Silversea's Italian Heritage
Like most success stories, the idea was simple. Specially designed ships with renowned European style that would be as elegant and spacious as some of the finest hotels, as warm and inviting as gracious homes. The components would be customized and complimentary, providing for each guest's individual tastes. The name "Silversea" was chosen as it connotes quality and luxury, and captures the romance and sensations of the sea.
What began as a truly original and innovative vision has since evolved into a sublime blend of sophisticated lifestyle, alluring worldwide destinations and international appeal — the signature elements that inspired the first Silversea voyage and have defined every voyage since.
With similar passion, the Lefebvre family has established The Maruzza Lefebvre D'Ovidio Foundation, a charitable organization supported by Silversea and dedicated to providing comprehensive palliative care services that embrace the lives of terminally ill patients and their families.
When you complete your first Silversea voyage, you become part of an exclusive circle of friends - the Silversea Venetian Society. Membership is an open door to a world of exclusivity, an extraordinary fellowship of international travelers who enjoy the Silversea lifestyle while exploring the world in luxurious fashion and receiving members-only benefits and privileges.
Be sure to log on to the Venetian Society area of the Silversea website. Members will find full information on benefits, programs and the newest offerings and savings of the Venetian Value Club.

Venture deep into regions where other vessels cannot go while enjoying a privileged lifestyle that is simply second-to-none.

The newest addition to Silversea’s fleet of ultra-luxury ships: the 100-guest Silver Galapagos. With sleek lines and a proven skill for navigating the waterways throughout the Galapagos Islands, she is naturally suited for in-depth exploration of this spectacular region. She offers all the intimate conviviality and elegant sophistication that has made Silversea the preferred choice for today’s discerning travelers. We offer two, 7-day year round itineraries, Saturday to Saturday, discovering the islands of the Galapagos. Each one is meticulously crafted to showcase both the highlights and the unexpected treasures that make every island unique. Wildlife encounters found nowhere else on earth, you can get up close as they are “fearless” of visitors. The “icon” of the Galapagos is perhaps the land tortoise and the blue-footed booby. The onboard expedition team and guest lectures are key to the experience. Seminars, daily briefings, previews of the next day’s outings. For photography-enthusiasts – the opportunity to photograph the nature and unique wildlife up close.
In 2014, Silversea's loyal following of adventure travelers can now explore the remote archipelagos of the vast Pacific aboard the sleek, 120-guest Silver Discoverer. She's the perfect platform for viewing these untamed landscapes, with all ocean-view suites and plenty of deck space so that a breaching whale or a pod of dolphins is always within sight. Her shallow draft allows her to navigate closer to shore, and with a fleet of 12 Zodiacs and a glass-bottom boat, guests can land on isolated shores and explore wetlands and submerged ecosystems, up-close and in-depth. Silver Discoverer will follow routes of ancient seafarers to some of the most isolated ecosystems of Southeast Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Micronesia, Melanesia and the Russian Far East.
