The WOW of Ultra-Luxury Travel by Small Ship with Silversea

For 30 years, Silversea has been elevating global travel with an unparalleled all-inclusive experience, and innovative concepts that deliver transformational “wow” moments all over the world.

Even for the most well-traveled sybarites, the next great adventure is always lingering at the edges of the imagination – often in places far beyond the well-trodden path. An insatiable curiosity to go deeper into an exotic culture, a fabled history or an awe-inspiring landscape is what drives Silversea – the leading ultra-luxury and expedition travel brand – to reveal the world’s authentic beauty aboard its sophisticated fleet of all-suite small ships. For 30 years, this renowned line has been elevating global travel with an unparalleled all-inclusive experience that includes complimentary shore excursions in every port, pioneering new ships of extraordinary design, and innovative concepts that deliver transformational “wow” moments all over the world.


Small, All-Suite Ships & Global Itineraries

Silversea’s ships are small by design. They can host far more than the 50 to 364 suites found on its vessels fleetwide, which allows for extraordinary spaciousness and an unmatched range of restaurants, lounges and bars, and entertainment venues. From the culinary experiences and conversations onboard to the curated excursions and intimate connections ashore, a voyage with Silversea promises to set the stage for some of your most engaging discoveries.


With Silversea, no two itineraries are the same meaning you have the luxury of choice when deciding where and when you wish to explore. Each voyage is carefully curated to show you both iconic destinations and hidden gems off the beaten track. The line’s decades-long relationships in all corners of the world take you deeper into the authentic spirit of every destination you visit, allowing for more personal connections with the people, cultures and cuisines that make each place unique.


Signature Hallmarks

Elegantly spacious suites become your home-away-from-home no matter where in the world you find yourself; all are generously appointed and most feature a private teak veranda. An industry-leading staff-to-guest service ratio of nearly 1:1 throughout each ship ensures your every need is met, and personal butler service for every suite delivers the most bespoke experience – from unpacking your luggage and curating your suite amenities to serving breakfast on your veranda, confirming various reservations and more.


Gastronomy in all its forms – elegant or casual venues, in-suite dining or hands-on learning – is a signature hallmark of the Silversea experience with exquisite options on every ship. On board, it means myriad restaurants serving everything from fine French cuisine and masterful Asian creations to relaxed Italian fare showcasing the line’s Italian heritage – all served with curated wine suggestions. Ashore, it means complimentary and optional culinary experiences including the line’s acclaimed S.A.L.T. program.


The Flavors of S.A.L.T.

Exploring faraway lands through food and wine offers a sensory journey into the history, traditions and identity of a destination, and Silversea’s highly immersive S.A.L.T. (Sea And Land Taste) programme connects you to people and their cultures through cuisine. Conceived by Adam Sachs, former editor of Saveur Magazine and a three-time James Beard Journalism Award winner, S.A.L.T. is an onboard ecosystem of gastronomic discovery AND immersive excursions ashore.


Available aboard Silver Moon, Silver Dawn, Silver Nova, and soon Silver Ray, S.A.L.T invites you to take a trip to the S.A.L.T. Bar and Kitchen and discover craft cocktails and dishes inspired by your destination. A visit to the S.A.L.T. Lab serves up local recipes at a hands-on cooking class. And on a S.A.L.T. excursion ashore, you might find yourself spending the day with one of Norway’s most famous chefs, discovering the secrets of a working organic farm in Greece or trying your hand at pastry-making in Sicily. Now how’s that for “wow?!”


Introducing: Ships of Light

Innovative, immersive, and among the most environmentally conscious ships ever built, Silversea’s Nova class ships Silver Nova (August 2023) and her sister Silver Ray (July 2024) invite you to see the world in a whole new way. With their boldly asymmetrical design, unprecedented use of glass, and wide-open decks, these cutting-edge “ships of light” will connect you more closely with each destination where the boundaries between sea and sky, ship and land, melt away with uninterrupted vistas from every venue.


Silver Nova and Silver Ray expand on the signature hallmarks of Silversea with extraordinary space; the greatest variety of suites – 13 in all including new aft suites that look out on stunning 270º views; the broadest array of bars, lounges and restaurants (including a broadened offering of green cuisine) in ultra-luxury cruising; and an unparalleled range of social venues including Otium spa, delving into the ancient Roman art of comfort and wellness, and the revolutionary S.A.L.T. program described above. Unique to the Nova class ships is a S.A.L.T. Chef’s Table. Hosted nightly for up to 18 guests, this intimate, interactive dining experience features a curated menu of small plates with wine pairings and craft cocktails highlighting the region explored.


From now through early 2026, Silver Nova follows a global route from South America to Alaska, Asia and Australia & New Zealand. Upon her debut this summer, Silver Ray will make her “home” in the Mediterranean with winter seasons spent exploring the Caribbean, South and Central America.


Silver Wind: On Expedition to Northern Europe

For discovery of a more adventurous nature, you might consider an expedition voyage to exploring Northern Europe and the British Isles aboard the intimate Silver Wind in summer 2024 and 2025. Welcoming just 274 guests, this ice-class vessel is timelessly elegant and luxuriously relaxed, yet outfitted with all the discovery equipment and complimentary expedition gear you need to embark on a thrilling expedition.


Equal parts magic, mystery, and midnight sun, Northern Europe offers variety and discovery at every turn. From ancient Viking relics in the Faroes to the turquoise geothermal springs of Iceland; from Copenhagen’s trending culinary meccas to Norway’s misty fjords and folk traditions, this is a region laden with landmark capital cities, miniscule villages and mountains cloaked in emerald forest.


Discover the rugged charms of the British Isles: its famed gardens and weather-worn cliffs; pristine beaches and pastoral meadows; windswept isles and maritime landscapes. Explore UNESCO-listed history and legendary coasts blanketed in bloom, from the Isles of Scilly to the Cliffs of Moher and the Scottish Highlands. Navigate the Hebrides, Orkneys and Shetlands – magical islands all – in search of puffins and ponies, castles and cattle, whales and whiskey.


The Norwegian Fjords earn every one of their superlatives: awe-inspiring, majestic, magnificent. From Hardangerfjord and Lysefjord to Ulvikfjord, these forested landscapes, steep birding cliffs and nature reserves are home to incredible scenery and high adventure. Cross the Northern-Atlantic Ocean to Iceland and find pristine fjords and glaciated tundra, geothermal wonders and thundering waterfalls. Formed by volcanoes and settled by Vikings, Iceland his home to the astonishing, little-explored Westfjords, exceptional wildlife — think thousands of puffins, towering bird cliffs and whale watching.


Regardless of which expedition appeals to you, aboard Silver Wind you’ll enjoy a deeply immersive “wow” experience second to none. Silversea has one of the highest expedition personnel-to-guest ratios in all of expedition cruising. Every voyage features team of qualified specialists – naturalists, ornithologists, glaciologists, biologists, photographers, historians – with expertise tailored to the wildlife and wilderness of the region explored. These talented professionals are chosen for their passion and dedication to their specialised field, as well as for their openness, friendliness and genuine enthusiasm. From leading daily “Recap & Briefing” lectures and engaging discussions on board to hosting all excursions off-ship, the Expedition Team is an essential part of your experience.
