When it comes to luxury, there are few things as indulgent as spending a week or two on a mega yacht. So if that’s your idea of a dream vacation, you’ll be excited to know that the ultra-luxury Silver Endeavour is setting sail this November. This top-of-the-line vessel offers all the amenities and a high level of service you would expect from a world-class cruise experience. So whether you’re looking for an intimate escape with just your closest friends or want to lavish in luxury, the Silver Endeavour is sure to please.
Silver Endeavour is the fifth expedition ship in Silversea Cruises’ fleet of 11 and is by far the most luxurious. Explicitly designed to take travellers to both Polar Regions, this ultra-luxury mega yacht features spacious all-suites, fine dining and onboard entertainment.
Silver Endeavour will offer expedition cruises to some of the world’s most remote destinations starting in November 2022. The Silver Endeavour will take travellers to once-in-a-lifetime destinations such as the Arctic and Antarctica. The Antarctic Bridge itineraries are particularly popular, and the Silver Endeavour will be offering these cruises in the 2022/2023 season to King George Island and The Antarctic Sound.
King George Island is the gateway to Antarctica, and there’s no shortage of things to see and do. The Antarctic Sound is located at the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula and is home to some of the continent’s most iconic landscapes. Cruising through iceberg-filled waters is an unforgettable experience, and there are plenty of opportunities for wildlife viewing, from penguins to whales.
Silver Endeavour boasts state-of-the-art amenities, an industry-leading Zodiac-to-guest ratio, kayaks and a crew-to-guest ratio of approximately 1:1, making it the perfect choice for luxury travellers seeking an unforgettable experience. The Silver Endeavour also features multiple restaurants, bars and lounges; an expansive spa; a two-storied solarium with a swimming pool and whirlpool; and an array of indoor and outdoor observation areas spread over its eight public decks.
“One of the most luxurious expedition ships afloat, Silver Endeavour will accelerate our strategy of growth, enriching our offering to unprecedented levels and reaffirming our position as the leading ultra-luxury expedition cruise line,” said Roberto Martinoli, President and CEO, Silversea Cruises. “The expedition cruising industry is poised to resume accelerated growth, driven by demand among high-end, affluent customers for travel to remote and hard-to-access destinations. Silver Endeavour will strengthen our polar offering, further diversifying our broad-ranging product. With the ongoing support of Royal Caribbean Group, we are enhancing the cruise experience for our guests, unlocking the world’s most rewarding destinations in a way that only Silversea can.”
“To honour the spirit of expedition travel, we have renamed the ship Silver Endeavour—paying testament to one of history’s most famous vessels,” said Barbara Muckermann, Chief Commercial Officer, Silversea Cruises. “Aboard Silver Endeavour, travellers will channel the same sense of discovery that guided pioneering explorers, such as James Cook, in bygone eras.”
Silversea Cruises’ ultra-luxury all-suite cruise ships include Silver Dawn℠, Silver Shadow℠, Silver Whisper®, Silver Spirit®, Silver Muse®, and Silver Moon℠. In addition, the cruise line’s expedition ships include Silver Origin®, Silver Wind®, Silver Explorer® and Silver Cloud®.
