Silversea renames Prince Albert II
Silversea is renaming the ship in order to reinforce its brand name and to align it with the cruise line's other five ships, Silver Cloud, Silver Wind, Silver Whisper, Silver Shadow, and Silver Spirit.
As their first foray into expedition cruises, the Prince Albert II has proved very successful and popular with the loyal Silversea guests, and there is also a possibility of adding more expedition ships later on, all of which would also have the "Silver" name.
The only thing changing about Silversea's luxury expedition ship is its name. The Silver Explorer is a Lloyd's Register 1A ice-rated vessel offering marvellous opportunities for its guests to explore the Arctic and Antarctic (and all places in between).
The ship has the largest average size accommodations of any expedition ship. Guests enjoy spacious, ocean-view accommodations (many with French balconies or large private verandas), butler service, gourmet cuisine, warm hospitality and personalized service (with a crew-to-guest ratio of nearly one to one). Like Silversea's other ships, the Silver Explorer also offers a generous selection of all-inclusive shipboard amenities, including complimentary beverages, bottled water, wines and spirits served throughout the ship, 24-hour room service, stocked in-suite beverage cabinet and all gratuities.
