First class cruise to Antarctica by Silversea


Private Journey


Expedition cruising has matured over the years, and a wide variety of craft and styles of travel is now available to suit all tastes and budgets. At the top of the range is Silversea: the luxuriousness of its vessels is only matched by the high quality of the facilities, staff and adventurous excursions. On this cruise where just about everything is included in the price you’ll travel to the Antarctic Peninsula on Silversea’s luxury cruise ship, the ice-strengthened  Silver Cloud, fully refurbished in 2017.

You don’t have to venture deep into this huge continent – larger than Europe – to have a rewarding experience of what Antarctica has to offer. This is one of the most frequent and popular itineraries to the White Continent, which visits the most accessible region around the slim finger of land and offshore islands reaching out from the main continental mass towards the southernmost tip of South America. You will observe prolific wildlife, extraordinary ice-carved landscapes and  evidence of the human impact – derelict whaling stations, and research outposts.

You’ll view the highlights from your ship, zodiac or on shore excursions. This expedition reveals the snow-drenched mountains and icebergs of these more accessible fringes of the White Continent. The cliffs and bays are brought to life by the chattering and wheeling of birdlife, sea-lions and penguins. You pass through the oft stormy Drake Passage and the Antarctic Convergence, where the upwelling of nutrients as warm water meets cold attracts wildlife in astonishing abundance
