Silver Explorer for Families

Editor Rating
Families
1.0
Silver Explorer is not designed for youngsters. There are no facilities or programs for them, and there's no babysitting service. Older children and teenagers may enjoy the lectures, the hikes and Zodiac explorations. There were two children, about 8 or 9 years old, on our expedition. They seemed to be having a good time on the Zodiac tours and wildlife-spotting excursions -- and the tots were outfitted with appropriately sized parkas.

Children under the age of one cannot sail on Silver Explorer, and kids under six years old are not allowed onboard Zodiacs (and therefore not permitted to participate in any expedition excursions that require the use of a Zodiac). A signed and notarized waiver is required for passengers traveling with children under six years of age.
