Silver Discoverer

The 120-guest Silver Discoverer is the perfect ship from which to explore the enchanting archipelagos of the vast Pacific. For an expedition vessel, Silver Discoverer is fabulously stylish, yet efficient, her small size and shallow draft allowing her to explore coastlines up-close, and to anchor in bays that are inaccessible to bigger ships. 12 Zodiac craft carry passengers to isolated beaches, and a glass-bottom boat reveals submerged and surreal ecosystems.

Even onboard, guests are never far from stunning views, with all ocean-view suites and generous deck space from which to watch whales or dolphins splashing alongside. The Explorer Lounge also enjoys sweeping vistas, and provides passengers with a sleek spot to swap stories or relax with a cocktail, as does the Pool Bar by the small, refreshing outdoor pool.

A large fitness centre and a well appointed beauty salon provide further diversions, but the real draw is the team of resident experts, including marine biologists, historians and naturalists, all offering in-depth knowledge of the alluring destinations.

Menus on Silversea ships reflect the high standards of Relais & Chateaux, their culinary partner. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served at the Grill by the poolside. Lunch is light, but in the evening, substantial steaks and other prime cuts and sparkling fresh seafood sizzle on a volcanic rock hotplate. The Discoverer Lounge is another option for breakfast and lunch, both served buffet style, with hot dishes available and plenty of sushi and sashimi and salads at lunch. The Restaurant offers chic décor and cutting edge cuisine from 7, with no set times or assigned tables. Room service is available all day, through to 11pm.


A piano player performs in the Explorer Lounge during cocktail hours and after dinner.


Regular lectures, daily recaps and briefings are a key feature of life onboard the Silver Discoverer, with the resident team of expert biologists, geologists, historians and expedition leaders delivering informative and inspiring talks about the destinations.


The small but well-appointed Beauty and Massage Room provides spa treatments as well as hair styling, manicures, pedicures and massages.


The Silver Discoverer’s expedition team lead small group explorations and hikes ashore, and also guide Zodiac outings. Snorkelling and diving are available too, in order to view pristine coral reefs and abundant and colourful marine life.
