Silver Discoverer

Silversea’s third expedition ship is expertly engineered to explore the most isolated archipelagos of the Pacific. Her small size and shallow draft allow close-up access to rugged coasts well beyond the reach of ordinary vessels. And she has been newly refurbished to help guests maximize their experience and build a genuine connection with the regions they visit.

Spacious decks and panoramic public rooms mean the drama of the unexpected is never far from view. A fleet of zodiacs allows exploration from the water or remote landings anywhere nature or curiosity dictate. Since many of our expeditions sail to some of the world’s most pristine coral reef systems, there’s a glass-bottom boat for underwater viewing along with a full complement of snorkelling equipment and a dive programme for advanced divers.

We’ve also taken great care to assemble a truly outstanding Expedition Team, composed of experts in the culture, history and wild life of the destinations, to present informal talks, guide Zodiac outings and lead small-group explorations ashore. While back on board, every creature comfort awaits; an ocean-view suite, in-suite bar and the head-to-toe pampering of a butler; elegant lounges and open bar where fellow travellers gather to swap tales about their day’s adventures; and cuisine that meets Silversea’s standards of culinary excellence – which are lofty, indeed. Imaginative menus in The Restaurant feature both regional offerings and dishes inspired by Relais & Chateaux. Additional amenities include a sun-catching pool deck, an internet cafe, a fitness centre, and a beauty and massage centre – particularly alluring after an adventurous day ashore.

Cuisine from Celebrity Restauranteurs

As your ship changes latitude and longitude, the menu changes to reflect the flavors of the region. The main event: inspired dining. Step into The Restaurant and you know you've arrived for a very special dining experience. The Restaurant is elegant, but not stuffy. The European-trained waiters are attentive and personable. The finest wines from an extensive list are carefully chosen and poured into sparkling European crystal glasses. Polished Christofle silverware is laid on crisp linens. The stage is now set for the main event: inspired dishes created by Silversea's Master Chefs. These dishes are complemented by those of La Collection du Monde, created by the world-class chefs of culinary partner Relais & Chateaux. Marked by innovation and creativity, you're sure to enjoy these epicurean delights and a dining experience that rivals the best restaurants the world over. Evening menus allow guests to sample a variety of dishes from the Silversea Signature Series which combine classic French cooking techniques with the savory spices and sumptuous fare of foreign lands. For lovers of authentic Italian cuisine, the ship's Terrace Cafe is transformed each evening into the alternative dining venue "Cucina Italiana" featuring delectable dishes from the different regions of Italy. Silversea also offers "Light & Healthy Cuisine" for guests wishing alternate menu selections for a low fat, low cholesterol and low sodium diet. The ships feature single seating dining so that guests may dine when and with whom they wish.

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 luxury cruise line.
