10 September 2013 by Alex Stewart

Silversea Cruises has announced that the company will be adding an additional ship to its fleet, bringing the total to eight luxury vessels and meaning that Silversea now have three Expedition style ships. The new ship will be christened Silver Discoverer and will enter service on 1 March 2014 after a major refurbishment.

The ship will carry just 128 passengers, who will be able to choose from five different suite categories: Explorer Suites, View Suites, Vista Suites, Veranda Suites and a Medallion Suite. She will feature a number of Silversea signature areas, such as The Restaurant, Lecture Room, The Discoverer Lounge, The Grill, a spa and a beauty salon. The ship's shallow draft will allow her to navigate closer to shore and there will be 12 Zodiac excursion craft and a glass-bottomed boat available for passengers to further explore each destination. The latter is a first for Silversea.

Silver Discoverer will cruise around South East Asia and explore 'even more remote and stunning destinations.' A number of departures will take place from Australian ports. Inaugural sailings have opened for sale and include 11-day Kimberley itineraries, 17-day Indonesian cruises and a voyage to Micronesia, Melanesia and Polynesia, departing from Cairns.

Silversea CEO Enzo Visone said,

'It's fitting that, in our 20th anniversary year, our newest ship will continue the Silversea tradition of reaching some of the most remote areas of the world'.
