Lines and their Silverseas cruise experience.
Since the earliest days of sailing, there has been something special
about traveling by ship. It’s about fresh air and sunshine. Breathtaking
vistas and 360-degree views. New cultures and delightful discoveries.
It’s unhurried and relaxing.
It is the magical experience of discovering the world and enjoying the
special ambiance of an immaculately run ship that drives everything we
do at Silversea Cruises.
Since their inception in 1994, Silver Seas has dedicated themselves to
defining the elite luxury experience – going above and beyond to achieve
the distinction of being the world’s best. Thoroughly modern ships with
every technical innovation. Spacious ocean-view suites, with sumptuous
furnishings and appointments – most with a private veranda. Inspired
cuisine and the finest wines and spirits poured with our compliments.
But it is more than these things that set up apart. It’s an
understanding of what it takes to make Silver Sea guests feel at home
Like Silversea, our commitment is to always go above and beyond. Our
passion is exceeding your expectations. Our reward is achieving
excellence in your eyes.
Silver Seas Launched its first ship, Silver Cloud in 1994, followed by
Silver Wind in 1995, Silver Shadow in 2000 and the newest ship Silver
Whisper in 2001. The fleet was purpose-built for the ultra-luxury
market, establishing a new class of smaller, intimate vessels that could
slip into more exotic ports off the beaten path.
These elite vessels were specifically designed for fewer guests, more
space and the highest levels of personalized service, delivered by
Italian officers and European staff. All-ocean view suites, most with
private veranda, and open seating dining options so guests dine when,
where and with whom they desire, add to the very special ambiance
created onboard. But what is also unique is that they incorporate the
favorite amenities found on larger ships, such as an elaborate show
lounge featuring nightly entertainment, casino, spa and state-of-the-art
As an innovator in the ultra-luxury segment, Silversea quickly became
the favorite among modern affluent travelers with its all-inclusive
pricing, and unmatched onboard product enhanced by partnerships with the
world's most respected luxury brands --Bvlgari, Moët & Chandon, Davidoff
and Relais & Châteaux.

What are the benefits of choosing Silversea’s smaller cruise ships?
Silversea’s intimate cruises mean more space and less crowds. This
equates to unparalleled ease when embarking, going ashore and
disembarking. Even more important, this allows Silversea guests to
experience close-up encounters with nature and culture, and when
onboard, to enjoy the personalized attention afforded by one-on-one
service. Some Silversea guests also appreciate that aboard a smaller
ship, they feel less risk of widespread contagious illnesses, which can
be difficult to contain and control on larger ships with more
World’s Best Luxury Cruise Line
In a global world of continually merging, multi-national conglomerates,
Silversea Cruises is owned and operated by one family — the Lefebvres of
Rome. That means genuine pride in ownership and a true Italian passion
for embracing the best of life. And that also means a deep commitment to
maintaining the high standards of cruise excellence that have been the
cornerstone of Silversea from the very beginning.
Silversea is recognized as the defining luxury cruise experience. In the
early 1990s, the Lefebvre family conceived and organized this unique,
luxury cruise line, pledging to build and operate the highest quality
ships in the ultra-luxury segment and to offer a product unlike any
other. Silversea launched its first ship in 1994, thus creating a new
niche for the ultra-luxury travel market with a class of smaller,
purpose-built vessels that could slip into more exotic ports off the
These elite and intimate ships are specifically designed for fewer
guests, featuring more space and the highest levels of personalized
service. Accommodations are amongst the largest at sea; all have ocean
views and butler service and most feature private verandas.
Dining is an exquisite affair with open-seating options so guests dine
when, where and with whom they desire. But what is also unique is that
although the ships are intimate, they incorporate amenities usually
found only on larger ships, such as an elaborate show lounge featuring
nightly entertainment, casino, and state-of-the-art spa and fitness
facilities. As an innovator in the ultra-luxury cruise segment with
all-inclusive pricing and an unmatched onboard lifestyle, Silversea is
the preferred luxury cruise line among modern affluent travelers from
across the globe – providing for a convivial cosmopolitan ambience and
yet another unique Silversea distinction.
Following the launch of Silver Cloud in 1994, Silver Wind in 1995,
Silver Shadow in 2000 and Silver Whisper in 2001, Silversea introduced
Silversea Expeditions aboard the Prince Albert II in 2008, offering the
uncommon experience of authentic adventure combined with signature
Silversea luxury. In late 2009, Silver Spirit debuted as Silversea’s
beautiful new flagship. Together, these magnificent Silversea cruise
ships offer an expansive schedule of worldwide voyages that encompass
all seven continents.
Silversea caters to the cosmopolitan world traveler and maintains branch
offices in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and Singapore.
The company’s headquarters are based in Monaco.
What other distinctions set Silversea apart?

Silversea — The Award-Winning Luxury Cruise Line
Most luxury brands began in Europe, and even today Italy is universally
acknowledged as the world-centre of style, design, and that intangible
allure called la dolce vita. There are the world’s leading fashion
designers from Armani to Ferragamo, the temptations of la cucina
Italiana, the Chiantis and Brunellos of Tuscany. And in the ultra-luxury
travel market — there’s the polished perfection of Silversea.
Onboard, the style is inspired by the golden age of cruising. Decorative
Art Deco design elements lend a sophisticated 1930s ambience to this

sky-lit main staircase, to the innovative Stars Supper Club aboard
Silver Spirit, Silversea guests sail the world surrounded by a
provocative blend of modern elegance and timeless glamour — the
sensations of history’s most romantic travel era.
The intimacy. The close-knit camaraderie. The excitement of exploring
secluded, rarely seen harbors where true adventure lies. That is why
Silversea Cruises continues to sail against the trends with intimate
ships that offer not only a richly abundant and highly personalized
onboard experience, but also a meaningful and life-enriching travel
experience for their guests.
Along with landmark destinations, the Silversea cruise ships call at
smaller harbors inaccessible to larger ships. And they can dock right in
the heart of a city while mega-vessels must anchor off shore. Which
means less tendering and more time for Silversea guests to go exploring.
