Silversea Cruises – a brand, which makes the ordinary, extraordinary.

Date Posted: 08/05/2017

Known as the world’s leading ultra-luxury cruise line, it is no secret that Silversea create some of the finest, one-of-a-kind ocean journeys, where elegance permeates every detail aboard their yacht-style vessels. An ultimate luxury cruise experience, which offers a unique combination of boutique-style interiors and casual elegance, making the suites on each ship a home away from home.

Unlike other cruise lines, Silversea’s ships only accommodate between 100 and 596 guests, keeping the atmosphere on board rather intimate.  Sailing to over 800 destinations on all seven continents, Silversea are proud of their nine smaller ships, which can visit remote ports of call that larger ships can’t reach. The unique layout of the ships makes it possible for all suites to feature ocean views, many with a private veranda. The spacious accommodation options offer one of the highest space-per-guest ratios, while the onboard facilities - such as the dining venues - are recognised as being amongst the finest at sea.  

The latest addition to Silversea’s fleet is the newly built Silver Muse - an inspirational work of art which significantly raises the bar in the ultra-luxury cruise market. It comes with a wealth of enhancements, satisfying the requirements for comfort, service and quality of the most discerning travellers. Calling at 34 countries and 130 ports in its first year at sea, this ship will redefine ocean travel, enhancing the hallmarks of the Silversea experience – small-ship intimacy and spacious all-suite accommodation.

With a staff-to-guest ratio of nearly one-to-one, service excellence is guaranteed, with personalised butler service in every one of the seven suite categories. However, Silver Muse isn’t all about the ultra-luxurious accommodation. Renowned for culinary excellence and innovative spirit, Silversea offers at least two dining choices on every ship and Silversea Muse is no exception, with eight different venues, allowing guests to try dishes from around the world.  These venues come as a replacement of the typical cruise ship’s large main dining room, and each has a capacity of around 150 people, making bonding with fellow guests easier.

Last month, Silver Muse officially launched the onboard spa Zagara Beauty, which melds the company’s beautiful Italian heritage it takes guests on a journey of the five senses. From the Mood Room with personalised music, video and lighting, to a selection of infused treatment oils and teas to create unmatched spa experience at sea, which promises an oasis of relaxation and luxury.

Just like the rest of Silversea’s ships, Silver Muse is all-inclusive, which means almost all discretionary onboard expenses are included: butler service in every suite, dining, room-service, all beverages throughout the ship, onboard gratuities, and even roundtrip transportation from the pier to the local town in most ports.  Enjoy a lively get-together with new-found friends without requesting the bar bill, plus a minibar with your favourite brands without a costly reminder when you disembark – it has all been taken care of.  All-inclusive and completely exclusive.

Silversea’s fleet is divided into two the classic ocean side of Silversea, which will ignite your passions to drive into the finer things in life and can sail up narrow waterways into the heart of a city or right at the pier while others must anchor off shore and there’s the Silversea Expeditions, which can transport you to the furthermost boundaries of the planet. So, if you’re looking for ultimate luxury with a difference, Silversea is the perfect choice. Our very own John Hays recently returned from the brand new Silver Muse, he said: “It was my first time on a Silversea ship and I loved it. Elegant, relaxed and sophisticated with great food and service.”
