Silver Explorer

Silversea's purpose-built Silver Explorer expedition ship (formerly the Prince Albert II) has been designed specifically for navigating waters in some of the worlds most remote destinations, including both of earth's polar regions. A strengthened hull with a Lloyd"s Register ice-class notation (1A) for passenger vessels enables Silver Explorer to safely push through ice floes with ease. A fleet of Zodiac boats allows Silversea Expedition guests to visit even the most off-the-beaten path locations and an expert Expedition Team provides insight and understanding to each unforgettable Silver Explorer cruise adventure.

Dining

Cap off each day of adventure with yet another unforgettable activity- dinner in The Restaurant. While this elegant venue also serves breakfast and lunch, it is the evening meal that guests look forward to most. This is the time to recount experiences ashore with fellow guests and discuss lecture topics with Expedition Team members while savouring fine cuisine and perfectly paired wines. When possible, the Captain will manoeuvre the ship so as to enjoy spectacular sunset views or to follow the flukes of migrating whales.

Weather permitting, lunch will be served in the sunshine on the outside deck, adding the elements of fresh sea air and panoramic views to the festive spirit as the ship journeys onward to the next exciting destination.

The Restaurant

Sparkling with silver, crystal and candlelight, The Restaurant serves contemporary, international cuisine with sophisticated elegance and impeccable service. Menus feature regional specialities unique to the voyage destination, for example, Roasted Chilean Sea Bass while cruising the Chilean fjords. During days at sea, choose something from La Collection du Monde, a series of signature dishes created exclusively for Silversea by the Grands Chefs Relais & Chateaux. The Restaurant offers open-seating dining, which means there are no assigned times, no assigned tables. You are free to dine when, where and with whom you please.
