“Luxury travel does not just mean opulence, comfort and a plethora of amazing amenities on offer at a destination; it is the full journey of the traveler from the point they make that first phone call to discuss their needs. The service they receive, the knowledge of the travel consultant, the journey to their port of call should all have an air of being a cut-above before they arrive at a resort or location that will astonish. Luxury travel means you can sit back, relax and enjoy the experience safe in the knowledge that every aspect will surpass expectation.” — Bailey Robinson

Travelers today are looking for off the “beaten path” destinations that will provide them with the characteristics of immersion and adventure, complemented by the luxury of fine dining and wine, spa experiences all while indulging in the very best levels of personal and attentive service.

Silversea’s small luxury ships are designed for those who delight in the thrill of discovery while indulging mind and body in the most lavish surroundings imaginable. All accommodations are spacious, ocean-view suites that include butler service, and most include private verandas. Silversea voyages and cruise expeditions sail to over 800 destinations on all seven continents, more than any other cruise line. Our intimate, ultra-luxury ships can sail up narrow waterways into the heart of a city, or tie up right at the pier while others must anchor off shore. And for those who yearn to explore the new and unknown, Silversea Expeditions can transport you to the furthermost boundaries of the planet. Renowned for culinary excellence and innovative spirit, Silversea’s luxury cruises offer a choice of open-seating dining options throughout the fleet, as well as several specialty venues aboard all non-expedition ships.

We wish to share the beauty of nature and nature-inspired art with you. We will do so in the most sustainable way possible.

We offer personally designed tours to carefully selected destinations. We deliver a high level of personal service and attention by providing a high guide to guest ratio and a guaranteed small group size.

Halfway between the northern tip of Norway and the North Pole lies a wonderland of undisturbed Arctic wilderness. From May to September, the frozen seas and lands of Svalbard are transformed into a bustling scene of hectic activity by flowering plants, migratory birds and marine mammals, as well as a handful of year-round resident species.
Clearly this is not a cruise ship in the ordinary sense. On Star Clippers, you will find that there are no rigid schedules. You are free to do as you wish with your days – and evenings. To entertain you, we bring local performers on board to give passengers an authentic taste of the local music and arts.
So rather than enduring another Broadway revue, you can enjoy the conviviality of fellow shipmates while a live band plays tropical tunes from a real paradise. The Captain and crew are superb improvisers of the kind of light-hearted fun you’ll only find on Star Clippers. The Captain’s daily briefing on deck is wonderfully informative and a chance to hear some great story-telling as well. And there are other events and activities, such as knot tying and navigation classes, that have evolved from Star Clippers’ sailing heritage. In fact, our passengers tell us that it’s the easy-going informality of Star Clippers that makes a cruise with us so enjoyable.
