Silversea, an ultra-luxury cruise line, has released a new collection of 25 voyages for its highly anticipated expedition vessel, Silver Endeavour, the world’s most advanced luxury expedition ship. From May 2023 through March 2024, guests will journey to 116 of the planet’s most beautiful and remote cold-weather destinations across Northern Europe, the Arctic, and Antarctica, including 24 maiden calls for Silversea.
Ensuring the cruise line’s trademark level of comfort, Silver Endeavour will welcome guests in some of the most spacious and elegant venues in expedition cruising, including an expansive Otium Spa & Beauty Salon, two mudrooms, and the Observation Lounge, which offers 270-degree views of the surroundings, plus much more.
“Expanding the most diverse polar offering in ultra-luxury expedition cruising, we are delighted to unveil Silver Endeavour’s new collection of voyages for summer 2023 and winter 2023/2024,” said Conrad Combrink, SVP of Expedition, Destination and Itinerary Management, Silversea Cruises.
“With state-of-the-art expedition amenities, the industry’s highest space-to-guest ratio, and the leading team of experts on board, Silver Endeavour will deliver the most enriching experiences for guests in the world’s most remarkable destinations, as they journey in unparalleled comfort.”
25 New Voyages, 116 Destinations, 24 Maiden Calls
Silver Endeavour’s new voyage collection will feature 25 immersive expedition voyages, ranging in length from six to 18 days. With a PC6 classification, Silver Endeavour will journey deep into to the Polar Regions, extending the season to unlock unprecedented access to 116 destinations in some of the most remote regions of the world. The new voyages will incorporate 24 maiden calls, including the rarely explored Canadian High Arctic, including Hudson Bay, and the spectacular Ellesmere Island.
Silver Endeavour will spend the 2023 summer season exploring the British Isles, Iceland, and the Arctic – including Greenland, Svalbard, and the Canadian Arctic. From there, the ship will head south, returning to the White Continent in the winter of 2023-2024, offering guests even more opportunities to discover the Antarctic Peninsula, South Georgia, and the Falkland Islands.
Silver Endeavour’s new 2023-2024 voyage collection includes the following highlights:
Two Voyages to the British Isles & Iceland
Departing from London in May 2023, Silver Endeavour will sail two British Isles and Iceland expeditions of 13 and 14 days. The voyages will include brand new calls in destinations like Stranraer, Helensburgh, and Loch Eynort in the UK and Klaksvik, in the Faroe Islands.
Nine Voyages to the Arctic & Greenland
Silver Endeavour’s inaugural season in the Arctic will feature two of Silversea’s iconic 14-day Iceland and Svalbard expeditions, departing June 3 from Reykjavik and June 17 from Tromsø. Silver Endeavour will offer three expeditions to South Greenland and Nunavut, Canada, exploring scenic regions in Skjoldungen, Evighedsfjord, Prince Christian Sound, and more.
In July 2023, guests will explore West Greenland on a 10-day expedition, immersing in the culture and tradition of the Inuit and Greenlandic communities, and witnessing one of the world’s fastest-moving glaciers at Ilulissat Icefjord—a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
In August 2023, Silver Endeavour will sail a 10-day journey through the Canadian High Arctic, exploring the seldom-seen shores of Ellesmere Island, Cape York, and Qaanaaq, among other cultural and natural treasures in the region.
Rounding out the 2023 summer season, Silver Endeavour will undertake a 16-day expedition through East Greenland, searching for the perfect conditions for guests to view the Northern Lights. The voyage includes an extended three-day stay in Scoresby Sund, one of the world’s largest and longest fjord systems, and a visit to the world’s largest and rarely visited national park, the Northeast Greenland National Park.
14 Voyages to Antarctica
During the winter 2023-2024 season, Silver Endeavour will offer nine of Silversea’s popular six-day Antarctica Bridge fly-cruises. Offering the fastest, most direct route to the White Continent, Silversea’s Antarctica Bridge enables travelers to skip the Drake Passage, flying directly to King George Island in business-class comfort to embark the ship.
Silver Endeavour will also offer two departures of Silversea’s iconic 10-day Antarctic Peninsula expedition, with the objective of exploring the South Shetland Islands, the Antarctic Sound, and the fabled Cape Horn. Enabled by the ship’s PC6 classification, Silver Endeavour will journey deeper into Antarctica with longer explorations, including an 18-day voyage to the Antarctic Peninsula, South Georgia, and the Falkland Islands.
In 2024, Silver Endeavour will also sail two brand new 15- and 16-day expeditions, departing January 28 and February 12, respectively, exploring the Antarctic Peninsula, the Falkland Islands, and South Georgia. With an inbound/outbound flight between King George Island and Puerto Williams, guests on these two voyages will cross the Drake Passage only once.
Elegant Public Venues
With the highest space-to-guest ratio in expedition cruising, some of the industry’s most spacious all-balcony suites, and a range of elegant public venues, Silver Endeavour will take guests to the farthest corners of the earth in Silversea’s trademark level of comfort and style. The ship’s well-appointed public areas include:
The ship’s hub for expedition activity, this elegant lounge serves as a jumping off point for expedition briefings and recap sessions, as well as expert lectures, led by Silver Endeavour’s expedition team. The Explorer Lounge features a large LED screen that projects images captured by the ship’s remote-controlled gimbal camera system – an ultra-high-definition system that sits atop of the ship, capturing real-time views of scenery and wildlife at a magnification of up to 90 times that of a normal camera. The venue doubles as an atmospheric bar for a pre-dinner cocktail.
The Observation Lounge offers 270-degree views of the ship’s surroundings, with an elegant interior that’s perfect for afternoon tea, post-dinner cocktails, enjoying live music, and more.
Otium® Spa & Beauty Salon
Among the largest spas in expedition cruising, the Otium Spa will deliver moments of relaxation through Silversea’s signature wellness program, Otium, inspired by the ancient Roman lifestyle and built on the principles of indulgence, pleasure, and pampering.
The spa has three treatment rooms, a relaxation area, and separate thermal areas for men and women, both of which feature saunas, steam rooms, and showers. With incredible views in nearly every space, guests can enjoy pampering without ever losing sight of the destination.
The Pool Deck is fully enclosed with floor-to-ceiling glass windows, offering stunning panoramic views by day and an opportunity to dine under the stars by night. With a large central swimming pool, a whirlpool, and one of four dining options, the Pool Deck is sure to be a guest favorite.
Silver Endeavour is equipped with two mudrooms, allowing more flexibility for quick and seamless Zodiac launches. The mudrooms are outfitted with state-of-the-art expedition equipment, such as boot heaters, designated lockers for each suite, and LED screens for briefing sessions.
The expedition ship will also feature the Connoisseur’s Corner, Silversea’s signature cigar and cognac lounge; the Boutique, a retail shop offering a curated selection of fashion, jewelry, and souvenirs; and an expansive Fitness Centre, offering state-of-the-art equipment, expert-led group fitness classes, and personal training.
Silver Endeavour’s inaugural season begins on November 7, 2022 with a 7-Night Antarctica Bridge voyage sailing roundtrip from King George Island.
