Aboard Silver Discoverer, guests will be able to explore remote areas of Micronesia, Melanesia, Polynesia in addition to the Russian Far East, Southeast Asia, New Zealand and Australia, including one of its hidden treasures, the Kimberley. This vast area in North West Australia is three times the size of England and three-fifths the size of Texas.

The small-sized ship, the eighth in Silversea’s fleet, will become part of the Silversea Expedition fleet, which already includes Silver Explorer and Silver Galapagos. Since launching in 2008, Silversea Expeditions has established itself as the world’s leading, ultra-luxury expedition cruiseline enabling guests to view extraordinary scenery; get closer to marine life and wildlife; as well as viewing first hand some of the world’s last wildernesses in a manner that is sympathetic to the environment. All this is offered aboard authentic expedition ships with some of the world’s leading expedition experts.

Silver Discoverer is undergoing a major refurbishment prior to entering service on 1st March 2014 and will consist of five suite categories. She can accommodate up to 128 guests and has extensive facilities onboard including 12 Zodiac boats and a glass-bottom boat for unique exploration of marine life; a swimming pool; a gym and beauty salon; a restaurant and pool grill; a lecture room for in-depth stories and briefings about the destinations and a panoramic lounge. She weighs 5,218 tonnes, is 338 feet long and 51 feet wide.

Guests will benefit from the huge knowledge and experience of the highly-qualified Silversea Expeditions team consisting of 11 experts, from expedition leaders, divemasters and marine biologists to historians, geologists and naturalists.

Enzo Visone, Chief Executive of Silversea, said: “It is fitting that, in our 20th anniversary year, our newest ship will continue the Silversea tradition of reaching some of the most remote areas of the world. Silver Discoverer will bring our guests even closer to dramatic landscapes, historic locations, and ecologically important destinations – all in the comfort of one of the finest expedition ships operating today with all the trappings that our guests have come to expect of Silversea.”
