New Itineraries in the Galapagos Silversea

Ultra-luxury cruise line Silversea have announced two new Galapagos itineraries commencing from March 2017. Approved by the Galapagos National Park, the sailings will each be seven nights long onboard Silversea small-ship Silver Galapagos.

Accommodating just 100 guests, Silver Galapagos offers a comfortable and intimate cruising experience on a ship small enough to have minimal impact on the protected National Park.

Itineraries focus on the north or the west with highlights such as Genovesa, San Cristobal, Floreana, Post Office Bay and more. Both itineraries provide ample opportunities for wildlife watching.

An enhanced list of destinations will be made available featuring popular highlights such as Wall of Tears, Darwin Bay and Black Turtle Cove plus the opportunity to enjoy local hotel stays and land based tours.

Silver Cloud has set an impeccable standard of ultra-luxury cruising as the all-suite inaugural ship for Silversea Cruises. Spacious yet intimate, the smaller sized ship currently accommodates 296 guests and embodies the atmosphere of a grand hotel.

Post refurbishment and in preparation for itineraries including polar-regions, Silver Cloud will limit guest numbers to 200. Ensuring a comfortable cruise for all onboard and complying with sustainable tourism guidelines.

"By converting Silver Cloud into an ice-class ship for our expedition fleet, we will be better positioned to meet the increasing demand for comfortable adventure travel, particularly to the Arctic and Antarctica, places that are best explored by small ships specially equipped with ice-strengthened hulls." Said Silversea CEO Enzo Visone.

As members of the Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators and the International Association of Antarctic Tour Operators, Silversea Cruises will continue to uphold sustainable practice to help preserve our delicate polar regions.

Though the menu remains in development, Atherton is known around the world for his signature dishes that includes his Scallop Sashimi.

Guests will also be treated to a tour of one of Ha Long Bay's markets with Atherton, where he will give guests tips of choosing fresh fish and meat as well as tips on planning a menu.

This voyage will be the ultimate in fine dining in 2013."

Jason Atherton added: "I am very excited to be boarding my first ever sea journey and cooking for these distinguished guests. It will not only be a first for me but also a great challenge to deliver Michelin-star cuisine on board one of Silversea’s premier ships. The market trip will provide me with the opportunity to pass on years of experience to the guests who join me, from cooking tips to choosing fresh fish and meat, as well as menu planning. It will also be a lot of fun!"

Silversea Acquire Galapagos Expedition Ship Silversea Cruises have acquired a new expedition class ship along with a Galapagos travel company.

The cruise line are known to be looking to expand their luxury expedition cruising, and earlier this month announced that they were looking to acquire an expedition ship with an ice-breaker hull. So, it is no surprise to see they have acquired another ship to offer cruises to off-the-beaten-track locations.

The Galapagos Explorer II is a different kettle of fish to the ship mentioned earlier this month, the 100 passenger, 4,077 tonne ship showcases that they are putting a real emphasis on expedition cruising. Silversea also acquired upmarket Ecuadorian tourism company Canodros and will continue to operate their new ship under its current name until September 2013, when she will be given the full Silversea treatment.

The former Renaissance ship already boasts 50 suites, a restaurant, piano bar, main lounge, outdoor bar and two outdoor whirlpools — so anyone cruising onboard her in the next 15 months won't be short changed!

Steve Odell, Silversea's Senior Vice President, UK, Europe and Asia Pacific, told Cruise Critic: —This has been in the making for several months and this is one of the areas that we have been keen to expand into. No one is offering a luxury cruise experience to the Galapagos Islands of the standards of Silversea... ——.

For the time being bookings will continue to be taken by Canodros and it will retain is Ecuadorian crew. Once the ship officially enters the Silversea fleet next year she will be renamed, though its unclear what the plans are for Canodros or her crew as yet.

Silversea Seek Second Icebreaker Expedition Ship Silversea Cruises, the luxury cruise line, has announced that they are looking for another vessel with an ice-strengthened hull to become their second exploration class ship.

The cruise line had already announced plans to build a new luxury ship, but following the success of Silver Explorer they are now looking to expand their exploration cruises, as well as their luxury offering. Silver Explorer recently cruised around the British Isles taking in Portsmouth, Lyme Regis, Dartmouth, Ireland and the Western Isles of Scotland, before arriving in Greenock to raise the profile of the ship.

Mike Bonner, the cruise line's General Manager, said: "We want to expand this side of the portfolio but it is expensive to build a new ship so we are looking for a ship to convert... Expedition cruising is growing hugely."

New itineraries are being considered for 2014, with the additional ship in mind, including the Northwest Passage and the Pacific Islands. These would compliment Silver Explorer's current itineraries that take the ship to Antarctica in winter and the Arctic in summer.

This frugal approach to acquiring a ship for conversion and refitting, as opposed to custom building two new ships, shows the cruise line are being financially sensible in the current climate.
