Ship Facilities

After a day of incredible expeditions, guests will be delighted to be able to refuel in one of two exquisite restaurants, serving a variety of expertly prepared dishes thanks to the team of dedicated chefs.

  • The Grill- enjoy the opportunity to cook your food directly at your table using lava stones, meaning that each bite of meat, fish and vegetables is cooked exactly how you like it. During the day, this restaurant becomes a rotisserie and gourmet salad and burger bar.
  • The Restaurant- at every meal time in the restaurant, guests can expect contemporary, international cuisine served by attentive staff in sophisticated surroundings. Featuring specialities using fresh ingredients from the regions visited, you can get a real taste for every destination.

The small size and passenger capacity of Silver Explorer means that evening entertainment is intimate and cosy, allowing everyone to wind down after a busy day of discovering new places.

If you enjoy live music and dancing, The Bar and The Panorama Lounge are great locations for sipping on a cocktail and hitting the dancefloor to the sound of some of the greatest hits of recent years. Meanwhile, The Show Lounge hosts a variety of live entertainment, from classical recitals to productions.

However, if you’re looking for more relaxed evening entertainment, Moonlight Movies shows popular films under the stars on the pool deck, while the elegant Champagne Room is a sophisticated spot to chat and enjoy a drink.

While the smaller size of this ship makes it a more intimate experience, Silver Explorer certainly isn’t lacking when it comes to the activities on offer. The Zagara Spa and Beauty Salon offers treatments such as Javanese Honey Steam Wrap, Hot Lava Rock Massage or Vital Aromatic Facial. Why not relax in the steam room and sauna, or try a Pilates class while onboard? However, the luxury doesn’t have to stop there as guests will be delighted to have the opportunity to browse boutique shops featuring designer labels from around the world.

Customer reviews for Silver Explorer

My husband and I are seasoned travelers, having cruised to Antartica, Galapagos, Tahiti, Vietnam, Greece and Russia and many other destinations. In our thirty or more cruises, we have expereinced all inclusive trips on Silverseas' competitors. Mostly, we have been pleased with trips and generally pleased with our recent cruise on Silver Explorer with the exception of our accommodations. We started with the least expensive cabin on the 3rd deck. This cabin is in the bow of the ship. There was a noise equivalent to a jack hammer at 30 second intervals triggered by the rising and falling of the rolling bow. After not sleeping the first night, we asked for a change of cabin. This seemed like a reasonable request since the ship was only half full. After an entire day of talking with the management, we were required to pay for an upgrade to the bow of the 4th deck. This cabin was only a little less noisy. We found Silversea's mangagement to be disinterested in our situation. Service was very good on the ship. Due to the small number of passengers, we were treated very well by the ship's staff, if not by the company. The Naturalists are well trained and were professional in their presentations. The shore excursions were average, certainly not up to par with Paul Gauguin or AmaWaterways. Dining options were felxible and convenient. You could choose to dine alone or with others and anytime during a two hour period. The food was fresh and well presented. Overall, the ship has benefits in terms of the all inclusive package but beware of booking a cabin in the bow of this ship, especially on the 3rd deck.
