Silversea Introduces Silver Discoverer, the Latest Expedition Ship in Their Fleet
Remote atolls, rich ecosystems and unknown tribes – the breathtaking expanse of the Pacific Ocean can now be explored with Silversea’s newest expedition ship.
Leading ultra-luxury cruise operator Silversea, renowned for its exotic locations and prestigious ships, is to sail even more stunning and remote destinations from 2014 with the arrival of their newest expedition ship, the 128-guest Silver Discoverer debuting in March, 2014.
Aboard Silver Discoverer, guests will be able to explore remote areas of Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia in addition to the Russian Far East, Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand, including one of its hidden treasures, the Kimberly. This vast area in North West Australia is three times the size of England and three-fifths the size of Texas.
The small-sized ship, the eighth in Silversea’s fleet, will become part of the Silversea Expeditions fleet, which includes Silver Galapagos and Silver Explorer. Since launching in 2008, Silversea Expeditions has established itself as the world’s leading, ultra-luxury expedition cruise line enabling guests to view extraordinary scenery; get closer to marine life and wildlife; as well as viewing first-hand some of the world’s last wildernesses in a manner that is sympathetic to the environment. All of this is offered aboard authentic expedition ships with some of the world’s leading expedition experts.
Silver Discoverer is undergoing a major refurbishment prior to entering service on March 1, 2014 and will consist of five suite categories. She can accommodate up to 128 guests and has extensive facilities on board including 12 Zodiac boats and a glass-bottom boat for unique exploration of marine life; a swimming pool; a beauty salon and gym; a pool grill and restaurant; a lecture room for in-depth stories and briefings about the destinations visited and a panoramic lounge.
Guests will benefit from the experience and knowledge of the highly qualified Silversea Expeditions team consisting of 11 experts, from expedition leaders, dive masters and marine biologists to historians, geologists and naturalists.
Silversea has an exclusive partnership with the world renowned Royal Geographical Society which today continues its long tradition of supporting scientific research around the globe.
