Sail through the Southern Hemisphere with Silversea
Many of us have stayed relatively close to home over the past few years, when travel has been possible. Now that things are freer again, we’ve been encouraging our customers to see amazing destinations in the Southern Hemisphere, including Australia and Antarctica.
Silversea is one of the best ways to see both of these incredible places in style and utter comfort. An innovator in the ultra-luxury cruise industry, the line is known for its large-ship amenities aboard intimate, all-suite vessels with their atmosphere of conviviality and casual elegance, including expedition ships.
Its Antarctica trips are the very essence of transformative travel, embracing close encounters with an array of incredible wildlife in spectacular landscapes. Step aboard and you may find yourself taking a Zodiac cruise to meet local communities and kayaking glacial seas, all in the knowledge that you’ll be sitting down to feast on high-end cuisine in the evening.
