The Restaurant


Dining is just one of the many highlights on-board Silver Explorer. The Restaurant is the place where breakfast, dinner and lunch are served and whatever time of the day, it sparkles with elegance. And, thanks to the ship’s open-seating arrangement, you can dine as and when you choose. You can look forward to classic and modern French cuisine as well as signature dishes created exclusively for the line by acclaimed chefs from the prestigious Relais



Due to the outstanding refit which gave the Silver Explorer a modern sheen to go along with classical styling, the number of suites and staterooms was reduced from 122 to 66, meaning that this awe-inspiring vessel features some of the most spacious cabins in the whole of the Silverseas fleet. All of the staterooms on board feature a brilliant array of features throughout, in order to make sure you can experience your stay in the style and comfort you deserve. From a full size Italian marble bathroom, to a beautiful bedspread fitted with fine linens and down duvets, everything in your suite embodies luxury.

Show Lounge


The ideal place to unwind on-board is in the Panorama Lounge, where you can listen to the ship’s pianist play a selection of favourites as you enjoy complimentary drinks. Alternatively, enjoy fine cigars, cognacs and conversation in the sophisticated Connoisseur’s Corner. The ship’s theatre is the venue for a host of enriching lectures which will be focusing on each region you sail to, so that you´ll learn all about the region´s endemic wildlife and remarkable natural beauty. Wherever you choose to explore, your lectures will be presented by knowledgeable historians, state leaders, ambassadors, geographers and authors.

Fitness Center


Although intimately sized, the Silver Explorer offers a good choice of amenities to keep you busy on sea days. There are two Whirlpools perfect for relaxing in as you sail on by, while if you’d prefer an invigorating work out, there’s a well-equipped ´Fitness Centre´. Aerobics, yoga, Pilates and circuit training classes are available too and are always complimentary. The ship’s designer boutiques are perfect for those in search of a spot of retail therapy and offer a selection of jewellery, fashion and perfumes, as well as Silversea merchandise. If you’d like to keep in touch with friends or family, or indeed, research your next port of call, just head along to the Internet Café.
