Silversea Cruises Guide
Wellness should be about balanced indulgence, not self-sacrifice - that's the philosophy behind Silversea's new programme called Otium, named after the Roman leisure time dedicated to bathing, talking, singing, drinking, eating and relaxing. The easygoing regime, being introduced on the new ship Silver Dawn in the spring of 2022, will include a 24-hour room-service menu of comfort food (including gourmet popcorn), as well as new spa treatments, new mattresses to give an even better nights sleep, relaxing baths prepared by suite butlers and hot chocolate served on your balcony while you admire the Arctic scenery. The line, now part of Royal Caribbean Group, launched two new ships - Silver Moon and Silver Origin - on successive days in 2021. A new Evolution-class being introduced from 2023, will be powered by hybrid technology that combines a fuel-cell system with batteries and dual-fuel engines with LNG as the main power source.
Why choose this cruise line?
Silversea's nine intimate luxury ships can show you the world in a far more personal, meaningful way. The ships can glide into small, secluded harbours not yet on the radar screen, or transport you on an expedition to some of the most remote regions of the globe.
At night, return to the gracious hospitality that reflects their Italian heritage - the relaxed, friendly camaraderie in the lounges and open bars where faces quickly become familiar and conversation strikes a common chord.
Silversea is passionate about service and with the experienced, highly trained personnel of a top luxury cruise line and a staff-to-guest ratio of nearly one-to-one, service excellence is guaranteed aboard the ships of Silversea.
