Fabulous Trip!!!

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on Silver Explorer

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We have taken over 80 cruises and this was the best cruise we have ever taken. For 18 days the staff were attentive and happy. The expedition team is incredible! Very knowledgeable and very helpful. Daily briefings were extremely informative and the shore excursions that we took twice each day when weather permitted were wonderful. The food was great and well presented. There was a wide variety of ...

Exceptional repatriation following COVID19 event.

Review for a World Cruise Cruise on Silver Explorer

Graham P
6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

During a recent cruise on the Silver explorer of the Chilean fjords, a fellow guest was transferred to the local medical centre in the beautiful village of Tortel. As the local authorities were concerned that the guest was possibly infected with COVID19, all guests who were ashore were directed to return to the ship immediately. The ship was shortly thereafter granted permission to continue the ...

Over priced, poor quality

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on Silver Explorer

10+ Cruises • Age 80s

For our second cruise in Antarctica we chose Silversea and, sadly, paid a lot of money for what turned out to be lower quality than our first cruise on Seabourn, Contrary to the spin from the company, this ship does not offer five star luxury; at best it is probably a three star experience. Our very large cabin (we got a two level upgrade) like most of the ship is not well designed or decorated. ...

Antarctica Expedition Cruise

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on Silver Explorer

Charles Martel
6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

We always wanted to cruise the Antarctic. Traveling below the Antarctic Circle is on my wife's "bucket list". Very few cruises advertised as "Antarctic", even attempt to get close to the Antarctic circle. Ships with a low ice rating never do. It would not be safe. So based on our research and our good experience on the Silver Galapagos in 2016 we booked a Silver Seas Expedition cruise. We ...

Wonderful Antarctica Cruise

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on Silver Explorer

10+ Cruises • Age 20s

Our travel started out very poorly, with American Airlines execution failures causing us to arrive in Buenos Aires 12 hours late with half our baggage. Bags didn't catch up to us until we returned to Ushuaia after the cruise. It was all AA's fault,but Silversea really stepped up to make the cruise a roaring success for us. They waited for us at the EZE airport for over an hour while I argued ...

Amazing cruise to Antaractic!

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on Silver Explorer

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Our cruise onboard the SilverSeas Explorer was spectacular from start to finish. The ship, crew, food, Captain and Expedition staff were all first rate. It is very hard to describe the feeling you get when visiting Antarctica. I was just in awe of the beauty and power of nature. We arrived independently so I can not speak to the travel arrangements made by SilverSeas. The port of Ushuaia is a ...

Antarctica, the Falklands & South Georgia - a High Value, Great Service Winner

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on Silver Explorer

Travelgal 2323
2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

I am active travel and a luxury travel fan, but I also look for good value in both. When I went to research this particular itinerary, I compared three of the top brands and for me, Silversea was a hands-down winner. In addition, because I booked early, I was bumped to Business Class on my flights - nice. I also blog about my travel experiences as a hobby, so if you'd like to see a more ...

Ushuaia to Valparaiso, Chile on Silver Explorer

Review for a World Cruise Cruise on Silver Explorer

Garth Ramsey
First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

Its the only way to see the Chilean coast inlets and scenery short of having your own boat. There are no roads or habitation in most of the areas we visited. Excursions by zodiac to see wildlife and glaciers were amazing. The ship was small by cruise ship standards but was therefore able to sail in confined fiords and through narrow passes. The food and service was excellent. Nothing was too ...

Antarctica NO .... Chilean Fjords YES

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on Silver Explorer

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

I chose this cruise because I wanted to see this part of the world. A better name would have been Patagonia and Chilean Fjords. Antarctica was not really covered. Ushuaia was a loveley port, but the ship did not provide an overnight or even an option to discover Antarctica. Luckily I decided to stay an extra day and forgo the charter flight from BA on the same day. Silversea provided an ...

Patagonia and Chilian Fjord cruise not truly expedition as represented

Review for a South America Cruise on Silver Explorer

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

The date indicated on the form for this review states it is a 14 night Antartica cruise. In fact it was the Patagonia and Chilean Fjord Cruise. This was on an expedition ship and advertised as an expedition cruise. WE have been on two previous Silversea expedition cruises (Galapagos an Sub Antarctic islands of New Zealand) and two Linblad expedition cruises (Alaska and Arctic). This cruise ...
