Silversea’s New Specialty Cruises

If your passion is birding, photography, scuba diving, wellness or gastronomy, check out the new collection of specialty cruises from Silversea Expeditions.

Kristian Anderson, Silversea’s senior vice president and general manager for the Americas, said: “These speciality expeditions enable travelers to leverage their personal passions and interests to experience a more meaningful journey of discovery.”

Offered on select sailing dates, the voyages are briefly recapped as follows:

Birding & Ornithology Expedition Voyages: From spotting bald eagles in Alaska to witnessing the blue-footed boobies of Galápagos, the journeys available on Silver Explorer, Silver Galapagos, and Silver Discoverer offer birding opportunities that can be enjoyed by casual bird enthusiasts, serious birdwatchers with a “life list” of bird sightings, and just about anyone who loves interacting with nature.

Wellness Expedition Voyages: Guests can improve their well-being while journeying aboard Silver Discoverer to destinations that are well off the beaten path in Southeast Asia and the South Pacific. A team of wellness specialists hosts a program of fitness training, including stretching, yoga, and Pilates. Other highlights include daily lectures and cooking demonstrations focused on balanced nutrition, plus guests may enjoy a complimentary spa massage treatment.

Photography Expedition Voyages: Photo walks, onboard lectures, and workshops with a professional photographer enable the guests of Silver Explorer and Silver Discoverer to get the best out of their photography equipment and capture some of nature’s unexpected moments in some of the world’s most exotic destinations.

Diving Expedition Voyages: The natural treasures of remote atolls and the underwater worlds of Indonesia, Micronesia, Melanesia, and Polynesia are revealed on a scuba diving program presented by Silver Discoverer’s onboard dive masters and expedition team.

Culinary Expedition Voyages: Designed for the adventurous traveler who is a gourmet at heart, these theme-focused expedition cruises aboard Silver Explorer offer an array of culinary events on board and ashore — in addition to explorations of the natural, cultural, and historic landmarks visited along the way.

Silversea Cruises‘ itineraries encompass all seven continents and feature luxury cruises to the Mediterranean, Caribbean, both polar regions and more than 800 destinations in between.
