Silversea Cruises’ newest expedition ship, the 128-guest Silver Discoverer, went on sale in September for her first season starting in March 2014. The eighth vessel in Silversea’s fleet, she will become part of the Silversea Expeditions fleet, which includes Silver Explorer and Silver Galapagos. Discoverer will sail remote areas of Micronesia, Melanesia and Polynesia in addition to the Russian Far East, Southeast Asia, New Zealand and Australia.

Discoverer is undergoing a major refurbishment and will go into service with five suite categories. She is equipped with 12 Zodiac boats and a glass-bottom boat for exploration of marine life, a swimming pool, a gym and beauty salon, a restaurant and pool grill, a lecture room for in-depth stories and briefings about the destinations and a panoramic lounge. The Silversea Expeditions team consists of 11 experts from expedition leaders, divemasters and marine biologists to historians, geologists and naturalists.

“It’s fitting that, in our 20th anniversary year, our newest ship will continue the Silversea tradition of reaching some of the most remote areas of the world,” said Enzo Visone, Silversea’s CEO. “Silver Discoverer will bring our guests even closer to dramatic landscapes, historic locations and ecologically important destinations — all in the comfort of one of the finest expedition ships operating today with all the trappings that our guests have come to expect of Silversea.”

These destinations will include the Kimberley in Australia and Wild Siberia: The Sea of Okhotsk.
