The Silver Endeavour, Silversea’s newest expedition ship, is expected to widen ultra-luxury travel’s most diverse polar offering by visiting more than 125 of the world’s most remote, extreme places through summer 2024 and winter 2024/2025. Silversea has announced 27 more voyages on the world’s most opulent adventure ship, departing between April 2024 and February 2025, with extra stops in Antarctica, the Arctic, the British Isles, and Iceland.
“Thanks to her strong ice capabilities, Silver Endeavour will embark on 27 voyages to some of the most remote destinations in Antarctica, the Arctic, the British Isles, and Iceland between April 2024 and February 2025,” says Conrad Combrink, Silversea Cruises’ SVP Expeditions, Destination, and Itinerary Management. “Silver Endeavour’s new 2024/2025 voyages will broaden the industry’s most diverse polar offering as the ship ventures off the beaten track to offer Silversea’s guests the complete expedition experience, as well as strengthening Silversea’s position as the leading ultra-luxury and expedition cruise line.” Silversea’s unique partnerships, a wealth of research, and destination experience will enable travellers to enjoy seamless connections, total comfort, and outstanding service from the beginning to the end of their excursions.”
