Silversea Celebrate a Decade of Exploration
Posted by The Cruise Specialists on 7 June, 2018.
On 3 June, Silversea Expeditions proudly celebrated 10 years of luxurious expedition cruising. On this momentous day, the ultra-luxury Silver Cloud departed London’s Tower Bridge amid great elation to honour Silversea Expeditions’ very first voyage, which sailed under Tower Bridge for Svalbard a decade ago to the day.
It is indeed an important milestone to celebrate, as the vision set forth by Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, Silversea’s Chairman, has been brought to fruition. This vision has connected people with the world’s most spectacular landscapes and culture, leading to a fostering of respect and great care for the planet and its inhabitants. Over the last 10 years, the company’s commitment to environmental sustainability and humanitarian efforts have spanned the globe – including a mammal acoustic survey in the Cook & Phoenix Islands, the first-ever cruise ship call in Bangladesh in 2017, and the partnership announcement in 2017 with ORCA, one of the UK’s leading marine conservation charities.
Looking ahead, the future of ultra-luxury expedition cruising is in safe hands with Silversea. With a Northeast Passage crossing planned, and additional voyages to the Bay of Bengal, the Russian Far East, Antarctica, and Australia’s Kimberley Coast, among others, the cruise line will continue to push industry boundaries. Of special note are two Silver Discoverer cruises that depart in summer 2019 for Borneo’s Camp Leakey – a renowned refuge for orangutans, to which the cruise company enjoys exclusive access and has made various donations to support the protection and research of the primates.
