On Shore with Silversea

With an emphasis on personalized cruising, Silversea has a dedicated Silver Shore Concierge to help you find shore excursions that meet your interests. Excursions are divided by activity level and atmosphere into two categories: Silver Shore Collection (unique, exclusive excursions, like flightseeing tours with private luncheons) and Silver Shore Excursions (guided small group tours). You'll be able to choose from a variety of activities, ranging from a helicopter ride over Barcelona to volcano exploration on the Reykjanes Peninsula in Iceland.

Travelers looking for action-packed adventures should book a cruise on one of the Silversea Expedition boats: Silver Explorer, Silver Galapagos, Silver Cloud and – debuting in summer 2020 – Silver Origin. Excursions from these ships are included in the cruise rate and offer cruisers the opportunity to explore the wildlife, geology and landscape of each destination with more physical activities.

Select voyages also offer pre-, mid- or post-voyage land adventures, which allow you to book excursions to top attractions within a given destination. Fares, which are not covered by the cost of your cruise, include accommodations, transportation transfers, a guide and some meals. All excursions are available to book online using the My Silversea tool between 120 and two days prior to your scheduled departure. Keep in mind that excursions and land adventures impose specific cancellation deadlines that vary by ship and itinerary; if you miss these deadlines, you'll incur a fee.

All ship Traveler Ratings are based on ratings provided under license by
