Today (18.6.), ultra-luxury cruise line, Silversea Cruises®, celebrated the return to service of its entire 10-ship fleet by welcoming Silver Wind® to London as part of the ship’s 10-day expedition cruise from London to Reykjavik.
Silversea has led the global restart of ultra-luxury cruising, successfully welcoming guests around the world. As well as hosting the only ultra-luxury world cruise in 2022, converting Silver Wind® into an ice-class vessel, and launching new culinary and wellness programmes since pausing operations in March 2020, the industry’s leading cruise line has continued on its trajectory of growth, taking delivery of three new ships.
Peter Shanks, Managing Director, UK & Ireland, Silversea Cruises, said:
„I am incredibly proud to see all of our ships now welcoming guests around the world and in particular to see Silver Wind here in London in all her splendour. After what has been a challenging period for the global travel industry we are delighted to be leading the global return of ultra-luxury cruising. We have come back stronger than before with a more all-inclusive door-to-door service, three news ships, and various product enhancements.”
After departing from Athens on May 28, the 274-guest Silver Wind is undertaking a collection of voyages to Northern Europe and the British Isles, before reaching Reykjavík to begin a summer of Arctic explorations that will include a crossing of the famed Northwest Passage in August. In October, Silver Wind will trace a path along the Pacific Coast of the United States, Central America, and South America, leading to the frozen wonderland of Antarctica for her inaugural season in the White Continent.
Silver Wind is embarking on her first voyages as an ice-class expedition vessel, complete with Zodiacs and kayaks—offering guests unforgettable encounters with nature and wildlife, and, in due course, expanding Silversea’s industry-leading polar offering. As well as 24 Zodiacs and 14 kayaks, guests travelling aboard Silver Wind now benefit from the knowledge of up to 28 expedition experts, plus a dedicated mudroom, a photo studio with state-of-the-art equipment, and a heated swimming pool.
