Silversea Cruises is Italian-family owned and got its start with the Silver Cloud in 1994. The Silver Wind followed two years later and the larger Silver Shadow and Silver Whisper in 2000 and 2001. Larger tonnage is under construction and the line recently announced its new expedition ship, HSH Prince Albert.

This ultra-luxury vessel has the highest passenger-to-crew ratio of any ship making service personable and impeccable – clearly the best afloat!

The ship received a major update during the winter 2002-2003 season and was updated with all new soft furnishings and some added amenities to bring her in line with her newer and larger sisters. The Silver Wind will have its biggest ever refit sometime during the winter 2009 season with some exciting soon to be announced additions. Stay tuned for more…
