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 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.

However, if you’re looking for more relaxed evening, head to Connoisseurs Corner or Tor's Observation Lounge for a drink and a chat.

Things to do

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.
