Silversea Cruises has welcomed a new addition to its expedition fleet. Silver Endeavour will take travellers to the world’s most remote destinations, including both Polar regions, and will enter service in November 2022, replacing Silver Explorer from the 2022/2023 Antarctica season.
“One of the most luxurious expedition ships afloat, Silver Endeavour will accelerate our strategy of growth, enriching our offering to unprecedented levels and reaffirming our position as the leading ultra-luxury expedition cruise line,” said Roberto Martinoli, president and CEO, Silversea Cruises.
“The expedition cruising industry is poised to resume accelerated growth, driven by demand among high-end, affluent customers for travel to remote and hard-to-access destinations. Silver Endeavour will strengthen our polar offering, further diversifying our broad-ranging product.”
“To honour the spirit of expedition travel, we have renamed the ship Silver Endeavour – paying testament to one of history’s most famous vessels,” added Barbara Muckermann, chief commercial officer, Silversea Cruises. “Aboard Silver Endeavour, travellers will channel the same sense of discovery that guided pioneering explorers, such as James Cook, in bygone eras.”
Silver Endeavour was delivered to the now defunct Crystal Cruises last year as Crystal Endeavor and sailed until the company went into liquidation in January.
As part of the ongoing RCL Cares program, Silversea’s parent company Royal Caribbean Group will protect the deposits of guests who were originally booked on Crystal Endeavor and make a new booking on one of the group’s global brands – Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises and Silversea Cruises.
