Dining

Cap off each day of adventure with yet another unforgettable activity onboard your expedition cruise – dinner in The Restaurant. While this elegant venue also serves breakfast and lunch, it is the evening meal that guests look forward to most. This is the time to recount experiences ashore with fellow guests and discuss lecture topics with Expedition Team members while savouring fine cuisine and perfectly paired wines. When possible, the Captain will manoeuvre the ship so as to enjoy spectacular sunset views or to follow the flukes of migrating whales.

The Restaurant

Sparkling with silver, crystal and candlelight, The Restaurant serves contemporary, international cuisine with sophisticated elegance and impeccable service. Menus feature regional specialities unique to the voyage destination, for example, Roasted Chilean Sea Bass while cruising the Chilean fjords. During days at sea, choose something from La Collection du Monde, a series of signature dishes created exclusively for Silversea. The Restaurant offers open-seating dining, which means there are no assigned times, no assigned tables. You are free to dine when, where and with whom you please.

Entertaining

The ocean views and soothing sound of the surf can be quite intoxicating at sea, so it’s not surprising that daydreaming on deck is one of the most popular pastimes.
