A holistic approach to wellness is encouraged on board with a fully integrated offering of exercise, fitness and spa therapies. Health lectures and nutritious dining options are available to complement the fitness centre, spa and pool.
The Silver Perspectives® Enrichment Programme includes lectures from guest speakers or members of the Expedition Team, Destination Consultants to advise on shore activities, Culinary and Wine Voyages and Bridge Sailings.
Adventure and Exploration ships offer a range of specialised trips focusing on wildlife, culture, history, scenery and photography. Marine exploration is enabled by a fleet of onboard Zodiacs, scuba-diving and snorkeling. Specialists take guided land tours in small groups to access remote, sensitive areas.
The Venetian Society is Silversea’s loyalty programme and offers voyage recognition, invitations to private parties and ship visitation privileges. There are also discounts on future sailings depending on how many days you have sailed with the company at the point of booking – 350 days sailing can earn a complimentary 7-day cruise.
The Maruzza Lefebvre D’Ovidio Foundation is an independent, family-run, non-profit organisation dedicated to the provision of palliative care and support for persons affected by life-threatening or life-limiting conditions and their families. Through the “One For Life” fundraising project Silversea guests can become actively involved in the Maruzza Foundation’s activities.
