standpoint. Not an easy thing to find these days especially with an all-inclusive luxury alternative such as Silversea.

Silversea has five purpose-built Expedition ships that are able to navigate waters in the most remote areas of the world including Antarctica, the Arctic, the Galapagos and more. These ships range from 100 to 274 passengers in all-suite accommodations. They’re hosted by up to 28 dedicated expedition staff on each voyage. Each ship comes with Zodiacs, kayaks, snorkel gear, and any other essentials required for a truly immersive experience in any of the destinations where these ships sail.

Even your mini bar will be kept full of all your favorite wine, beer, spirits and mixers, whatever your preference may be.

On four of their ships including Silver Moon, Silver Dawn, Silver Nova and Silver Ray, their regionally inspired S.A.L.T. Bar, Kitchen and Laboratory enables a ‘deep-dive culinary immersion beyond anything you’ve ever experienced aboard a cruise ship’.  The meaning of this term, S.A.L.T. is “Sea and Land Taste” and allows passengers to experience the lifeblood of the destination. The S.A.L.T. concept integrates food, culture, and destinations like never before allowing guests to engage with people and flavors of each and every place they visit. There are workshops, tastings, cooking classes, and hands-on demonstrations enabling a deep dive into the soul of the region.

You can have a personal trainer, or indulge in amazing spa, wellness, massage options and beauty options and so much more.

Overall, Silversea offers an amazing value proposition with their three different ways to book either including everything, enabling an air credit to exclude your air bookings or going cruise only and having the freedom to do your own thing with shore excursions in any of the ports. They have so many amazing itineraries to offer worldwide that there’s bound to be one or many that will tweak your fancy!
