We are happy to sail against the tide. While most cruise lines build larger and ever-larger ships, we prefer to stay small. In this way we can preserve the special Silversea experience our guests have come to expect ... the intimate ambience, personal service and access to more intriguing secluded ports.

In the world of upscale cruising, less is more... considerably more, as our seven small ships offer infinite opportunities across all seven continents.
