Silversea confirms 2021-2022 Antarctica Season with Three Ships departing from Chilean Ports
Luxury Cruise Guide
15 Sep, 2021
Silversea Cruises has entered into an agreement with the Chilean authorities to depart from Punta Arenas for its 2021-22 Antarctica season.
Silver Cloud and Silver Wind will set sail from Punta Arenas, while the line’s third Antarctica-bound ship, Silver Explorer, will continue with its scheduled plan to depart from Chile’s Puerto Williams from November 2021.
Guests on Silver Cloud and Silver Wind can now fly into Santiago, Chile, where they can stay overnight at a hotel before flying into Punta Arenas the next day to board the ship. Guests embarking on Silver Explorer will do so in Puerto Williams, except those who opt for the cruise line's “Antarctica Bridge” program, the first fly-cruise service to Antarctica, which will see travelers fly directly from Punta Arenas to King George Island in the “White Continent.”
On-board the Silver Cloud, Silver Wind and Silver Explorer, guests will get an opportunity to discover wildlife and icescapes of this remote region. Good to know: Each all-suite, butler-serviced ship employs a team of expedition experts who lead shore excursions for guests.
These professionals offer informative lectures, discussions, recaps on-board, guided explorations by Zodiac and kayak, and hikes and nature walks ashore, all of which are included in the fare.
Silversea’s Antarctica cruise collection includes a series of mostly 10-day explorations of the Antarctic Peninsula and the South Shetland Islands. Shorter sailings spanning five, six or nine days as part of the “Antarctica Bridge fly-cruise” program are also on offer. Longer journeys encompass the Antarctic Peninsula, South Shetland Islands, Falkland Islands, Elephant Island and South Georgia.
Two “Deep Antarctica” itineraries spanning 20 days, will trace a path beyond the Antarctic Circle, attempting to reach a latitude of 69 degrees south. Additionally, two sailings will also offer travelers the chance to witness the solar eclipse on December 4, 2021, from Antarctica, the only place on Earth where it can be viewed in totality.Find Great Cruise Deals
