This ship is not family-oriented. There are no children's facilities, programs or babysitting services. However, older children, particularly teenagers, would enjoy the Zodiac explorations and photographic opportunities, but parents need to be mindful Silver Explorer draws an adult crowd. Children under 6 years old are not permitted on Zodiacs. Babies younger than 1 year old are not allowed to board the ship. A signed and notarized waiver issued by Silversea is required for passengers traveling with children under 6.
