Ultra-luxury line Silversea Cruises continues to diversify and enhance their adventure cruise offerings as part of their Silversea Expeditions brand that includes three intimate vessels: Silver Explorer, Silver Galapagos, and Silver Discoverer. Beginning this year, Silversea will offer special Theme Expedition Voyages that explore the furthest reaches of the globe – in comfort.

“These specialty expeditions enable travelers to leverage their personal passions and interests to experience a more meaningful journey of discovery,” said Kristian Anderson, Silversea’s senior vice president and general manager for the Americas.

The themes, briefly, are:

Birding & Ornithology Expedition Voyages: From spotting bald eagles in Alaska to witnessing the blue-footed boobies of Galápagos, these fascinating specialty journeys available on Silver Explorer, Silver Galapagos, and Silver Discoverer offer exceptional birding opportunities that can be enjoyed by casual bird enthusiasts, serious birdwatchers with a “life list” of bird sightings, and just about anyone who loves interacting with nature.

Wellness Expedition Voyages: Guests can improve their well-being while journeying aboard Silver Discoverer to destinations that are well off the beaten path in Southeast Asia and the South Pacific. A team of wellness specialists hosts a program of fitness training, including stretching, yoga, and Pilates. Other highlights include daily lectures and cooking demonstrations focused on balanced nutrition, plus guests may enjoy a complimentary spa massage treatment.
